OMG, it certainly is a “sneaky issue! But I think I get it now. So the difference is the rule for O and S says that there has to be at least one element (another composition) between them whereas the rule for P and M says that there has to be at least one YEAR between them and a year (in this scenario) is simply one placeholder in the diagram of 7 “placeholders”, is that right? So to go from 1990 to 1991 is one year but just one placeholder over. Therefore, P can be next to M.
I want you to know I think your book is written very well. It’s easy to read and encourages you to stay interested / involved. However, even with a degree in Computer Science and 25 years in the industry, the LSAT is still very challenging, to me. I’ll continue on with book and hopefully at the end when I start taking PTs 100% of the study time, something magical will happen and all that I’ve learned through your book will “click”:)
Thanks again! You are great!
