The third sentence in the explanation, "An adverse impact (C) is any negative result of a change to any of the terms and conditions of employment." should read:
"The EEOC defines adverse impact (C) as a substantially different rate of selection in hiring, promotion, or other employment decision which works to the disadvantage of members of a race, sex, or ethnic group.”
B. is still the correct answer
