The following text is an extract from the third chapter of the LSAT Prep Courses.

Analytical Reasoning questions, or known as logic games, are comprised of three parts: the initial scenario or set-up of the game, the list of conditions or rules that apply to the game, and then the set of questions. The set-up describes the basic situation where several elements will be arranged. It may require you to schedule programs for a TV station with various time slots, to divide a group of people into smaller ones, or to figure out the connection ways in a contorted network. A sample set-up in an LSAT game looks like this:

Let’s look at a sample scenario in an LSAT game:

Six students – Mathew, Owen, Philippine, Ryan, Sandra, and Ted, are expected to take six seats in a straight line, numbered from 1 to 6. Each of the six seats is taken by each of the six students.

Immediately following the set-up is a list of conditions that restrict the arrangement of various elements. For example, commercial advertisements can not be in consecutive time slots, Andy can not be in the same group as Ted, or line AB is one-way. For the above set-up, the conditions are as followed:

The arrangement of the seats is subject to the following conditions:
Owen must take a lower-numbered seat than Philippine.
Mathew must take a lower-numbered seat than Ted.
Sandra cannot take seat 1.
Ryan must take the seat immediately adjacent to the seat Owen takes.

Then, the test-maker will pose 5 to 7 questions. A sample question looks like:

Which of the following arrangements of seats from 1 through 6, respectively, conforms to the conditions above?
A. Mathew, Sandra, Ted, Philippine, Ryan, Owen
B. Owen, Philippine, Mathew, Ted, Sandra, Ryan
C. Ryan, Owen, Mathew, Sandra, Philippine, Ted
D. Sandra, Mathew, Ted, Ryan, Owen, Philippine
E. Ted, Owen, Ryan, Mathew, Philippine, Sandra

What does analytical reasoning test?

The analytical reasoning questions are designed to test your ability to understand the relationships among various elements, and to draw conclusion based on given information. This section does not measure any specific knowledge. A person with or without college degree can do it perfectly. However, in order to get a high score, a test-taker should become familiar with the LSAT game, and be able to solve problem under time pressure.

Also, the test-takers are expected to understand the scope words precisely. Some commonly used scope words are exactly, immediately, only, never, etc. Keep alert to these scope words. If you misunderstand a scope word in the original conditions, it is highly possible that you get all the following questions wrong.

Analytical Reasoning on the Test Day

On the test day, you will find four sets of games. Each game contains five to seven questions. The section has a total of 23 or 24 questions. Here is the instruction at the beginning of this section:

Directions: Each group of questions in this section is based on a set of conditions. In answering some of the questions it may be useful to draw a rough diagram. Choose the response that most accurately and completely answers each question and blacken the corresponding space on your answer sheet.

These directions will never change. Don’t waste valuable time on reading them in the test room.

However, the response “that most accurately and completely answers each question” is always the only correct answer choice. You should not be concerned that there is another answer choice that could conceivably answer the question but not the correct one. That means, after you pick up the right the answer choice, you do not need to go through next answers choices to eliminate all of others. This will save you much time on the test day.
