Generation Xers are those people born roughly between 1965 and 1981. As employees, Generation Xers tend to be more challenged when they can carry out tasks independently. This makes Generation Xers the most entrepreneurial generation in history.
This paragraph best supports the statement that Generation Xers
work harder than people from other generations.
have a tendency to be self-directed workers
have an interest in making history
tend to work in jobs that require risk-taking behavior.
like to challenge their bosses work attitudes.
Explanation:
The support for choice b is given in the second sentence of the paragraph. Generation Xers like to work independently, which means they are self-directed. No support is given for either choice a or choice c. Choice d is not related to the paragraph. Although the paragraph mentions that Generation Xers like to be challenged, it does not say they like to challenge their bosses attitudes; therefore, choice e can be ruled out.

More challenged when they can carry out tasks independently - it means to have a hard time working as an independent person.
