All those who keep a journal will be heard by the next generation. Some of these journal writers are true artists, others humorous observers of the commonplace, and still others insufferable egotists who feel compelled to record their every thought.

in other words:
All those who keep a journal (true artists, humorous observers, insufferable egotists) will be heard by the next generation. The next generation will may heard other people.

If the statements above are true, which one of the following must be true?

(A) Not all of those who are humorous observers of the commonplace will be heard by the next generation.- may not be true.
(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal. - may not be true.
(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.- must be true. If we deny this statement, the argument is totally destroyed.
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists. - may not be true
(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them. - may not be true

A: could be false, what if all the humorous observers kept journals? unlikely, but not impossible.
B: maybe maybe not other methods aren't discussed
D: maybe, but this doesnt HAVE to be true.
E: this again could be true or not however extreme it maybe, its still possible that all true artists.

C: this has to be true b/c some today are insufferable egotists and true artists and some of these wrote journals.

I disagree with OA.

(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists

So this is the OA.

What if no one keeps journals?? Then the next generation wont hear from insufferable egotists and true artists

I doubt this is an OG question because this question is not airtight.

I went with D.

(A) Not all of those who are humorous observers of the commonplace will be heard by the next generation.... CAN'T SAY
(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal.....REVERSE RELATIONSHIP MAY NOT BE TRUE...
(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.......TRUE AS PER THE STATEMENT
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists.... CAN'T SAY THAT
(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them.....OUT OF SCOPE
