I don't understand why if Lutz's record contains scandal, is negated?

I also, don't understand why answer choice C isn't the correct choice. As I've watched the video on that answer choice several times something is confusing.

I agree with the above question. For option C, It says " Lutz's record contains scandalous items.." Yet, Scandalous is negated. Please help clarify as to why this is

I am in the same boat where I am extremely confused the explanation for answer choice c. Mehran negated sc meanwhile the answer choice did not say to negate c. Please explain.

Any explanation to this? Is it a typo on his part? I am very confused as well.

Also confused, to me "contains scandalous items would be "Sc --> MR" and therefore C couldn't be true? Can someone explain what's going on here?

I just typed this response on another thread. I'm pasting it here too. Hope it helps.

Until I watched the explanation, I totally missed that one too. I hadn't even considered that there were two parallel scenarios: one in which Lutz has a large campaign fund and one in which he doesn't.

If he doesn't have a large campaign fund, then we know that there is the possibility that McConnell will run:

not LCF --> Sc --> MR

but when he does have a large campaing fund (LCF --> FA & not MR), all we know is that McConnell does not run. We don't know whether Lutz has any scandalous items or not, though, because that's not mentioned in that scenario.

Therefore, it's possible that Lutz has a large campaign fund and he has scandalous items. In that case, McConnell still will not run against him. If that is true, then C is possible.

Question #2 makes absolutely no sense to me. I do not understand how we just assume "Not LCF" in answer C of the question since we don't have any S&N Formulas of LCF and SC, or even SRC and SC. The only way I could slightly understand this is if you were to add SRC-->SC. I just seems like not LCF is just assumed in this explanation.

Also I don't understand the explanation of answer D being the correct one. I only understood that it was the correct answer because it is a direct flaw in the contrapositive of SC--> increase W and not MR (which would be NOT increase W or MR--> Not SC) since answer D states that its Not increase W AND MR instead of OR.
