### HideShow timer Statistics

Amy McConnell is considering running for election against the incumbent, Gregory Lutz. If Lutz has a large campaign fund, then he is already far ahead, and McConnell will not run against him. If Lutz does not have a large campaign fund, McConnell will scrutinize Lutzâ€™s record for any hints of scandal that she could use against him. Anything of a scandalous nature would increase McConnellâ€™s chances of winning, and she would campaign for election. If Lutz has a clean record, however, McConnell will not run against him.
Given the information in the passage, which one of the following must be false?
(A) Lutz does not have a large campaign fund, and McConnell does not run against him.
(B) Lutzâ€™s record contains items that would increase McConnellâ€™s chances of winning, and she runs against him.
(C) Lutzâ€™s record contains scandalous items, and McConnell does not run against him.
(D) Lutzâ€™s record contains nothing that would increase McConnellâ€™s chances of winning, and she runs against him.
(E) Lutz has a large campaign fund, and McConnell does not run against him.

I guess it is (C).

(A): could be true if L has clean record.
(B): true
(D): it does not say wether L has clean record. So, could be true
(E): true

C.
The option negates followign premise:
Anything of a scandalous nature would increase McConnellâ€™s chances of winning, and she would campaign for election.

I like D - A can be true if Lutz has a clean record. B can be true if Lutz doesn't have a large campaign fund and has something bad on his record. C can be true if Lutz has a large campaign fund already established. E can be true because the passage states that if Lutz has a large campaign fund then McDonnell won't run against him. D is always false.

I agree with you, Chet! D it is.
C can be true if Lutz already has a large campaign fund. McConnell will not even look at his records in that case.

its clearly D.
C cannot be the answer 'coz even though L has some weak points, there is a chance that L could also have a strong campaign funding.
Hence, in such a case, M would not contest against him.

I agree, it is clearly D.

C can be true because if Lutz has large campaign fund, then even though Lutzâ€™s record contains scandalous items, McConnell will not run against him.
