Example 4

Because A and B are reversals of the same "some" statement and only one statement cannot be true, can we safely and immediately eliminate both of these options in such a scenario since one being false would make the other false?

@Darron, maybe I can help.

(A) and (B) are not reversals of the same some statement, but (A) and (E) are. Is that what you meant?

If so, yes. Some statements are reversible, so the statement has equal validity and meaning whichever way it is written. Since we are only looking for one answer that does not have to be true, we can automatically eliminate these two answer choices because the statements they make are synonymous. Therefore, it would be impossible to choose just one as the answer.

Does that make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions and best of luck with your studies!
