I'm still relatively new to this so hopefully more practice will help, but I'm also wondering if there is a more general, almost algebraic, way of doing these types of questions?
Just using this question as an example - I'm looking at my diagram and saying, "Okay, I've got 'As Intelligent' common to both premises and conclusion as a necessary condition, so one possibility is that I need to link X and another possibility is that I need to link Y to get to my conclusion, etc."
I understand that part of what makes these questions hard is that there aren't hard and fast rules that say okay since I have X then Y will ALWAYS be true, but I'm just asking for a general approach/questions I can ask myself to hopefully make these kinds of conditional problems more clear/easier to "see."
