Essayist: Wisdom and intelligence are desirable qualities. However, being intelligent does not imply that one is wise, nor does being wise imply that one is intelligent. In my own experience, the people I meet have one or the other of these qualities but not both.
If the essayist’s statements are true, them each of the following could be true EXCEPT:
(A) Most people are neither intelligent, nor wise.
(B) Most people are both intelligent and wise.
(C) No one is both wise and intelligent.
(D) No one is either wise or intelligent.
(E) Many people are intelligent and yet lack wisdom.

(B) Most people are both intelligent and wise.

Given :
1. I does not imply W
2. W does not imply I
3. People essayist mets are either I or W not both.

Essayist knows only a few people of the world ..(I hope).

Few people are I or W

Negating:

Most people are ~I and ~W i.e. neither Intelligent nor wise.

Only B is not possible as it is the opposite of this inference.

Answer: B

hmm..
B reads: Most people are both intelligent and wise. According to the author this is not true
D: No one is either wise or intelligent. If this translates to everyone is neither wise nor intelligent.. then that is not true

I would go with D

Thats the point... we don't want it to be true.

If the essayist’s statements are true, them each of the following could be true EXCEPT:

Now I am confused :? :? :?

What I meant to say was that .. there are two things that are not true.. which makes it more confusing and the reason I chose D over B is because D is more extreme that B though D could be considered out of scope :evil:

Not on exam day I hope :lol

D.

Question is which of the statements CANNOT be true.


I was confused between B and D and I pick D because, B can only be inferred from Essayist's experience, its not his statement.

D cannot be true because essayist explicitly says the otherway.

If you go by what the essayist says, then B has to be the correct answer.

I'm going with D

When the question refers to the essayist's statement, it is referring to every sentence, every word that is written in the stimulus. What the essayist says about his experience is ALSO his statement.
