The Zen task argumentative strategy employed is fairly easy to recognize even though it has a myriad of different key words that can be used in the question stem. The correct answer choice will be a restatement of the argument, with its various elements--premise, evidence, bridge, and conclusion--translated into "LSAT speak."
The following free Zen of 180 explanations are for the two sample PrepTests, from June 2007 and October 1996, although there was only one argumentative strategy employed question on the June 2007 LSAT. The question stem for this task requires extensive processing so you can be sure to focus on the correct speaker's point of view, especially when presented with a stimulus for two different authors.
Zen clients first read the question stem, determine which of the stimulus's arguments will be translated into "LSAT speak," and identify the premise, evidence, bridge, and conclusion as they read. Usually they highlight the conclusion, [bracket the bridge], and underline the key evidence, leaving the preface unmarked.
