December 2002 LSAT Section 2 Question 12
Melody on February 3, 2015The first sentence of the politician's statements are an "unless" statement.
Sangwook on February 4, 2015"...Unless perhaps in those cases when to fail to do so would allow individuals to cause harm." In this sentence , doesn't it have another sufficient condition indicator?(==>"when to fail to do so..."). Is it ok if we just ignore this sufficient indicator as long as it belongs to "unless" clause???
Sangwook on February 4, 2015Here is my thoughts: The sentence - -"Unless in those cases when to fail to do so would allow individuals to cause harm." - -might have meaning that "unless when the govt. fails to restrict the liberty of individuals, it would allow individuals cause harms." So, shouldn't the logical structure be like [ not WGRL ===>( Not Restrict Liberty ==>CH)]???
Melody on February 5, 2015The part after the unless, i.e. the "except" is not a stand-alone Sufficient & Necessary statement. You cannot, therefore, break it up into a sufficient condition and a necessary condition.
