This seems to be a LSAT question and its taking me way too long to solve :crying

It has to be E

M - Could send building supplies + other
T - Could send building supplies + other
W - Could send building supplies + other
Th - 5 specially ordered shipments
F - All shipments were building supplies

4 shipments sent to Truax, 3 were building supplies, 1 was not

A. At least one of the shipments sent to Truax Construction last week was specially ordered. ==> We don't know this

B. At least one of last week’s specially ordered shipments did not consist of building supplies. ==> We don't know this

C. At least one of the shipments sent to Truax Construction was not sent out on Thursday of last week. ==> We don't know this

D. At least one of the shipments that were sent out on Friday of last week was sent to Truax Construction. ==> Not necesarily true - We don't know if 3 orderes of building supplies were shipped M-Th

E. At least one of the shipments sent to Truax Construction last week was sent out before Friday. ==> Correct! 1 of the Truax order does not consist of buildling supplies, and we are told that only building supplies were shipped on Friday so that 1 order must've been shipped before Friday
