If the book club will feature only 6 of the best novels, this means some members of the club wil read all the novels written by local authors and have a say on what constitutes the top 6.

Why it can't be (D)?
It's assumed (by "Club registration fee") that one should be a member to get in.

I dont think D is right .
The question stem tells us
"Club registration fee includes all books, refreshments at meetings, and admission to each signing event"
But this no where tells us that only club members will admitted to signing events.

The simple rule for must be true is it is necessary to distinguish between information that might orcould be true,and information that is presented in the passage.
The passage no where claims D to be true

how can we eliminate C ? i mean the primus says
refreshments at meetings, and admission to each signing event

this distinction clearly hints that regular meetings and sighing events are not same.

i mean if it were same the sentence should read admission and refreshments at signing events and other meetings.

I have a question: How did you prepare for each section? and also, how did you not get a 51 on verbal when not missing any of the questions?

In my opinion, "six of the best new novels" in option E can also mean that six novels out of, for instance, the 12 best novels were chosen. In this case it is not necessary to identify the best 6, the bookclub can simply pick 6 out of those 12 randomly. However, if we interpret this part as there are only 6 best novels, then obviously it must be decided which ones are the best.
