Federal law prohibits businesses from reimbursing any employees for the cost of owning and operating a private aircraft that is used for business purposes. Thus, many companies in the United States themselves purchase private aircraft. The vast majority of the business aviation fleet is owned by small and mid-size businesses, and flights are strictly for business purposes, with mostly mid-level employees on board. These companies and their boards of directors are in full compliance with the law and with what is best for their businesses.

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the statements above?

(A) The federal law in question costs businesses money.
(B) Most executives would rather fly on company-owned planes than on commercial airlines.
(C) Large businesses usually have their executives fly first or business class on commercial flights.
(D) Upper-level executives are less often in compliance with the law.
(E) By not receiving any reimbursement for these flights, the mid-level executives on board are complying with the law.

Kudos for R.A.E

Could someone explain why A cannot be an inference?
option (A): The federal law in question costs businesses money.
We know due to the federal law, most businesses had to purchase aircrafts - thus costing businesses money

Why I rejected option E: "By not receiving any reimbursement for these flights, the mid-level executives on board are complying with the law"
From the passage, we know that federal law prohibits businesses to reimburse flight costs, by purchasing these flights, businesses are complying with the laws => not reimbursing the employees.
While its true, employees are not receiving reimbursement, can we infer it is due to this they are complying with the law ? I rejected this option since the passage doesnt talk about employees complying with the law or them receiving reimbursement.
I felt option A was a better choice
