REASONING

Look at the sample problem below. First read the list of facts. Then look at
the conclusion. From the facts, you can tell that some of the conclusions are
definitely true and some are definitely false. In other cases, you cannot tell
from the facts whether the conclusion is either true or false. If you decide a
conclusion is definitely true, mark the circle under the T. If it is definitely
false, mark the circle under the F. If the facts do not give enough information
to tell whether a conclusion is definitely false, mark the circle under X.

In the sample below, the first conclusion has been marked F because Ms.
Gaynor works part time and all Westmont employees work full time. The
second conclusion has been marked X because there is no information given
in the facts to know definitely where Ms. Gaynor works. Because Ms. Gaynor
works part time, it is possible that she works for Northern Lumber Company.
Is is also possible that she works for another company.
Now mark the third conclusion by yourself.

Facts:

Ms Gaynor is a part-time employee.
All Westmont Company Employees work fulltime.
