Yes, I brought this up peripherally in a couple other threads. It was my 3rd LR section (5th overall), the one with 26 qs.

I don't remember the exact letters of the answer choices, but I'm 100% certain that my final 6 answers on that section were 3 2-in-a-rows of the XX YY ZZ variety (that's just an example, if I actually answered X, Y, or Z for anything, I'm in bigger trouble than I thought.)

what did you guys put for:
chinese mummies/wheel
pangaea
t-rex

also, do you remeber the question right before the mummies (right above) right after the dangerous drivers?

I put:

1)mummies turning up subsequently in different region
2)incomplete computer models (is that the right question? I might be confusing Pangaea with something else)
3)both scavenger and predator (CERTAIN I blew that one)

Sorry, Emolee, don't recall what was between drivers (random samples unrepresentative) and mummies.

I hope I got at least one of those right.

How do you guys remember this stuff? Were you actively committing your answer sheet to memory? I remember some fo my answer choices, but haven't a clue what letters the answer choices were. ???

For mummies, I chose wheels for transportation, but remember regretting it as time ran out (I think mummies in other regions is the right answer, based on logic in other threads, and also it seems to reflect typical LSAT red herring first, real answer next, pattern).

For Pangaea, I put computer models predicting different results (breakups under the oceans only).

For TRex, I selected poor vision.

Can't remember the other Q.

What was the dangerous driver question? (Peak hours answer? I thought that Q was early in the section.)

Also, what was the second dinosaur answer (question about appendages/large and small/typical cold blooded creatures?)

Thanks!

I think the question was trying to determine whether dinosaurs were cold or warm blooded.

wasn't there one in which cold blooded animal bones have a certain characteristic, dinosaur fossils don't therefore dinosaurs are warm blooded - the answer I believe suggested that
over the years this characteristic may have changed - therefore dinosaurs may be
cold blooded afterall...

anyone else remember this?

yes, I think the answer was something about the fossilization process changing the bones

you guys are wrong on this one...
it kept comparing the dinasours to birds and saying that dinasour bones are like birds, so they must be the same...
the assumption is that dinasours are the same as birds...
the way to weaken and cut down the assumption is to say that larger warm blooded animals differ in siginficant ways from smaller cold blooded animals

that's all cool - but birds are reptiles and they are cold blooded.  so if dinosaurs are like birds they would be cold blooded.  on the contrary the question is suggesting that the dinosaurs are warm blooded because a certain something is missing from their bones.

if this chemical (or whatever it is) has changed due to the fossilization process and over the millions of years than one cannot conclude from the absence of this component that
dinosaurs must be warm blooded.
