LSAT Test #2, Section 3, Question 16

Postby LSATQuestion Account » Tue Sep 25, 2012 3:07 pm

I have a lot of time to prep for the LSAT as I don't plan on taking it until February/June. So im trying to make my way through all of the tests.

Is this a bad strategy? I've noticed that wording of question from the early tests are much different than the later tests.

I took test #2 today and didn't like how question 2.3.16 was phrased and the answer that went with it.

The question asks for a must be true while the answers are all can be true type answers.


Going through the answers you realize that 4 out of the 5 are false so you come to the correct answer that way

Huh?

The incorrect answers aren't so much about falsity as they are about COULD BE TRUE/COULD BE FALSE. With inference questions, we must look for the answer choice that can without a doubt be proven by the stimulus/statement.

Answer choice E does this.

The answer to this question was B....

This was also a games question.

Sorry, my sections are numbered differently.

I agree with you on the wording of "can", but I guess in this particular question a could be true answer was in fact the correct one. The remaining answers choices are eliminated on the basis of not being possible, ever.
