The 2nd conclusion is:

The general manager would terminate HIS services the next day.

If General manager is the corporate general manager, I think that "HIS" in the above sentence refers to himself and not the other manager who was asked to resign.

So in my opinion, A is the correct option.

If the second conclusion would have been "The next day, the remaining manager might also resign", then option C would have been correct.

But since it is not sure that the remaining manager would definitely resign the next day.
Therefore, the answer should be B.

Doesn't the answer should be D. Because they can be terminated after the next day at any time. And the remaining manager could resign at same evening too.
