BCD are out for wrong placement of 'not'. the relative modifier 'that..' can not modify 'knoweldgeable'

Sentence is checking where not can be placed correctly.

Not is limiting modifier and should be placed only before the word it modifies.

E.g (B) for everyone in attendance did not know -------> changes the meaning of the sentence.

Everyone in attendance did not know ----> means 100% of attendance. This means everyone is dumb to not know.

Not everyone in attendance --> less than 100% of attendance ---> Some people knew. Bulls eye.

During her lecture the speaker used map to clarify directional terms, for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable that winds are designated by the direction from which they come.

(A) or not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable
(B) for everyone in attendance did not know
(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing
(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable
(E) for not everyone attending knew

not everyone ---------> is correct
that eliminates B, C and D

A : is gibberish. OUT

E is left.

hmmm doesnt all this boil down to the fact that 'not' is placed wrongly? if 'not' is moved around in each of the choices, wont the meaning be changed? this is what is giving the wrong meanings as you explained with detailed examples. just because i dint elucidate the meaning of each of the sentences doesnt make my reasnoning wrong. besides, A is gibberish because the relative modifier 'that...' modifies the subjects 'knoweldgeable' that just doesnot make sense.

thats what the problem is. it must be a relative modifier to make sense. bit instead 'winds' is made subject is the next clause. E solves the problem by removing 'that'
