Hi LSAT Max,
In the previous thread, there seems to be no clarity as to whether the argument in the stimulus is valid or invalid.
Isn't the argument invalid because the existence of the necessary condition doesn't invoke the existence of the sufficient? It looks like the stimulus and the correct answer choice have that exact flaw by concluding the S cond. of the contrapositive (the guide covers restrictions/award the prize) because of the existence of the N cond. (no taxation and no labor laws/ not a shrub and native to N.A)(?
I would appreciate for a third instructor to clear the confusion created by the instructors from the previous thread, thanks
