Hi @reh21903,

Thanks for the question! This is an important skill to have for the LSAT. So the conclusion and the premise will each have a different set of words that might introduce them. For example, “this is because” or “based on” types of phrases will tend to precede premises. Conclusions, on the other hand, may be marked by phrases like “in conclusion” or “therefore.” Also, think about the logical structure of the argument. If you try to see how the pieces fit together, you should generally be able to tell which sentences (the premises) are supporting which (the conclusion). Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
