A. No one who thought the Republican argued more convincingly than the Democrat intends to vote for the Republican candidate.
no information provided for this statement to be true
B. No one who heard the debates is a registered Republican.
cannot say that no one who heard the debate is a registered republican, it was mentioned in the paragraph that None of the people who listened to the debates and thought ... is a registered Republican
C. Some of those who intend to vote for the Republican candidate thought the Republican argued more convincingly.
no information about the republican candidate's debate is provided in the passsage
D. Not everyone who intends to vote for the Republican candidate is a registered Republican.
correct answer but some of these people intend to vote for the Republican candidate anyway clearly states that though these people were not registered republican they still intend to vote for Republicans
E. Everyone who thought the Democrat argued more convincingly than the Republican is a registered Democrat.
no information provided to conclude this statement

The answer is D
The question is about sets I think
The argument mentions intersection of who listened to the debate and thought that democrats argued more convincingly.
Only option D can be deducted as there can be registered democrats or republican as well as people who are not registered .
A ,B are too extreme .
C no information is provided for this
E no information is provided.

D is the answer
A,B and E can be directly eliminated
C can be tricky,But when you read carefully you can see this is no where mentioned in the argument.
D can be directly inferred

Other options except D contains information that is not mentioned in the passage.

from the argument, test takers can see that "some of registered Republican candidates intends to vote for the Republican candidate" => match the prediction D

If the statements above are true, which one of the statements below must also be true?

A. No one who thought the Republican argued more convincingly than the Democrat intends to vote for the Republican candidate. Too strong to infer

B. No one who heard the debates is a registered Republican. We can't infer

C. Some of those who intend to vote for the Republican candidate thought the Republican argued more convincingly. ( D is more close to the passage)

D. Not everyone who intends to vote for the Republican candidate is a registered Republican. (More close to the passage)

E. Everyone who thought the Democrat argued more convincingly than the Republican is a registered Democrat. Too strong to infer

Using POE, I reached to (D)
