Good One!
---------------
Jane: Professor Harper’s ideas for modifying the design of guitars are of no value because there is no general agreement among musicians as to what a guitar should sound like and, consequently, no widely accepted basis for evaluating the merits of a guitar’s sound.
Mark: What’s more, Harper’s ideas have had enough time to be adopted if they really resulted in superior sound. It took only ten years for the Torres design for guitars to be almost universally adopted because of the improvement it makes in tonal quality.
Which one of the following most accurately describes the relationship between Jane’s argument and Mark’s argument?
(A) Mark’s argument shows how a weakness in Jane’s argument can be overcome.
(B) Mark’s argument has a premise in common with Jane’s argument.
(C) Mark and Jane use similar techniques to argue for different conclusions.
(D) Mark’s argument restates Jane’s argument in other terms.
(E) Mark’s argument and Jane’s argument are based on conflicting suppositions.

I think the answer is E.

Janes says "there is no general agreement among musicians as to what a guitar should sound like and, consequently, no widely accepted basis for evaluating the merits of a guitar’s sound."

Mark says "..took only ten years for the Torres design for guitars to be almost universally adopted "

its is from LSAT .. i know

Janes presupposes that there can be no agreement as to what does superior quality really mean.
And MArk Presupposes that there can be a superior quality and superior quality is attained in his example.

whats the OA ?

How can you remember questions from such a large pool??
How many times did you finish LSAT-CR?
Any strategy to revise the questions ? Is it good to take a look at questions that we already finished?

I am asking becoz, I tend to forget the questions that I do after a week or so..
whats more? I even get them right first time and wrong second time..
