June 2007 LSAT, Game 3, #11

In my last post I created a setup for the third Game in the  June 2007 LSAT. I didn't make any huge brilliant inferences, but that's okay... I don't need to crush every game in order to finish four games in 35 minutes. I did crush Game 1, and I did well on Game 2. So if Game 3 ends up taking me a little longer, that's okay. I have plenty of time in the bank. Question 11 is a list question, which will enable me to check to make sure I understand all the rules properly. What I'm going to do here is test all the rules, in order, to eliminate answer choices. After testing all the rules, if I've done it correctly, I should be left with one and only one answer. If I am left with two answers, or if I eliminate all five answers, then that means I don't understand something properly. So I'm going to use this question to my advantage, to doublecheck that I'm on the right track.

(This will be the same technique I used on the first question of Game 2. This is an extremely common type of question... and it's an easy type of question, once you get used to it.)

Rule 1: J can't be fourth. This gets rid of D. I'll never have to look at D again on #11. All other answer choices pass this rule, so I don't have to think about this rule again on #11.

Rule 2:  T must be seventh. This gets rid of E. I'll never have to look at E again on #11. All the other answer choices pass this rule, so I don't have to think about this rule again on #11. I'm already down to just A, B, and C.

Rule 3:  M must go exactly twice, with at least one voyage to G between the two voyages to M. This gets rid of B. Answers A and C both pass this rule, and are the only two answers remaining.

Rule 4:  G must immediately precede every J. This gets rid of C. The only remaining answer is A. But before choosing A as my answer, I'm going to make sure I haven't effed anything up by checking the remaining rule.

Rule 5:  No destination scheduled for consecutive weeks. A doesn't break this rule. A has passed all the rules, and all the other answer choices have been eliminated. So A is our answer. Easy!
