Its C and a very clean one - look out for the "jobs per company" phrase and number of jobs mentioned at the end.

I could not get why is A wrong??
Can someone help..!!!

1. Use "Assumption Negation" Technique
2. Negate the answers and the right answer will weaken the Conclusion
Conclusion - Derderia will not break its record for new jobs created unless a record number of companies start up this year
Negate A - In a given year, new companies starting up create less jobs on average than do previously established companies - doesnot weaken the conclusion
Negate B - Out of scope - no affect on conclusion
Negate C - The new companies starting up will provide substantially more jobs per company than did new companies last year. So without record no. of companies, the new companies can have many jobs (No. of jobs = New companies * Jobs-per-company). If jobs-per-company is very high, than without record no. of companies, Derderia will break its record for new jobs. This weakens the conclusion and hence is right answer
Negate D - Out of scope - no affect on conclusion
Negate E - The no. of jobs created last year was less than the no. of jobs lost - No affect on the conclusion

I will explain why A is not the answer. One of the reasons for rejecting A is - use of "average" to account for high "number" (the entire conclusion is about record number), is untenable.
High Average jobs may not best explain (divisor of this ratio n may vary) why the n "number" of start ups may be high this year.

One can see that choice C prevents any one company from contributing heavily to this "record" number, thereby increasing the possibility that the number of start ups will increase substantially this year.


Q With a record number of new companies starting up in Derderia, and with previously
established companies adding many new jobs, a record number of new jobs were created
last year in the Derderian economy. This year, previously established companies will not
be adding as many new jobs overall as such companies added last year. Therefore, unless
a record number of companies start up this year, Derderia will not break its record for
new jobs created.
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?

A. In a given year, new companies starting up create more new jobs on average than
do previously established companies.

C is correct.

A. In a given year, new companies starting up create more new jobs on average than
do previously established companies. --> we're concluding the opposite here - eliminated
B. The number of people seeking employment is no larger this year than it was last
year. - we don't care about people looking for jobs. We're more concerned with # of jobs - eliminated
C. This year, the new companies starting up will not provide substantially more jobs
per company than did new companies last year. - CORRECT
D. Previously established companies in Derderia will be less profitable this year than
such companies were last year. - doesn't say anything about new companies - eliminated
E. The number of jobs created in the Derderian economy last year was substantially
larger than the number of jobs lost. - outside bounds of argument - eliminated

Please help me here to rule out B. Have checked multiple replies from multiple posts on this. Just, could not get convinced.

With a record number of new companies starting up in Derderia and with previously established companies adding many jobs, a record number of new jobs were created last year in the Derderian economy. This year, previously established companies will not be adding as many new jobs overall as such companies added last year. Therefore, unless a record number of companies start up this year, Derderia will not break its record for the new jobs created.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?
A. Each year, new companies starting up create more new jobs overall than do previously established companies.
B. Companies established last year will not add a greater number of jobs overall this year than they did last year.
C. This year, the new companies starting up will not provide substantially more jobs per company than did new companies last year.
D. This year, the overall number of jobs created by previously established companies will be less than the overall number of jobs lost at those companies.
E. The number of jobs created in the Derderian economy last year was substantially larger than the number of jobs lost last year.


jobs added last year = jobs from estb company + jobs from new companies last year.
Doesn't the highlighted, clearly say that, estb company isn't adding anymore jobs BUT never said that the new companies added last year aren't adding new jobs this year.

this yr jobs = jobs from (<strike> estb companies </strike>+ last year added new companies + jobs from new companies of this year )

from argument we know 1st component isn't adding.
conclusion says the 3rd component should definitely happen. Doesn't this mean it is assuming that the 2nd component will not contribute much to the sum?

In that case, B should be the answer right?
And C doesn't make sense if we see the argument this way.

Please Clarify.
