Talent agent

by rahulg83 » Thu Feb 19, 2009 6:48 pm
A talent agent analyzed her company's records in an attempt to determine why they are placing so few actors in roles. She attributed the company's poor performance to the fact that often the actors sent to an audition were completely inappropriate for the role.

It can be concluded that from the passage above that the agent believes that:

A) certain actore are inappropriate for certain roles
B) the actors her company represents are not very good
C) it is difficult to predict how appropriate an actor will be for a role
D) her company does not send enough actors to audition for major roles
E) directors often cast actors who are inappropriate for the role

Its a must be true question. So, the argument is true. Any answer choice which is outside the argument is wrong.
A - IMO
B - Outside the arg
C - Weaken
D - Outside the arg
E - Outside the arg.

The agent is able to distinguish between appropriate and inappropiate actors for certain role.

The statement that logically follows this would be option A.

OA please?
