December 2009 LSAT Section 1 Question 17
Christopher on June 15, 2018@Ananyak, you're getting at the point by bringing up "by this very reasonable standard" phrase. We can deduce from the argument that the individual purchased a watch from Binghams store which is NOT in a department store, that the watch quit working the next day, and the consumer is now arguing that he or she should be given a refund. The consumer is arguing that (in essence) "if I had bought this at a department store and only used it as intended, they would give me a refund because it quit working the next day. Therefore, since this standard is fair, even though you're not a department store, you should give me a refund because I just bought it yesterday, and it quit working today." However, the consumer does not specify whether he or she used the watch only as intended, so you're missing part of the puzzle, which is what the question is asking you to fill in.
on June 23, 2018Yes that makes complete sense. Thank you so much for your help!
