The new perfume Aurora smells worse to Joan than any comparably priced perfume, and none of her friend likes the smell of Aurora as much as the smell of other perfumes. However, she and her friends must have a defect in their sense of smell, since Professor Jameson prefers the smell of Aurora to that of any other perfume and she is one of the world’s foremost experts on the physiology of smell.

21. From the information presented in the support of the conclusion, it can be properly inferred that

(A) none of Joan’s friends is an expert on the physiology of smell
(B) Joan prefers all other perfumes to Aurora
(C) Professor Jameson is not one of Joan’s friends
(D) none of Joan’s friends likes Aurora perfume
(E) Joan and her friends all like the same kinds of perfumes

Agree with C

(A) none of Joan’s friends is an expert on the physiology of smell
##too broad to infer this from the given argument

(B) Joan prefers all other perfumes to Aurora
##again too broad - joan might not have tried some perfume over which Aurora could be preferred

(C) Professor Jameson is not one of Joan’s friends
##this is it!

(D) none of Joan’s friends likes Aurora perfume
## this is stated in the argument - cannot be an inference from the argument

(E) Joan and her friends all like the same kinds of perfumes
## obviously not the corrct option
