June 2010 LSAT Section 1 Question 23
Melody on September 10, 2014This is a Principle Strengthen question. What we want to do is understand the argument, i.e. breakdown the conclusion and premise, and then pinpoint the answer choice that strengthens the connection between the premise and the conclusion.
Matthew on September 22, 2015To make this conclusion, I feel like there is another jump here. Is it safe to assume that because no one will say anything bad about public figures, public figures will NOT have a bad reputation? I feel like those are exclusive items, so I have trouble getting to that conclusion - although there is not a better answer choice present.
Melody on September 22, 2015I understand your concern, but this isn't a jump. It is true that if people will not say anything bad about someone, they will not have a bad reputation. A reputation is the common opinion held about soemone. If people hold back this opinion and keep it to themselves, then it will be very unlikely someone will have a bad reputation. This is not a leap, it is merely logical.
