Logical Reasoning 3 – The Answer Choice Is The Question
I have heard many students say something like this:
“Now that I understand what the correct answer choice is saying, I understand why it is the answer.”
Many people simply do NOT understand what the answer choice is actually saying.
In order to understand the answer choices to Logical Reasoning questions one must often make inferences.
Most students think that the hardest part of a Logical Reasoning question is understanding the passage or argument. Although this can be true, it is often the answer choices themselves that are the real killer.
LSAT is very clever in the way that it formulates answer choices. Answer choices are often a “built in” test of reading comprehension.
There are two issues with Logical Reasoning answer choices:
First, what are they actually saying (this can often be very tricky; and
Second, how would the truth of the answer choice affect the answer to the question.
In this tutorial we will concentrate on those questions where it is the answer choices themselves that are the problem. If you don’t understand what the correct answer choice is saying, there is no way to get it right.
