Hey vjsharma25
I have seen one pattern in LSAT questions - and this pattern is absent on gmat questions. The question is seeking an answer which splits the "sufficient condition" Vs the "necessary condition". I believe that the necessary condition is one we have analyzed - the society needs few good men. The sufficient condition is good people benefit from the good deed - that is the reason OA has "It is to the advantage of some individuals". If you don't read this carefully you are going to miss the point.

This pattern will not make an error of judgement on GMAT CR but on LSAT it will because legal documents must split between what is necessary and sufficient - I mean they should. So as a management aspirant we don't have to be discrete between the splits - necessary VS sufficient. If you looking for a law school then you must differentiate between the two on first sight :-)

Is it because some people are concerned about the societal good,they are getting benefited from that and if they are unconcerned then they will not get that benefit or in other words will damage themselves (as passage suggests) ?

So if they are damaging themselves and society at large by showing indifferent attitude,it must be assumed that they must get some benefit by showing some concern towards society.


Can you elaborate on where and how conditional reasoning is used in the stimulus? Also which are the markers?

Thank you.

Hi,
I am still unable to understand how the advantage to some individual can damage individuals and society at large.

C and D are out of scope.
Since the conclusion is about individual in modern era, A is out of scope.
B is much better than E b/c B fills in the gap between "Sympathetic treatment of such characters suggests to readers that one should be unconcerned about contributing to societal good". AND "modem literature can damage individuals who appropriate this attitude"

furthermore, options contain "some" and those options normally are out of scope, but here, one of them is actually correct.
