In a certain state, hunting permits require the hunter to be at least 18 years old, possess a valid driver's license or state identification, and have completed a safety program within the past 5 years. The hunter must also sign a legal document pledging not to consume alcohol while hunting.

Which of the following can be correctly inferred from the above statements?

(A) All states have the same requirements for hunting permits.

(B) Hunters under the age of 21 don't need to sign the alcohol pledge because they are not legally allowed to drink alcohol under any circumstances.

(C) If a person last completed the safety program six years ago, he will have to complete the program again before he can be eligible for a permit in this state.

(D) Someone who isn't 18 years old cannot obtain a hunting permit in this state.

(E) Hunting is such a dangerous activity that state controls and requirements are necessary to ensure that nobody gets hurt.

IMO correct answer is choice C.
A) All states have the same requirements for hunting permits. We dont know about laws of other states from stimulus.
B) Hunters under the age of 21 don’t need to sign the alcohol pledge because they are not legally allowed to drink alcohol under any circumstances. Cannot be concluded from argument.
C) If a person last completed the safety program six years ago, he will have to complete the program again before he can be eligible for a permit. Correct, as req of safety program within last 5 yrs is cited in argument.
D) Someone who isn’t 18 years old cannot obtain a hunting permit in this state. It does not clarify about the group >18 yrs & <18 Yrs.
E) Hunting is such a dangerous activity that state controls and requirements are necessary to ensure that nobody gets hurt. Out of scope.

How could option be correct?

May be he could & be eligible for the permit in some other state. Isn't this option covers all the states than the "certain" state that is discussed in the stimulus?

Partially agree with you point. Nevertheless, no other answer than this one sounds convincing. So pick this one and move on.

Cheers!

negated option 'D' because atleast 18 means greater than equal to 18.
so 18 year old is infact wil get permit if he folow al the pre-set rules.

I went with (C) just to be super safe but what's wrong with (B)
Is it that we cannot assume that the legal drinking age is 21 because it is not stated explicitly in the passage?

i went with D. But i realized my mistake..i assumed the meaning of 'Someone who isn’t 18 years old' as less than 18...super trap.

C doesn't state if the person justifies other required parameters. What if the person is not justifying other parameters ?
Merely completing the "Safety program", wouldn't make him eligible. Doesn't sound appropriate to me. Are we assuming other parameters :D

Tricky option!

Some one who isn't 18 implies he can be either younger than 18 or older than 18.(A bit of DS think required here :lol: )
