sorry guys...

Well I was getting a large % of Qs wrong ( as per the key in the LSAT Paper)...I got 'really worried'....checked keys available from another source ...which says OA is A....
All the qs I got wrong in that set were indeed correct...I was thinking that LSAC usually releases the keys along with the Q...
Feeling terrible ..having lost a lot of confidence and peppering you with this Q...

Well thank you for the rather timely admission that intervened a possible suicide attempt on my part (because I was simply not ready to believe that D could be the answer by any stretch of imagination)

Thanks..

Which LSAT paper are you using? I just had similar issue with paper #45. I have discovered that they confused the columns (E.g. RC comes in section B, but answer comes in section A).

Believe me.... It scared the s*it out of me. So much that I got a MGMAT CR book from someone overnight and finished most of it in one go. I was up until 9 AM(just 3 minutes before u figured it was wrong). This after a day of finishing MGMAT SC book in one go again.

So, Thanks mate. No need to feel sorry. You just made someone study harder than he thought he needed to. But It feels so f*eaking nice to know that the question is a bummer

I'd disagree. Remember, a lot of the CR questions you get are COMPLETELY USELESS! They fudge the choices too close together. I find the GMAT questions (granted I haven't done the real GMAT yet, but I've done old GMAT paper tests) are well written, clear, concise, and the answer choices are well written and concise.

The problem with CR questions from questionable sources is that the answers are too subjective. Remember, most GMAT question writers have PhDs in statistics and formulating valid questions that minimize subjectivity.

this question is official LSAT question (paper 45). Although LSAT CR's dont score high on "relevance", they are more difficult than GMAT ones.

Ok my bad, but seriously, some of the Barrons questions made me want to lose it. This question is just pure BS, like most lawyers are I guess they go hand in hand hah
