### quantifiers q

Parallel Flaw questions do not necessarily need to have the same quantifiers along the logical structure of the flawed argument in the correct AC -- correct?

And this does not hold true for Parallel questions where both 1) quantifiers need to line up and 2) the logical structure line up?

Good point. Quantifiers matter in parallel flaw Q's that are centered around a flaw concerning quantifiers. otherwise, not really.

Yep. If the flaw is a logical force one, then the quantifiers matter. If it's not, then they don't.

### Re: quantifiers q

Interestingly, it seems like quantifiers don't matter in parallel questions that have correct answer choices being the contra positive that is parallel in logical structure to a stimuli containing quantifiers. Cause effect parallel structures and cause/effect parallel flaw questions seem to be ones that quantifiers matter least.

I think if it 'sounds right in your head' as you quickly jot down what you think the diagram (C--E, or, A-->B) should be above each AC you'll have better luck/efficiency -- especially for difficult Q's that are more centered around the logical structure. Using quantifiers in correct AC's that differ from the quantifiers used in the stimuli is just one of the tricks LSAC employs, I guess.
