Describe a typical type of reasoning flaw seen on the LSAT.
An example of a common flaw in reasoning is a casual flaw. This is when the author of an argument misunderstands the way two groups (sometimes two parts of a whole) are effecting each other. For example: Consider blue blocks which stack together to build a tower. It would be correct to say: the tower is blue, because the blocks are blue. If someone stated that the tower is blue causing the blocks to be blue, this would be incorrect, and would be an example of a casual flaw.
