Practical consequences

Why does the correct answer states that there have been no practical consequences when the passage states that the Declaration has led, although belatedly, to the establishment of further standards

You are absolutely right, @dfolave - but this is an EXCEPT question, which means that the correct answer here "cannot be true" according to the text of the passage. As you note, this passage says that the Declaration has, in fact, had practical consequences. Thus, the statement that the Declaration has had no practical consequences (answer choice (C)) cannot be true, and is the correct answer.

Except questions can be difficult because many of us either overlook the word "except" at the end of the question stem, or we forget about it while we review the answer choices. It is a good idea to circle or underline or somehow try to emphasize the word for yourself as you practice LSAT questions, so you don't inadvertently overlook the right answer on such questions.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
