i'm hit and miss on them as well, but i've found they are often conditional statements or based off formal logic, so the answer that must be true is either like an extension of the conditionals or a contrapositive of an inference. Or it tests how well you know formal logic relationships. I tend to get thumped on these when it presents a lot of statements and forces you to weed out one of them in the answer choices.
someone let me know if i'm right on this or how off i am...you may help me too!
Must be true questions turned around for me when I started thinking about them like logic game questions. In the same way that LG Qs that ask "Which must be true" mean MUST be true, i.e., CANNOT BE FALSE, these questions are asking for what necessarily logically follows from the stimulus. So all of the ACs you read that could be true, or even probably are true, are not right. You need to choose the AC that is by default true, if you accept everything in the stimulus to be true. Don't bring in any logic. Read the stimulus like a robot, compute, and instantly rule out anything that you don't know *has* to be true from the ACs.
Thank you for trying to help, however I still don't understand it. I feel like you have to be focused when you attempt these questions, and despite focusing extensively I still get lost. I don't know what to look for, and everything looks the same. Honestly I can spend up to 5-6 minutes on these questions (per question), and i still get it wrong. I don't know why i don't get it, why its not connecting for me.
I did ten questions today (difficulty level 1). I spent an hour on them; digesting, trying to understand and I still got them wrong.
