Crowdsourcing the June 2013 LSAT: June 2013 LSAT Explanation Central | About this project If you struggled at all with questions 1-7, odds are that you didn't quite catch the main point of the passage. Here's my summary, if you need a refresher.
Another one I can't predict. I've just gotta go into the answer choices and find an answer that has been stated, or most strongly implied, by the passage.
A. I don't think the passage went so far as to say “customers will definitely get what they want.” The passage was focused on what the farmer will get, not on what the customer will get.
B. The passage definitely said this. It's boring, it's obvious, and I'm 99 percent sure that this will be the answer.
C. The passage said that a CMC would need at least 1,000 people”¦ not that every 1,000 people can support a CMC. This is out.
D. Haha, no. “Wear and tear on vehicles” was never at issue.
E. The passage said nothing about the initial purpose of hard-surfaced roads. It might have been for farmers, it might have been for the postman, it might have been for Ronald McDonald, for all we know.
Our answer is B, because it's taken directly from the passage.
