Or the dachshunds in #3 (confusingly goes against common knowledge).
Aye .. Question 4 was the most confusing for me, I got 2 wrong I believe in that .. the easiest being the last ones, Questions 6 and 7

Well, 25/26 on my second go .. 4e)..

2. It says I got 16/18... because I answered most of the letter ones with "I don't know." I couldn't figure it out at all when it was just letters. The only two I got wrong were the ones with letters instead of ideas (which I wasn't sure of the relationship between anyway). So I can't figure out pure logic, but I can see patterns clearly if I have some kind of an anchor.

The problem with the letters, to me, is that I can't figure out how to infer any kind of relationship between the premises given (I know it was possible, I just couldn't do it). All the premises seemed completely unrelated to one another, and I couldn't see how they were grouped. Thus, I couldn't see where any of the conclusions came from.

Yeah, in real life, but you gotta realize this is the internetz.

6. Lmao, you just said good things take time, which this is also the internet?!?

7. Question is, when is someone going to ask the inevitable?

8. 1) The author of this test uses natural language but divorces it from its natural meaning, and he does so without warning .

2) I've not studied much Aristotelian logic, but the premises of #5 seem inconsistent. Shouldn't everything follow from #5's premises?

9. 5a) Doesn't follow: Minimal missing premise: It exists something that is A and B and D or A and not C

5c) Doesn't follow: Minimal missing premise: It exists something that is A and not C or B and not C

5d) Doesn't follow: Minimal missing premise: It exists something that is A and D or A and not C
