A work of architecture, if it is to be both inviting and functional for public use, must be unobtrusive, taking second place to the total environment. Modern architects, plagued by egoism, have violated this precept. They have let their strong personalities take over their work, producing buildings that are not functional for public use.
Which one of the statements below follows logically from the statements in the passage?
(A) Unobtrusive architecture is both inviting and functional.
(B) Modern architects who let their strong personalities take over their work produce buildings that are not unobtrusive.
(C) An architect with a strong personality cannot produce buildings that functional well for the public.
(D) A work of architecture that takes second place to the environment functions well for public use.
(E) A work of architecture cannot simultaneously express its architectâ€™s personality and be functional for public use.
Again I use the If X, then Y and If not Y, then not X logic here!
X - If inviting and functional for public use
Y - Unobtrusive and takes second place
A is wrong as it implies If Y, then X which is wrong as per the rules of syllogism
B is right as it implies If not Y, then not X!
C is wrong as it is very categorical and we cannot make such a conclusion based on the passage
D is wrong as agian it implies, If Y, then X and thats wrong
E is wrong as we are not sure about this. The passage does not say anything about statement E! _________________
