Cleared it up, man. Just went to the old Google machine. Really sorry for the lengthy conversation. This statement just totally mind fucked me.
One more thing man:
Did I mess up in my intermediary translation?
When I say, only cheese lovers are American, I’m saying only x is y.
Does that change the meaning?
I got ya, man. Had to break it down to something physical: only those who are Houstonians are Texans. That statement doesn’t make any sense because you don’t have to be a Houstonian to be a Texan. However, “only those who are Texans are Houstonians” does make sense. You have to be from Texas to be from Houston.
Thanks for clearing it up for me, man. I know I shouldn’t really care…Read More
Question about the lesson 18 American and Cheese drill. I don’t quite understand the “only those who love cheese are American” translation. The “are” in the statement implies to me that being American is necessary for loving cheese. I think I came to that conclusion because I translated the sentence to “only cheese lovers are American”. This, in my opinion, actually implies a…Read More
Thanks so much for the insight, man
Big thanks to both the Dans. The breakdown of writing out the possible pairs of mauve dinos for sure helps and far more manageable–and effective in my opinion than 7sage’s approach. I guess I wasn’t very direct with my statement, but I when diagramming the game, I wrote out the conditional rule u->~v correctly, but I didn’t take the next step to see that it means that at least one of…Read More
This game has probably been covered ad nauseam, but I’d very much like to see an LSAT Trainer approach to it. BTW, just watched the 7sage explanation. It was good, but I don’t think I’d ever think to map every possible inference… That said, the inference of U/V must be out was genius. Hopefully, I’ll remember to keep that in my back pocket. Two things to point out though, 1) they didn’t…Read More
My question came about mostly because I’m an idiot. Reading the stimulus I came up with this rough interpretation:
1) Amp pop declining
2) Oz declining cont. past 50 yrs
3) UV-B (blocked by oz) CAN be bad for genes
4) Amps have little protection to UV-B
Therefore, oz decline primary cause to amp pop decline
This seems like a corr=caus fallacy with a small asterisk of primary caus…Read More
