Hi, while working through the LRB, I came across one of the questions in the problem set that confused me. The second question (562 in 2019 version) is a parallel flaw, and the correct answer D seems to contain wording inconsistent with the stimulus. In the stimulus, the author claims that the country "will not improve". In the correct answer, the outside temperature "cannot rise". Since will not does not imply cannot, I do not see how the answer precisely parallels the stimulus.
Is D correct in this case because the flaw in the answer choice still matches the flaw in the stimulus?
In general, the distinction between cannot and will not is important, but is this distinction important to LSAT authors as it relates to parallel questions?
