You will notice that the format of the questions is identical to those
on the quizzes. You might wish to review the Sample
Quizzes to review for the Logic Exam.
1. Either we shall reject Communism to live like the rest of the world, or we shall continue to be the "Socialist choice." But if we continue to be the "Socialist choice," we will continue to live like pigs. On the other hand, if we reject Communism, we face a path that is uncharted and difficult.--adapted from Aleksandr Rutskoy, former Vice-President, Russian Republic
2. That first computer I had back in the late 80s was so slow
it was virtually useless. Then the one I got next--the one with the
graphical interface--looked nice, but couldn't really do any high-powered
tasks. The "business oriented" computer I replaced it with had the
power I needed, but after the third power supply burned up I got rid of
it too. Then my last one had that problem with calculation errors
that got so much attention in the press. My experience alone is enough
to show that computers are highly overrated as real tools to accomplish
Note: to guarantee accurate characters across the web, I've used these
symbols (which differ slightly from the ones used in the text):
~ = not
---> = if/then
& = and
v = either/or
1. p & q.
(s v r) ---> ~t.
q ---> (~p v s).
2. No P1s are P2s.
All P3s are P2s.
m is not a P2.
m is a P1.
1. If you don't let me select the cover for the memory book, I might just have a talk with the other club members. I've got quite a pull with them, and it would be too bad if you couldn't sell any of the books after spending all of that money on them.
2. Of course I know why I played so poorly in the game this afternoon, Coach! I wasn't wearing my lucky socks. I didn't have a chance.
3. People who are opposed to open immigration into the U.S. don't
really even deserve a serious response. After all, their supposedly
serious objections to letting "foreigners" in to the United States to enjoy
the benefits of freedom and economic opportunity are just fancy--and disguised--versions
