For the unconscious/intelligence one, I think the correct answer was something like "intelligence does not require consciousness." Does anyone remember that specific choice? If that was really a choice, then that one would have to be correct. If intelligence required consciousness, then by proving animals have intelligence, one would have also proven that animals have consciousness.

Here's a nugget, guys...parallel reasoning, something like #21 in one of the real LR sections:

Mathematics and music educations, music develops math skills, not necessarily because a intellectually nurturing home could be the cause of both. I think the correct answer was the kids with difficulty in class that could have undiagnosed hearing problems. The pattern to replicate was that there could be some third factor that influences both of the identified factors. This was probably the toughest LR question on the test. There were several other answer choices that were really attractive. But I think the kids in class one was the only one that hit on the 3rd factor influencing two previously identified ones.

Yeah, but in that case, the reason given only explained the first part, which then caused the poor grades.  The bad hearing isn't causing the bad grades, per se - it's causing the failure to pay attention, which in turn causes the bad grades.  I answered C, but I can't for the life of me remember what that was...

I chose C as well, but the answer slips my mind.

I chose C too it was something about healthy and eating fruits and vegetables yet it said they aren't really causing it, it could just be a correlation.

I think the answer was (A), the one about bad hearing causing poor grades.  Although (C) said there was a correlation, it did not elaborate on a potential cause of the correlation, which was mentioned in the stimulus to the question and thus, also should have been paralleled.

FWIW, I also put A, about the hearing.

argh, that was confusing.  i put that problem-solving or whatever requires intelligence.  but that's probably wrong.  the reason i didn't pick either of the two with both intelligence and consciousness was that one just seemed to be restating the conclusion (consciousness doesn't imply intelligence) and the other was the opposite of the conclusion (i.e. intelligence implies consciousness).  geez, maybe i didn't do that well on this exam after all...

edit: this one was not experimental.  i had two LGs.

i did the exact same thing... there were three answers in the middle that had to do with intelligence and consciousness and i thought there was something wrong with all of them...


from the master list:

7.  Family members not doing things that would harm people they love
Answer: Assume some moral obligations overrule others

19. Humans not being able to evolve with dinosaurs/climate zone
Answer: If they lived in different climate zones

21. Whether computers will replace TVs
Answer: Most people who have computers already have TVs

i don't remember these three at all - can someone describe them in more detail?  maybe they were on the experimental?  i don't remember the one about the professors talking smack either.

I don't remember any of these either - can we get confirmation they're exp.?  If so, I move we remove them from the list...

YES!  I dont' recognize any of these three either.  It might be helpful if ppl who do recognize them could tell us if they had 3 LR sections.

I also do not remember 7,19, and 21 or I got them all wrong.

My order was LR-G-G-LR-RC

so if yours was the same maybe they were experimental

For #7, is that the one about turning in family members to the police?

I didn't have the family/police one but i did have the dinosaur one and the computer/tv one.  i had 3 LR sections so the family/police one must have been exp., and there must have been more than one exp. LR section circulating

I had the exp LR section.

I definitely remember something about a moral dilemma between turning a family member into the police or not, and I really think that's what #7 is referring to.

While on that thought, I also remember a moral dilemma for doctors doing what's best for a patient contrasted with the patient's right to hear everything.

If no one else remembers either of these, they're exp.
