The statements above, if true, best support which of the following conclusions?
A: Every graduate of TopNotch High School with an IQ of 150 has been accepted to at least one Ivy-League school.
B: If a person is a high-school graduate and has an IQ of less than 100, he or she could not have been a student at
TopNotch High School.
C: If a person has an IQ of 130 and is attending an Ivy-League school, it is possible for him or her to have graduated from
TopNotch High School.
D: At least one graduate from TopNotch high school who has applied to at least one Ivy-League university has been
accepted to one of them.
E: If a high-school graduate has an IQ of 150 and is not attending an Ivy-League school, then he or she did not apply to
one of them.
I get C. All topNotch High School grads have an IQ over 120. So its possible one of them scored a 130 and was one of the 'most students with IQ' over 120 who are accepted to an Ivy College.
Possible indicates its a particular statment that is easier to prove on inference questions.
A. Some students with IQ of 150 may not have even applied.
B. A student with an IQ of 100 could have attended but not graduated.
D. Most with IQ of 120 get accepted but some do not.
E. A student could apply and still not go.
