Logic Challenge #32 - The Graduation Game (Easy/Hard)

Postby Manhattan LSAT Noah » Mon Jun 13, 2011 4:58 pm

We've just posted a couple of games- an easy and hard version of a game - to explore how the LSAT adds twists. It's not a real LSAT game, and folks should rely on real ones for their main practice, but LSAT-adultery now and then won't kill you....

Have fun, and feel free to write an explanation, or submit answers to enter the contest.

Got 7/7 but one thing:

If a year can be left empty (as in no one graduates that year) (which certainly seems possible in Q6), then Q2 might be wrong. (R can be 2001,2005 or 2006)

If not, this might need to be clearly included in the rules section. (At least one student graduates each year) (Earliest 2001 etc. line kinda does the same job, but meh)

Can you post the answers? I did the problem but I can't access the answers.

I'd rather not spoil the fun for other folks, (also, it is a contest - though obviously if one wants to be a jerk, they can "game" the system). So, I can pm those to you.

But, do you mind telling me a bit more about being unable to submit answers? If you're logged in as a user, you should be able to have your answers checked, etc. I want to make sure there's no tech issue.

I think there's an error in your reasoning there - try looking at it one more time.

I love "meh"! That's my grandma Rosie boiled down to one word!

Anyway, I think you read it correctly. We debated how explicit to make this, and decided the way it is presents a good challenge.

Nice work on the 7/7 - only 33% of those who tried nailed it.
