Conditional Reasoning, Cause and Effect, Formal Logic, and Numbers and Percentages are just chapters to teach particular skills.

They're not actually unique question-types.

What you've posted so far looks good to me.

Kaplan includes Evaluate the Argument questions in its Strengthen/Weaken chapter in Mastery Practice.

Powerscore includes Role of a Statement in its Method of Reasoning chapter.

You could try to match the formal logic question type from Powerscore with the questions marked FL from Mastery.

This is great, but I just went through my LRB and saw that they also have a Cannot Be True question type; where does that match up in Kaplan?
