Sorry, I meant to ask why A is correct not why B is wrong...

Hi Mayatassi,

B could happen since we could have one russian novel, two french plays, and one or two french novels.

A cannot happen- We are told we have no russian novels and only one play. This means the maximum number of selected works is 4- three french novels and one play. However, the setup tells us we have either 5 or 6 works selected, but in A we could only have at most 4 selected. Therefore, A cannot be the selection.
