(B) Some people are fat and no one eats chocolate.
(C) Everyone is fat.
(D) No one is fat and no one reads Weight-Off.

-----------------------
OA is A

OE:

Three possibilities exist:
(a) You read Weight-Off magazine, are fat, and do not eat chocolate.
(b) You are fat, eat chocolate, but do not read Weight-Off magazine.
(c) You eat chocolate, are not fat, and do not read Weight-Off magazine.

Thus,
(A) is inconsistent by (a) and (b). (B) is not inconsistent if (b) and (c) are void of people. (C) is not inconsistent if (c) is void of people. (D) and (E) are not inconsistent by (c) and (a)
