I am aware of this type of problem not on the GMAT but this is just an inquiry I had.

Is it really that confusing with a decimal response as the solution?

I am so confused about this too. Is that correct as the previous submitted answer of 50 seemed alright too!

Hey GmatMathPro,

Thanks for catching my little error there.
I initially just tried #'s to test it out and in the end, though at an ambivalence, I chose E as the correct answer.



Thanks to everyone on this thread!

Hey Gokhra, I had gotten E too but checked it a different way with rewriting it as: is f^2> f^2-f ? When you put in a positive >1, you get the result yes when you put in a positive <1, you get the result yes too say you use a 1/2, you would get is 1/4 > (1/4-1/2) ? and then have 1/4 > -1/4, that too...

A REALly confusing problem!

Given: f not equal to 1, is f^2/(f-1) > f ?

1) f is not an integer
2) f > 0

Please list your work and conclusion, I came to two answers.

Broadening and feigning(Like: hissing and rearing) modifies the bluff

Leaving just choices C and E and in choice E, the"but with no fangs" modifies the "strikes", hence,

choice C is the best option.

I'm going to say C as A and D are both wrong with the semicolon. It should be a comma

The gist of the sentence IMO is: The chairman of the board,....., should not be responsible, though many have ....... he should.

A and B are the correct answers and in the future, please feature the underlined portioned(Bold would help too) and omit the parentheses as they are confusing
