Default A is not B and is not C

When you get a clue like

Norbert does not enjoy smoking and is not take benazepril

Obviously you rule out Norbert+smoking and Norbert+benazepril.

Can you rule out the second two things, ie, smoking + benazepril?

Strictly speaking, in English, I would say no, but here in LogicPuzzles.org?

Logically, you can't say anything about B's relation to C. They made be connected or they may not be.
