I don't think I can post the question, but I realized that this test is luckily a free pdf online so here's the link for the test.

This is one of those slightly awkward LRs which there are fewer of in newer tests. The stim says criminals are not responsible for their actions because all actions are simply a product of the environment of the actor. It then turns around and says the actions of the majority cause the environment so they are responsible. At this point lights should be flashing in your head because his first premise basically stated that no one is responsible for his actions. So, how can the majority now be responsible for their actions?

That is how it contradicts its own principle.
