## Global Stats

If we reduce the salaries of our employees, then profits will increase by 35 percent. Because we must increase our profits, it is clear that employee salaries must be reduced.

Which of the following most closely parallels the reasoning used in the argument above?

A. If I eat less food, I will lose weight. Since I started skipping breakfast, I have lost ten pounds.

B. If I work four more hours each week, I will earn enough money to afford a new hobby. Because I would like a new hobby, I will collect coins.

C. If God does not exist, then there is no basis for morality. Because some actions are morally wrong, God must exist.

D. If there is an economic recession, then salaries will be reduced. Because salaries are not decreasing, there is not an economic recession.

E. If there were more commercials, the number of television watchers would decline. Be- cause the number of television watchers should be reduced, the number of commercials should be increased.
