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.

Here's my explaination :

Some good cooks are gourment cooks, fast food cooks, health food cooks
All good cooks (Which in this case are some good cooks) are big eaters and enjoy preparing and serving food.

close answers are C and D,

C - (More) good cooks who do not use such ingredients < (Some) more good cooks who use extravagently rich ingredients.

D - good cooks who enjoy serving and preparing food < good cooks who are big eaters.

Seems like D is the answer but can't say for sure. Toss up b/w C and D.

Anyone who can assist? Thanks

The argument says : not all good cooks are big eaters
That means some good cooks are not big eaters.
This is what C says in a different sense.

Now,All good cooks enjoy prep. so they are greater in number than those that are big eaters as explained above.So,D cant be true.
