LSAT question
« on: July 22, 2011, 06:33:13 PM »
I have a question and hopefully someone can shed some light on the use of the word consecutively vs. immediately. Specifically as it relates to the LG bible from Power score on page 53 ( Drill # 5) question 5.1

In the which one cannot be true scenarios, when the test makers say that F and R are played consecutively does this mean immediately before or after?  or F and R are played sometime after or before? I am confused, probably reading more than what it is, but still confused nevertheless..

Thanks,

IF you are told that A and C are played consecutively then all that you now is that A and C must be next to one another.  You do not know the variable that occurs first.  As such you can have AC or CA.

When you are told a variable is immediately after another variable then you have a consecutive ordering.  i.e. a is played immediately after C = CA
