Logic Game rule Help

Postby theleastdiverse » Tue Dec 02, 2014 10:10 pm

Hey guys,

I've been prepping a ton for this december exam but theres consistently one type of rule that trips me up.

Idk if I'm over thinking it or what, but the solutions don't make sense based on my interpretation.

Best example.

PT 66 ... Section 3... Game 4.

The rule in question: Exactly two of the traditional pieces are performed consecutively.

Wouldn't this imply that you couldn't have three traditional pieces in a row? Because then more then two would be performed consecutively? This is how I interpretted the rule and it yielded me unable to answer some questions.

There are similar rules on other games that throw me off.

Thanks for your help!

Correct - you can only have two "traditionals" in a row. In this case, since one is in slot 3, that means the TT's can either go 2-3 or 3-4.

When in doubt, watch the 7sage video. He explains this at 3:30 http://7sage.com/lsat_explanations/lsat ... -3-game-4/

I don't think that rule could be implied to have three traditionals in a row. You could have more than 2 traditional pieces, for example, 3 traditional pieces but exactly two of the traditional must be consecutive.

Thank you for your replies! The 7sage video really cleared everything up... I can't believe that resource has been out there this whole time and I haven't been using it :shock:
