Citizen of Mooresville: Mooresvilleâ€™s current city council is having a ruinous effect on municipal finances. Since a majority of the incumbents are running for reelection, I am going to campaign against all these incumbents in the upcoming city council election. The only incumbent I will support and vote for is the one who represents my own neighborhood, because she has the experience necessary to ensure that our neighborhoods interests are served. If everyone in Mooresville would follow my example, we could substantially change the councilâ€™s membership.
Assuming that each citizen of Mooresville is allowed to vote only for a city council representative from his or her own neighborhood, for the councilâ€™s membership to be changed substantially, it must be true that

(A) at least some other voters in Mooresville do not make the same exception for their own incumbent in the upcoming election
(B) most of the eligible voters in Mooresville vote in the upcoming election
(C) few of the incumbents on the Mooresville city council have run for reelection in previous elections
(D) all of the seats on the Mooresville city council are filled by incumbents whose terms are expiring
(E) none of the challengers in the upcoming election for seats on Mooresvilleâ€™s city council are better able to serve the interests of their neighborhoods than were the incumbents

It seems (A) is logical.

Because if all voters think similar way there is no guarantee that the candidates from every neighborhood would win in city election. So there should be exceptions so that voters from neighborhood A vote for another neighborhoodâ€™s candidate.

I do not even think A is right. At least some...for an incumbant to be beat doesn't a majority have to vote against them, not just some?
