Government official: Clearly, censorship exists if we, as citizens, are not allowed to communicate what we are ready to communicate at our own expense or if other citizens are not permitted access to our communications at their own expense. Public unwillingness to provide funds for certain kinds of scientific, scholarly, or artistic activities cannot, therefore, be described as censorship.
The flawed reasoning in the government officialâ€™s argument is most parallel to that in which one of the following?
(A) All actions that cause unnecessary harm to others are unjust: so if a just action causes harm to others, that action must be necessary.
(B) Since there is more to good manners than simply using polite forms of address, it is not possible to say on first meeting a person whether or not that person has good manners.
(C) Acrophobia, usually defined as a morbid fear of heights, can also mean a morbid fear of sharp objects. Since both fears have the same origin.
(D) There is no doubt that a deed is heroic if the doer risks his or her own life to benefit another person. Thus an action is not heroic if only thing it endangers is the reputation of the doer.
(E) Perception of beauty in an object is determined by past and present influences on the mind of the beholder. Thus on object can be called beautiful, since not everyone will see beauty in it.

The argument says if people are forced to do X then X is bad, however if the people do X willingly then that X is not bad. Basically X has no attribute at all.

Similarly if you look at (E)

an object has no attribute at all. It merely from people's point of view it become either beautiful or not beautiful.

I taught the flaw is in the comparison - communication to philanthropy but could not find anything similar to that.

Saurya, these CRs are interesting where did you get these from

Oh I know these. These have to be LSAT CRs. Dont do these as you approach the test date. concentrate on OG CRs during the final phase. It is good to start with these initially to make your reasoning stronger.

Wow this one is hard. The logic actually seems quite plausible to me. Anyways let me try to attack it.

Stem: A exists if B happens. Thus, if B doesn't exist, then A doesn't exist.

I feel that it is most close to (D), as it also says, A exist if B happens. Thus if B is not there, then A doesn't exist.

Edit: Oops didn't notice we've already got OA. Looks like my strategy of waiting for some replies before I look at it (to give others a chance to comment before me ) doesn't work so well. :p
