We want to know why Renco isn't going to adopt the same policy for its employees.

A: Not a good reason and irrelevant. May not entirely remove the risk, but enough to be safe.
B: This is a slight possibility, but it appears out-of scope. Leave it, but put a very weak emphasis on this choice.
C: This should give RENCO more of an insentive to adopt the plan.
D: Maybe true, but they could have equal level of cholesterol. Thus, Renco SHOULD adopt the plan in this case. This choice has insufficient information.

E: Best choice and it definitely trumps our very weak B. If Renco has a high employee turnover, then what would be its incentive to pay for this plan?

Between D and E. I will pick D. .
high cholestrol left untreated for MANY years leads to high expenses.

Reason I am reluctant about E is that even though avg lenght@RenCo < avg length@Gartner, avgLength@RenCO could still be many years.

I will pick D.

Choice E- Since an avg time an employee that stays with Renco is shorter than Garnet- there is no reason for Renco to invest in their employees treatment of high cholesterol.
