Weaken, X

Artistic success as an actor is directly dependent on how well an actor has developed his craft. This has been demonstrated by the discovery of a positive relationship between the number of classes taken by an actor and the number of professional production in which that actor has appeared in the pa...

I agree with answer choice B; A is incorrect as this states that the misinterpretations are equally serious. C and D are out of scope. E is incorrect, because it is possible that another editor, who is neither early nor Johnson interpreted Dickinson's writing properly. This is quite an intriguing q...

Got it. Okay. This is basically a bad question. (I don't trust the GMAT Sets as a source, by the way. Some of the questions are fine - even great - but some are really not.) I'm sure whoever wrote this was trying to get at the idea that manatees are also endangered by boats. Manatees stay pretty cl...

the fact that the question is 1/(k-1) is only there to throw you off..... What is 1/(k-1) > 0 saying? It is saying that k - 1 > 0 The 1 on the top is insignificant because is has no bearing on whether it is negative or positive. So A) can be rephrased to k - 1 > 0 B) rephrased to k + 1 > 0 So in A)...

1. 1/(k-1) > 0 Then k - 1 > 0 k >1 Then 1/k > 0. Sufficient. When you go from 1/(k-1) to (k-1), don't you change the inequality sign? 2. 1/(k+1)>0 k+1>0 k>-1 Choose k = -1/2, then 1/k = -2. Choose k = 1/2, then 1/k = 2. Insufficient. When you go from 1/(k+1) to (k+1), don't you change the inequalit...
