Problem 10

Given the following six statements: \[\text{(1) All women are good drivers}\] \[\text{(2) Some women are good drivers}\] \[\text{(3) No men are good drivers}\] \[\text{(4) All men are bad drivers}\] \[\text{(5) At least one man is a bad driver}\] \[\text{(6) All men are good drivers.}\]

The statement that negates statement $(6)$ is:

$\textbf{(A) }(1)\qquad \textbf{(B) }(2)\qquad \textbf{(C) }(3)\qquad \textbf{(D) }(4)\qquad \textbf{(E) }(5)$


We can obviously see that statement $3$ contradicts statement $6$ since it says that all men are not good drivers while statement $6$ says they are. So the answer is $\boxed{C}$
