I picked C and that was mostly a guess. I see the gap on the logic much more clearly now that you explained it, but also the phrase "sensory quality" tripped me up in the answer choices. I thought "what does a sensory quality have to do with distinguishing languages?" But since I didn't fully see the gap, that answer choice especially made little sense to me.
Thank you for that response. It was very helpful.
Yea (C) would be a little bit more like (though not actually) a necessary assumption question with the way that it is phrased. The "sensory quality" thing is a little tripping BUT remember that SA questions can be a little bit more broad because they make the conclusion 100% follow. Don't just word match. For example...
Yale professors worked really hard
Yale professors will get a raise this year
A correct answer could look like "Everyone involved in an academic setting who either works hard or does copious amounts of research will get a raise this year, even if that raise is fairly small."
This is a crazy answer that would probably be too crazy for the LSAt but you see my point. There is a lot going on in that answer BUT it still satisfies the premise and makes the conclusion necessarily follow. We know that the Yale professors worked hard. From the SA answer choice, we know that anyone who works hard (or does copious amounts of research) AND is in the academic setting (which includes Yale professors) will get a raise this year.
