This LSAT shenanigannery is getting tough. My goal of a 180 is most likely nearly impossible. I'm altering my reasonable expectations for the test to around a 172. That's a great score, and is still going to be nearly impossible to achieve.
Instead of daily focus and practice (as recommended by LSAT test masters) for 7+ months, I've mostly just drank a little less and taken half-practice tests while hungover. I have yet to take a full test under test conditions (no breaks, no food/drink, Nazi-style restrictions on what you can bring, etc.) but I have seen my score climb up a few points each test. 161, 163, 165, 167. I don't feel like I'm actually getting any better at it, just more lucky. Nothing wrong with Luck, right? (no smart comments from you, Staycee)
Today I literally cursed out a textbook. I took a practice section (logical reasoning) and got to a question that was super lame. In fact, next to it I penciled in "BIGGEST BS E.V.E.R." I'm not kidding, either.
$10 to the person who can give the right answer and explain clearly why it is the right answer:
Certain instruments used in veterinary surgery can be made either of stainless steel or of nylon. In a study of such instruments, 50 complete sterilizations of a set of nylon instruments required 3.4 times the amount of energy used to manufacture that set of instruments, whereas 50 complete sterilizations of a set of stainless steel instruments required 2.1 times the amount of energy required to manufacture that set of instruments.
If the statements above are true, each of the following could be true EXCEPT:
(A) The 50 complete sterilizations of the nylon instruments used more energy than did the 50 complete sterilizations of the stainless steel instruments.
(B) More energy was required for each complete sterilization of the nylon instruments than was required to manufacture the nylon instruments.
(C) More nylon instruments than stainless steel instruments were sterilized in the study.
(D) More energy was used to produce the stainless steel instruments than was used to produce nylon instruments.
(E) The total cost of 50 complete sterilizations of the stainless steel instruments was greater than the cost of manufacturing the stainless steel instruments.
Biggest. BS. Ever.
