No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term. Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones. So it is untrue that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will be introductory level classes.

The pattern of reasoning displayed in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following arguments?

(A) The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by May and since if a building is occupied by May the new tax rates apply to it, the Morrison Building will be taxed according to the new rates.

(B) The revised tax code does not apply at all to buildings built before 1900, and only the first section of the revised code applies to buildings built between 1900 and 1920, so the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building, since it was built in 1873.

(C) All property on Overton Road will be reassessed for tax purposes by the end of the year and the Elnor Company headquarters is on Overton Road, so Elnorâ€™s property taxes will be higher next year.

(D) New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years and all new buildings in the cityâ€™s Alton district are exempt for five years, so the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.

(E) Since according to recent statute, a building that is exempt from property taxes is charged for city water at a special rate, and hospitals are exempt from property taxes, Founderâ€™s Hospital will be charged for city water at the special rate.

Well i picked A using the logic rules,

If French intro course then not more than one can be taught

If more than one course is taught, then it canâ€™t be both French intro courseâ€¦

From this
If a building is occupied by May, then new tax rate apply to it
If new tax rate does not apply, then the building was not occupied by may and since the Morrison building will be fully occupied by may new tax rates apply, (the logic is kinda similar)

the structure seems to be
I.condition
II. fact somehow related to the condition
III. conclusion that could have been drawn from I

I. New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years
II. all new buildings in the cityâ€™s Alton district are exempt for five years
III. the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.

(D) for me.

No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term. Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones. So it is untrue that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will be introductory level classes.

Conclusion: Both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will NOT be introductory level classes.
Premise 1 (supporting conculsion): No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term.
Premise 2 (supporting conclusion but not related to Premise 1 or in other words additional info): Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones.

The pattern of reasoning displayed in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following arguments?

(A) The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by May and since if a building is occupied by May the new tax rates apply to it, the Morrison Building will be taxed according to the new rates.

Conclusion: the Morrison Building will be taxed according to the new rates.
Premise 1: The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by May and since if a building is occupied by May the new tax rates apply to it
Premise 2: missing.

(B) The revised tax code does not apply at all to buildings built before 1900, and only the first section of the revised code applies to buildings built between 1900 and 1920, so the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building, since it was built in 1873.

Conclusion: the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building, since it was built in 1873.
Premise 1(supporting conclusion): The revised tax code does not apply at all to buildings built before 1900
Premise 2( not related to conclusion):only the first section of the revised code applies to buildings built between 1900 and 1920

(C) All property on Overton Road will be reassessed for tax purposes by the end of the year and the Elnor Company headquarters is on Overton Road, so Elnorâ€™s property taxes will be higher next year.

(E) Since according to recent statute, a building that is exempt from property taxes is charged for city water at a special rate, and hospitals are exempt from property taxes, Founderâ€™s Hospital will be charged for city water at the special rate.

Conclusion: Founderâ€™s Hospital will be charged for city water at the special rate
Premise 1(supports conclusion): a building that is exempt from property taxes is charged for city water at a special rate
Premise 2(supports conclusion but requires Premise 1 for this to be valid): hospitals are exempt from property taxes.

(D) New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years and all new buildings in the cityâ€™s Alton district are exempt for five years, so the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.

Conclusion: the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.
Premise 1 (supporting the conclusion):New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years.
Premise 2 (supporting conclusion and an additional info): all new buildings in the cityâ€™s Alton district are exempt for five years
