I say please respond because I am often ignored in this thread.
Anyway, my process for SA's is typically first of all to find the concl and premise, like all other LR basically, then I look for some sort of leap in the conclusion that is there. Often it will conclude something that involves going back into the premises and having to connect that some how to help it be 100 percent true. I find the answer choices are more often my downfall than finding the gap.
Sometimes its hard to distinguish what makes it 100 percent true from what just makes it very likely.
For example, pt 45, s4, q 22. I have been sitting for a while trying to definitely say why (C) is wrong and (E) is right. They seem to be basically the same answer to me for some reason. I'm looking at Manhattan and my brain honestly cannot comprehend whats happening.
I'm thinking the gap is that if its not played on the radio, they don't believe it will be profitable? But even then, this weird double negative in (E) and my inability to find whats wrong with (C) is super frustrating. This type of issue is unique for me in SA questions.
C is wrong because it still allows for the possibility that there are recordings NOT played on the radio (some of which could be classic jazz recordings) which record companies believe will sell well on CDs.
E eliminates that possibility, which allows the conclusion to be properly drawn.
Ah ok. I think I see it now. This is pretty tricky.. I may have been better off just taking what I saw as the gap and looking for that in the AC's in this case during timed conditions at least, but the double negative found in (E) really screwed me up.
