Today’s LSAT Forum Post of the Day is a response to a student with two common questions regarding conditional reasoning statements containing negative language, like the words “unless” or “without”: (1) how are those specific phrases best diagrammed, and (2) when is it possible to diagram negatively-worded statements in the affirmative? PowerScore VP of Development Jon Denning addresses both of these questions and more in the exchange that follows!
Here’s a quick preview. Make sure to check out the full thread to read the entire explanation Jon provided to this student:
