    Some good cooks are gourmet cooks who pride themselves on always using extravagantly rich ingredients in elaborate recipes. Some good cooks can be characterized as fast-food cooks. They may use rich ingredients as long as the recipes are easy to follow and take little time. Other good cooks are health food enthusiasts, who are concerned primarily with the nutritional value of food. But even though not all good cooks are big eaters, they all enjoy preparing and serving food.
    If the information in the passage is true, which one of the following CANNOT be true?
    (A) Most good cooks do not use extravagantly rich ingredients.
    (B) Everyone who enjoys preparing and serving food is a good cook.
    (C) More good cooks who use extravagantly rich ingredients are big eaters than are good cooks who do not use such ingredients.
    (D) There are fewer good cooks who enjoy serving and preparing food than there are good cooks who are big eaters.
    (E) Gourmet cooks, fast-food cooks, and cooks who are health food enthusiasts are all big eaters.

    Is it D?

    B was tempting but can be true. Since the question asks for CANNOT,
    discard B.

    E was another tempting one but I don't think we can make the assumption
    that these 3 are the only 3 categories of good cooks.

    OA please.

    from the question, we can point out the following
    1. But even though not all good cooks are big eaters, ( this means virtually all good cook are big eater)
    2. Good cook enjoy preparing and serving food.
    3. Some good cook preference of ingredients are different. (some use extravagantly rich ingredients, some may use rich ingredients as long as the recipes are easy to follow and take little time and some are concerned primarily with the nutritional value of food.

    from the option given,
    A is satisfied, B is satisfied, E can be considered to be satisfactory,
    C is still very close than our preference to D.
    first statement of D does not go well with our assumption because all good cook enjoy preparing and serving food and not few.

    i will pick option D as the correct anwer
