## Problem

Which of the following methods of proving a geometric figure a locus is not correct?

$\textbf{(A)}\ \text{Every point of the locus satisfies the conditions and every point not on the locus does}\\ \text{not satisfy the conditions.}$ $\textbf{(B)}\ \text{Every point not satisfying the conditions is not on the locus and every point on the locus}\\ \text{does satisfy the conditions.}$ $\textbf{(C)}\ \text{Every point satisfying the conditions is on the locus and every point on the locus satisfies}\\ \text{the conditions.}$ $\textbf{(D)}\ \text{Every point not on the locus does not satisfy the conditions and every point not satisfying}\\ \text{the conditions is not on the locus.}$ $\textbf{(E)}\ \text{Every point satisfying the conditions is on the locus and every point not satisfying the} \\ \text{conditions is not on the locus.}$

## Solution

Statement $\boxed{\textbf{(B)}}$ is wrong because it does not imply that all points that satisfy the conditions are on the locus.
