LSAT Practice Questions — Analytical Reasoning
Questions 4-6 are based on the following information:
Quantum, a specialty restaurant, is open for business every Monday through Saturday but is closed Sundays. Lunch is the only meal served on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Dinner is the only meal served on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant's floors are polished and its plants are watered only on days that Quantum is open for business, according the following policies:
Plants are watered two days each week, but never on consecutive days and never on the same day that floors are polished.
Floors are polished on Monday and two other days each week, but never on consecutive days and never on the same day that plants are watered.
Answer and Analysis
The correct response is (E). Given that floors are polished on Monday, they must also be polished on Tuesday and Wednesday (i.e., on three consecutive days). Since plants are not watered on consecutive days (that policy is unchanged), they must be watered on Thursday and Saturday. Neither task is performed on Friday.
