LSAC tests questions (it "pre-equates" them) before using them—that's why you have an "experimental" section.
They remove questions from scoring when test-day performance on those questions varies significantly from their pre-test "equating".
In other words, more people got this question right (or wrong) on test day than got it right (or wrong) when it was tested before use as part of an experimental section on an earlier test.
This happens roughly one time every couple of calendar years (1 of every 600 questions, roughly).
Hi, I chose B for question 19, and after listening to the explanation, I was hoping you might be able to tell me if my thinking is correct. Even though there is a phenomenon described (the spiders fighting more often than the traditional theory describes), its discussing the why rather than just a presentation. yay or nay?
Yes, that's the big idea; your takeaway here should be that just because a passage does something doesn't make that thing its purpose. That idea will help for lots of future such questions that repeat bad answers like (B)!
I chose answer choice D. I thought it included the entire story as a whole whereas C included part of it. You mention in RC passage 1 of this same test that the answer choices will not include part of the answer but the whole. I’m so confused now.
