I couldn’t find much to say about the wrong answers. They aren’t in the passage. They show why it’s important to find what you’re looking for in the passage before looking at the answers. The LSAT is very good at tricking you if you don’t.
It isn’t always possible to find the answer in the passage first, but this question asks for a very specific detail.
- CORRECT. Republicans could get in trouble if they praised the revolution.
- This isn’t said anywhere. Make sure you can support answers using the passage.
- This might have been true, but it’s not mentioned anywhere.
- We’re not told what republicans wanted. All we know is that they risked trouble if they published memoirs.
- Find me a line that mentions republicans’ professions. (it doesn’t exist)
