A literature test with 5 alternatives and only one correct, referring to the birthdate of a famous writer, has the following options: A) XIX century B) XX century C) before 1860 D) after 1830 E) none Well I can see why it's not A B or D, cuz both A and B mean D

XIX is 19 there for A is 19th century. XX is 20 makine B 20th century your assumption that both A and B mean D is incorrect.

Ok, so we have A) XIX century B) XX century C) before 1860 D) after 1830 E) none which is: A) XIX century - 1801-1900 B) XX century - 1901-2000 C) before 1860 D) after 1830 E) none We have to assume only one is right. If we mark A, C and D can be correct as well, so A isn't the right option. If we mark B, D can also be correct, so B can't be the option. We're left with C, D and E. It can't be D because that would mean C is correct. We have C and E now. If C is correct, E is false. If E is correct, all of them are false. Answer book says it's C. I don't really get why

Actually I get the reason why, but E could also be right

Been thinking about this and have come to the conclusion that A = C and D because C and C are in the 19th century. Only suggestion I can come up with is to Google search for writers born in the time periods given and see what you get. Sorry if this implodes your brain. LOL

I don't think it has anything to do with a real birthdate, it's just logic. Yeah, it kinda implodes my braind... Anyway, thank you.
