No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term. Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones. So it is untrue that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will be introductory level classes.

The pattern of reasoning displayed in the argument above is most closely paralleled by that in which one of the following arguments?

A. The Morrison Building will be fully occupied by May and since if a building is occupied by May the new tax rates apply to it, the Morrison building will be taxed according to the new rates.

B. The revised tax code does not apply at all to buildings built before 1900, and only the first section of the revised code applies to buildings built between 1900 and 1920, so the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building , since it was built in 1873.

C. All property on Overon Road will be reassessed for tax purposes by the end of the year and the Elnor Company headquarters is on Overton Road, so Elnor's property taxes will be higher next year.

D. New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years and all new buildings in the city's Alton district are exempt for 5 years, so the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year.

E. Since according to recent statute, a building that is exempt from property taxes is charged for city water at a special rate, and hospitals are exempt from property taxes, Founder's Hospital will be charged for city water at the special rate.

My choice: A

Structure: fact 1 followed by fact 2 followed by conclusion and fact 2 builds on fact 1

Only A and E follow this structure but in E fact 2 does not build on fact 1. Hence I go for A.

Confusing one ...

But the second premise is needed. The first premise refers to term one. The second premise says that the next term has only advanced classes. Without this information, it cannot be concluded that both of the prof's classes cannot be introductory in the "next term".

hmmm on second thoughts .. think i might go for D.

Well I am one of the minorties here that thinks it's B. B categorizes buildings before and after 1900, just as the same as categorizing French from intro to advanced level. The conclusion of "the revised code does not apply to the Norton Building , since it was built in 1873." parallels the conclusion that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will not be introductory level classes.

How about seeing this problem as Data sufficiency problem?

Statement 1. No one in the French department to which Professor Alban belongs is allowed to teach more than one introductory level class in any one term.

Statement 2. Moreover, the only language classes being taught next term are advanced ones.

Conclusion: It is untrue that both of the French classes Professor Alban will be teaching next term will be introductory level classes.

going by DS rules, we can come to the conclusion by using either of the statements.

Now I will consider Option D.

Statement 1: New buildings that include public space are exempt from city taxes for two years

Statement 2: All new buildings in the city's Alton district are exempt for 5 years

Conclusion: So the building with the large public space that was recently completed in Alton will not be subject to city taxes next year

going by DS rules, we can come to the conclusion by using either of the statements.

I'll jump in and add to the chaos by choosing (E). D seems too vague by it's use of the word recently.

I despise these kinds of CRs. Mindbending LSAT logic that just loves to chew up the clock.
