My take:

All those who keep a journal will be heard by the next generation. Some of these journal writers are true artists, others humorous observers of the commonplace, and still others insufferable egotists who feel compelled to record their every thought.

If the statements above are true, which one of the following must be true?

(A) Not all of those who are humorous observers of the commonplace will be heard by the next generation.
Nowhere does it say that not all humorous observers keep a journal. So it's possible that all humorous observers keep a journal, meaning that it's possible that all humorous observers will be heard by the next generation. Could be true, but doesn't have to be.

(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal.
Nowhere does it say that the next generation will ONLY hear those who keep a journal. It's possible that they also hear people who do not keep journals. Could be true, but doesn't have to be.

(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.
Since some insufferable egotists and some true artists keep journals, and everyone who keeps a journal will be heard by the next generation, then it goes to say that the next generation will at least hear some insufferable egotists and some true artists (at least those who keep journals, since we know that at least some do). Has to be true.

(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists.
Nowhere does it say that the list given is exhaustive, and nowhere does it say that it isn't. It is conceivable that other types of people may keep journals as well, however it is also possible that these are the ONLY people that keep journals, and so that there are no other types of people who do. Could be true, but doesn't have to be.

(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them.
Nowhere does it say that not all true artists keep journals. It's possible that they all do, so it's possible that the next generation will hear them all. Could be true, but doesn't have to be.

Let me know if I'm wrong.

I guess there is no point in posting the question and not the OA later. I am still guessing the answer. Sorry for being rude.

I dont think C will be the OA. C says:

(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists.
Where is mentioned in the passage that all egotists and true artists (Parent part) kept journals. We have the fact: Some of these journal writers are true artists, egoists...(Child part) This choice is nailing down on the parent-child relationship.

IMO A and E are the closest contenders.

Before moving to answer choices. Stimulus classifies the journal keepers into -

1. True artists
2. Humorous
3. Egotists

A) Not all of those who are humorous observers of the commonplace will be heard by the next generation. --- Opposite idea. In stimulus it says all the humorous observers will be heard by the next generation. Answer choice says - not all will be heard. Hence a potential loser.

(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal. --- Reverse idea is presented. Stimulus says all the people who keep the journals will be heard and not the other way around mentioned in the answer choice. Hence a potential loser.

(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists. --- Stimulus mentions all the true artist, egotists and the humorous will be heard. Hence it has to be true. Hence a potential contender.

(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists. --- Journal keepers are classified only into these 3 categories. Hence it cannot be true. Hence a potential loser.

(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them.
--- Opposite idea. All the true artist will be heard by next generation.

Please post the OA. Thank You.

С?

The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists - sure? it is not stated that ALL insufferable egotists and true artists keep journal. what if part of them do not keep? - thus C can be tru can be false. but it is not - must be true.

Thanks in advance.

I,m going with C on this one.

Actually, I was between A,C,E

A was out because we could have the case in which all HO will be heard.
E out as well because we could also have the case in which all TA will be heard
C is the correct choice because it is the less extreme. The NG wil hear both groups, that's for sure!

Just my 2c, if you like it press Kudos to your left

All those who keep a journal will be heard by the next generation.
Some of these journal writers are true artists, others humorous observers of the commonplace, and still others insufferable egotists who feel compelled to record their every thought.

(A) Not all of those who are humorous observers of the commonplace will be heard by the next generation...may not be true..may be all humorous observers keep journal..
(B) Everyone who will be heard by the next generation keeps a journal.reverse relation... may not be true... there could be other reasons for being heard also...
(C) The next generation will hear both insufferable egotists and true artists....looks ok... keep it.
(D) Some of those who keep journals are not true artists, humorous observers of the commonplace, or insufferable egotists.may or may not be true...may be these are the only three categories...
(E) The next generation will bear some of those who are true artists but not all of them......"bear" doesnt matter hear..." heard" does....

IMO- " C"
