If the above statements are true, each of the following are true EXCEPT
A If Evans speaks against Johnson's position, Lloyd will not vote with Johnson.
B If Martin introduces an amendment to Evan's bill, then Evan has spoken against Johnson's position.

This is certainly NOT a GMAT type question although it is a brutal one. I strongly think this question is wronly worded. It should read as follows: If the above statements are true, each of the following are false EXCEPT. Can you please double check this question?
A, C and D directly contradict the stems. Only B is true.
A) contradicts the first sentence and last sentences combined
D) contradicts the first and last sentences

A for me.

Evans speaks against Johnson's position --> Martin indroduces amendment --> Lloyd and Johnson vote the same way (contradits A).

Yeah, I think the same way as Paul. The question should be "each of the following are false EXCEPT" then the ans is straightforward B.

I am really sorry guys, the question stem is -
If the above statements are true, each of the following can be true EXCEPT-

I was actually typing this question from a Manhattan GMAT test and they have no option to copy paste from their test to word.
