Must be true (MBT)

Hi:

When the stimulus is conditional oriented, I do well on this question type. However, when there are no conditional statements, I am totally lost.

Can someone please give me assistance???

    In addition to that I always try to think if the other choices could be eliminated in any possible way. It's not that that hey have to be false, but could they be sometimes... A MBT has to be true all of the time in all conditions outlined by the stimulus. Once I started of thinking of the within that framework I improved on these quickly.

    @Martin01 Do you have an example of a question that gives you trouble? Most MBT questions are based on conditional reasoning but it's sometimes a little hard to see it as such

    for MBT I really critically analyze each answer choice and pay attention to the language. A lot of incorrect answer choices go to far ie: X never did Y, No Y is X, etc. Pay attention to how strong the language is and see if there is enough support to make that conclusion in the answer choice.
