Gift packages sent after Tuesday --> non customized

(A) At least one of the gift packages sent to Technocorp last week was not custom-made. - Incorrect. May be true but not a must be true statement. All 7 gift packages may me custom made.
(B) At least one of the custom-made gift packages sent last week was, not directed to Technocorp. - Incorrect. All 7 may have been sent to Technocorp. We cannot decide conclusively whether some gift packages were diverted to a different company.
(C) The majority of the gift packages sent to Technocorp last week Were sent on Wednesday or later. - Incorrect. This cannot be determined conclusively.
(D) Some of the gift packages sent to Technocorp last week were sent on TuesdaY or earlier. - Correct. Atleast 2 of the gift packages were custom made. So, those packages had to be sent before Wednesday.
(E) Technocorp received a higher proportion of the gift packages sent last week from Gift Catalogue Inc. than any other recipient. - Incorrect. Cannot be determined.

Hope it helps

(A) It is given in stimulus " at least two " were customer made , which leaves us with the possibility that all the packages of sent to Technocorp could be Custom made...

(B) Out of scope

(C) It may not be true, it is possible that Gift Catalogue Inc. sent mpst / all of the packages from Monday - Tuesday..

(D) As per the delivery schedule of Gift Catalogue Inc custom make packages were sent only on Monday & Tuesday and atleast one Customer package was sent to Technocorp , then it suggests that the custome Package was Sent on Tuesday/Earlier.

(E) Comparison of recipients is out of scope..

Hence, correct answer must be (B)

this question is not too hard for a normal international student to fully understand the argument. Nevertheless, a person may pick D even he or she may not read other options because of instinct from severe practicing.
