12. It is clear that none of the volleyball players at yesterdayâ€™s office beach party came to work today since everyone who played volleyball at that party got badly sunburned and no one at work today is even slightly sunburned.

Which one of the following exhibits a pattern of reasoning that most closely parallels that in the argument above?

(A) Since everyone employed by TRF who was given the opportunity to purchase dental insurance did so and everyone who purchased dental insurance saw a dentist, it is clear that no one who failed to see a dentist is employed by TRF.
(B) Since no one who was promoted during the past year failed to attend the awards banquet, evidently none of the office managers attended the banquet this year since they were all denied promotion.
(C) Since the Donnely report was not finished on time, no one in Johnâ€™s group could have been assigned to contribute to that report since everyone in Johnâ€™s group has a reputation for getting assignments in on time.
(D) Everyone with an office on the second floor works directly for the president and, as a result, no one with a second floor office will take a July vacation because no one who works for the president will be able to take time off during July.
(E) Since all of the people who are now on the MXM Corporation payroll have been employed in the same job for the past five years, it is clear that no one who frequently changes jobs is likely to be hired by MXM.

B)...i would attack it like this. the pattern in the arg goes like this: since everyone and no one => none.

A) since everyone and everyone = no one => wrong pattern
B) since no one and since all = none => wrong pattern
C) since not and since everyone = no one => first fact refers to an object => wrong
D) everyone and no one = no one
E) since all = no one => wrong pattern

its b/w B) and D). i decide for B), because in the arg as well as in B) "all/everyone" follows the conclusion. in D) "no one" follows the conclusion.

Christoph, could you elaborate a little what the => notation means ?

B seems good.

cristoph's matrix is great!

ywilfred, I guess by "=>", christoph meant "conclusion"

=> means "implies" in math
