Is there an LSAT definition that distinguishes CAN from MAY?
I got this right only after spending over 7 minutes on this apparently easy question. I interpreted the stimulus as saying if you receive public funding, you are incapable of detaching yourself, therefore it is ok to have your academic freedom restricted. That doesn't really make sense but I don't see how that's any worse than saying scientists who receive public funding are not permitted to detach, therefore restrictions are ok. The Soviets are bad for not allowing scientists to detach themselves. Or in shorter form:
US: Okay to NOT detach
Soviets: Should detach
NOT ok to NOT detach Ok to detach
I did a lot of unnecessary work because I randomly misread the meaning of CAN. How can I prevent this from happening again?
