All any reporter knows about the accident is what the press agent has said. Therefore, if the press agent told every reporter everything about the accident, then no reporter knows any more about it than any other reporter. If no reporter knows any more about the accident than any other reporter, then no reporter can scoop all of the other reporters. However, the press agent did not tell every reporter everything about the accident. It follows that some reporter can scoop all of the other reporters.
Up until line 7 EVERYBODY has been told EVERYTHING. But then it changes. PA didnt tell EVERY reporter EVERYTHING literally meaning there was NO ONE that knew EVERYTHING. EVERY, ALL, NONE, EVERYTHING are used in the literal sense. When it says that the press agent didnt tell every reporter everything it means exactly that not that he told some everything and some less.
I narrowed it down to A and E.
A) The press agent did not tell everything about the accident to any reporter.
E) No reporter knows any more about the accident than any other reporter.
E wins out (to me) because of the it applies to the conclusion better than A. The conclusion deals with the a reporter scooping other reporters. Answer A concerns the press agent, E reporters.
But then again, I am battling to stay above 160 so what do I know!!! Anyone agree or disagree?
