Want to kick off your LSAT prep with practice questions on the go? No problem.


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.

Jason enters six races: biking, canoeing, horseback riding, ice skating, running, and swimming. He places between first and fifth in each. Two places are consecutive only if the place numbers are consecutive. Jason's places in canoeing and running are consecutive. His places in ice skating and swimming are consecutive. He places higher in biking than in horseback riding. He places higher in canoeing than in running.

1. If Jason places higher in running than in biking and places higher in biking than in ice skating and swimming, which one of the following allows all six of his race rankings to be determined?

A. He places fourth in horseback riding.

B. He places fourth in ice skating.

C. He places the same in both horseback riding and ice skating.

D. He places the same in both horseback riding and swimming.

E. He places higher in horseback riding than in swimming.

2. If Jason places higher in running than in biking and places higher in horseback riding than in ice skating, exactly how many of his rankings can be determined?

A. 2

B. 3

C. 4

D. 5

E. 6

3. Assume that Jason's rank in running is higher than his rank in ice skating and consecutive with it, and that his rankings in swimming and running differ. Which one of the following must be true?

A. Jason places both first and second.

B. Jason places both first and third.

C. Jason places both second and fourth.

D. Jason places both second and fifth.

E. Jason places both fourth and fifth.


Directions: The questions in this section are based on the reasoning contained in brief statements or passages. For some questions, more than one of the choices could conceivably answer the question. However, you are to choose the best answer; that is, the response that most accurately and completely answers the question. You should not make assumptions that are by commonsense standards implausible, superfluous, or incompatible with the passage.

4. The recent proliferation of newspaper articles in major publications that have been exposed as fabrications serves to bolster the contention that publishers are more interested in selling copy than in printing the truth. Even minor publications have staff to check such obvious fraud.

The above argument assumes that:

A. newspaper stories of dubious authenticity are a new phenomenon.

B. minor publications do a better job of fact checking than do major publications.

C. everything a newspaper prints must be factually verifiable.

D. only recently have newspapers admitted to publishing erroneous stories.

E. publishers are ultimately responsible for what is printed in their newspapers.
