• why is the full length lsat diagnostic exam results and explanation for incorrect answers not stored in my profile after I select to start a study path? It seems as though the full length test I did was just wasted if I cannot go back to my incorrect answers later on.
• That is solely for you to get an idea of how you did. You will have a lot more practice material elsewhere. Your life isn't dependent on the question from the diagnostic test.
• From the first rule it looks like the set up should be F...G...G...F. The rule says Frank does "exactly one" task before Gladys demonstrates any of the tasks. Shouldn't this mean his second task can't be done before Gladys finish both her tasks? Based on the answer you provided the rule should have said Frank does exactly one task before Gladys does one task.
• No, since Frank does exactly one task before Gladys demonstrates any, a single task performed by Gladys is enough to satisfy the condition.

F-G-G-F and F-G-F-G both satisfy the condition of Gladys demonstrating any task before Frank demonstrates his second.
• I need clarification on a rule. The stimulus stated no two tasks will be demonstrated concurrently. Since there are 6 tasks and each one is demonstrated, I am making the deduction that no two tasks will be demonstrated concurrently by the same volunteer. If this is the case, then Leslie can not be second, therefore Frank must be second.
• The statement that no two tasks will be demonstrated concurrently just means that no two tasks will happen at the same time (ie each task has its own time slot). The stimulus never gives a rule stating that the same volunteer cannot perform a task one right after the other. So it is incorrect to deduce that Leslie cannot perform both the first and second task.
• I would have liked to have seen a worked video example also on a (grouping + grouping) question as well...
• Is there some way to print a copy of the games used in these videos?
• From the rule stated at the beginning, it looks as though Frank cannot execute his second task before Gladys does any of her tasks. But it is not clear on whether Gladys must do both her tasks or just one of her tasks before Frank can do his second. Because this is a scenario of either F...G...F...G or F...G...G...F, then when looking at rule 2, we can deduce that the scenario must be F...G...F...G, since F cannot go last. Is that correct?
• I believe that both F...G...G...F, and F...G...F...G are still possible if L goes last. I'm not seeing enough in the set-up alone to determine the exact F and G order just yet.

• It's probably due to necessity, but I don't like when you erase things.
It can't be done in notes (at least in the moment), and won't be an option on test day...so the notes and what little scrap paper we're allowed to bring end up being a bloody mess.
Show it as we will be able to do it in notes/on test day.

• Why does Frank's second task have to be behind Gladius' first task? Can't it after Leslie? If we are just looking at the first rule?

• The rule doesn't state the F's second task is immediately after G's, we can just deduce that is is somewhere after G's first task. I believe you are correct that L could follow G's first task if that task is in slot 3.

• This there a way to print/download this like a pdf to be used as a worksheet for better note taking?

• Yeah there is.
