A bit tricky but B it is.
Even though Chase works in the publishing industry, he could be approved as long as he does not know anyone who works in the entertainment industry. This is the safest answer because even though he did not know anyone in the entertainment industry, he could still have known people who had links with the entertainment industry which would have made him have "indirect connections" to that industry. D was a tempting answer :lol:

conclusion entails the gist of the paragraph. C and D are wide open.

B is the only one that come close.

It has to be B only. D is really a trap, I believe.

Please publish OA.

Doesn't look like a GMAT question

I will go with E

If Chase HAS FINANCED a Hollywood movie then he has connections with the entertainment industry. It all depends of course how you define "connections" and "entertainment industry"

I think that to conclude from "A knows B who has connection with C" that "A has connections with C" is preposterous. That's why B is out for me

E is disputable too because Chase may have financed a movie IN THE PAST, that is he could have connections with the entertainment industry in the past but he no more maintains these relations. However, the passage uses expression "ANY connections" so I assume that PAST connections qualify under ANY connections

Is Holywood a part of an entertainment industry? I believe so...

'has not financed' means that he has not done so far. It does not indicate any future proof that he will not do so.


The requirement is 'one must not have connections' which is always true. It means that if he does so in the future, he has to forgo his membership.

So, I believe B is still fine. However, I await the OA with explanation. I may be wrong too 8-)

The answer is E.

Even I chose B. But the book explained that only if B is already true he can become the member of BCC. So, the conclusion must be E.
