Studying for the LSAT / Re: Formal Logic Problem giving me trouble

Totally agree. But I think I would have diagrammed this one regardless. But as a general rule, you should only do something special for a problem if you are forced to.

i agree, i want to diagram to make sure i got the right answer... but interestingly, most of the time, right answers on Formal Logic include inferences with the word "some"

Diagramming has its place here on LSD to facilitate communication. 

I don't know about your analysis of "some" in must be true questions.   ;)


i don't even understand what i wrote; what i meant to say is that when you see answers containing "some", "at least some", you gotta be careful

In the Centerville Botanical Gardens, all tulip trees are older than any maples.  A majority, but not all of the garden's sycamores are older than any of its maples.  All the garden's maples are older than any of its dogwoods.

When you doing LSAT problems you have a tendency to want to employ all the new skills you've learned. Don't. Employ as few skills as you can per question.

Here. There is only one you need really. Diagramming. Take the sentences and play a little simon says.

'All tulip trees are older than any maples' -- T > M

'A majority, but not all of the garden's sycamores are older than any of its maples' -- This means, most are older, some are younger. Use the same lingo we did before. S (most) > M > S (some)

'All the garden's maples are older than any of its dogwoods' -- M > D

T > M
S (most) > M > S (some)
M > D

Now take the like terms and fuse the three.

S(most)> M > S (some)
-------                 -------
  T                          D


Now, the important thing here is to be able to read and understand quickly your diagram. The whole point of the diagram is to pick up new pieces of information that is made obvious through the relationship of the three sentences.



hey that's a nice way of diagramming! where did you learn this from?
