I know you're focused on the term "many biologists." Remember that this is actually a very weak way of referring to biologists. Two biologists no longer holding this view would be enough. And on line 57, the passage implies that these biologists have accepted the claim that some genes are transmitted horizontally.


Yea, as I was typing my complaint in the OP I realized that many =/= most (or even a large amount), which is how I had interpreted it while reading. I still think it's absurd that many=some in LSAT terms. If my boss asked if many people were at an event, and I said yes, and he showed up and there were two, then he'd be righteously furious.

agreed, but unfortunately the LSAT doesn't like to make things easy, with more than many=some, "or" is a bit easier to grasp but can still be a pain, along with other words

Don't b a fuck tard. Basically you were asking "do u think I should prep for anything they could throw at me or shout I just assume this one thing won't happen bc it hasn't happened in the past?" CHELLO my man have u even been studying? It's just like y even try n predict what may or may not b on the test. Just fucking study n to quote from some other threads "stop reading tea leaves."

The "you misspell words and ignore grammar on an Internet forum" is, and always will be, the dumbest fucking dig possible on an Internet forum.

What's the flaw in the tard gunner's argument ?

I'm just going to leave it up to you to figure that out BJS. But let's not act like I'm either not studying or am on TLS.

I have prepped them, actually. My point was more should i be wasting any time a week out looking them over...I'm the moron and yet one sarcastic post against you and you go into an ad-hom fit of calling me a 'tard.' Maybe look over flaw questions a bit more, Bill. Good luck with life sir. You may score in the 170's next week but your social intelligence appears to be on par with some of my immature middle school students. Sad.

Here's how I think of it - If you said 'many' people to refer to 1,000 attendees at an event, you still are only talking about 'some' people not 'most', where people is the entire human population.
If the total population of objects is very large then you could definitely have a sample of 'many' of the objects that comprises less than half of the population.

Most = >50%
Some = >0%
Many = A number = >0%

Well when preparing I feel like there is no wasting time preparing... even if it's not on, its better be able to tackle it and not be there than be lost and have it appear...

Here's my view on the grammar/diction/spelling on Internet forums: if you're typing on a traditional keyboard, you should obey the general requirements of English. Certainly, there will be mispellings and grammar mistakes. Certainly, there are idioms and acronyms appropriate on an Internet forum that aren't anywhere else. But a forum is nothing like a texting conversation, where the keyboard is limited and the medium is most conducive to rapid exchanges. Typing "n" instead of "and" is questionable at best in a text message, and ludicruous on a forum.

The way we present ourselves is largely how others perceive us. As smcc alluded to earlier, mispellings and grammar mistakes portray you in a certain light regardless the content of your posts.

In any case: the "tard gunner" had a valid point. We have a limited amount of time remaining to the test, so that time should be spent as economically as possible. If we suppose there's a 2% chance of X appearing on the test, we shouldn't spend 20% of our time studying for it.
