Test: LSAT Logical Reasoning

Movie critic: Films nowadays rely heavily on special effects and computer graphics to entertain audiences.   Fifty years ago, when such technology did not exist, films had to rely on well-written plots and dialogue to keep the audience’s attention. It is clear that today’s written screenplays are not held to the same standards they would have been fifty years ago.


The movie critic’s argument is flawed in that it

fails to consider the possibility that audience’s attention spans were longer fifty years ago, and thus they were more easily entertained

attacks modern screenplays on an aesthetic basis rather than a logical basis

downplays the importance of acting and directing in determining the box office success of films

assumes that the standards of written screenplays nowadays are lower based solely on the prevalence of special effects and computer graphics

provides no basis for the assertion that certain technology did not in fact exist fifty years ago
