Question 12

Does the conditional change here still mean the X keeps all three options? If so, the conditional change here is really no change at all. Otherwise, if X and W has “exactly” two options in common P and L, which then would make C the correct answer. The only way that I see that D could be the correct answer is if X still has all three options and the suppose the new condition, is really no new condition. Can you help? Thank you.

Aha!!! On re-reading it much more carefully, I see that the wording (tricky, IMHO) technically allows for a change in the original W condition as well to (a) PL or (b) PS, thereby allowing C to be incorrect and D to be the correct answer. First inclination here was to only reduce the X option to PL. and not allow for W to change as well from the given PL to P L/S. Is there an overriding principle here to help or is it just that LSAC is venal :-)? Thanks again
