Hello! We recently received the following question from a student. An instructor will comment below. Thanks!
I purchased your book for the LSAT RC preparation last year. I was reading today, chapter 3, page 90, Relationship Indicators. You have listed the words will, must, always, and never under the probability indicators. I have an issue with that, actually, because I strongly identify these words as certainty indicators. Do you have an explanation for this? What makes you list these words as probability indicators? I would like to have your insights regarding this issue.

The idea of probability on the LSAT includes certainty. For example, "sometimes" can mean "always." So when we talk about probability we include all possible states from impossible to certain in that discussion.

Thanks!
