# Free LSAT Logic Game | Grouping: Matching

Disclaimer: This Logic Game is in no way meant to imply that all Indian students taking the LSAT are Hindu, nor is it meant to imply that Hindu students would ever pray to deities for LSAT assistance (or that they’re the only students who’d pray to Hindu deities for assistance). I’ve simply given the game this topic because I think Hindu deities are cool, and because I promised I’d write a logic game about non-Greek deities.

***

Here’s the Logic Game:

Exactly four students-Arjun, Bobby, Jason, and Puja-pray to exactly seven Hindu deities-Ganesha, Hanuman, Krishna, Lakshmi, Rama, Shiva, and Vishnu-for assistance in achieving top LSAT scores. No deity answers the prayers of all four students, but each deity answers at least one student’s prayer. The deities answer the students’ prayers according to the following conditions:

Neither Lakshmi nor Rama answers Bobby’s prayers, but Ganesha and Krishna both answer Bobby’s.

Hanuman, Krishna, and Shiva answer Puja’s prayers.

Hanuman answers at least three students’ prayers, but Krishna and exactly one other deity each answer exactly two students’ prayers.

If Vishnu answers a particular student’s prayer, Hanuman does not answer that student’s prayer.

If Ganesha answers a particular student’s prayer, Rama does not answer that student’s prayer.

Lakshmi answers at least one of the same students’ prayers as Vishnu does.

Make the deities your “base” – not the students. This will allow you to make inferences more easily.
