Most residents of Brookville have lived in the small town for at least twenty-five years, although the majority of Brookville’s residents have expressed an interest in moving away from the area. Based on this information one can safely conclude that at least one resident has lived in Brookville for at least twenty-five years but has expressed an interest in moving away from the area.

The pattern of reasoning used to draw the conclusion above is most similar to that found in which of the following?

(A) Some people who live in the town of Southdown are long term residents, and many enjoy living there. Based on this information one can safely conclude that some long term residents enjoy living in Southdown.

(B) Most people who live in Stapleton are friendly, and many of Stapleton’s friendliest residents have just recently moved to town. Based on this information one can safely conclude that Stapleton’s least friendly resident has lived in town for the longest amount of time.

(C) Most of the students in Beth’s class studied for yesterday’s test, and some of those who studied did quite well. From this information one can safely conclude that most of the students who didn’t study performed poorly on the test.

(D) Every member of the football team is required to attend this week’s practice, despite the fact that some members of the team are not eligible to play in the next game. From this information one can safely conclude that at least one member will quit the team prior to the next game.

(E) Although most people believe that fast food is unhealthy, most people eat fast food on a regular basis. Based on this information one can safely conclude that there is at least one person who eats fast food on a regular basis despite the belief that fast food is unhealthy.

Readoning
Two groups - both >50%, so atleast 1 is common to both.

The pattern of reasoning used to draw the conclusion above is most similar to that found in which of the following?

(A) Some people who live in the town of Southdown are long term residents, and many enjoy living there. Based on this information one can safely conclude that some long term residents enjoy living in Southdown.
Two groups- some and many...
So it is possible that there is NO overlap in two groups..
Not the same pattern

(B) Most people who live in Stapleton are friendly, and many of Stapleton’s friendliest residents have just recently moved to town. Based on this information one can safely conclude that Stapleton’s least friendly resident has lived in town for the longest amount of time.
Two groups- first talks of most and second of many..
But in conclusion a connection is shown in other halves of both group that is (1-first ) and (1- second group) ....
Not the same pattern

(C) Most of the students in Beth’s class studied for yesterday’s test, and some of those who studied did quite well. From this information one can safely conclude that most of the students who didn’t study performed poorly on the test.
Again connection as in B

(D) Every member of the football team is required to attend this week’s practice, despite the fact that some members of the team are not eligible to play in the next game. From this information one can safely conclude that at least one member will quit the team prior to the next game.
Connection in conclusion of a totally unrelated term - quit., Which is not there in any of two group

(E) Although most people believe that fast food is unhealthy, most people eat fast food on a regular basis. Based on this information one can safely conclude that there is at least one person who eats fast food on a regular basis despite the belief that fast food is unhealthy.
Two groups- most and most. Connection in two rahte atleast one is common in both group

E
