Getting Screwed by politics on Reading Comp PT 30

Postby RaiderBlue17 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 4:05 pm

Ok so i missed a question about slavery and rice being grown pre and post abolishment. The question asked about the author's attitude.

To me, it was simply a passage about one researchers' works and the implications, thus being neutral. I saw ZERO in the passage that would reveal an author's opinoin.

YET, the correct answer was that the author was 'generally receptive' now I DONT want to play the race, game, but can I GENERALLY ASSUME that the LSAT would not allow passages about minorities: Native Americans, African Americans, etc to be negative, and that they will always be a POSITIVE opinion from the authors?

Feedback please.

P.S. this is practice test 30 I'm speaking about

I got this question wrong too (I also thought neutral). However, line 11 "This discovery is especially compelling" I guess would make the author "admiring", and thus answer B.

generally speaking, you can always expect the lsat to be in favor of minorities and the environment. they are fans of the underdog so to speak.

Only one post on the subject is necessary.
