ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I try using Assumption Negation technique to find the correct answer for the Assumption questions but i STILL get wrong answer :(.
Justify question are even worse!

I was wondering if you guys have any general tips on how to attack these two question types.

The positive side is that i prephrase my answers much better now
THANKS!

1.  Always look for the hole or flaw in the argument.  Once you spot it, it's much easier to find the right assumption answer.

2.  Be careful to distinguish between Necessary Assumption questions and Sufficient Assumption questions.  Very different animals.

3.  With Justify questions, you're seeking to fill in the hole or flaw in the argument.  See point 1. 

L, so i should never use Negation Technique on Justify questions, right?
I also feel that with Justify questions the answer has elements that are already present in the stimulus while Assumption answers can contain new info. Am I right?
