Did anyone miss this question?

Postby Longhorn88 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 10:45 pm

Scientist: a recent study shows that applicants to law school who take the law school admissions test proceed to engage in heavy consumption of alcohol at a higher rate than a control group of their peers. Also, applicants that do not take the test are no more prone to party than peers who are not applying to law school. Thus, a proclivity to binge drinking drives applicants to take the law school admissions test.

The scientist's argument is flawed in that it:

a) Overlooks the possibility that test takers undergo a through psychological transformation during the test process.

b) Confuses a possible effect for a proximate cause.

c) Fails to consider that the LSAC test makers gleefully sit in a room while writing the test, giggling to themselves.

d) Presumes, without providing proper justification, that logic games include enough space to work so that test takes are not driven to drink.

e) All of the above.
