# LSAT Rules – Either Or

By
Greg Smith

On the LSAT you will often encounter the terms “either, or” in both logical reasoning and analytical reasoning (logic games) questions.

### What exactly does “either, or” mean?

When you’re mother asks if you would like cake or pie for dessert she probably means one or the other, but not both. Well the LSAT is not your mother, and in this rare instance the LSAT actually gives you more. You get to have either cake or pie OR BOTH!

### Whenever you see “either A or B” on the LSAT it means you have have A or B or both A & B.

What about just OR?

Or works the same as either or. So A or B means A or B or both.

The exception!

Sometimes an LSAT question will specify that you have “either A or B, but not both.” Obviously in this case you cannot have both. This just gives you either A or B.
