My answer was D but OA is E. I had read somewhere that "so as to" is always wrong. But as per the OE, it is correct. "Enough as to" is also not wrong. I am unable to understand the difference. Source is MGMAT Test. Below is the OE. Please explain it to me if you are able to understand this. The idio...

Totally agree with anshulseth. Since the stem talks about cost, the assumption should hit the cost. Option C says that the country would buy if the cost was lower. This covers cost and all the other factors. Regarding the option B: Let's assume that the quality was good. Then? If there are certain i...

Guys, my 2 cents on this. You will force your mind to burn-out if you set targets like these. Don't set your targets in terms of number of questions to be done or scores. Little pressure is good but too much can harm you. maihunna is not completely wrong. If you are planning to spend long hours (or ...

I took the first GMATPrep and then did the first one again. Very few questions were repeated. Then I took the second test and none of the questions were repeated from the first test. I was delighted - It's really helpful in verbal. I am planning to take the second test again 2-3 days before the actu...

The explanation is right and you are also partially correct. If you read the explanation carefully, no noun that is properly modified. "Using" cannot modify "disease". Does not make sense. The disease is not using the techniques. The doctor (a noun) uses the technique, which is not there in the firs...

Correct - It distorts the meaning. The original sentence implies that the papers were important "being" body of work in political science. In other words, the property of the papers that they were "body of work in Political science", makes them important. Option D means that their importance was sam...

I know what you are talking about. I was confused in the same way. First is fine with fewer hence the second should be fewer as well since number can be counted. I use this rule to resolve such cases- Consider the word to which fewer/less applies. 1 species of frog, 2 species of frog.. makes sense r...
