Hi @Samir-Ghani Maybe I can help.

My understanding of "not all" statements is that they can be diagrammed as "some" statements. In the case of the stimulus, the "not all" statement can be diagrammed as follow: KOAA - some - not moral actions. And in the case of the correct answer choice, E, texts- some - not books.

Hope this helps.
