Hi @aonyonyi,

Thanks for the question! Let’s take a look at this stimulus. We’re told that outsiders think they can bring in fresh solutions that insiders missed. But if you don’t have experience, it’s futile. Only people who can solve problems understand them, and no one gets that understanding without experience.

This is actually a question we can diagram! The following are the sentences diagrammed in order, from top to bottom, not including the first one:

~Experience —> ~Working solutions
Working solutions —> Understand
~Experience —> ~Understand

Now we’re looking for a statement most strongly supported by this information. (A) says that more experience means more creativity. But that’s certainly not logically compelled by what we have above. For example, at some point, you could hit a ceiling. You see increases in creativity up to five years, but after that point, you hit your max creativity. You still gain experience, but your creativity doesn’t increase commensurately. And so (A) is not always true, whereas (C) always is based on the diagram.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
