Please help with this question.

Postby lawquestions1 » Thu May 24, 2012 4:11 pm

PT 36 Section 4

Question number 2.

I managed to narrow it down to figs or tangerines. The answer was d, tangerines. But why not figs?

For the condition "If the stand carries watermelons, then it carries figs or tangerines or both" I diagrammed it as:
W --> F + T and W --> F W --> T just to make sure. How would you diagram this condition?

I am having a hard time with grouping questions, I would really appreciate your help.

If the stand does not carry t it carries k.

With just f, there is of course no t, which means it would have to be f and k, not just f

If this is a real LSAT practice question, you need to take it out of the post. TLS doesn't allow posting of LSAT questions.

Mention it by test number, section, question and people will look it up.

Both of the above are true.

Also I would just diagram it W----> F/T. Meaning if Watermelon then F or T everytime. The fact that it can be both does not need to be included because it doesn't have to be both. Diagramming that would be like diagramming all the possible combinations anytime a fruit is included.
