Is the LSAT Structured So Questions become more difficult toward the end of the section?

I saw a post on a thread that suggested this. Is this true?

No. Its true for games and RC generally, with the last passage/game always being harder than the first, and most of the time harder than the third. On rare occasion the hardest game has been game two (I'm thinking old jazz/new jazz?)

Its certainly not true for LR. The hardest questions in LR are almost always between 13-18, with easy from 1-10 and generally medium from 10-13/18-25

Normally peaks before the end. LR, hardest questions are normally early 20s, late 20s return to the levels of mid teens. There's been a recent trend of throwing a hard one in about Q8 as well.

Games, the hardest one will normally be third or fourth.

Respectfully disagree. I've broken down each test a dozen times teaching this thing, it's pretty universally accepted that 14-18 are almost always harder than the 20s.
