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.

It usually takes me around 5 min to solve such questions...How to solve these??

If it takes you 5 minutes to solve this, it'll take me at least 10. I'm leaning towards A, but I'm not sure.

One week ago, my reading speed was 125 words / 1 minute. I made no improvement in these days. Be tough...

I am having a hard time with this one. I decided to reply just so I could track the answers. What is the OA?

I think the answer is D

for such questions I tend to write them as

if X then Y

and look for similar logical constructs in 5 choices
It does take close to 3 min for me, but works
