wow i wish that had been on my test. i like monkeys. but i fear that was experimental...

I had experimental and don't remember it.

I do, however, remember the shopping list question and am pretty confident the "overbuying" option was correct. I don't remember it stipulating that the number of items was the same. How would that lead ANYONE to pick the "overbuying" option, and to remember they picked it and argue staunchly for it? It wouldn't.

But beyond there not being a similar number of items stipulated to, the sale choice JUST PLAIN SUCKS.

The sale items were the most expensive items to begin with?!?!?!?!?!

What's the difference between a candy bar that was originally 85 cents and another one that was orginially 4,865,375 dollars if they are both being sold NOW for 5 cents?

I don't understand some people.

dudes-- it was worded trickily. i, along with everyone else who saw that wording, had to go back to check it and caught it only before we were able to knock the unnecessary items option. i had been debating between the two, and when i saw that wording, i knew which one was correct. as i've said before, what does "comparable items" even mean? they are the same quality? the same price? also, what difference does the amount of unncessary items have to do with anything? as i've said before, the non-listers could have bought *all* unnecessary stuff, and if you concede that the prices were low, still could have spent less. by saying that the most expensive stuff is the stuff on sale to begin with, it states that even though the items are on sale, they could indeed cost more than usual-- hence, spending more.

exactly my thinking.  I was about to choose the one with unnecessary items, and then went back and re-read the stimulus and noticed the "comparable items" and changed my answer.  I remember that very well.

We can't know someone's intentions, so we can judge morality only based on consequences of actions *ASSUMPTION*

A: Knowing intentions is indespensible to moral judgement

Was this the correct wording, or was there more to the stimulus? Anybody remember any other options?

I understand that it's been a while since the test.

Wording seems almost verbatum from the test. It seemed likt eh correct answer choice when I picked it, so I sure hope it was!

I just wanted to note that, although the wording on many of these was unclear, this Post Mortem was essentially 100% accurate, even on the most debated questions.

A big thanks to everyone who offerred input and helped figure out 49 TCRs. Good luck to the loser who takes care of the LR PM for December 06.

(The missing question, I believe, was #14 on one of the sections, with "polemic government" mentioned somewhere. I may be wrong. I haven't taken the time to really go through all of this again.)
