"Analytical Reasoning questions are designed to assess the ability to consider a group of facts and rules, and, given those facts and rules, determine what could or must be true. The specific scenarios associated with these questions are usually unrelated to law, since they are intended to be accessible to a wide range of test takers. However, the skills tested parallel those involved in determining what could or must be the case given a set of regulations, the terms of a contract, or the facts of a legal case in relation to the law. In Analytical Reasoning questions, you are asked to reason deductively from a set of statements and rules or principles that describe relationships among persons, things, or events."
That MENSA brainteaser you posted doesn't really match the above. Of course, LSAC can change their format at any time, but one would hope that they would announce if they make such a drastic change in their test.
The symbols represent facts, multiple symbols represent groups of facts, and the pattern in the teaser gives rules by which one must determine what is true and untrue. The only thing LSAC announces is that you must not talk about L...ack ack ackk
