### GMAT IR Cause/Effect Questions

by krithika1993 » Mon Sep 05, 2016 10:22 am
Hi there,

I'm having some difficulty answering IR questions that have to do with cause & effect. I manage to get the two responses correct but mix up the matching process (I choose the effect response to be the one that is really the cause, and vice versa). This question that I am attaching is quite confusing to me - the responses I've highlighted in the attachment are the responses I chose. The correct responses as per gmat.wiley.com were to have these switched for cause & effect. Could someone explain to me why their response is listed that way? I still think my response makes more sense. Please let me know. Thanks!
