Will Four Years Make a Difference?

Hey everybody. I may as well get this off my chest right now...I'm a high school senior, and I'm already thinking about law school. I know that I'm not even in college yet, and that odds are I'll probably change my mind regarding my field of study by that point; still, I'm a planner and like to see what the future has in store for me. Out of curiosity, I looked at some practice LSAT questions on the internet, and FOR THE LIFE OF ME just cannot figure out those analytical/logical reasoning questions or whatever they are called The ones that go...

There are five animals in the zoo.
A male and female chimpanzee live next to two hyenas.
An elephant lives to the side of rhinos, but only on Saturdays.
Rabbits live on the right, but only while drinking chocolate milk.

Which combination is most likely? blah blah blah blah blah



Alright, that didn't make sense, but you get the picture (that's basically what they look like to me). I usually score very well on standardized tests, but have never fared well with questions like these. My question being, is this the type of thing where you either have it or you don't? Or can you practice these questions and show significant improvements? Thanks.

    You practice these questions and show significant improvement. Thanks. (the beauty of copying and pasting --didn't have to type.)

    Agree, like most exams, the material yields to time. Patterns repeat and you need to have a systematic approach to the problems (LSAT review books detail some of these approaches).

    Of course, some humans are just not quick at pattern-recognition.
