LR FROM LSAT [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2003, 23:35
Taken from Get-Prepped-Sample-LSAT

There is a common misconception that fish never
sleep. This misguided notion is based on the fact
that fish always have their eyes open. Actually, it is
a physiological condition that fish simply do not
have eyelids like humans do, so in reality fish are
unable to “close” their eyes at all and thus appear to
constantly be awake.

Which of the following best identifies the
conclusion of the argument above?

A) Animals that do not have eyelids are not
necessarily always awake.
B) Many common misconceptions about fish are
the result of physiological aspects of the
species.
C) The fact that human beings have eyelids
enables them to close their eyes and thus look
like they are asleep when they are sleeping.
D) It is more difficult for fish to fall asleep then it
is for humans since fish do not have eyelids.
E) While fish cannot close their eyes, they do in
fact sleep.

Being a good SC student, I wondered whether one sentence is correct and wether it is of LSAT quality...

I'm getting crazy if you're right!
I learnt that AS has to be used with clause and LIKE only with nouns - without a verb.

as, like Often confused when comparing things. Both mean "equally" or "the same as." Use the conjunction as, however, to introduce a clause (a group of words with its own subject and verb), he should in this example: Jennifer saves her computer work as she should. Use like as a preposition to make a direct comparison of nouns or pronouns. It needs an object, an expert in this example: Jennifer saves her computer work like an expert. Memory tip: As is followed by a noun and a verb while like is followed by only a noun.

Simple one (E).
Can someone comment on the difficulty of "1000_CR" with the real GMAT. Will it alone be enough preparation for the CRs in the GMAT.
