Which one of the following could be an accurate and complete list of the students who review only Sunset?

Last Rule

I didn't understand what rule four was talking about when I was taking the test so I just ignored it and went on to the questions. It turns out that I got all of them right without ever taking it into account. Does that happen often that one of the rules play a negligible role? It seemed pretty weird to me, yet I managed to to this game pretty quickly under time pressure.

Hi @avif,

I'm unsure how frequently this occurs on the LSAT, but I would recommend always taking all of the rules into account when addressing logic games.

If there's a rule that you don't understand while practising, make sure you go back and learn what it means and how it would have factored into the game.

While it is possible that some rules may have a negligible impact on the different possibilities, it's largely impossible to tell this until you've at least diagrammed a couple hypothetical set-ups. You don't want to go in assuming that some rules don't matter because every question is different and you don't want to give up any points based on an assumption.

Rule Four in this case means that exactly two students review exactly the same play(s).

Example: Kramer reviews only Tamerlane; therefore, O'Neill reviews only Tamerlane.

These would be the only two students would could review exactly the same plays. Everyone else's review lists would have to look different.

Hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
