Can't be 2 and 3 because, "C always takes bus 3" (never 2). That last statement, "C always takes bus 3", is the defining one, as C is part of the group.

The LSAT is timed, and each section contains way more questions that you can possibly answer in the time allotted. Thus, the exam tests not merely the ability to arrive at the correct answer, but also the ability to seperate important from unimportant information quickly and confidently. Interestingly, it also tests the ability to know when to give up and move on. It's far better to say &quot;**** it&quot; to a hard question and then get the next three correct than it is to spend too much time on that one question and then miss out on several easy ones at the end.</p><p>It's an interesting test, and one that I actually enjoyed taking.&nbsp;</p>

<p>****, yeah,&nbsp;that's what i determined yesterday. &nbsp;I forgot, it's early, and they made me stand outside for a fire alarm already today.</p><p>i basically had read the question in reverse, i knew we had to determine something about 3 riders and figured out the bus combo based only on what was said about them.</p>

The design for the paper model of the cat can be downloaded here:

Tubbypaws

I used DuraSharp model 1400 scissors to cut it out, and an UHU glue stick to assemble it. Because, let's be honest- they may know precisely jack **** about building reliable cars, but the Germans have elevated adhesive technology to almost unimaginable heights. This glue stick has gotta be 10 years old at least, and it still works like new.

The rest of it is **** I have left over from various projects. The motor and gears were originally part of a pan/tilt head for surveillance cameras, it's powered by some random 24VAC wall-wart that I found in the closet, the flat parts at the top and bottom are cover plates for 4" electrical junction boxes, and the columns are made out of a bunch of the random spacers that come with LCD TV wall mounts all stacked together and sandwiched with some 3" machine screws which were grabbed out of the large bag of random machine screws that I keep in my desk.





It's literally just something that I threw together out of parts at hand, unlike, say, the labyrinth of tracks, tunnels and rooms which lie beneath Grand Central Terminal and stretch out across midtown Manhattan:
