QUESTION TYPE: Must be True
- Member + more than ten ➞ coupon only at your local store.
- Member + fewer than ten ➞ coupon only at the Main Street store.
- Pat has rented less than ten movies and can get a coupon at a local store (Walnut Street, which is not Main Street)
ANALYSIS: Pat rented fewer than ten movies. If Pat were a member, she could only get coupons at the main street store.
Since Pat can get coupons elsewhere, she must not be a member. This is the contrapositive of fact #2 above: Can get coupons elsewhere ➞
Member or ten or more movies.
Since Pat is not a member, we can say “some people” (i.e. Pat, at least) can get a coupon even if they aren’t members. One or more = some. Why can Pat get coupons even if she isn’t a member? Maybe it’s a special promotion to get people to sign up.
- The stimulus never says anything about non-members. Maybe they can get coupons at all stores (as a special promotion, for example).
- We know from the stimulus that Pat is not a member. So we don’t know anything about individual members. Maybe they all rent more than ten movies. The second fact tells us what happens if someone rents fewer than ten movies. But that doesn’t mean anyone actually does.
- We only have Pat’s example, and she isn’t a member. We don’t know about any members.
- CORRECT. If Pat were a member, she would have to get her coupon at Main street, as she’s rented fewer than ten movies. Since she gets her coupon at Walnut street, she must not be a member. And since she can get a coupon, that means at least “some” people can. “Some” can be as few as one.
- Who knows? Pat isn’t a member, so maybe she can get a coupon anywhere. Lots of stores will let you get a discount in exchange for signing up to be a member of their program.
