Someone responded to me that for it to be an analogy there has to be a "like, such as, etc" in the sentence. This makes perfect sense to me (and is a very simple way to determine the difference).
Cromartie - I do the same thing with RC, also usually finish with time to spare. However the passage about common law killed me (I actually liked the strawberry mites, lol). How the hell did you get #14? That was the only one I missed and its drivin me nuts.
Yeah, the common law passage was pretty tough too, it was actually what initially caused me to fall behind time-wise. If not for the fact that the comparative reading passage was a complete giveaway that I just breezed through, I would have run out of time on the strawberry mites passage for sure.
I got no. 14 purely by POE, which is how I get all my answers for LR and RC. At first, I ended up crossing out all 5 answer choices, so I had to go through the choices again. For A, I didn't see the paradox immediately, but I saw how the "new view" part fit in with the last paragraph of the passage. For B, there really isn't any chronology given in the passage. The passage doesn't talk about any influential theorist either, it only talks about the views of a legal historian; so C was out. The passage does not contrast legal theories of the past with those of today, so D was out. It doesn't advocate a traditional school of thought (if anything, it criticizes it) and criticize a new trend either (what new trend?), so E was out. That left me with A. Then, I recognized that the last sentence of the first paragraph and the first sentence of second paragraph does in fact describe a paradox. Even if I hadn't recognized the paradox, I would've gone with A anyway, since it was the "least wrong" of all the choices.
I cannot even keep track of the number of times when I get the right answer, not because I understood it to be right, but because I found all the other answers to be more wrong. Of course, this approach does backfire on me sometimes, but very rarely (see my explanation for LR 2 no. 9 in my previous post).
