It is clear that none of the volleyball players at yesterday’s office beach party came to work today since everyone who played volleyball at that party got badly sunburned and no one at work today is even slightly sunburned.
Which one of the following exhibits a pattern of reasoning that most closely parallels that in the argument above?
(A) Since everyone employed by TRF who was given the opportunity to purchase dental insurance did so and everyone who purchased dental insurance saw a dentist, it is clear that no one who failed to see a dentist is employed by TRF.
(B) Since no one who was promoted during the past year failed to attend the awards banquet, evidently none of the office managers attended the banquet this year since they were all denied promotion.
(C) Since the Donnely report was not finished on time, no one in John’s group could have been assigned to contribute to that report since everyone in John’s group has a reputation for getting assignments in on time.
(D) Everyone with an office on the second floor works directly for the president and, as a result, no one with a second floor office will take a July vacation because no one who works for the president will be able to take time off during July.
(E) Since all of the people who are now on the MXM Corporation payroll have been employed in the same job for the past five years, it is clear that no one who frequently changes jobs is likely to be hired by MXM.

Let's see.

W = voleyball players at y's office beach party
X = come to work
Y = sunburned
Z = those at work today

None of W did X since all W are Y and no Z is Y.

D and E are discarded immediately. C is not strong either.

I'd say it's A.

How about this logic?

Attended party = Played volley ball
promoted = sun burns

Because everbody who was promoted attended party, and everybody who got sun burns played volley ball.

none in banquet = none in office

no promotions = no sun burns

B appeals to me :wink:

(A) Since everyone employed by TRF who was given the opportunity to purchase dental insurance did so and everyone who purchased dental insurance saw a dentist, it is clear that no one who failed to see a dentist is employed by TRF.
All the TRF employees who were given the opportunity to purchase insurance bought the insurance and went to the dentist. But there were TRF employees who were not given the opportunity, so some TRF employees could have failed tgo see the dentist.
(B) Since no one who was promoted during the past year failed to attend the awards banquet, evidently none of the office managers attended the banquet this year since they were all denied promotion.
All the people who were promoted attended the banquet. Does not mean that those who were not promoted did not attend the banquet.
The logic would hold true if it had said: Those who did not attend the banquet were not promoted

(C) Since the Donnely report was not finished on time, no one in John’s group could have been assigned to contribute to that report since everyone in John’s group has a reputation for getting assignments in on time.
John's group has the reputation but there is no guarantee that the group will always do every assignment on time
(D) Everyone with an office on the second floor works directly for the president and, as a result, no one with a second floor office will take a July vacation because no one who works for the president will be able to take time off during July.
You can not be on the second floor, if you don't work for the president. Anyone who works for president canot take vacation. Everyoneon second floor works for the president. So, no one on second floor can take vacation.
(E) Since all of the people who are now on the MXM Corporation payroll have been employed in the same job for the past five years, it is clear that no one who frequently changes jobs is likely to be hired by MXM.
