    What do you think?

    Why would you deemphasize negatives in that situation (b)? Don't you think a customer needs to know what is wrong with his/her credit in order to work on improving it?

    Well I believe d sounds more correct,

    Let me expound on one: YOu are hiding negative news or information so you don't appear dishonest?

    This sounds like CAR101 for used car salesmen.

    I agree, Bob. I'm bothered by the suspicion of unethical shenanigans in d.

    I think b. is the best answer. Although the customer should be told why is application for credit is refused, it should be done in such a way that negative angle is deemphasized.
