Some people with a Bachelor's degree are eligible for the internship program with the district attorney's office. If a person meets the eligibility requirements for the program, that person is likely to gain admission to the local law school if he or she applies, whether or not that person actually participates in the internship program. However, no person without a Bachelor's degree is eligible to participate in the internship program.
If the statements above are all true, which of the following is properly inferred from them?
(A) All people with a Bachelor's degree who ap­ply for admission to the local law school are likely to gain admission.
(B) Some people likely to gain admission to the local law school would not have been eligible for the internship program.
(C) Some people with a Bachelor's degree are likely to gain admission to the local law school if they apply.
(D) All people eligible for the internship program hold Bachelor degrees.
(E) Without a Bachelor's degree, a person can­not gain admission to the local law school.

I will choose D (All people eligible for the internship program hold Bachelor degrees), because the statement explicitly states the same (see the bolded part)

The satement is as follows

C it is. D is a good trap. However, no person without a Bachelor's degree is eligible to participate (not eligible as such) in the internship program.

Let B = Person holding Bachelor's degree, E = Eligible for DA's office, L = Likely to gain Law school admission

No person without a Bachelor's degree is eligible to participate in the internship program means:

E -> B and ~B -> ~E

Also, "If a person meets the eligibility requirements for the program, that person is likely to gain admission to the local law school" means that

E-> L and ~L -> ~E

Fundamental concepts -> Some = "Atleast one and may be ALL"

So if "Some people with a Bachelor's degree are eligible for the internship program with the district attorney's office" it does not have to mean that there are people with Bachelor's degree who are ineligible!

Given the above, the only thing we can be sure is that there are SOME people who are elgible for Internship and E -> L so there are some people who are likely to gain admission to the Law School.

Oops I did not list my choice. C is my answer.

D is poorly worded IMO. To me it could refer to a person with just a Bachelor's degree or a person with at least a Bachelor's degree.

D for me

(D) All people eligible for the internship program hold Bachelor degrees.

To me that means people with Bachelor and above degree.
It is a common sense that a person with PhD also hold Bacheor degree.

OA is C

As I see it:
some B (bachelors) -> E (eligible for internship)
if E -(maybe)-> L (admission), if applies
no B -> no E

(С) is properly drawn: some B -> L

I guess D is a way too far, or so they say. Difficult for me to refute (I fell in the same trap), but too strong (there's "all" in it) for the answer.

I dont get it...Isnt this correct

Dont have Bach deg -> get no Intertnship
get Internship -> have bach deg

Like for instance

Dont have money -> get No service
get service -> have money


May be this is one of those questions that GMAT uses to test if you are lucky...I thought C is the trap...and selected D....couldn't refute D either...but D is so obvious....

D is not wrong but less plausible.

D says, All people eligible for the internship program hold Bachelor degrees.

D is very very strong. How do you know they dont hold a masters or Phd? I think the wording of this choice is very airtight. For a choice to be true, all the things need to be true (no more, no less).

C is very safe to infer. C says, SOME people who have B degree are LIKELY to gain admission to the local law school if they apply

I kinda agree with ranga. Choice D should not have been there or should have been differently worded.

Phd or master? That proves that you have a bachelor degree. you cannot acquire higher degree unless you are bachelor.

My answer choice is C, but D seems correct to me as well

This was a poor question
I never saw a question in Kaplan or the OG with such poor choices.
Clearly D is the best answer.
C can't even be inferred from the information.
