A logical reasoning question

Postby whitespideralex » Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:17 pm

I just started reading the powerscore logical reasoning bible and one question i met today was that in a case study of must be true questions, the book suggests that the word "usually" can be considered equivalent to "most (cases)" in terms of frequency/possibility.

i am a bit hesitant to apply this "=" to all cases, but since English is not my first language i am not sure either.

i'd appreciate if anyone could please advise.

Thanks a lot!

Usually is the functional equivalent of most, so go ahead and apply this. Good luck!
