To answer your questions; 1) This is an assumption question. It is asks you to determine what piece of evidence is absent, but must also be true for the conclusion to be true. 2) The argument says that per acre yield of winter wheat will be lower on average than that of spring wheat. The argument al...

The question is basically asking if p is a prime number.

1) No number between 31 and 37 is prime, so sufficient.
2) There odd numbers that are prime and not prime, so insufficient.

A

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Jared

From the question you should be able to determine that the circumstances are only true when a and b are both positive or both negative and that if they are both positive or both negative, then they are in a different quadrants based on whether they are positive or negative. So we must ask ourselves ...

My two cents; One important number's property principle to remember, the product of a set of integers will be even if the number of negative numbers in that set is 0 or even. Rephrase this question, is there an even number of negative numbers in the set (or none at all). a. tells us that the first a...

The answer is clearly (e). However, isn't this a bad question though? Stmt 1 suggests x = odd. Stmt 2 suggests x = even Aren't the two statements suppose to be consistent? Statement 1 definetly indicates that x must be an odd number. But statemnt two does not. Statement 2 merely says that if you ad...

OA is E? The reason I think so is because; 1) Tells us x must be odd. So x could = 57, 59, 61, 63, or 65. Obviously insufficient. 2) Tells us that x plus 1 is divisible by three. So, x must be 1 less than nubmers divisible by 3. You could also rephrase this to say that when x is divided by three the...

The OA is C. If the sequence is AP, then ans is C.. but the sequence can be AP or GP or HP... so why did we assume the sequence to be AP.. Can somebody explain? Think about the average of anything; Average = (sum of terms/# of terms) The question asks us what the # of terms is. 1) Average = (3124)/...

Just in case you wanted to see it alebraically; z=zachary w=walter 1) z=2(w-5) We don't know z or w, so (1) is insufficient. 2) w-z<3 We don't know z or w, so (2) is insufficient. (1) and (2), tell us; w-[2(5-w)]<3 w-(10-2w)<3 w-10+2w<3 3w<13 w<(13/3) Thus, 0<w<13/3, we cannot say for sure hold old ...

The question tells us; Known factors of; x = 2 * 3, ... y = 2 * 7, ... 105=2*5*7 The question rephrased is; is 5 a factor of x or y. 1) This simply tells us that x has 3^2 as a factor. This does not tell us there is a 5 so it does not answer the question. Insufficient. 2) This tells us y has 5^2 as...

This is a number properties question. As noted above the equation simplifies to 2k+3m=t One important number properties rule is; A multiple of n plus a multiple of n will sum to another multiple of n. Algebraic example, 3x+3y = 3(x+y) 1) k is a multiple of 3. 3m is obviously a multiple of 3 and if k...
