A highly cohesive work group is a prerequisite for high team performance. Sociologists point out that the association between success and group cohesion owes to the support individual team members give to one another and their acceptance of the group's activities and goals.
Each of the following, if true, either supports or cannot weaken the sociologists' assumption about the relationship between success and cohesion EXCEPT

A.A group of Japanese researchers found that the successful work teams were led by dominant leaders
B.University researchers found that there was a significant correlation between team productivity and the extent to which team members understood and complied with the group's objectives
C.American researchers found that successful team members tended to rate their fellow members more favourably
D.Industrial Psychologists of UK found that work groups who tended to participate in after-hours social activities were more productive
Answer and Feedback
Answer:A
Feedback:The first option states that a group of Japanese researchers found that successful work teams were led by dominant leaders. Thus it weakens the main question, which points out that that work cohesiveness is a prerequisite for high team performance.
