QUESTION TYPE: Paradox
PARADOX: Analysts predict that Morris will own the daily, even though the majority shareholder refuses to sell.
ANALYSIS: The question stem reads like a strengthen question, but this is really a paradox.
Use your common sense for this question. The majority refuses to sell. So Morris can’t buy the shares. Unless the majority is somehow forced to sell. I saw that was the only possibility, and looked for it in the answers.
- Who cares about other newspapers. We only care about the Daily.
- The stimulus said that Azedcorp has refused to sell. Presumably a high price won’t sway them. Also, this offer was in the past, and the stimulus says that Azedcorp refused all offers.
- It doesn’t matter who is buying. Azedcorp has refused to sell.
- That’s great for Morris. But there can only be one majority owner. Currently, Azedcorp has a majority. Morris therefore needs at least some of Azedcorp’s shares to form a majority.
- CORRECT. If Azedcorp is forced to sell its shares, then Morris will be able to buy them.
