Studying for the LSAT / Re: can you help diagram this
« on: November 16, 2004, 08:15:48 PM »
After some work I diagramed it like this:

E---> ~B

M---> E

M---> ~B
____________

C: ~M--->S

Missing assumption (S---> B)

so you get E---> ~B
           M---> E
           S---> B
           B---> ~M
          _____________

          ~M---> S

Does this seem right?

The companies that are the prime purchasers of computer software will not buy a software package if the costs of training staff to use it are high, and we know that it is expensive to teach people a software package that demands the memorization of unfamiliar commands. As a result, to be successful, commercial computer software cannot require users to memorize unfamiliar commands.

The conclusion above follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

The answer is C) Commercial computer software will not be successful unless prime purchasers buy it.

Investment Banker: Democracies require free-market capitalist economies, because a more controlled economy is incompatible with complete democracy. But history shows that repressive measures against capitalistic developments are required during the transition from a totalitarian regime to a democracy. Thus, people who bemoan the seemingly anticapitalistic measures certain governments are currently taking are being hasty.

Which one of the following is an assumption required by the investment banker's argument?

A) No current government has reached as complete a state of democracy as it is possible for a government to reach.

B) The more democratic a country is, the less regulated its economy must be.

I am really having trouble with assumptions questions, I could use any advice you have.

Thanks

C) The need for economic stability makes the existence of partially democratic governments more probable than the existence of fully democratic governments.

D) A free-market economy is incompatible with a nondemocratic regime.

E) The nations whose anticapitalistic measures the people in question bemoan had totalitarian regimes in the past.

Can anyone help with this LR question, it is from the June 03 LSAT Section 3 (2nd LR)

People who have doctorates in the liberal arts are interested in improving their intellects. Companies, however, rarely hire people who are not concerned with the financial gain that can be obtained by hard work in the business world. As a result, companies rarely hire people who have doctorates in the liberal arts.

The conclusion of the argument follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

A) Companies would hire people with doctorates in the liberal arts if such people were interested in the money available in the business world.

B) Some people who are interested in the liberal arts do not care about money.

C) The only people not interested in making money in the business world are people who are interested in improving their intellects.

D) People with doctorates in the liberal arts are interested in employment in the business world.

E) Only people not concerned with making money in the business world are interested in improving their intellects.
