Hi zoezhuyan!

Happy to help :-) Negating can definitely be tricky. If you're unsure how exactly to negate a statement, then start by simply adding "It is not true that..." So for example,

C) No motifs appear in the Sepphoris mosaics that do not also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city.

--> It is not true that no motifs appear in the Sepphoris mosaics that do not also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city.

Now, what does this mean? If this statement is not true, then that means that there could be a motif that appears in the Sepphoris mosaics that doesn't also appear in other mosaics. It does not mean that that is necessarily the case. So a negation of C might be:

There may be motifs which appear in the Sepphoris mosaics that do not also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city.

So to negate a statement we don't necessarily need to reverse the negative words -- just add "it is not true that...", think about what that really means, and then rephrase it in your own way (if necessary).

I hope that helps a bit! :-)
