Employees who understand how their roles fit into the "big picture" of a business or organization are more motivated to do their jobs well. Corporate leaders wishing to improve workers morale should thus consider the "participatory" style of management, in which workers are given an individual piece of a project to carry out, replete with its own explicit goals and responsibilities.

Which of the following illuminates an assumption underlying the statements above?

A) Workers with responsibilities are more motivated than those without.
B) Few employees are inclined to participate in any phase of a project without being granted express rights and responsibilities.
C) Managers using less interactive leadership methods are not as effective as those who do use such methods.
D) Having responsibility for a segment of an enterprise helps employees grasp where they fit within an organizational structure.
E) Corporate managers should involve subordinates in all levels of decision making.

Option A :- Incorrect
This option is incorrect because the argument does not provide any information to compare between workers with responsibilities and workers without responsibilities.

Option B :- Incorrect
This option proves otherwise, if only few employees support the initiative then it weakens the argument.

Option C :- Incorrect
This option is not in connection to the real statement. No relevant information is given about managers or interactive leadership methods.

Option D :- correct
This correctly establish a link between the two statements and illuminates the assumptions.

Option E :- Incorrect
