I agree with the answer, but not the reason why (b) and (e) are wrong. There will be cases in which we insert a word between "but" and "also", but only when doing so is necessary to preserve the meaning or paralellism of the rest of the sentence. For example: "Not only does Bob go to the gym 3 morn...

If you keep on doing things the same way, you'll get the same results. I had to fundamentally change the way I studied to move be...

this question is now in gmatprep Q pack-1 OA is (A). (D) is wrong. Reasoning given in gmatprep explanation is as follows: the series of two preps – ‘of’ and ‘by’ – is awkward. Also ‘for’ is incorrect preposition to describe the connection between burning calories and generating heat .

No, not necessarily true or false. It only solidifies the possibility of the conclusion. The fact in B is - when cause(feel of money power) doesn't happen, effect(more tip) doesn't happen. This fact strengthens the conclusion. If you have CR bible, see the section in which it describes how to streng...

Great score megadeth. Congratulations! I see that you have Q51. I can make out that math must be easier for you being an IITian. But did you use any material other than OG for math? Did you prepare in any specific way? I will appreciate any tips/ideas. I am currently getting stuck on Q-49/50. Thanks...

Think about the argument as a two-connection cause & effect scenario. (Visual of CC logo) --causes--> (feeling of more money power) --causes--> (more tip) (B) shows that when (feeling of more money power) is absent, (more tip) is absent. i.e. when cause doesn’t happen, effect doesn’t happen.

even though integrated reasoning, which is one of the additions in gmat prep2.0, doesn't go live until june5th, gmat prep2.0 also has 90 new practice questions that don't overlap with any of the OGs and gmat prep1.0. So those new questions may be useful in the preparation.

Hi Payal Thanks for the explanation and for sharing the grammar link. It was very useful. You talked about the difference between : appear to have been equipped & appear as equipped. Is "appear as equipped" correct? appear to have been - here 'have been' is a form of to be. so i think it should be '...

Hi Stuart, You mentioned that For (a) to make sense, it would have to begin "what is as remarkable as", Does this mean that 2 verb tenses in (A) should be the same? or only one verb should be used? I am having difficulty in understanding the basic structure of the sentence in a simplified form. I tr...
