GMAT Recruiting – Question of the Day

QOD2015_0731
Explanation
A - Incorrect: The phrase does what it is to be doing is unidiomatic and wordy.

C - Incorrect: Whether changes the meaning of the sentence. The conditional If in the original sentence sets up a required condition: If the agency does its job, then everyone benefits. Replacing If with Whether, as in "whether or not," implies that everyone benefits whether the agency does its job or not. Also, does as is missing a noun: exactly what does it do as it is supposed to?

D - Incorrect: In addition to being unidiomatic, wordy, and awkward, this answer choice doesn’t fit into the If… then structure. Also, the intended meaning of the sentence is concerned about the proper action of the recruitment agency, but in this choice it is unclear who or what is doing the action.

E - Incorrect: Whether or not changes the meaning of the sentence. The conditional If in the original sentence sets up a required condition: If the agency does its job, then everyone benefits. Replacing If with Whether or not means that everyone benefits whether the agency does its job or does not do its job.

B - Correct: This answer choice addresses the correct doer of the action, the recruitment agency in a logical If… then construction.

B is the correct answer.
