According to the company spokesperson, the majority of the wrongful termination lawsuits filed against the company were -------, representing bogus claims made by ------- former employees hoping to strike it rich.

Answer Choices

Answer

Choice (B) is correct. For the company spokesman to describe the lawsuits as “bogus claims” implies that the company views these lawsuits as “frivolous,” or as having no sound basis. Moreover, as is indicated by the phrase “hoping to strike it rich,” the spokesman would likely want to characterize the claimants of these suits as “greedy,” or motivated by a selfish desire for wealth, rather than as people seeking fairness or justice.
