September 2007 LSAT Section 1 Question 3
Melody on January 18, 2014The words "the only" will always introduce a sufficient condition. "When" can also introduce a sufficient condition. You must first ask yourself, what is a sufficient condition? A sufficient condition is the condition that proves the existence of the necessary condition. It is what is dependent on the necessary condition, while the necessary condition is independent of the sufficient condition.

Richard on July 10, 2016I initially got this question wrong but only because I rushed through it thinking that I could answer it correctly without diagramming the formal logic. When I went back to it, paused the timer and diagrammed the formal local in the stem and answer choices, it was a lot easier. This really begs the question however, what is the determining factor for deciding when to diagram formal logic on a LR question versus simply thinking about the answer in your head?
