Cannot Be True questions in Logical Reasoning occasionally feature conditional reasoning (reasoning that uses sufficient and necessary conditions), and some of those questions can appear to be extremely difficult. But, as today’s LSAT Forum Post of the Day shows, these questions often revolve around the same error. The test makers just dress it up a bit differently each time in order to throw off unsuspecting test takers. PowerScore LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible author Dave Killoran describes the basic error in detail, and shows you how the test makers use can make it look very different. As the saying goes, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. Check out Dave’s Forum post, and learn how you can take those pigs to the slaughter.
Here’s a quick preview. Make sure to check out the full thread to read the entire explanation Dave provided to this student:
