Q18: Which of the following most logically completes the argument? Yorco and Zortech are two corporations that employ large numbers of full-time workers who are paid by the hour. Publicly available records indicate that Yorco employs roughly the same number of such hourly wage workers as Zortech does but spends a far higher total sum per year on wages for such workers. Therefore, hourly wages must be higher, on average, at Yorco than at Zortech, since _____. A. Zortech spends a higher total sum per year than Yorco does to provide its hourly wage workers with benefits other than wages B. the work performed by hourly wage workers at Zortech does not require a significantly higher level of skill than the work performed by hourly wage workers at Yorco does C. the proportion of all company employees who are hourly wage workers is significantly greater at Yorco than it is at Zortech D. overtime work, which is paid at a substantially higher rate than work done during the regular work week, is rare at both Yorco and Zortech 10

But farming will not remain viable if the farms are left unmodernized, and most of the farmers lack the financial resources modernization requires. And that is exactly why a more sensible preservation strategy would be to assist the farmers to modernize their farms to the extent needed to maintain viability. In the argument as a whole, the two boldface proportions play which of the following roles? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
