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! :-)

WOW....Thanks Carlyn,
I like the approach, I want to try it on assumption questions.

Thanks so much.

Have a nice day.

Hi, can anyone help to translate the meaning of answer choice C? I have difficulties translating a sentence which contains two 'no's

C and E are main contenders here
C does not address the concern as if all animals are native we are still not sure whether mosaics are made by travellers or not
E perfectly address this concern
If everyone is familiar with style of mosaics then it is possible that mosaics are not made by travellers
