Visceral Emotion - Situation exists to safely express the given emotion
Situation exists to safely express anger too - Hence anger is a visceral emotion

The correct answer choice is (B) The first step in solving a Justify question is
to analyze the structure of the argument: Premise: There are always
situations in which it is healthy to try to express that [visceral] emotion.
Conclusion: There are always situations in which it is healthy to try to
express one’s anger. A quick mechanistic analysis reveals that the correct
(B) contains these two elements, and as it turns out, (B) is correct. Answer
choice (B) must also solve the Justify Formula: Premise: There are always
situations in which it is healthy to try to express that [visceral] emotion.
Answer choice (B): Anger is a visceral emotion. Does the combination of
these two elements lead to the conclusion? Yes, and so the answer must be
correct. The Justify Formula can also be used to eliminate each of the other

The official explanation is below:

Justify. October 2000 LSAT, Section 2, #4. The correct answer choice is (B).

The first step in solving a Justify question is to analyze the structure of the argument:

Premise: There are always situations in which it is healthy to try to express that [visceral] emotion.
Conclusion: There are always situations in which it is healthy to try to express one's anger.

A quick mechanistic analysis reveals that the correct answer should contain "anger" and "visceral emotion." Only answer choice (B) contains these two elements, and as it turns out, (B) is correct. Answer choice (B) must also solve the Justify Formula:

Premise: there are always situations in which it is healthy to try to express that [visceral] emotion.
Answer choice (B): Anger is a visceral emotion.

Does the combination of these two elements lead to the conclusion? Yes, and so the answer must be correct. The Justify Formula can also be used to eliminate each of the other answer choices.
