This might help

Also, as per TLS guidelines you can't copy and paste the entire question and answer choices in your post so edit that out and just leave the PT#Section and Question #

how can D possibly be correct? I think if you just sleep on this you'll wake up and see why its B. As an aside, be wary of D simply because it removes the caveat of "children under 6" and simply states "children," which the question does not really talk about.

Also, TLS mods are gonna kill you for C&Ping that

this is the best explanation:

CristopherG wrote:To summarize succinctly;

(1) Everyone can swim in the pool.
(2) Children under the age of 6 cannot swim in the pool from 12 - closing

lead to conclusions

(i) therefore, if there is a child under the age of 6 in the neighbourhood, the pool must be open before 12. (Answer B) or;
(ii) therefore, if the pool opens at 12, there are no children under the age of 6 in the neighbourhood (contrapositive to answer B)

You should get rid of that quote.
