June 2010 LSAT Section 5 Question 9
Mehran on February 14, 2018That is correct. We say the same thing.
Bradley on February 20, 2019I have a similar question. I believe we're referring to the Boy named Sure example (nice touch btw). In that scenario, the argument IS valid IF the premises are assumed true. However, because "not all boys are named sue" the argument was then considered to be invalid. In short, are we always supposed to assume that the premises are true? Or if we know that a premise is factually false, can we consider an argument illogical for that reason?
Katherine on February 20, 2019Hi @BradG,
Bradley on February 20, 2019Makes more sense.
