Sample LSAT-Flex Practice Questions

Want to try your hand at a few LSAT practice questions before diving into the full testing experience? No problem! Here are a few sample questions you can use to get your bearings! After you try them, check your answers and see expert explanations by following the links.

  • These questions come from the June 2007 practice test, so if you’re planning on using it as a diagnostic, we suggest you skip these here!
Question 1: Logical Reasoning

A cruise line is scheduling seven week-long voyages for the ship Freedom. Each voyage will occur in exactly one of the first seven weeks of the season: weeks 1 through 7. Each voyage will be to exactly one of four destinations: Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique, or Trinidad. Each destination will be scheduled for at least one of the weeks.

The following conditions apply to Freedom’s schedule:

Jamaica will not be its destination in week 4.
Trinidad will be its destination in week 7.
Freedom will make exactly two voyages to Martinique, and at least one voyage to Guadeloupe will occur in some week between those two voyages.
Guadeloupe will be its destination in the week preceding any voyage it makes to Jamaica.
No destination will be scheduled for consecutive weeks.

1. Which one of the following is an acceptable schedule of destinations for Freedom, in order from week 1 through week 7?

A. Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Trinidad
B. Guadeloupe, Martinique, Trinidad, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Trinidad
C. Jamaica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Trinidad
D. Martinique, Trinidad, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Trinidad
E. Martinique, Trinidad, Guadeloupe, Trinidad, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique

Question 2: Logic Games

We should accept the proposal to demolish the old train station, because the local historical society, which vehemently opposes this, is dominated by people who have no commitment to long-term economic well-being. Preserving old buildings creates an impediment to new development, which is critical to economic health.

2. The flawed reasoning exhibited by the argument above is most similar to that exhibited by which one of the following arguments?

A. Our country should attempt to safeguard works of art that it deems to possess national cultural significance. These works might not be recognized as such by all taxpayers, or even all critics. Nevertheless, our country ought to expend whatever money is needed to procure all such works as they become available.

B. Documents of importance to local heritage should be properly preserved and archived for the sake of future generations. For, if even one of these documents is damaged or lost, the integrity of the historical record as a whole will be damaged.

C. You should have your hair cut no more than once a month. After all, beauticians suggest that their customers have their hair cut twice a month, and they do this as a way of generating more business for themselves.

D. The committee should endorse the plan to postpone construction of the new expressway. Many residents of the neighborhoods that would be affected are fervently opposed to that construction, and the committee is obligated to avoid alienating those residents.

E. One should not borrow even small amounts of money unless it is absolutely necessary. Once one borrows a few dollars, the interest starts to accumulate. The longer one takes to repay, the more one ends up owing, and eventually a small debt has become a large one.

Question 3: Reading Comprehension

The two passages discuss recent scientific research on music. They are adapted from two different papers presented at a scholarly conference.

Passage A
Did music and human language originate separately or together? Both systems use intonation and rhythm to communicate emotions. Both can be produced vocally or with tools, and people can produce both music and language silently to themselves.

Brain imaging studies suggest that music and language are part of one large, vastly complicated, neurological system for processing sound. In fact, fewer differences than similarities exist between the neurological processing of the two. One could think of the two activities as different radio programs that can be broadcast over the same hardware. One noteworthy difference, though, is that, generally speaking, people are better at language than music. In music, anyone can listen easily enough, but most people do not perform well, and in many cultures composition is left to specialists. In language, by contrast, nearly everyone actively performs and composes.

Given their shared neurological basis, it appears that music and language evolved together as brain size increased over the course of hominid evolution. But the primacy of language over music that we can observe today suggests that language, not music, was the primary function natural selection operated on. Music, it would seem, had little adaptive value of its own, and most likely developed on the coattails of language.

Passage B
Darwin claimed that since “neither the enjoyment nor the capacity of producing musical notes are faculties of the least [practical] use to manthey must be ranked amongst the most mysterious with which he is endowed.” I suggest that the enjoyment of and the capacity to produce musical notes are faculties of indispensable use to mothers and their infants and that it is in the emotional bonds created by the interaction of mother and child that we can discover the evolutionary origins of human music.

Even excluding lullabies, which parents sing to infants, human mothers and infants under six months of age engage in ritualized, sequential behaviors, involving vocal, facial, and bodily interactions. Using face-to-face mother-infant interactions filmed at 24 frames per second, researchers have shown that mothers and infants jointly construct mutually improvised interactions in which each partner tracks the actions of the other. Such episodes last from one-half second to three seconds and are composed of musical elements—variations in pitch, rhythm, timbre, volume, and tempo.

What evolutionary advantage would such behavior have? In the course of hominid evolution, brain size increased rapidly. Contemporaneously, the increase in bipedality caused the birth canal to narrow. This resulted in hominid infants being born ever-more prematurely, leaving them much more helpless at birth. This helplessness necessitated longer, better maternal care. Under such conditions, the emotional bonds created in the premusical mother-infant interactions we observe in Homo sapiens today—behavior whose neurological basis essentially constitutes the capacity to make and enjoy music—would have conferred considerable evolutionary advantage.

3. Both passages were written primarily in order to answer which one of the following questions?
A. What evolutionary advantage did larger brain size confer on early hominids?

B. Why do human mothers and infants engage in bonding behavior that is composed of musical elements?

C. What are the evolutionary origins of the human ability to make music?

D. Do the human abilities to make music and to use language depend on the same neurological systems?

E. Why are most people more adept at using language than they are at making music?

How to Take an LSAT-Flex Practice Test

Working through an LSAT piecemeal—one section on the bus, the next during dinner—won’t prepare you for the endurance you’ll need on test day. Instead, use the following guidelines to make sure your environment is as test-like as possible.

  • Pick the right place
    It’s important to practice in a quiet, calm environment where you won’t be disturbed—just like on test day.

  • Time yourself
    You won’t get an accurate sense of your current abilities on the LSAT unless you stick to the official timing guidelines. If you’re taking the test digitally, you won’t need a timer; there’s an official countdown timer on-screen that will tell you how long you have left in the section of the LSAT. If you are taking a paper practice test, make sure to have a watch or timer handy. Don’t use the one on your phone, as you won’t be able to have your phone in the room on test day (and it’s distracting!).
     
  • Understand the differences between this LSAT practice test and the official exam
    While the content on this test is exactly like what you’ll see on test day, there are two key differences to remember.

    First, this test doesn’t have a variable section. This won’t affect your score—after all, the variable section is unscored—but it will make the actual exam slightly longer.

    Second, even though taking a practice exam can be stressful, it’s still not as stressful as your actual test date, where you’ll be in an unfamiliar environment. You can prepare for this, though (see the first bullet point above) by working in a library or other calm setting.

How to Adapt Official LSAC Questions for LSAT-Flex

If you’re taking the LSAT between 2020 and April 2021, you’ll be taking the LSAT-Flex. This is an at-home version of the LSAT designed to let future lawyers take the exam safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the LSAT-Flex test is slight different from the in-person LSAT exam. But it is still a standardized test, so you can adapt it accordingly! The LSAT-Flex has three, not five, 35-minute sections. In addition, all sections are scored. The in-person tests includes two Logical Reasoning sections as well as an unscored, experimental section, which varies from test to test. The LSAT-Flex has only one LR section and no experimental section.

You won’t need to adapt the questions themselves to practice for the LSAT-Flex; those will be the same types of multiple choice questions as on the in-person exam. However, you will need to adapt the sections.

To do this, take one fewer Logical Reasoning sections on the practice exam above. (It doesn’t contain a variable section, so you’re good there!)

Magoosh students also have the option to mimic an LSAT-Flex by choosing Custom Practice and then selecting one of each of the sections (making sure to do only 25 or 26 Logical Reasoning questions). Or you can do this by skipping one of the Logical Reasoning sections in practice test mode and using the chart on Magoosh’s LSAT Flex Score conversion table to calculate your scaled score from a raw score.

How to Score Your LSAT-Flex Practice Test

You’ve finished your free LSAT practice test—congratulations! What now? It’s time to score your work. Take a look at Magoosh’s explanations.

We have complete written explanations here and video explanations for each question here.

  • If you want to score your LSAT practice test as an LSAT-Flex, check out Magoosh’s LSAT Flex Score conversion table for info on how to do this! Remember that all sections on the LSAT-Flex are scored sections.

Then, find out how your score stacks up by reviewing how the LSAT scoring scale works (the LSAT-Flex scores will count incorrect answers similarly—see the starred point above) and checking out average LSAT scores at the top 100 law programs.

A lot of students leave their practice tests behind once they get their scores—but the highest-scoring students know that they can mine the test for even more information. After you take and grade your test, it’s time to review your practice LSAT. Using this exam as an LSAT diagnostic test will help you learn your strengths and target your weaknesses as you move forward.

Click here for tips on reviewing your LSAT practice test

Here are a few ways to make the most of your review:

  • Log your errors, including the question type you got wrong.
  • Jot down how you’d prevent any timing issues from happening on your next LSAT practice test. Examples include running out of time on a section, getting stuck and being unable to recover, or finishing with too much time at the end. (Yes, the last one can happen!)
  • If you were tripped up by unfamiliar words or concepts, incorporate them into flashcards.
  • Talk it out. If you did well on a particular question, explain to a study buddy, fellow students, or your tutor why the correct answer to that question is correct. This can help reinforce your thought process.
  • Give yourself a breather between this practice test and the next. Spend some time, ideally a week, practicing the content you struggled with before moving on.

LSAT Practice Test FAQ

How many official LSAT practice tests are there? How many LSAT practice tests should I take?

There are 77 numbered PrepTests from the LSAC (and yes, a Magoosh subscription does give you access to alllll of them!). But that doesn’t mean you need to—or even should—do one a day for the next two months!

In an ideal world, you would do 2-3 practice tests per week. In other words, we only recommend doing all of these PrepTests if you have nine months or more to study for the LSAT! Otherwise, adapt that recommendation to your own schedule or check out Magoosh’s LSAT study plans for expertly crafted study plans using these practice tests!

How long is the LSAT-Flex practice test?

The LSAT-Flex practice test is 105 minutes long (an hour and 45 minutes): it has three multiple choice sections that are 35 minutes long each. There’s no break on the official exam, so if you’re practicing under test-like conditions, don’t include a break there, either. The actual LSAT is a strictly timed test, so it’s important to work with actual time constraints as you practice—you don’t get a huge amount of time!

On the actual test, you can anticipate spending about two hours in front of your screen, including time for instructions at the beginning.

Remember that you’ll submit the writing sample separately for the official exam— there’s no need to spend the extra time immediately following your practice test!

How predictive is this practice test score for the actual LSAT?

This practice test contains actual LSAT questions that appeared on official previous tests—so it’s pretty predictive. Follow these tips for your best possible score on the official exam.

How much time do I need to prep for the LSAT?

That’s exactly what an LSAT practice test can help you figure out! How close are you to your score goals? How much study time do you have? When do you hope to enter law school? Take a look at Magoosh’s LSAT study plans to see which one best fits into your life right now.
