From what language does the phrase non sequitur originate, and what does it mean?

A. It comes from Greek, and in English it refers to the school from which someone graduates.
B. It comes from Latin, and in English it refers to something that feels out of place or illogical in a certain context.
C. It comes from Spanish, and in English it refers to someone's mother.
D. It comes from Italian, and in English it refers to someone's mother.

Answer

The answer is B. Latin, and in English it means to refer to something that feels out of place or illogical in a certain context.
The "non-" prefix means not, it is a negative word.
Sequitur refers to the sequence or follows/following.
Originate means the beginning, it's origin.
Therefore it literally means something that does not come from its origin.
More simply put, it can be an answer given to a question that does not at all relate to the question, there is no logical place for that answer or statement to come from what was given.
