When you are stuck between 2 choices its time to really think. Dont find whats right between the choices... there will be plenty right about them. Instead find whats wrong with one of them, maybe its extreme or mentions something not alluded to in the stimulus. If that fails and rereading the stimulus is not an option choose the second one unless it is choice E. So if you are stuck between C and D, choose D. If you are stuck between C and E, choose C. LSAC usually puts a very good wrong answer choice last. You will read it and think thats the best answer ive heard thats got to be it. Very serpentine but effective, most people fall for it. They also put two wrong answer choices next to each other. And statistically speaking the second answer is usually correct because they are hoping you will just grab the first one and move on. Remember the LSAT is an exclusionary tool. Getting a good grade wont get you a seat at school, but getting a bad grade will pretty much guarantee you wont get a seat at all.
