# Everyone in Biba'S Neighborhood is Permitted to Swim at Barton Pool at Some Time During Each Day that It is Open. - Logical Reasoning

MCQ

Everyone in Biba's neighborhood is permitted to swim at Barton Pool at some time during each day that it is open. No children under the age of 6 are permitted to swim at Barton Pool between noon and 5 P.M. From 5 P.M. until closing, Barton Pool is reserved for adults only.

If all the sentences above are true, then which one of the following must be true?

#### Options

• Few children under the age of 6 live in Biba's neighborhood

• If Biba's next-door neighbor has a child under the age of 6, then Barton Pool is open before noon

• If most children who swim in Barton Pool swim in the afternoon, then the pool is generally less crowded after 5 P.M.

• On days when Barton Pool is open, at least some children swim there in the afternoon

#### Solution

If Biba's next-door neighbor has a child under the age of 6, then Barton Pool is open before noon

Explanation:

According to the argument, that children under six are not allowed from 12 to 5 P.M. and also after 5 P.M., to closing time. This means that they can go to the pool only before noon. Since everyone in the neighborhood is permitted to swim at the pool, if the neighborhood has a child under six, then the pool must be open for him/her before noon. Hence, 'If Biba's next-door neighbor has a child under the age of 6, then Barton Pool is open before noon' is the correct choice.
