Most Brazilian citizens are fluent speakers of Portuguese. Some Brazilian citizens speak Japanese. Therefore, some Brazilian citizens are bilingual (i.e., can speak two

languages).
Which of the following describes the conclusion above?

A) The conclusion given above follows conclusively from the stated premises.

B) The conclusion follows from the premises, but it cannot represent the actual situation in Brazil, since the premises cannot both be true.

C) Since the premises of this argument are true, and the conclusion does not follow from them, we can infer that all Brazilian citizens are monolingual (i.e., speak only

one language).

D) Since the conclusion of this argument is true, and it follows from the premises, we can infer that the premises are also true.

E) The conclusion of this argument does not follow from the premises, but we cannot thereby infer anything about the truth of either the premises or the conclusion.

I`d say is E.

Many Japanese live in Brazil, and it is not necessarily the case that they speak Portuguese.

I feel happy after getting E. Usually hate this kind of lawyers' logic.
