A) If someone is not a snob, they like large explosions. - if someone does not dislike (LIKES) HB => is not a snob=> like explosions

B) Most movie critics are snobs. - most mc dislike HB => most are snobs

C) Some movie critics are huge fans of theater. - not necessarily, some people who dislike HB and like theater can be in the group outside of the group of critics (there can be 5 critics in the group of 1000 people, 3 of them don't like HB and possibly like romantic comedies, and dislike theatres)

D) Most people over the age of fifty are snobs.- most people over 50 dislike HB => most snobs

E) Some people who dislike Hollywood blockbusters are over the age of fifty.

Most people who are over the age of fifty dislike Hollywood blockbusters.=> some dislike

I picked the wrong answer, had shortlisted A and C through POE

we are presented with a lot of facts in the prompt

B) Most movie critics are snobs. ...text from stem that states this - Most movie critics dislike Hollywood blockbusters. If someone dislikes Hollywood blockbusters they are a snob ...eliminated

D) Most people over the age of fifty are snobs. text from stem that states this - If someone dislikes Hollywood blockbusters they are a snob. Most people who are over the age of fifty dislike Hollywood blockbusters. eliminated

E) Some people who dislike Hollywood blockbusters are over the age of fifty. text from stem that states this - Most people who are over the age of fifty dislike Hollywood blockbusters.

eliminated

A) If someone is not a snob, they like large explosions. text from stem that states this - If someone dislikes Hollywood blockbusters they are a snob. If someone does not dislike Hollywood blockbusters they like large explosions. eliminated

Why I thought C was the answer...C) Some movie critics are huge fans of theater.

text from stem that I thought states this ...Most movie critics dislike Hollywood blockbusters. Some people who dislike Hollywood blockbusters are huge fans of theater.

'some people' could've fallen in the bracket of people who dislike hollywood blockbusters but are not movie critics...hence this is the correct answer as it cannot be inffered from the stem
