Certain question types in C.R. appear more frequently than the others. For example strengthening/weakening and inference. I am sure you know that! What helped me was to focus on more frequently appearing question types and with time I learned on which questions I needed to draw the map and which que...

Guess we could take the reverse route and see if we can eliminate by statements by proving insufficiency. S1. j = k+1. try picking nos. (2,3) (3,4) (4,5) you'll also find that they're consecutive integers. The integers being odd and even the greatest common factor is always 1. So 1 always being the ...

That assumption of considering 5 twice as an example of considering all prime factors would be incorrect. If I asked you the prime factors of 24, they'd be 2 and 3. not 2,2,3 etc. Same way, 25 has only one prime factor 5. Not 5 and 5. Therefore, in this case if r = 18 and S = 24, the prime factors 2...

Any easy approach would be to pick numbers for the algebraic values. And in most problem solving questions, answer choices itself provides us with clues on what numbers to pick! In this question we need the smallest positive integer value for k right, so that k+n is a multiple of 35? We can start by...
