LR Red Herrings

Postby FlanSolo » Mon Oct 11, 2010 11:41 am

...on rule of law. Everyone keeps mentioning a red herring answer, I don't remember the question well enough to figure out what I selected. I diagrammed the question and since I was running low on time (after skipping ahead to 26 and answering confidently) connected the two items that had no connection. I'm slowing beginning to suspect this was the red herring. Sound right?

this is what I did too, but it seems a lot of people don't fully remember the question so no one has come to a consensus.

One of the premises was totally irrelevant. It had nothing to do with the missing assumption at all, and was obviously put there to throw us off. Once you realized that, the answer was as clear as day. I diagrammed at first, but that seemed to only throw me off more.

When I first read the question, the answer jumped out at me. But when I began thinking about it more, I confused myself. In the end, after going back, the answer my gut told me was right was actually right. The extra information made it tricky, but once you ignored it it was actually one of the easiest ones on the test.

The conclusion was at the beginning and the following premises did not fully support the conclusion which had two gaps in it. Once diagrammed, only one answer connect the two gaps and it was...lol

Edit: to add "fully"

You know what's funny? I got that question immediately because I was too lazy by the end of the test to read the entire stimulus...I know, how bad is that :P but it actually helped tremendously because I didnt have to keep that extra crap in my head. So yes...definately half the question was there to through us off because I definately answered correctly only knowing half the stimulus

Thanks, I'm hopeful. Truth be told, my memory of the test isn't clear enough to feel confident about any of these difficult questions which people are now rehashing in such a painfully oblique fashion that I'm not second guessing virtually every question.

Ok, i'm hoping I got this right too. I can't remember but this one and the car park one are the only two i'm worried about that we have been talking about.
