Studying for the LSAT / Please explain...
« on: September 23, 2005, 07:08:20 AM »
From one of the games... Don't quite understand the following statement...

"At least as many French novels as Russian novels are selected" 

Does it mean there should be same # of FN and RN?
Let say if FN=3, can RN=2? or FN=2, RN=3?

Thanks,

1. If yews are not in the park, then either laurels or oaks, but not both, are in the park.

2. If it is not the case that the park contains both laurels and oaks, then it contains firs and spruces.
