Went for D.

Stem:
1.All P=F
2.No P=V
3.Only V=C
Try to draw the above as Vien diagrams and you will see that D follows.

It should be C. We know that there are no acrylic monochrome paintings in the gallery, because only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes, and there are no Vorticists in the gallery. If all the paintings in the gallery are French, and none of them are acrylic monochromes, it must be that some French painters don't use acrylic monochromes.

Thanks Ian for explaining - I have misdrawn my diagrams and I agree the answer should be C.
After a busy day at work I didn't pay attention in the logic. Assuming one can draw his diagrams correctly, it is a mechanical question. But drawing is sometimes error prone. How would you solve such questions?

We are inclined to D because we think Vorticists and French are mutual exclusive. In fact some painter who are Vorticists can be French people. Even though I do not know who Vorticists are but they are definitely not a nationality name

The best way to solve this questions is to eliminate answers with EXTREME words.
In case inference questions in GMAT (infer, must be also true, support), NO EXTREME words should be in a right answer.
Fortunately, all answers except C have extreme words
A) NO - extreme
B) ALL - extreme
C) Some -it's ok
D) NO -extreme
E) ALL -extreme

I just scanned through the answers and even didn't read them as all exteme words are in the begining here. Straight to C.

Answer is C.
There are no acrylic monochrome paintings in the gallery and only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes. Hence, there are no painitngs by Vorticists in the gallery. All the paintings in the gallery are by French, and not made by using acrylic monochromes.
Conclusion: Some French painters don't use acrylic monochromes.

Amazing !! :shock:

Nobody's looking at the word 'ONLY' .. Its straight away mentioned that 'Only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.'

And hence .. Neither french painters .. nor italian painters .. nor english painters .. rather nobody in this world uses acrylic monochrome , only the vorticists use it !!

And hence the answer is (D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works. !

I think you've misunderstood. 'French' is a nationality. 'Vorticism' is a style of painting. You can be French and also be a Vorticist.

This CR looked easy to me. Looked at the answer choices and went for C as the answer.

Believe the key would be to eliminate the extreme choices and look for boundary/exceptional cases that might break some of the answer choices.
