What are the most common question types on LR, as in the types such as weakening, principle etc that appear the most often on the test. We know what the most common LG types are, I'm just wondering if there are also any hard statistics for LR?

    I remember my old lsat prep course providing us a percentages pie chart of all the question types. I believe assumption types are probably the most prevalent.

    you see a lot of:
    flaws and inferences (4~6) > necessary/sufficient assumptions (2~5)> strengthen/weaken questions (2~4) > supporting principles, conclusions, main point, disagreement, explain discrepancy, matching flaw/reasoning, and functions (0~2)

    This is what seems to occur generally

    Fundamentally, you want to work on identifying assumptions. Besides the technical assumption questions (sufficient and necessary), other questions are testing this ability. For example, a strengthen question can be relying on your capacity to find the argument's gap and fill it.
