You were serious?
Your comment seemed pretty rude to me, so I rewatched the video, and I think I spent more time elaborating upon the difference between those two choices than I've spent on any other answer choices anywhere else in the course.
Given the length of my explanation, I thought you were remarking jokingly on that fact.
I am here to help. So, what did you find confusing?
In no way did I intend to be rude. Apologies you took it that way - I felt you were making light of the fact that I did not understand your explanation. I will continue this discussion in a private message. Thank you for your reply.
I understand why D is the right answer because of the conditional relationship. I am just curious if language cues in the answer choices come into play at all with conditionals. Should we treat any of the conditionals differently because they say "some" vs "no"?
Can we disregard the load-bearing and soft language when we have a conditional statement?
Or when the question asks which of the following must be true, can we assume the correct answer will also be an absolute with regards to the language? If this is true, couldn't we dismiss choice C right off the bat?
1. If it happens in just some cases, it isn't a conditional relationship, so yes, do treat it properly as separate.
2. No. Notice that our Inference Math points to the relationship between conditional and soft language.
3. No way! In fact, normally the opposite. Remember our expectiations on language cues (you may find it helpful to revisit the Theory videos on Inference questions, too, for more background).
I think I am seeing where I got tripped up.
The first statement is about most pet stores selling birds and most of those that sell birds also sell fish. That is sort of extra information. We don't need it for the conditionals that follow.
Is that the case?
