September 2009 LSAT Section 5 Question 14
on July 12, 2019Yes, can someone explain why B is wrong?
Irina on July 12, 2019@JeremyG This is a flaw question. The answer choice B is incorrect because the question focuses on survey respondents' perception of the crime rate and sentencing rather than the actual crime and sentencing statistics. The editor presumes that people are correct in their perceptions and bases his conclusion on that belief, but it is not necessary for him to assume that there is actual correlation between criminal offenders being treated leniently and a high crime rate to form this conclusion.
