Either Perry's faction or Tucker's faction, but not both, will win control of the government. If Perry's faction wins, the nation will suffer economically. If Tucker's faction wins, the nation will suffer militarily.
Given the statements in the passage, which one of the following statements must be true?
(A) It is possible, but not certain, that the nation will neither suffer economically nor suffer militarily.
(B) If the nation suffers economically, it is certain that Perry┬б┬пs faction has won control of the government.
(C) It is certain that the nation will suffer either economically or militarily, and also certain that it will not suffer both.
(D) If the nation suffers militarily, it is possible, but not certain, that Tucker┬б┬пs faction has won control of the government.
(E) If the nation suffers both economically and militarily, it is certain that neither Perry┬б┬пs faction nor Tucker┬б┬пs has won control of the government.
Why is E wrong ? Is it because of the strongness of the statement ?
The stimulus gives information what WILL happen when either Perry's or Tucker's faction wins control of the govt.
But does not give information about what ELSE MAY happen when either of them win control of the govt.
Thus, we cannot say for sure that option E is true.
Choice A - Since Either PF or TF is going to occur the set of reasons falls
with in set of SUFFERING.
So A is Not true
Choice B - ECONOMIC suffering is a superset compared to set PF.
So the set of reasons could fall outside PF and still be with in set ECONOMIC suffering
So B is Not true
Choice C - A set of reasons could lead to either Economic suffering or Military suffering or both
So C is Not true
Choice D - If the set of reasons lead to MILITARY suffering, it could very well be outside
the set TF. This is definitely true.
So D is true
Choice E - Set reasons could lead to both ecenomic and military suffering and enclose either of them
So E is not true
