If I remember correctly, it was a parallel reasoning question, and the stem had to do with an ironic situation where allocating harsher penalties for crimes could sometimes result in less deterrence because juries become less willing to convict. I can't remember the answer choices though.

Yes, that's the one.

Antilock breaks, I picked seatbelts.  The Wine and coats were def. experimental.

Speaking of harsher penalties that reminds me of another crime question

crime rates question, crime rates are down but people are more anxious, resolve
I picked the media are overeproting crime stories
but there was another possible answer that I considered

For the parallel question about criminal sentencing, I put the one that had to do with a new medical procedure to treat a disease not saving more lives.

Ok, I picked that too.  I think it was C?

If I remember correctly, the one involving paintings and prices was a parallel reasoning question, and the stem had to do with an ironic situation where allocating harsher penalties for crimes could sometimes result in less deterrence because juries become less willing to convict.

i think it was C also.  what was the rest of the answer?

Yeah, it was C.

It said that a new medical procedure designed to cure a disease might not save lives because of an increased risk during the procedure.

I also picked the one about the media reporting twice as many violent crime things.

on the crime rates question most of the other answer choices seemed crappy,
I remember one choice about people who tend to be anxious about crime tend to live in areas of higher crime rates
one other choice definitely also mentioned the media

#24 on the 26 question section was parallel reasoning, I put A.

Also, I put E on #26, not sure if those are helpful

PAIGEROO--what is meant my the #21 explanation I have no idea what you are saying.
