Are You Implying Something!?

If you’re at the beginning of your LSAT odyssey (and a bunch of you no doubt are), then you’re just learning about implication questions. That is, you’re examining the techniques to tackle questions where the correct answer choice is based on what can or cannot be logically proven by the stimulus.

This is the first place where many get tripped up. They fight the stimulus. The stimulus will say that “all people who drink beer wear pants,” but just last weekend a friend of theirs drank lots of beer and (you guessed it) hastily disrobed. You cannot take this attitude into an implication question and expect to do well (no matter how entertaining your drunk friends are).
