Preptest 16 game #1

Postby winnatech » Mon May 24, 2010 7:43 pm

Can anyone give me the setup for this game? I can't really figure out the answers without making tons of hypotheticals. Thanks.

it's a pretty straightforward setup -- there aren't any major deductions to make, so sketch it quickly and get on to the questions! For a couple of the questions, you will have to make a hypothetical or two, but not that many...

I would orient this diagram vertically, with the numbers along the bottom, but it's difficult to type that way, so i've put them on the side.

1 __ __ R
2 __ __ __
~Y 3 __ S

~SY
~WY
~VZ
T1 --> Z1

That's about all you can do up front. You might take a second to consider things and realize that the placements of Y and T are going to be big drivers in the game, and with that in mind, take on the questions!

and looks like someone else (or perhaps you!) posted the same question on our explanations forum: http://www.atlaslsat.com/forums/section ... -t884.html, you can find a diagram there.

Thanks for this! I think I was wasting too much time trying to complete several possible templates, now knowing that there isn't really many.

Thanks for this link as well, it was very timely. I'm actually not the person who posted that though, but I guess we both had problems with this game! Thanks!
