1. E. E clearer and more powerful than D
2. C. IMO A, B, D express the behavior IF drive follow the ad. They have the same chance to be correct.
C sound better becasue "POSSIBLE"....

The OP says the answer to #2 is E. I don't understand why...E is a false statement. If the driver reads the sign and doesn't honk, it means he DOES use the product.

I think this is a misprint. The answer would be E if the question said: which one of these statements CANNOT be concluded.
Anyone agree?

Bumping this one up because I felt this is an excellent question ... Q1 of above

This is one of the few questions where I found that the argument/passage is asking itself to be inferred from one of the answers.

OA is E.

I used diagrams to solve this. Initially i was also stuck b/w D and E but when I realized my goofup( passage getting inferred from answer) I was convinced with E.

All A is B can be represented by two concentric circles A and B. A is the inner circle.

Once drawn you can use the diagram to solve the question.
