Hi LSAT Max,
I was wondering if someone could give me general advice when it comes to using common knowledge on the LSAT.
For example, Questions 3 and 4 for this video lesson required you to recognize that there was counter-evidence being overlooked and a biased speaker in the stimuli. For #3, I chose E, but not because it was overlooking the fact that mammals don't fly. That fact didn't even cross my mind, and I don't even think I knew that before watching the question explanation. So in situations like this, are there any indicators that you would have to connect the dots to assumptions and facts outside of the info. given?
Similarly, for #9 I wasn't certain if "intelligent" and "genius" were being used interchangeably. Do you have any advice on how to determine whether a condition is different from others in a stimulus?
Thank you in advance for the help, much appreciated!
