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! The key here is the language in the first sentence: "From ten comics...exactly eight will be scheduled for individual performances." That is meant to tell you that 8 of the 10 comics are used, and since there are only 8 performances, each comic performs just once.

Please let me know if that helps. Thanks!
