Extreme Links Page 460, "only those wearing uniforms"

    • September 23, 2016 at 8:39 pm #2745

      “Every student is required to wear a uniform, and only those wearing uniforms are allowed to ride on the bus.”

      In this, “only those wearing uniforms” does it mean only those STUDENTS who wear uniforms”?

      I thought this sentence means: B(us) -> U(niform) & S(tudent). So I thought 2nd answer “Only students ride the bus” is correct because it says: B(us) -> S(tudents) and given S -> U (Every student is required to wear a uniform).

      I hope I was clear on my question. Thank you so much.

      Hi Chen — we don’t have enough information to infer that “those” refers specifically to students — one small hint is that “student” is singular and “those” is plural — in order for the those to refer to students here, we would need some additional text such as “and of those students…” or “only those students who…” —

      HTH and take care — Mike
