Went for D.

Stem:
1.All P=F
2.No P=V
3.Only V=C
Try to draw the above as Vien diagrams and you will see that D follows.

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.

Thanks Ian for explaining - I have misdrawn my diagrams and I agree the answer should be C.
After a busy day at work I didn't pay attention in the logic. Assuming one can draw his diagrams correctly, it is a mechanical question. But drawing is sometimes error prone. How would you solve such questions?

We are inclined to D because we think Vorticists and French are mutual exclusive. In fact some painter who are Vorticists can be French people. Even though I do not know who Vorticists are but they are definitely not a nationality name

The best way to solve this questions is to eliminate answers with EXTREME words.
In case inference questions in GMAT (infer, must be also true, support), NO EXTREME words should be in a right answer.
Fortunately, all answers except C have extreme words
A) NO - extreme
B) ALL - extreme
C) Some -it's ok
D) NO -extreme
E) ALL -extreme

I just scanned through the answers and even didn't read them as all exteme words are in the begining here. Straight to C.

There are no acrylic monochrome paintings in the gallery and only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes. Hence, there are no painitngs by Vorticists in the gallery. All the paintings in the gallery are by French, and not made by using acrylic monochromes.
Conclusion: Some French painters don't use acrylic monochromes.

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.

This CR looked easy to me. Looked at the answer choices and went for C as the answer.

Believe the key would be to eliminate the extreme choices and look for boundary/exceptional cases that might break some of the answer choices.

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.

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 !

Let us break the question stem into premises and conclusions.
Premise 1: Every painting hanging in the Hoular Gallery is by a French painter. (this means that there is no painting in the gallery which is not the work of a French artist)
Premise 2: No painting in the Hoular Gallery is by a Vorticist. (this means that there is no painting in the gallery which is the work of a Vorticist)
Premise 3: Only Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works. (this means that the use of acrylic monochromes is exclusive to Vorticists and no other type of artists use it)
Therefore, we can conclude by a combination of all 3 premises that, the Hoular Gallery has only paintings by French artists, and there are no acrylic monochrome paintings.

Now let us examine the options:
Option 1 states: (A) No French painters are Vorticists. This is wrong. Just because the Hoular Gallery does not have paintings by Vorticists doesn't mean that there aren't French Vorticists. There may be but their paintings may not be in the gallery. Hence, option A is incorrect.
Option 2 states: (B) All Vorticists use acrylic monochromes in their works. This is incorrect because the premise doesn't state that all Vorticists use acrylic monochromes. There may be some Vorticists who do not use acrylic monochromes. But no other type of painters use it.
Option 3 states: (C) Some French painters do not use acrylic monochromes in their works. This is correct because out of all the French painters, some use acrylic monochromes, but some do not. Also, the fact that there are French painters who's works are in the gallery show that not all Frent painters use acrylic monochromes.
Option 4 states: (D) No French painters use acrylic monochromes in their works.This is incorrect because there may be French painters who's paintings are not in the gallery who use acrylic monochromes in their works.
Option 5 States: (E) All French painters who use acrylics use acrylic monochromes in their works.This is incorrect and not based on the information given to us in the question stem. It is not necessary that "All" French painters who use acrylics use acrylic monochromes in their works. They may use other acrylics too.

Therefore, option C is the answer.

Why is D not correct . How can we say SOME French painters do not use acrylic monochromes
