### PT 3 Game 1 Question 4

My initial diagramming reveals that Kate orders swordfish. The correct answer to this question is E) Nat orders porkchops. John orders veal (directly) implies that Nat orders porkchops is a true statement porkchops, John orders porkchops implies Kate orders swordfish is also a true statement.

Does the LSAT in general then only test direct implication or did I diagram wrong and Kate doesn't order swordfish?

Kate's entree is wide open for this question. She can have any of the five, with the exception of veal (first rule).

i'm curious: why did you choose the diners as the base variable and not the meals?

### Re: PT 3 Game 1 Question 4

There are two reasons:
1) We know that each person orders exactly one entree, but we don't know exactly how many people order each type of entree.
2) It makes it easier to visually apply the first rule.
