The commissioner has announced that Judge Khalid, who was on the seven-member panel appointed to resolve the Amlec labor dispute, will have sole responsibility for resolving the Simdon labor dispute. Since in its decision the Amlec panel showed itself both reasonable and fair, the two sides in the Simdon dispute are undoubtedly justified in the confidence they have expressed in the reasonableness and fairness of the arbitrator assigned to their case.
Which one of the following contains flawed reasoning most parallel to that contained in the passage?
(A) Representing the school board, Marcia Barthes presented to the school’s principal a list of recently elected school board members. Since only an elected member of the school board can act as its representative. Ms. Barthes’s name undoubtedly appears on that list.
(B) Alan Caldalf, who likes being around young children, has decided to become a pediatrician. Since the one characteristic common to all good pediatricians is that they like young children, Mr. Caldalf will undoubtedly be a very good pediatrician.
(C) Jorge Diaz is a teacher at a music school nationally known for the excellence of its conducting faculty. Since Mr. Diaz has recently been commended for the excellence of his teaching, he is undoubtedly a member of the school’s conducting faculty.
(D) Ula Borg, who has sold real estate for Arcande Realty for many years, undoubtedly sold fewer houses last year that she had the year before since the number of houses sold last year by Arcande Realty is far lower than the number sold the previous year.
(E) The members of the local historical society unanimously support designating the First National Bank building a historical landmark. Since Evelyn George is a member of that society, she undoubtedly favors according landmark status to the city hall as well.

I will have to go with D. One person in the board is judged to be good, because the board was good. Similarly, in D, one person is judged to have done badly because the group did badly.

In the original reasoning, one element of a group is perceived according to the rest of the group, answer D best follows the same parallel.

Im going with D, makes assumptions about a person performing an action based on the fact that the group to whom the person belongs performs that action

E seems close but I think the statement

"Since Evelyn George is a member of that society, she undoubtedly favors according landmark status to the city hall as well"

throws it off. The translation from the stem is :

Since Amlec panel is fair, therefore a member of that panel will be fair

in D we can translate

Since the number of houses sold by arcande was far less , undoubtly Ula sold far less

that makes sense


in E it translates to

since Evelyn is a member of the group, she favors the groups decision

it comes close, but i think if it stated

since the society wanted to give city hall landmark status , Evelyn being part of the society will give the city landmark status

man im confusing myself

whats the OA

There are actually two problems with E - it's tricky.

First, it says that the society unanimously wants to give the bank landmark status. So, it's not logically incorrect to say that Evelyn, as a member of the society, wants to give the bank landmark status.

However, that's not what E says. It says that the society wants to give the First Bank Building landmark status and that since Evelyn is part of the society, she must want to give City Hall landmark status. (emphasis mine) Two different buildings!

So E is "Everyone in the group wants A, so one member of the group must want B."

I agree with the rest of your reasoning - I'd go with D as the answer.

buckkitty, I am sorry for that..these are LSAT CRs..so it is okay if we can't solve some of them :wink:

In my practice tests, I noticed that I was weak in parallel reasoning. Trying to dig out those questions from CR 1000, and solve those questions particularly. Sharing some of those with you guys. :)

It is a fact that some of the posted questions are really tough.

Excellent analysis guys. Thank you. D is the OA.

I also noticed that I was weak in these types of reasoning questions, so I appreciate you posting all of these. I think if you can really master the logic of these types of questions, it will help a lot in all types of CR questions. At least I'm not taking the LSAT!

Thanks buckkitty for these words "I think if you can really master the logic of these types of questions, it will help a lot in all types of CR questions". Solved some 50 questions of this type. I am able to make some sense out of a typical parallel reasoning question now. :)
