September 2007 LSAT Section 1 Question 14
Mehran on November 21, 2015Thank you for your question. This is a Paradox logical reasoning question. Typically, such questions include a stimulus that consists of a set of facts. Here, however, we have a conclusion: the researchers conclude that their observations support their initial hypothesis (that the more a student studies, the better that student performs academically). That's strange at first glance, since the data the researchers collected seems to undermine this theory (the stimulus says "it turned out that the students who spent the most time studying did not earn grades as high as did many students who studied less").
