Using diagrams and arrows for Pseudo Sufficient Assumptions

Postby itachiuchiha » Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:24 pm

Do most of you use diagrams and conditional logic for most of your sufficient assumption and pseudo sufficient assumption questions?

I think it helps sometimes when determining what the gap is between premise and conclusion. But I feel that occasionally, diagrams are useless.

What do y'all think?

I didn't use to, but as I've been reviewing answers on Manhattan's website, it seems like everyone does it. I usually don't need to for the easier questions, but it makes the harder ones a lot easier to figure out.

If you have any questions about it, this thread really helped me out: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=202829

They're never useless* - they might just not be necessary for certain people to see the jump in logic. I still recommend writing them out every time - it will help with the ones that seem easier than they actually are.

*Well, they will be useless in a question that doesn't have conditional language.

Also, what's a pseudo-sufficient assumption question?
