quick question for u guys based on this thread - https://www.manhattanprep.com/lsat/foru ... 16920.html
if the question is asking about the author of b being skeptical about something author a said, would an effective method be to attack it technically by negating the answer choices like ohthatpatrick seems to be doing in this post?? i've never heard of it before but there he is using it!
personally I wouldn't use something like that but that's not to say it's an ineffective technique
for RC most of the wrong answer choices can be eliminated in one of the following ways:
1) The answer choice discusses something that the passage doesn't mention at all
2) The answer choice discusses something that the passage goes against/says is wrong/disagrees with
3) The answer choice is the opposite of what you are looking for (e.g. if the question wants you to choose something the author would agree with, the wrong answer choice would state something the author would disagree with)
2 and 3 are similar and it will just depend on what kind of question it is, but that's the general idea
Take a look at this guy's explanation for that question and you will see how it holds true for Q 26:https://lsathacks.com/explanations/lsat ... sion/q-26/
I'm rusty at lsat stuff but that's more or less the way I did RC (I also did not mark up the passages at all, but I know that it works for a lot of people). You should also be able to at least most of the time reference/point to specific parts of the passage as you are eliminating incorrect answers/choosing the correct one.
