Amy McConnell is considering running for election against the incumbent, Gregory Lutz. If Lutz has a large campaign fund, then he is already far ahead, and McConnell will not run against him. If Lutz does not have a large campaign fund, McConnell will scrutinize Lutz’s record for any hints of scandal that she could use against him. Anything of a scandalous nature would increase McConnell’s chances of winning, and she would campaign for election. If Lutz has a clean record, however, McConnell will not run against him.
Given the information in the passage, which one of the following must be false?
(A) Lutz does not have a large campaign fund, and McConnell does not run against him.
(B) Lutz’s record contains items that would increase McConnell’s chances of winning, and she runs against him.
(C) Lutz’s record contains scandalous items, and McConnell does not run against him.
(D) Lutz’s record contains nothing that would increase McConnell’s chances of winning, and she runs against him.
(E) Lutz has a large campaign fund, and McConnell does not run against him.

I guess it is (C).

(A): could be true if L has clean record.
(B): true
(D): it does not say wether L has clean record. So, could be true
(E): true

I like D - A can be true if Lutz has a clean record. B can be true if Lutz doesn't have a large campaign fund and has something bad on his record. C can be true if Lutz has a large campaign fund already established. E can be true because the passage states that if Lutz has a large campaign fund then McDonnell won't run against him. D is always false.

I agree with you, Chet! D it is.
C can be true if Lutz already has a large campaign fund. McConnell will not even look at his records in that case.

its clearly D.
C cannot be the answer 'coz even though L has some weak points, there is a chance that L could also have a strong campaign funding.
Hence, in such a case, M would not contest against him.

I agree, it is clearly D.

C can be true because if Lutz has large campaign fund, then even though Lutz’s record contains scandalous items, McConnell will not run against him.
