Which of the following most logically completes the passage?

Garnet and RenCo each provide health care for their employees. Garnet pays for both testing of its employeesâ€™ cholesterol levels and treatment of high cholesterol. This policy saves Garnet money, since high cholesterol left untreated for many years leads to conditions that require very expensive treatment. However, RenCo dose not have the same financial incentive to adopt such a policy, because ______.

A. early treatment of high cholesterol dose not entirely eliminate the possibility of a stroke later in life
B. the mass media regularly feature stories encouraging people to maintain diets that are low in cholesterol
C. RenCo has significantly more employees than Garnet has
D. RenCoâ€™s employees are unlikely to have higher cholesterol levels than Garnetâ€™s employees
E. the average length of time an employee stays with RenCo is less than it is with Garnet

E is best, since it provides information about why RenCo doesn't adopt such a policy. Why should they bother themselves if no one stays long enough to need expensive treatment.

the OA is E...Thanks for the explanation. I dont know what I got it wrong. But when I first thought it was E as well, but then I remembered how the CR tips says not to think too much.

If that's the case, when do you know to think more than you should?

E is best. As allabout points out, it shows that RenCo has no incentive to do what Garnet does.

Yup, E it is.

If the employees don't stay as long, RenCo wouldn't have to deal with the expensive treatments of untreated high cholesterol.

Immediately gravitated to (E). It is the long term feasibility that Renco is most interested in.
