If Paul comes to the party, Quentin leaves the party. If Quentin leaves the party, either Robert or Steve asks Alice to dance. If Alice is asked to dance by either Robert or Steve and Quentin leaves the party, Alice accepts. If Alice is asked to dance by either Robert or Steve and Quentin does not leave the party, Alice does not accept. If Quentin does not leave the party, which of the following statements can be logically deduced from the information given?

(A) Robert asks Alice to dance.
(B) Steve asks Alice to dance.
(C) Alice refuses to dance with either Robert or Steve.
(D) Paul does not come to the party.
(E) Alice leaves the party.

If Quentin leaves the party, either Robert or Steve asks Alice to dance, this does not mean if Quentin does NOT leave the party Robert or Steve will NOT ask Alice to dance.
For if it meant so then the argument would contradict itself.
If Alice is asked to dance by either Robert or Steve and Quentin does not leave the party, Alice does not accept. - This statement could not be possible unless it is possible that Quentin has not left the party but still Alice was asked for a dance either by Robert or Steve.

How can we rule out C?
