The use of the word "many"

Postby man_utd_4l » Mon Oct 03, 2011 11:15 am

For those of you using the Manhattan Logical Reasoning Strategy Guide, I have a question regarding the chapter on conditional reasoning. In the section that goes over the use of "Some" and "Most" the guide says that "many" is equivalent to "some" (one or more). Is this correct, or is it a misprint? The reason I ask is because of question #4 of the "Drill IT" section that follows (page #363). The question is the one about dogs, and I read it as the following:

Some A's are B's and some A's are C's, which makes it a some + some overlap meaning that no inference can be drawn for the relationship between B and C.

I'm I reading this problem wrong? I can't see why (B) is the correct answer for this problem. I know it is a small thing, but I want to make sure I have it down. Your help would greatly appreciated!
