Missed Inference? Pg. 154 (LG Diagramming Drill Solutions)

    • January 3, 2017 at 10:12 am #2928

      As you can see in this diagram:

      Per the solution, shouldn’t ‘j’ be assigned to ‘T’?

      My thought process…

      The key rule to the game is:

      _h – T – _f

      If I am seeing this correctly, ‘T’ cannot be:
      -g (explicitly stated in the rules)
      -‘h’ or ‘f’ (‘T’ must be between those subgroups, per the rules)

      The inference:

      – ‘T’ cannot be first or last, the 1st or 5th position, respectively because it must come before and after an element. Therefore, ‘T’ cannot be ‘i’ (again, ‘i’ must be in the 1st or 5th spot.

      Recap: ‘T’ cannot be ‘f’, ‘h’, ‘g’, or ‘i’.

      ‘T’ must therefore be assigned to ‘j’ (or vice-versa). The diagramming example does not assign ‘T’ to ‘j’ and, if I am correct, this is a major inference that is not included in the solution on page 154. Not the biggest of deals – however I want to make sure I’m as thorough as I can be!

      Thanks so much for the help!

      Hey Aaron —

      That is absolutely an inference that can be made — it’s often a tough call for me to determine which inferences I should include and where, but that’s actually one of the handful of changes I’ve made for the 2017 version, which I just released last week — so great eye, and I certainly agree it’s something worth noting if you spot it — hope the studying is going well —

      Thanks, Mike! Studying is going very well – your book has definitely been huge for me, to be sure. I’ve see improvement daily since I started using your methods, kudos!

      Congrats on the new release! I’ll definitely be checking that out shortly here.

      Thanks again man!
