December 2013 LSAT Section 3 Question 19
Melody on May 20, 2015Here we have a strengthen with necessary premise question. Remember that a premise is necessary for a conclusion if the falsity of the premise guarantees or brings about the falsity of the conclusion. First we check to see if the answer choice strengthens the passage, and then, if it does strengthen, we negate the answer choice to see if its negation makes the argument fall apart. If the answer choice does both those things then it is our correct answer.
Kath on November 4, 2019I don't really understand why you said "if they were all purchased 2 years ago", since the stimulus says the trucks were purchased 3 years ago. Do you mean if the 20 new trucks were sold 2 years ago? Thanks in advance!
