Studying for the LSAT / Re: LR section

I cant remember exactly but the meteor question had to do with the probability of it happenning just because it happened 100,000 years ago - it was an invalid argument.

Yes, the answer I selected had the word frequency in it.  Essentially it said that its using average frequency to make a specific prediction.  I was pretty sure about that.

i agree

I think the administrators + small details was wrong only because that is really one facet of the overall inference, which was that they weren't maximizing efficiency.

uh..... your supposed to do that. most stronlgy supported = logically inferred = must be true = doesn't matter whether it's this facet or that facet as long as it must be true

re. decentralizatin-inference Q

i meant number three.. answer was baout small details for sure.
maximizing efficiency was a trap because decentralization is sufficient but by no means necessary to maximize efficiency/productivity or whatever(given what was said in the stim)

I think the answer for the decentralization question had something to do with the section leader always being innovative or something like that.

re. decentralizatin question. it was an inference Q correct? i strongly believe the answer was about someone in the central administration works gets daily sh*t from periphery or something

EDIT: i meant number three.. 3 details for sure.
maximizing efficiency was a trap because decentralization is sufficient but by no means necessary (given what was said in the stim)

here's one that i thought was kinda tricky
it was one of those what role does the statemnet play... it was about wheat or some crop... conclusion was that there is going to be a food shortage...... because one wheat farms are operating at maximum efficiency (this was a premise for what i thought was a sub-conclusion ... i cant remember the short sentence) and two population growth.

it was either "subconclusion" or "a phenomenon, the casual argument of which is the conclusion" or something

but wasn't that the point they disagreed about, b/c the one guy said ALL govt's don't benefit artists, but the girl said in democratic govt's they encourage artists to speak against the govt, and so thats the piont they disagreed about.  they didn't disagree whether govt was made up of society's values.  the democratic govt has the values of questioning the govt or something.

tell me if i'm off.

your right. the answer that i thought i chose wasn't that one. memory distortion.... are you sure the first dude said "all" governments? i distinctly remmeber concluding that that Answer choice was a trap tho, the one ur supporting

Anyone remember the LR question about computers?  It was something about how it is difficult to add accessories due to the complexity of setting the jumpers and switches.  It was a weaken question i think.

I narrowed the choices to (1) the manuals supplied by the mfg give instructions re the jumper settings, or (2) computers already come with the accessories and offer free installation.

agree with matt.
for sur 100% abt this one

Lets see what i can remember...these are answers that might jog your memory

a) Supervisor has no one checking on her (last question of a LR) (b)
b) assume that extrinsic features cant be objectively analyzed
c) CC40 hormone kills insects which help fruit trees out
d) marine animals fossilize in sediment better
e) faculty prof salaries have gone up over 4 years
f) 100's of years ago there were cascades on the moon before there were telescopes (tricky one)
g) Gives good reason to change the social? policy? (this one had a real cushy answer for b), and this was  answer c, i cant remember well enough ugh

Any others?

Matt
