“Presumes without providing warrant”

I got this one right, but i see in the test a few times it says the phrase “presumes without providing warrant”, is my assumption correct that this basically means “incorrectly assumes without justification”?

@Deke, your assumption is correct—that's precisely what it means. Let us know if you have any more questions!

Could you please remind me what "takes for granted" means in LSAT context?

Hi @hannahnaylor5,

"Takes for granted" is used in a pretty similar way to its colloquial usage. Essentially, if you take A for granted, you are asserting A as correct even though B might be correct as well. For example, if I say that Popeye's has the best chicken sandwich, I'm taking for granted that other chains don't have better chicken sandwiches. Hope this helps.

Could I interchange that phrase with "assumes"?
