Steve and JoAnne are both members of a certain club, though they are not speaking to each other. Cecily, the club president, is appointing members to the fundraising committee, but she has resolved that she will not appoint anyone without his or her explicit consent. Steve tells Cecily, 'I will not consent to appointment on that committee unless I know whether JoAnne is to be a member of it.' And JoAnne says, 'I will not consent to be a member of that committee unless I know whether Steve will be appointed to it.' If all three of these people stick by these resolutions, then:
A) Neither of them can be appointed to the committee.
B) The situation described in the scenario cannot arise, because it is inherently incoherent.
C) They must either both be appointed or both be left out.
D) The committee may finally have one of them, both of them, or neither of them as members.
E) Either one of them can be appointed, but not both.
My guess: A (If you guys see it without selecting can you please let me know, how someone usually hides it)
Will go with D.
From the passage we know that "Steve tells Cecily, 'I will not consent to appointment on that committee unless I know whether JoAnne is to be a member of it.' And JoAnne says, 'I will not consent to be a member of that committee unless I know whether Steve will be appointed to it.' " Now this tells us that both their consent iS dependent on the information not whether somebody is on the commitee or not.
For example We know that steve won't give a consent unless he knows whether Jaon is on the commitee. Lets say he gets to know that but we don't know whether he will give a consent based on that information or not. That is he may choose to serve or may not choose to serve.
