Every delegate to the convention is a party member.
Some delegates to the convention are government officials imply that every government official at convention is party member.
Where am I wrong choosing option "E"?

First off, we can definitely prove C. If some delegates are government officials and also speakers, then those people are both delegates and speakers. That proves C, which only requires us to demonstrate that at least one speaker is a delegate.

If you choose E, you're assuming that everyone at the convention is a delegate. If there is even one government official at the convention who is not a delegate, then that official may not be a party member, so E fails.

"Party members" comprise the largest group, so picture them at the top. SOME of those party members all delegates to the convention. ALL of the delegates are members of the party, and SOME of those delegates are government officials. So any of the delegates who are government officials would certainly be party members as well.

However, there might be OTHER government officials at the convention who are not DELEGATES. Since they are not delegates, they would not necessarily be members of the party. (E) might be true, but it does not have to be true.
