    Dear all,
    I got few questions wrong but I do not know the reasons why I am incorrect. If you have time please help me out in explaining the reason for the correct answers.

    Correct answer at end of the post.

    Regards
    Suresh G
    -----------------------------------------

    Question 1: My answer was C.
    A recent report determined that although only three percent of drivers on Maryland highways equipped their vehicles with radar detectors, thirty-three percent of all vehicles ticketed for exceeding the speed limit were equipped with them. Clearly, drivers who equip their vehicles with radar detectors are more likely to exceed the speed limit regularly than are drivers who do not.
    The conclusion drawn above depends on which of the following assumptions?
    (A) Drivers who equip their vehicles with radar detectors are less likely to be ticketed for exceeding the speed limit than are drivers who do not.
    (B) Drivers who are ticketed for exceeding the speed limit are more likely to exceed the speed limit regularly than are drivers who are not ticketed.
    (C) The number of vehicles that were ticketed for exceeding the speed limit was greater than the number of vehicles that were equipped with radar detectors.
    (D) Many of the vehicles that were ticketed for exceeding the speed limit were ticketed more than once in the time period covered by the report.
    (E) Drivers on Maryland highways exceeded the speed limit more often than did drivers on other state highways not covered in the report.

    Question 1: My answer was C.
    Researchers have found that when very overweight people, who tend to have relatively low metabolic rates, lose weight primarily through dieting, their metabolisms generally remain unchanged. They will thus burn significantly fewer calories at the new weight than do people whose weight is normally at that level. Such newly thin persons will, therefore, ultimately regain weight until their body size again matches their metabolic rate.
    The conclusion of the argument above depends on which of the following assumptions?
    (A) Relatively few very overweight people who have dieted down to a new weight tend to continue to consume substantially fewer calories than do people whose normal weight is at that level.
    (B) The metabolisms of people who are usually not overweight are much more able to vary than the metabolisms of people who have been very overweight.
    (C) The amount of calories that a person usually burns in a day is determined more by the amount that is consumed that day than by the current weight of the individual.
    (D) Researchers have not yet determined whether the metabolic rates of formerly very overweight individuals can be accelerated by means of chemical agents.
    (E) Because of the constancy of their metabolic rates, people who are at their usual weight normally have as much difficulty gaining weight as they do losing it.

    Question 1: My answer was A
    In 1987 sinusitis was the most common chronic medical condition in the United States, followed by arthritis and high blood pressure, in that order.
    The incidence rates for both arthritis and high blood pressure increase with age, but the incidence rate for sinusitis is the same for people of all ages.
    The average age of the United States population will increase between 1987 and 2000.

    Which of the following conclusions can be most properly drawn about chronic medical conditions in the United States from the information given above?
    (A) Sinusitis will be more common than either arthritis or high blood pressure in 2000.
    (B) Arthritis will be the most common chronic medical condition in 2000.
    (C) The average age of people suffering from sinusitis will increase between 1987 and 2000.
    (D) Fewer people will suffer from sinusitis in 2000 than suffered from it in 1987.
    (E) A majority of the population will suffer from at least one of the medical conditions mentioned above by the year 2000.

    Split your questions into individual posts: one question per post. That way, the discussion remains focussed and also make it easier for people who search for stuff.
