If the correct answer is a "most" statement, is it also correct to say that an inherent inference is a "some" statement?

The answer to #1, for example, is listed as A-most->C, but is it also correct to say C<-some->A?

Hi forumuser,

You are correct that most reverses into a some.

If most dogs are fluffy, we know that we have at least one fluffy thing that is a dog. We don't know about the proportion of fluffy things that are dogs, so we can't reverse that most into a most. But since we know there is at least one fluffy dog, it would be correct to say that some fluffy things are dogs.

Hope that helps!
