Hello

So according to what I understood so far, "many" can also mean "some", and they both can mean"at least one" or even "all".

What about "few"? What does it mean in the LSAT language?

So, for instance, if we say, " Few people love rock n roll." Can we infer that "some people do not love rock n roll?"

Thank you so much!

Hello!

Thank you for the great resource. So unlike "some" and "many", "few" and "several" cannot include all?

Thank you!!

Ssouki,

I would say this is correct - both "a few of" and "several of" connote a portion of an overall group, meaning they cannot represent the entire group.

Hope that helps!
