Eliminating (E)

Hi team, I understand why (A) is correct, but it would be helpful to have some clarification on why (E) is incorrect? This was my initial choice. Thanks in advance.

@mf93,

Happy to help. Let's take a look at (E).

(E) says, "The people directly involved in implementing policies are
always able to make innovative and realistic policy decisions."

The stimulus tells us that the people responsible for decision making
are directly involved in implementing the policies they design and
that divisions functioning autonomously always permits more realistic
planning and strongly encourages innovation. However, do we have
support that the people directly involved in implementing policies are
ALWAYS able to make innovative and realistic policy decision? No, we
don't. While it looks like more realistic planning is always permitted
and innovation is encouraged, this doesn't guarantee that the people
directly involved in implementing the policies are always able to make
innovative and realistic policy decisions. Additionally, more
realistic planning doesn't tell us if the threshold for 'realistic'
has even been met. It just means that it's closer to realistic, but we
don't know if the policy decisions are realistic or not. In short,
this answer choice is simply too strong for us to conclude. Thus, (E)
is out.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions!
