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.
(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal.
(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists.
(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them.

C is the answer and wins over D

For two reasons: in D some means almost all but we know that ALL those who keep journals and bla bla bla.....yet we have in D are not true that is the contrary of our situation. we care about who write journals NOT the otherr flip of the coin.

C till the end.

Kudo if you want

All those who keep a journal will be heard by the next generation.

"C" makes sense here, because it can be naturally derived based on the premise and the conclusion.

For "D", the assumption will have to be made to include other groups.

For "Must Be True" questions, the stimulus cannot be considered as having a faulty argument, and hence no assumptions can be made while arriving at the OA.

Correct answer is C. Key words to look out for is 'SOME' in the conclusion and 'WILL' in answer C.

The OA is C.

It is not necessary the next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists. It could be the next generation will hear only insufferable egotists and others humorous observers of common place.

D is not an option because it is out of scope - we don't know anything about the other categories.

I hope that makes more sense.

IMO D

Some of the journal writers NEED NOT belong to any of the categories mentioned in the argument

In choice C, it generally says egotists and artists will be heard by the next generation. We don't know whether
these egotists and artists are also journal writers

I'll go with C
Clearly if you choose D, you must assume that there are other people who keep journey but are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists. While infact, maybe all of people who keep journey belong to one of three kind above.

Dear Moderator PTK,

Anyway, all in jest, but the answer is C, not D.

Cheers,

The option does not say that next generation will hear from ALL insufferable egotists and true artists. You seem to have assumed that to be the case. If you think without that assumption, then C shines!

PTK wrote:
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists. yes! bingo. Remember the statement "Among those who keep journals are: true artists, humorous observers and nsufferable egotists." of course there are other people who keep journals.

Here, you've assumed that the there are others besides the artists, observers and egotists. Again, there is no implication or inference from the premise to support this. So, this is a trap!

.. Just my 2 cents!

****************************************************

The premise mentions that some of the journal writers are X, others are Y, and still others are Z. It doesn't say some are X, others are Y, and the REST are Z. Since it is not stated that X + Y + Z = 100%, it is not an assumption that there is a variable W which is distinct from X, Y & Z; it is a fact. So option D seems to be correct.

Hmm, but of the given options which is the one in which you do not have to assume anything.

C it is, as it is clearly stated.

I disagree with C. Why 'will' the new generation learn abt egotists 'and' artists...what if they will earn either or neither. IMO A fits the bill

Hi,

The first thing to note is it is a must be true question. So you can't bring what ifs into the picture, it has to be true. Now as per the argument see the bold portion below. It clearly states that all of them "will" be heard. It is something the argument states and we are not assuming anything. So c has to be true. Hope it is clear.

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.
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.
(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal.
(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists.
(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them.
