1. If "0" people who became sick did not get vaccinated, then 100 people who became sick got vaccinated or in other words, All people who became sick got vaccinated. (note: everyone either gets vaccinated or does not get vaccinated)

2. If 99 people who became sick did not get vaccinated, then 1 person who became sick got vaccinated.

Summarizing the above, Not everyone who became sick did not get vaccinated is equivalent to "1-99 people who became sick got vaccinated.". Isn't this the same as choice A.

please see from the logic 1-100 people who became sick got vaccinated which is not same as 1-99 people who became sick got

for quick checks, i follow that while negating either subject or verb can be negated. that means ONLY 1 of them MUST be negate

ex 5
100 - tell hence negation is (0-99) tell =>(100 -{ 0-99} ) not tell = (1-100) not tell ie some will not tell
(a) 100 not tell
(b) 1-100 not tell
(c) 0 tell => 100-0 not tell = 100 not tell
(d) 51-100 not tell
thus b

Ex6
100 Ps not vaccinated (V) thus negation is (0-99) NV => (100-{0-99}) = 1-100 V that is Some sick P got vaccinated(V)
(a) Not everyone = (0-99) V or 1-100 NV
(b) Some = (1-100) NV
(c) Atleast one= (1-100) NV
(d) e f are about ppl who did not got sick so can withdraw any conclusion on P sick thus ofs!!
i am also not able to find any answer, can you please shed some light

Quick question about the first example from the article:

Quote:
Every super-smart GMAT aspirant registers on GMATClub. Hence, every Harvard admit is a registered student at GMATClub.
Assumption: Harvard only admits super-smart GMAT aspirants.

I might be overthinking here, so please correct me if I am out of scope. Although every super-smart GMAT aspirant registers on GMATClub, you don't have to be a super-smart GMAT aspirant to register on GMATClub. Therefore, does the assumption here stand? Although every Harvard admin is a registered student at GMATClub, does it only have to be a super-smart GMAT aspirant member that makes it? Indeed the following assumption does not seem to shatter the conclusion above if we take the above into consideration:

Harvard does not only admit super-smart GMAT aspirants.

Thanks.
