Studying for the LSAT / Re: Prep test 25 - question 18 sectioin IV

We're told in the argument, that a nervous system is necessary for experiencing pain, so that is not an assumption (an unstated premise) on which the argument depends.

In the passage, we're told that we cannot mistreat plants. The reason why we cannot mistreat plants is because plants do not experience pain.

Let's say there were organisms that did not experience pain, but still could be mistreated. (The negation of choice "D")  If there were organisms that did not experience plain but still could be mistreated, then it's no longer true that we can not mistreat plants simply because they do not experience pain. (The conclusion of the  passage). A plant might be an organism that does not experience pain, but could still be mistreated.

In other words, for it to be true that we cannot mistreat plants simply because they do not experience pain, it also must be true that only organisms that experience pain can be mistreated.

so you can use the assumption negation technique on the AC's for justify questions? how would it be applied- the same way as assumption questions? you just look for the AC  negated that would destroy the concl?

I was wondering if the RC Bible advises to read the question stems before the passage. Can someone help me with this? 

i doubt it. i took the power score full length course and they specifically said NOT to read the stems first because it would be a waste of time. they did however say that if youre running out of time that AFTER reading the passage to quickly skim the questions for the easier types:

1. authors tone
2. main point
3. key word reference questions
