wow, perfect pt-66 rc score in the earlier post.

drilled 65 LR and LG.
65 lr1 -2
65 lr2 -0
65 lg -1

skipping rc drilling for now. this is a retake pt so expected LG to be better but that last game took too long even though I had over 10 mins for it. missed one in g4 and got lucky on the last few questions as i didnt have much time for them.

The correct answer is C. I just cannot see how that's the case. I realized that there can be local codes not present in the national codes, but C says that if something violates a national code, it also violates a local code. So violation of a national code must also violate a local code and therefore cannot be excused in a local court for the same reason it can't be excused in a national court.

That's the reason I went with E. He can simultaneously comply with the local code - which the judge allows for - while violating the the national code.


What we know from the stim is that the def didn't comply with a code. But he shouldn't be penalized because he was confused.

So you want an answer that says " it doesn't matter if you're confused about whether something is national or local because they're they same".
In a sense, you want to establish a link between national and local codes.
E actually creates a seperation. It strengthens the defs. Position because it allows for a difference in codes.


The fact that the def didn't comply is not the main issue, because the judges argument is confusion isn't an excuse. Why is it not an excuse?


I think the key to this problem is to make sure you focus on the conclusion which is actually based on the guys excuse back at the end of the first sentence

Hey, would it be possible to use a spoiler tag or move an individual question to its own thread please? I haven't taken that PT yet and I'd like to keep them as fresh as possible :D

But if no one else is bothered, I will suck it up and survive.
