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?
