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!
