either/or vs or

Postby kiyoku » Thu Jul 04, 2013 11:09 am

I know that the word or is referring to an inclusive or, for the lsats. But when a question says either a or b, i naturally read it as an exclusive or. Is this right?

its always an inclusive or unless they specifically say "but not both". So if you see "either or" it means "a or b or both"
