Hello, I'm new to the forum. The Bible has been an excellent resource, thank you for providing it!

I had a question about the stimulus on one of the questions.

I'm on the Kindle version, the question appears at location 6512 of 11988. Question 4.1 of the setup drill in the grouping/linear combination chapter.

This is a Local, must be true question in an overloaded scenario. Part of the challenge in this setup was not explicitly knowing if comics could appear more than once. The explanation of the answer to Q4.1 seems to make it clear that they cannot.

My question is if this was an oversight, or if this question was taken directly from a previous LSAT? In either case, are we to assume (unless otherwise instructed) that variables cannot be placed more than once in overloaded scenarios?

Please advise, thanks!

Hi Hari,

Thanks for the question! As with most drills we design to test specific ideas, these are drawn up by me, and revolve around certain concepts I want to highlight that have appeared on the LSAT. When we use real LSAT questions, we typically present all the questions to a game, not just one or two.

In this drill, the key phrase to indicate that each comic appeared only once was intended to be "individual performances." However, I understand why that might not have been clear to you. This is a new drill for the book, and so I'll make a clarification to that.

Please let me know if that helps. Thanks!
