Q3

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 â€œmanyâ€ always implies â€œsome,â€ â€œsomeâ€ does not always imply â€œmany.â€ We can see in this specific passage that weâ€™re describing â€œa society in which there are many crimes,â€ and so â€œmanyâ€ 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.

Thanks

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...
