Didn't we learn that many plays the same role as some, why did we distinguish between them in this question in answer choice D & E?

Hi @Dalaal,

Thanks for the question! While “many” always implies “some,” “some” does not always imply “many.” We can see in this specific passage that we’re describing “a society in which there are many crimes,” and so “many” has a special role in the case of this question.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any further questions that you might have.

I don't understand, could you illustrate on "many"'s special role in this question?

@Dalaal, could you reference the question for me? When I click 'view' on the top right, the app is directing me to the 'Intro to LSAT Max' course video, but I'm not seeing a question. Let me know the test, section, and question number for this problem, and I'll be happy to expound on many's special role in this question.

I have a question on how to diagram the premise "A society that has no laws has no crimes" . I understand intuitively how it is diagrammed but according to the No rule shouldn't it be diagrammed differently ?
Positve L and positve C instead.
According to No rule:
Whatever introduces the no (sufficient condition ) is not negated, so L.
And then what follows (necessary condition ) is always negated so no crimes because just crimes .
Thus, positive L and positve C. If there are laws there are crimes.

Hi @Gabriela-Diaz,

I think the no rule is different:

No As are Bs could be thought of as "There is not a single case of an A that is a B" or "If it is an A, it cannot also be a B." It would be diagrammed as
A --> not B

For "A society that has no laws has no crimes," we'd think of it as "If a society has A, then it has no B." Diagrammed, we'd get
If no A, then no B
not A --> not B
B --> not A
"A society that has no laws has no crimes" diagrammed becomes
not L --> not C
C --> L

I hope I'm right...
