Hi, can anyone please help me solve this question:

Every painting hanging in the Hoular Gallery is by a French painter. No painting in the Hoular Gallery is by a Vorticist. Only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.
If the information above is true, which of the following must also be true?
(A) No French painters are Vorticists.
(B) All Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(C) Some French painters do not use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(E) All French painters who use acrylics use acrylic monochromes in their works.


I dont know how to rate difficulty level of this one. What do you think ?

Thanks..

I marked D first.

But i think right answer is C.

Reason: we cannot tell about all french painters but yes only those that has painting in the Hoular Gallery.so Some French painters do not use acrylic monochromes in their works.

Pls correct me if I am wrong

I thought on these lines..

every painting by French
no painting by V
ie French not eq V
only V uses acm
ie F does not use acm
ie No F uses acm
Hence D.

If the information above is true, which of the following must also be true?
(A) No French painters are Vorticists. may be true, we only know abt french painter who worked at hoular gallery
(B) All Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.again a may be true. we only know that only vorticists used acrylic monochorme, but we do not know if everyone of them used it.
(C) Some French painters do not use acrylic monochromes in their works.only vorticist used acrylic monochorme and they did nit have a painting in hoular. Hoular was painted by french painter. hence those french painter didn't used acrylic monochrome. correct answer
(D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works. we do not if vorticist were frech painters or not. so this may or may not be true
(E) All French painters who use acrylics use acrylic monochromes in their works.again we do not know all french painter.

Could someone clarify whether we can say "Some French painters do not use acrylic" if in reality NON of the French painters use acrylic.
i.e. does "some do not use" means that in the same time "some DO use"
hope it's clear what I want to ask-)
