The thing to note about these explanations is not to accept them without deliberation. At the end of the day, the LSAT is testing you on your independent analytical thinking skills. Different people will have different ways of interpreting a certain question, of different ways of arriving at the correct answer. Just because an instructor said so doesn’t mean you will be able to replicate their train of thought when you are on your own. So look at the explanations if you are stuck, but do so critically and don’t use them as a substitute for independent thinking.
