No, they are all Wittgenstein - afair all from 'Culture and Value' except the
last one which is quoted in Ayer's "Wittgenstein" but the original source of
which I forget (except that it is Wittgenstein, somewhere).

There was no fooling. The question did not say or imply that each of the
options correlated with one quotation. If it might be taken to imply this and
this is fooling then many university level questions should be banned as
fraud along with the phrase "READ THE QUESTION CAREFULLY".
