    B) He could not correct the software problem in the screening test and was not selected for the position.

    Explanation:

    Procedural fairness in a job selection process refers not to the outcome of the process, instead it refers to the procedures used by the people conducting the process. In order for Roberto to belief that the procedural process was fair, he must belief that the outcome of the process was fair.

    Since we assume that Roberto is a rational person, if he wasn't able to perform the required tasks or tests given to him, he should agree that he wasn't fit for the job. Or maybe he was fit but got too nervous and just messed up.
