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.

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.

can any one please enlighten ?

Thanks

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.
