A for me!

If A, the B and C

Correct Reference: If Not B or Not C, then not A

The first boldface is evidence that satifies the first condition in the chase, but the second boldface is conclusion that is a NEGATION of the second condition in the chase. So that conclusion "could not be drawn from all evidence that the argument contains".

To be accepted as a member at the Brown Country Club, one must not have any connections to the entertainment industry.

Robert Chase, the publishing magnate, has not financed any Hollywood movies, so he must be accepted as a member at the Brown Country Club.

Chase has not financed any hollywood movies, from this, can it be said conclusively that Chase doesn't has any connection with entertainment industry, Is financing hollywood movies the only connection one can have with entertainment industry?
Nah! I dont think so. A is my asnwer.

my main problem with this question is : has not financed any Hollywood movies
should there be 'any movies' or any movie? pla explain.

I'll go for C The first part Robert Chase, the publishing magnate, has a net worth of 5 billion dollars and chase has not financed any Hollywood movies Is one fact of two that argument includes and the second part he must be accepted as a member at the Brown Country Club. is the conclusion that can be drawn from this passage.

I guess A is correct.

The second part is the conclusion that could not be drawn from all evidence that the argument contains, because Hollywood is a part of the entertainment industry, not an synonym.

Came down to A and D....because the second is the conclusion that cannot be drawn from the first because entertainment is a huge spread and includes much more than movies.

Is the first argument necessary for the argument to stand? No its just states the evidence in support of the argument. It tells us the criteria to be a member.
