Question Stats:

88% (00:59) correct 11% (01:36) wrong based on 18 sessions
Politician:Each year, small businesses create more jobs than do large established businesses. Therefore, in order to reduce unemployment in the long term, we should provide incentives for starting small businesses rather than for expanding established large businesses.

Which of the following, if true, casts the most doubt on the politician's argument ?

(A) In general, people employed by small businesses report higher job satisfaction than do people employed by large businesses.
(B) Among the currently unemployed are many people with sufficient job skills to perform the jobs that small businesses would create.
(C) Providing an effective incentive for starting a business generally costs significantly less than providing an effective incentive for expanding a large business.
(D) A high proportion of small businesses fail within three years of starting because of their owners' inexperience.
(E) The average large business contributes more money  to  politicians’  campaign  funds  than  the   average small business does.

Here the claim says that because small businesses employ more than big businesses, it is necessary to provide more incentives for them because they resorb the unemployment.
We have to look for an argument that undermine this statement.


(A) In general, people employed by small businesses report higher job satisfaction than do people employed by large businesses.
This strenghens our statement
(B) Among the currently unemployed are many people with sufficient job skills to perform the jobs that small businesses would create.
This one strenghens too.
(C) Providing an effective incentive for starting a business generally costs significantly less than providing an effective incentive for expanding a large business.
This strenghens the statement.
(D) A high proportion of small businesses fail within three years of starting because of their owners' inexperience.
(E) The average large business contributes more money to politicians’ campaign funds than the average small business does.
This statement strenghens.

So answer D.

Because B talks about job skills. We care about creating new jobs

Hence D.

the answer is D because it provides an explanation why it is not a good idea to provide incentives to small businesses. Other answer choices either strengthen or off the mark
