Flyer: Appleseed Books is pleased to announce that our Summer Bookclub and Signing Series will feature six of the best new novels by local authors. Club registration fee includes all books, refreshments at meetings, and admission to each signing event.

Based on the information above, which of the following must be true?


A. Summer Bookclub will be popular among fans of local authors.
B. Most local authors write novels rather than poetry.
C. Book signings will not be held during regular meetings.
D. Only Bookclub members will be admitted to signing events.
E. It must be decided which new novels are the best.


Situation:A bookstore announces the components of its summer book club.

Reasoning: Which option must be true? In order to answer this question correctly, it is necessary to distinguish between information that might or could be true, and information stated directly in the passage. Since the flyer claims the club will read the best new novels, it is reasonable to conclude that someone has decided which novels qualify as the best.
  1. This may or may not be the case.
  2. Genres in which local authors work are not discussed in the passage.
  3. Though the passage lists book signings and meetings as separate items in a series, it does not state that they will be held at different times.
  4. The passage does not make this claim.
  5. If the book club will be reading six of the best new novels, it is reasonable to conclude that some member of the bookstore or reading series staff has made a decision as to what constitutes the best.

Answer: E

I think this is a poor-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate.

Club registration fee includes...admission
This sounds like membership to me. Meanwhile, E looks like a mere re-statement, it's kinda redundant.
Please elaborate more on this question

another poor quality question. this is a must be true question, and we must chose an answer that will be 100% true based on the info presented in the argument.
what if in total, there are only 6 novels?

The book club could decide to use bestseller lists to find the best local authors (this won't be difficult or unlikely if the book club was located in major city).

In this case, "made a decision as to what constitutes the best" is NOT the same as "decided which new novels are the best." You may argue that deciding to use the list is already a decision on what books are the best. However, that would not be correct.

Take a different example of decision: Say that I wanted to find the top countries by GDP. I could "decide" to use the World Bank's list of countries by "GDP, PPP (current international $)" rather than another list. However, that's when the decisioning process ended. Did I "decide" that the Netherlands had a higher GDP than Malaysia? No, that would be a ridiculous statement - deciding to use the list doesn't mean that I decided the individual elements of that list.

Club registration fee includes all books, refreshments at meetings, and admission to each signing event.

If I'm not wrong then , Club registration fee in the above line seems to mean the registration fee to enrol yourself to that club.
The conclusion would then have been, only the registered members of the club are eligible for the signing event.

The word "only" is wrong. The statement implies that the club members are eligible for the signing event. However this does not mean that non-members are not eligible.
