Map Out

Hey there, just wondering if you could map this out. It seems like answer choice D is a reversal but I'm not sure if the words as well mean <---> Please advise, thank you!

Thanks for your question, @teddyteddted

"As" well does not serve any logical function.

Let's map:

DC - > PM
not PM - > DC

DC -s- GO
SC -s- DC

GO & DC - > SC
not SC - > not GO or not DC

Answer choice D is wrong because it reverses negating. Remember, to get the contrapositive of a statement we must reverse AND negate.

Hope this helps!

I dont understand your final premise diagram. This is what I have:

DC --> PM
DC -some- GO
GO --> S

solution:
GO - some - DC --> PM (1 &2)
GO some PM
GO --> S (3)
PM some GO --> S
PM some S (answer)
At least some speakers are party members.
