This is a googly. I go with D.

Went one answer choice after the other and mapped them with the stimulus.

A - No one but senators spoke at the convention. If a senator spoke he should have been a democrat, if he is a democrat senator he could not have spoken.

B - No Democrat spoke at the convention. What if a democrat who is not a senator?

C - Only Democrats spoke at the convention. Democrats dd not speak as per part 2 of the stimulus

D - No senator spoke at the convention. If a senator spoke - he should have been democrat. But no democrats spoke who was a senator. So right.
E - Some democrats senators spoke. Nope. No democrat senator spoke.

Usually Venkusne is quite good at CR but I will justn answer naturally (whereas in the test place I would have copied his answer :lol: )

C for me

Nothing is said that there are just senators in the the convention... is it acceptable or everybody should assume that ? There could some group of Democrats that are not Senators...
:roll:
