Steve and JoAnne are both members of a certain club, though they are not speaking to each other. Cecily, the club president, is appointing members to the fundraising committee, but she has resolved that she will not appoint anyone without his or her explicit consent. Steve tells Cecily, 'I will not consent to appointment on that committee unless I know whether JoAnne is to be a member of it.' And JoAnne says, 'I will not consent to be a member of that committee unless I know whether Steve will be appointed to it.'

If all three of these people stick by these resolutions, then:

A) Neither of them can be appointed to the committee.

B) The situation described in the scenario cannot arise, because it is inherently incoherent.

C) They must either both be appointed or both be left out.

D) The committee may finally have one of them, both of them, or neither of them as members.

E) Either one of them can be appointed, but not both.

please explain

looks E to me.

Cecily will tell both of them of the others decision and eventually one of them might join depending on the others response.

Differently, my answer is C

First, it is not E because it can't be only one of them appointed. They all say that the will accept only if the other accept. Similarly, it can't be D

It is not A because they don't talk with each other but Celia may tell each of the other's opinion.

B seems not to concern.

If Celia tells other, both of them accept and are appointed. If Celia doesn't tell, they won't accept and be accepted.

please explain

I vote D for following reasons..

Joanne and Steve only want to know whether the other person is appointed or no.. This doesn't mean that they will choose to be appointed only if other isn't appointed..

Anyone agrees ??
