Inequality

The official explanation is very long. When I met this question, I can't get the answer within 2 min, then I just guessed and moved. I can eliminate A, B, and D. But, out of time to combine both statements together. Expert, please help! If a and b are integers, and |a| > |b|, is a · |b| < a – b? ...

These bad things were mystery to followers who perceived the deity as all-powerful and all-good. P3. New famous statements: "If God is God, He is not good" "If God is goo...

Tough one from Kaplan

I can eliminate the 4 wrong answers, but I cannot find any relevant evidence on the passage to support the OA. Any idea??? Careful observers of wildlife along unspoiled freshwater shorelines in New england may encounter the river otter (Lutra Canadensis) or its close cousin, the mink (Mustela Vison)...

This question requires a pure logical concept (and I guess, not common in GMAT). Hereis the concept: To affirm the conclusion: A --> B If-then only tells us 2 things: 1) If A is true, then B is true as well 2) If B is false, then A is false as well (contrapositive) In this case, IMP --> GS ~SL --> ~...

This is one of 1000 CR questions.

I also picked C. I dont understand why the OA is B.
The conclusion is "brain scan CAN be used to determine who is likely to develop parkinson disease". So, I think B is out of scope.

Need the explanation from the expert T_T
