Question Type, Please help.

Postby jongbargas » Sat Jul 16, 2011 4:36 pm

1. The relationship of Ping's response to Winston's argument is that Ping's response....

2. The reasoning that leads to the conclusion that the first sentence in the passage is false is flawed because the argument...

All,

Thank you in advance for helping me identify these difficult question stems.

1. Method of Argument
2. Flaw

(I may not have these right, but a lot of the times, I just figure out what they want and don't dwell on question types)

Thanks guys!

G-The reason I want to identify them is to see what I am having the most difficulty with. Your skills are probably better than mine when it comes to looking at a question and really understanding what it wants. Don't know if that makes much sense to you. My logic is that if I can identify my issue(s), I can go back at dissect it in my LR bible and hope for a better result in the next practice test.

I understand your reasoning and advocate what you're doing. Granted, yes, some questions belong to certain family types that require distinct forms of attack. I was just pointing out that sometimes, given the time pressure, as long as you know where the writer's going with it/family it comes from, that's enough to get the question correct.

Damn, good point! So, for example, if the question stems from the first family- any type of answer choice that goes against the arrow will be incorrect? If I read your post correctly, I can identify the family to which the question belongs, I will be able to attack the answer choices with greater success. In addition, could I possibly be able to make a better selection of my contender choices following my understanding? Last questions, promise. :)

Haha, totally fine. Questions are allowed on a forum. I know LRB has divided some of the question types into families, which's great, but it's better if you just mentally divide them yourself, so that you can generate your own system. For me, it isn't a science. Some questions largely require a laser-sharp analysis of the conclusion, while others take a macroscopic approach of the whole argument.
