We recently received the following question from a student. An instructor will respond below. Thanks!

Hi, I have been reading PowerScore's reading comprehension bible and I am quite confused about the difference between MustX and Cannot Be True. For instance, on page 202-203,the author of the book attribute sentence1 to MustX,however attribute sentence2 to Cannot Be True.For me, the structure of the two question stems are quite similar.could u tell me why?Thanks a lot.
sentence1:It can be inferred from the passage that Van Gogh would have been LEAST likely to choose which of the following as a subject of his work?
sentence2:Based on the passage,the author would be LEAST likely to consider which one of the following a suitable topic for public televison.

Hi,

Thanks for the question! This is a good example of the types of changes we make as we update each edition of our LSAT Bibles. This was an unintended discrepancy that has been fixed for the upcoming version :-D

Thanks!

I had the same question. Could you please post the correct answers for questions 3 & 5 on page 204 of the 2017 edition?

Sure! Here you go:


    #3 is entirely the same and remains a Must X.

    #5 is now a CannotX. BUT, the question stem itself was changed in the 2018 version as well (to "Based on the passage, the author would be LEAST likely to refuse which one of the following topics for a public television show?").

Thanks!
