The correct answer choice is (A)
The first item to attend to is converting the “false” statement in the question stem into terms of “true.” “Must be false” is functionally equivalent to “cannot be true,” and thus this is really a Cannot Be True question.
Proceeding, the condition in the question stem indicates there are only two colors in the costume. Thus, the only applicable scenarios feature the 1-2 fixed distribution (because the 3-1 distribution features three colors in the jacket). Before attacking the answers, quickly scan templates #2 and #3, which feature the 1-2 distribution, and then use those templates to attack the answer choices.
Answer choice (A): This is the correct answer choice. None of the solutions in templates #2 and #3 contain green as a color, and thus it cannot be true that green is a part of the jacket.
Answer choice (B): This answer choice is incorrect. Template #2 has a red jacket.
Answer choice (C): This answer choice is incorrect. Both templates #2 and #3 allow for red and violet overalls.
Answer choice (D): This answer choice is incorrect. Template #2 allows for red and yellow overalls.
Answer choice (E): This answer choice is incorrect. Template #3 allows for violet and yellow overalls.
