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.

Should be C.

If a person has an IQ of 130 and is attending an Ivy-League school, it is possiblefor him or her to have graduated from
TopNotch High School.


E is a shell-game answer:
All students, doesn't matter graduated from which school, with IQ 150+, who applied to a any Ivy League universities will be accepted. But there is a possibility that one student with IQ 150+ applied to a Ivy League universities, was accepted but did NOT join because he wanted to do MBA and started to prepare for GMAT at home :)
