It’s the weekend! Time to take a (short) break from your LSAT prep to relax. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely going to see The Master this weekend, since PT Anderson is probably the greatest filmmaker of our generation. You should all see it too!
Anyway, in honor of this movie, I’ve put together a fun new LSAT logic game. Enjoy!
Seven people have been stopped on the street for stress tests – Carl, Daniels, Eef, Flaquente, Geonkole, Horticulture, and Ittatitta. The people giving the stress tests hope to convert some of these people to Scientology. Anyone converted will be converted one at a time, first to last. The following conditions apply.
Carl is converted.
If Horticulture is converted, he is converted fourth.
If Eef is converted by the Scientologists, Flaquente is not.
If Geonkole is not converted, Flaquente is.
If Horticulture and Ittatitta are both converted, Ittatitta is converted immediately before Horticulture
If Carl and Daniels are both converted, Carl is converted at some time before Daniels.
