I will go with C.

If not D, then not A. If D has not occured, we can trace it all the way back to A not occuring.

Hi Guys..
Thanks for u r reponses.
The OA is indeed C But, I argue why not B ? It is clearly said in the question statement tht "if B then C" that is C is there coz of B hence if there is no B then no C.

can any one please enlighten ?

Thanks

If A, then B.
If B, then C.
If C, then D.

Then if A then D

Contrapositive of this is also true:
if Not D then Not A

Deductive logic is fun and much more interesting than inductive logic. But most GMAT prep books do not address deductive logic . Some LSAT books do.
Alternatively, You can borrow the Copi-Cohen's book from local library and spend a weekend over it. I'm sure you will significantly improve your reasoning ability.

What about 'E'?

If not A then not B
If not B then not C
If not C then not D.

Therefore, if not A then not D is true.

Please help me to understand why 'E' is wrong.

If A then B is given , you CAN NOT conclude
If Not A then not B.

I'll recommend Copi-Cohen's book to you also.

It's not B because it says if B then C and not if B then only C. C may be because of lets say X.

If not C then not B would have been correct.
