hope this isnt too late to help u
so first i looked at it and automatically cut out a, d and e
which r wrong b/c they r weak or indecisive
the logic to choosing b is this, I think
u they made this statement saying universal acceptance of this theory will elad to moral decline
then in the next sentence they start connceting the dots
first if people dont believe they r respinsisble then they will feel unshamed
second, if a lot of them are unashamned then it leads to moral decline

the jump is in the first sentence b/c they do not specifically say how believing in this scientific theory will elad to ppl feeling they are not respinsible for their actions
thus the answer B

how about Section 4, # 19 and 20? Can't figure them out and the kaplan explanation is bad.

so for 20 its pretty straight forward to see the leap in logic
i like to put a person in place of these abstract questions
so say I like praise b/c i want favorable opinions of me
now i can only desire praise if i do the deed out of a desire to help others

now their conclusion says, well then i don't deserve praise because i only desire a favorable opinion of others

so what allows this to be said is i cant do something out of a desire of favorbale opinion of others AND have a desire to help them

so 19 is freakin hard
and i think its hard b/c there seems, at least to me, extra info
so if u just look at the last 2 setences, u can pretty much see their leap in logic

they say that
1) more equal power means less funding
2) referndum will lessen welfare

well referendum is more equal power so by our logic, referendums lead to less funding, but then how does less funding lead to less welfare?

obviously by having w/e that funding is used for be somewhat respinsible for the welfare of a society
