Chp. 18, Pg. 264 – SA Question 4

    • September 19, 2016 at 2:49 pm #2733

      Hello Everyone,

      In going though old LR questions as a daily warm up, I got stuck on one from back in Chp. 18. For question 31.2.10, I see why D is correct, but I really want to be able to see concrete reasons why the other answers are wrong. The solutions were only somewhat helpful in eliminating answers and the other explanations I found online were only mildly helpful.

      Conclusion: Many FP > ~D
      Support: JR > ~D
      (D > ~JR)

      A) “Never” negates the necessary condition “regret.”

      P > ~R

      We’re looking for: Many FP are JR. So for A, this does not fill the gap PLUS it’s not talking about “foregone pleasures” or even “justifiable regrets.”

      B) How is B the reverse of what we need? For B:

      FP ~D > ~JR
      (JR > FP D)

      I don’t see how this is the reverse of “Many FP > JR”

      C) This seems to just give a definition of a foregone pleasure.

      D) Correct Answer. Fills the gap.

      E) “Nothing” is tricky to work with. I’m confused about this impact.

      ~D > P
      (~P > D)

      We’re looking for a connection to regret. I don’t see that here. If E matched up with “foregone pleasures” would it be correct then? If so, how?

      What do B and E even mean? Even though I can diagram them, I still don’t really understand what they’re saying. Can anyone help shed some light on these for me? Thanks!
