agree with the above explanation..
I also pointed out the answer by eliminating the options having extreme words.
Only C doesn't have any extreme word.

If the information above is true, which of the following must also be true?

(A) No French painters are Vorticists.
(B) All Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(C) Some French painters do not use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works.
(E) All French painters who use acrylics use acrylic monochromes in their works.

It should be C. We know that there are no acrylic monochrome paintings in the gallery, because only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes, and there are no Vorticists in the gallery. If all the paintings in the gallery are French, and none of them are acrylic monochromes, it must be that some French painters don't use acrylic monochromes.

Agree with Ian, It should be C

Amazing !!

Nobody's looking at the word 'ONLY' .. Its straight away mentioned that 'Only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works.'

And hence .. Neither french painters .. nor italian painters .. nor english painters .. rather nobody in this world uses acrylic monochrome , only the vorticists use it !!

And hence the answer is (D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works. !

I think you've misunderstood. 'French' is a nationality. 'Vorticism' is a style of painting. You can be French and also be a Vorticist.

Whoops ! .. This one requires ones general knowledge .. One needs to be arts aware to solve this .. I really did'nt have any idea about this whole concept of vorticists and neither did I expect such a GK test !!

I wonder what to do now if I am supposed to apply my general knowledge and senses in questions like - If all trucks are bicycles ..

Anyways .. Thanks Ian for your quick resolution .. kudos from me !
