The answer is C as you know. Here is why:

Per the shipping clerk

Friday - No shipments of building supplies
Five specially ordered shipments sent in the week - all 5 sent on Thursday - all were building supplies
Four shipments to truax construction in the week - no building supplies

Your answer choice - B is incorrect since Truax may or may not have rec'd shipments on Friday. (none of Truax shipments were building supplies and on Friday no building supplies were shipped).

The correct answer choice is C. Since all of the specially ordered shipments was of building supplies and Truax did not order any building supplies, this is the only choice that can be completely correct based on the passage.

BTW, if you want to practice some more critical reasoning questions, you can get some free ones on www.yourperfectscore.com. (GMAT Questions). I found those to be helpful. Let me know what you think.

If argument mentioned only four shipments to T corpration, then C would have been ok.But for me D sounds safe.

Comcorp Shipping Clerk: Last week, no shipments of building supplies were sent out on friday. The five specially ordered shipments sent out last week were sent out on Thursday, and each of those specially ordered shipments consisted entirely of building supplies. Four shipments were sent to Truax Construction last week, none of which consisted of building supplies.

If the shipping clerk's statements are true, which of the following must also be true?

A. All of Comcorp's shipments of building supplies last week were specially ordered.
B. None of Comcorp's shipments sent on friday of last week was sent to Truax Construction.
C. None of the shipments sent by Comcorp by Truax Construction last week was specially ordered.
D. None of Comcorp's shipments sent on thursday of last week was sent to Truax Construction.
E. All of Comcorp's shipments of building supplies last week were sent out on thursday.

========================

Friday - no Building supply
5 specially ordered + thursday + all building supply
4 to Traux + No building supply

a- Yes or No - All specially ordered - incorrect
b - only building supply were not sent on Friday , other things could be sent to Truax - means four could be sent on Friday- incorrect
c - Non building supply were sent to Truax - and only building supply were specially ordered hence - True
d - could be sent
e - could be sent / or not
