Use of the word "all"

Hi @abiGrand,

Thanks for the question! This might be true. But remember, on the LSAT, we accept the premises in the argument as true! No matter how strange they might seem. So if the premises say that “all governments acknowledge it,” then for the purpose of that question, all governments acknowledge it, without exception. Because “all” on the LSAT really does mean each and every single one.

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