Yes, it makes sense. I think I got on what the question was asking because now that I review the question and my work, I see the question asks for what COULD BE TRUE. The question doesn't read Must be true EXCEPT as I stated in my previous post. I tripped up the logical oppositions and i think that happens when I'm on a time constraint because I'm trying to be faster. I have noted your logical opposition reminder. Thank you
Time constraints can definitely cause us to misread/misinterpret! The more you practice, the easier it will be for you to apply the Opposition Construct, even under time pressure. So keep up the good work of analyzing the questions and trying to determine why you might have missed them!
But just to be clear, this is a Must Be True, EXCEPT question. That means we're eliminating all of the answer choices that must be true, and looking for the one answer choice that is not necessarily true. "Not necessarily true" includes both answer choices that cannot be true, as well as answer choices that could be true but do not have to be true. So for a question like this, I would focus on eliminating the answer choices that must always be true, and then choosing the answer choice that is not something that must always be true.
A could be true question is a bit different. In a could be true question, you're eliminating all of the answer choices that cannot be true, and you're choosing the answer choice that could be true. But the answer to a could be true question could, potentially, be an answer choice that actually must be true. "Must be true" answer choices fall into the "could be true" category, just like "cannot be true" answer choices fall into the "not necessarily true category." It just cannot be an answer choice that cannot be true.
Keep studying and practicing that Opposition Construct--you'll get it!
Hope this helps!
