Hi guys - in the video, Mehran restates the importance of "being able to distinguish between sufficient and necessary strengthen questions", but I am really confused as to HOW we do this...the question stems are often worded in such a way that it is clear that we are looking to Strengthen, but I don't have a clue how to tell between S w/ Suff versus S w/ Nec. Are there key words that I should be looking for in the Q stems? And if so, is this the only way to differentiate? Does that require simply memorizing certain words and learning to associate them with specific question types?
I know LSAT writers design the test with trickery in mind, so I am hesitant to rely on memorizing words and basing my answering strategies on ambiguity. They sometimes switch up the words/phrasing just for "fun", and I ain't about to go down that road with them if I can avoid it. :-)
Please let me know if you can provide some additional information as to how we can distinguish between the two different types of Strengthen questions.
