Thanks guys

One more thing..

If V1 --->  W2

the contrapositive is:

NOT W2 --->  NOT V1

Which means

If  W1 ---> V2

Right?  So in this case, they actually can't be together, while in the other case, technically they could?

##### Studying for the LSAT / June 1996 3rd Game Question 13
« on: August 31, 2005, 04:48:13 PM »
Hi!  Help!  I'm totally confused by something.  The third game on the June 96 test is as follows:

Each of two boats, boat 1 and boat 2, will be assigned exactly four people.  Exactly eight people, three adults - F, G, and H - and five children - V, W, X, Y, and Z - must be assigned to the boats according to the following conditions:

Each boat is assigned at least one adult.
If F is assigned to boat 2, G is assigned to boat 2.
If V is assigned to boat 1, W is assigned to boat 2.
X and Z are assigned to different boats.

Now.. question 13 states, "Which one of the following is an acceptable assignment of people to boat 1?

A) F, G, H, X
B) F, H, W, Y
C) F, H, Y, Z
D) F, V, W, X
E) G, H, X, Y

Using the contrapositive of rule 2 (F2 --> G2), you get F1 --> G1 according to the Logic Games Bible description of the way to use a "two value system". (page 110)  Yet the test answer is C in which F and G are not in the same boat.  According to the LGB, this should be wrong.  Any help??

Thanks!!

##### Studying for the LSAT / stupid conditional rules again
« on: July 26, 2005, 04:52:00 PM »
Ok people.. I need help.

R is not scheduled for Thursday unless L is scheduled for Monday.

So, if L IS scheduled for Monday, is R not scheduled for Thursday?  One of the answers was "R is scheduled for Thursday."  which I erroneously chose.  The LGB explanation for why this is not the case is that this selection "reverses" the rule.  I asked about this sort of thing before and thought I had it figured out, but I guess not.

thanks

Practice is helping.  Don't ya wish there was an easier way?

How often did you guys practice?  Couple of hours a week?  A day? How many months in advance?

Congrats on the lack of errors!  From what I hear about the game section on June's test, it was pretty easy.. this makes me nervous for October.  Hope they don't overcompensate.

Well.. I for one can say that initially, I had no idea how to even start to diagram a logic game.  No real problems with RC or LR, but LG seemed impossible.  Using the LGB, so far I'm getting more of a handle on it.  I can tell there will be many, many practice tests in my future.  Ask me how I do in October and we'll see if I end up fulfilling your criteria.
