If all of the statements above are true, which of the following must also be true?
(A) If D, then A.
(B) If not B, then not C.
(C) If not D, then not A.
(D) If D, then E.
(E) If not A, then not D. C The stimulus basically says If A happens, then D will always happen. Therefore, if D didn't happen, A could not have happened.

(E) If not A, then not D. The answer should be C. I'll explain. Let's say: A= GMAT B= Computer Adaptive Test C= Computer test So imagine I say: If it's a GMAT, then it's a computer adaptive test. And if it's a computer adaptive test, then it's a computer test. Since you're wondering about option B, can you say that if it's not a computer adaptive test, then it's not a computer test??? there are so many non computer adaptive tests that are also computer tests such as the IQ tests or even computer skills tests. However, in option C, if it's not a computer test, then definitely it's not the GMAT

Clear C
A > B > C > D
Do the reverse:
not D > NotA

Another C.
Think of A being subset of B, B superset of C, C superset of D....Thus, if grand superset D does not exist then grand child subset A will also not exist.

It is displaying a more direct correlation between B and C. Because the stimulus is not saying C if and only if B. C could have other causes unrelated to B. However, we know that if B happens, C always happens. == Message from GMAT Club Team == This is not a quality discussion. It has been retired.
