I am surprised after seeing the answer.

Isn't option 'E' says that aside from Marx, who is a philosopher, all other Germans are idealist. We want an option that says 'All other German Philosophers are idealists'. Is there any gap in my understanding?


You are absolutely correct. The word philosophers is missing from choice E, but should be there in the original question. That is why this question has people freaking out.

From which of the following can the statement above be most properly inferred?

A. Except for Marx, if someone is an idealist philosopher, then he or she is German.

B. Marx is the only non-German philosopher who is an idealist.

C. If a German is an idealist, then he or she is a philosopher, as long as he or she is not Marx.

D. Marx is not an idealist German philosopher.

E. Aside from the philosopher Marx, if someone is a German philosopher, then he or she is an idealist.


Question is stated wrong... Choice E should say: E) Aside from the philosopher Marx, if someone is a German philosopher, then he or she is an idealist.

Can you fix this Bunuel ?

Dear rishit1080,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

There was a report on this post, so I fixed choice (E). The word "philosopher" was missing from choice (E), which made it seem nonsensical as an OA. Now, the question has been corrected.

My friend, just FYI, to the best of my knowledge, the genius Bunuel spends all is time in the Quant forum. I don't think I have ever seen him active in the Verbal forum.

Also, I will just add, gratuitously, I think this is not a high quality CR question at all. It is not even remotely GMAT-like. It is a little more like an LSAT Logical Reasoning question in its general format, although it is far to easy for the LSAT.

Mike :-)

All German philosphers, except for Marx, are idealists.

From which of the following can the statement above be most properly inferred?

A. Except for Marx, if someone is an idealist philosopher, then he or she is German.
Marx is german

B. Marx is the only non-German philosopher who is an idealist.
Marx is a german

C. If a German is an idealist, then he or she is a philosopher, as long as he or she is not Marx.
a non pilosopher person may also be an idealist.

D. Marx is not an idealist German philosopher.
This choice does not make marx uniq ,

E. Aside from the philosopher Marx, if someone is a German philosopher, then he or she is an idealist.
Correct answer

For all friends who think that choice E is missing the word 'philosopher'... Pls realize that the correct answer choice has to be the precursor of the question prompt. In other words the prompt should be the inference of the answer choice :) This is a great Q, though a bit unusual. Pls refer the figure.. hope it helps you :)

why D is wrong?
E is correct no doubt. But D is also right.


Marx = is not idealist German philosopher.
He may belong to German group but he doesn't belong to idealist group. so this statement is clearly wrong as per venn diagram.
