Capital Mignon, the five-star bistro situated in the periphery of James Town, yet renowned as the highest-class restaurant in the entire district, has published the following promotion:

"Economic times are hard, and people's spirits are generally low. We guarantee you, however, a culinary experience that will make you forget your woes and walk out with a smile. Having surveyed every one of our customers who dined on our filet mignon this past week, we ascertained that each and every one of them walked out happier than they had been when they walked in. Their mood must have resulted from that sweet and juicy filet that only Capity Mignon knows how to make."

Which of the following can be inferred from Capital Mignon's promotion?

A. Meat always has a positive effect on people's emotional state.

B. The state of the economy affects the happiness of any person in James Town.

C. The Capital Filet customers who were surveyed are not vegetarians.

D. Foods rich in animal protein and carbohydrates are a reliable alternative to prescription anti-depressants.

E. Most residents of James Town know that Capital Filet is far superior to other local dining options, despite the over-pricing of some of its more obscure dishes.

Good job guys....

A. This is outside of the scope, since the only people mentioned in the promotion are those who ate the filet mignon at Capital Mignon.

B. This is outside of the scope, since the only people mentioned in the promotion are those who ate the filet mignon at the Capital Mignon.

C. Correct: The people surveyed ate filet mignon and then felt happier. Thus, it can safely be inferred that these people are not vegetarians.

D. This is outside of the scope as no mention was made of a medical assessment of protein and carbohydrates.

E. What James Town residents know cannot be inferred from how one group of steak eaters felt.

Hello Economist,
With due respect, filet is an english word that means - a boneless cut or slice of meat or fish, esp. the beef tenderloin.
filet mignon means - a small, tender round of steak cut from the thick end of a beef tenderloin.

"MOST" means what??? 40%, 50%, 90% I don't know. It cannot be 100% for sure.

On the other hand ----> Inference is 100% true.

sounded more like an assumption question - they must have been NOT have been vegetarians to have eaten filet. In fact on first reading this choice sounded too obvious ...
