I am not 100% sure but this is "resolve the paradox" type questions.

A logical fact is stated. Then an evidence is shown, contradicting the earlier fact.

Question goes like:
We know the fact is true and quite logical, yet we get to see an evidence that refutes the fact. Which of the following can help us understand why the evidence exists despite the logical fact.

Bottom line:

Please give me an example from a reliable source (OG, LSAT, GPrep) so that I know my understanding is not flawed. thanks

Others may correct me if I am wrong.
