Some good cooks are gourmet cooks who pride themselves on always using extravagantly rich ingredients in elaborate recipes. Some good cooks can be characterized as fast-food cooks. They may use rich ingredients as long as the recipes are easy to follow and take little time. Other good cooks are health food enthusiasts, who are concerned primarily with the nutritional value of food. But even though not all good cooks are big eaters, they all enjoy preparing and serving food.
If the information in the passage is true, which one of the following CANNOT be true?
(A) Most good cooks do not use extravagantly rich ingredients.
(B) Everyone who enjoys preparing and serving food is a good cook.
(C) More good cooks who use extravagantly rich ingredients are big eaters than are good cooks who do not use such ingredients.
(D) There are fewer good cooks who enjoy serving and preparing food than there are good cooks who are big eaters.
(E) Gourmet cooks, fast-food cooks, and cooks who are health food enthusiasts are all big eaters.

E is obviously false. Rest all are not completely specified, so fall under the "probably" category.

E is definitely false because of these statements
"Some good cooks are gourmet cooks ..."
"Some good cooks can be characterized as fast-food cooks..."
"Other good cooks are health food enthusiasts..."

Thus the set of good cooks include gourmet cooks, fast food cooks and health food enthusiasts.

"But even though not all good cooks are big eaters...".

This seals the fate for E.

gotta be "D"

last sentence clearly says that not all good cooks r big eaters but they all enjoy preparing food. D is just saying the opposite.

OA is D

banerjee you are great. I had gone with E but could not figure out why D was correct. After reading your explanation I realised why D was correct. Guys thanks for the inputs
