How do ya'll approach could be true / could be false questions? In theory I want to be using process of elimination for these. But there are times when I am going through the answers and I see one and say "oh yeah that could be true / is not necessarily true". When I get to these answers I feel torn, should I just circle it and move on, or continue checking through the answers?
Hey Mittens! I noticed that we neglected to address your post from yesterday. Sometimes that can happen when you're the last post on a given page.
To answer your question about approaching CBT/F questions, I would agree with focusing on the process of elimination. To do this effectively, I focus on looking for answers that are necessarily false/true. For instance, if the question asks you to select which answer could be true, instead of trying to identify answers that could be true, try identifying the those that MUST be false (hint: there will be four of them) and eliminating those choices. This leaves you with the correct answer since an answer choice that couldn't be true ipso facto must be false. The reverse is true for questions that ask which answer could be false, start by eliminating the four answers that must be true. (Credit to the LSAT Trainer for the concept)
Although this may seem like it takes longer than identify the "could be [t/f]" first, the elimination process actually takes less time.
