Q about LSATQA Q types

Postby vuthy » Fri Aug 09, 2013 9:50 pm

Anyone else puzzled by the Q-Type data for LSATQA LR? I've taken 25+ PTs, and it says I've only had 3 sufficient assumption questions. Not that it matters much. Just curious if anyone knows where they categorize SA questions.

This is poppycock, I saw 3 sufficient assumptions q's on pt 61 and one of them was the difficult type where you actually have to diagram the conditional statements.

I think a lot of their categorization of questions and difficulty is self-reported by users.

It sounds like the data must be wrong.

There are actually a lot of Sufficient Assumption questions.

From LSAT 29 to LSAT 38 I counted the following: 29.4.04, 30.4.01, 30.4.15, 31.2.10, 32.1.05, 32.4.04, 33.3.21, 33.3.23, 34.2.10, 34.3.21, 35.1.20, 35.1.22, 35.4.14, 35.4.19, 36.1.18, 36.1.22, 36.1.26, 36.3.12, 37.2.05, 37.4.09, 37.4.20, 38.1.01, 38.4.16

It's easy to spot Sufficient Assumption questions. In Super Prep, in "A Guide to Logical Reasoning Questions" under the heading Assumptions (starting on page 28 in my edition) the LSAC tells you how to tell if a question is a Sufficient Assumption or Necessary Assumption.

There was a recent discussion on the Board about how to tell the difference: Assumptions - Sufficient/Necessary

Sorry -- my post must have been confusing. I know that there have been more than three sufficient assumption questions in my PTs. I was just wondering if anyone had any idea where LSATQA (incorrectly) categorizes them in their Q-Types data.
