UN Security Council [#permalink] New post 01 Nov 2005, 05:44
No small countries and no countries in the southern
hemisphere have permanent seats on the United
Nations Security Council. Each of the five countries
with a permanent seat on the Security Council is in
favor of increased international peacekeeping efforts
and a greater role for the United Nations in moderating
regional disputes. However, some countries that are in
favor of increased international peacekeeping efforts
are firmly against increased spending on refugees by
the United Nations.

If the statements above are true, which one of the
following must also be true?
(A) Some small countries do not want the United
Nations to increase its spending on refugees.
(B) Some countries in the southern hemisphere are
not in favor of increased international
peacekeeping efforts.
(C) Some countries that have permanent seats on the
United Nations Security Council are against
increased spending on refugees by the United
Nations.
(D) Some small countries are in favor of a greater
role for the United Nations in moderating
regional disputes.
(E) Some countries that are in favor of a greater
role for the United Nations in moderating
regional disputes are not located in the
southern hemisphere.

C cannot be determined by the information in the passage. E however, suggests that at least one of the permanent security council UN members or another northern hemishere country is in favor of increased international peacekeeping operations. As all five UNSC countries are above the equator, this must be true.

100% E.

OA is E.

Understand this qn can also be solved by techniques of formal logic. Would appreciate if anyone can show how.
