Can anyone please explain how 'C' can conclusively be inferred as the most appropriate option? More and more kids are coming to the nurses office. The author argues that this can only be explained by greater exposure or greater sensitivity. So, he must be assuming that there aren't any other explan...

Does Questionable assumption is it of the format "All the below are all assumptions EXCEPT"?? Hi gmatmachoman, Definitely not. A "questionable assumption" is the same as any plain jane necessary assumption question. For the bank's technology to work, generally available scanners can't get better at...

One way of finding assumptions is to negate an objection to the argument. This argument is: I "we should reduce their salary because it's too high for the tasks normally assigned to new employees." and II "we should simplify their tasks because their duties are too complicated for inexperienced work...

@Munda: (A) reads: (A) People's rights are violated less when they are denied an available medical treatment they need because they lack the means to pay for it than when they are denied such treatment on noneconomic grounds. Schilling is the private guy. LaForte is the national guy. It's easier to ...

This is a relevant information question. The right answer is something where, if it goes one way, the argument is strengthened, and if it goes the other way the argument is weakened (as such, we can call these "hybrid strengthen/weaken" questions). A good paraphrase of the argument would be: "Don't ...

The stem is easy to comprehend but the question is real tough. Can someone kindly help me re-write the question in a easy to understand format???

@David@VeritasPrep: An observation about LSAT questions -> Somehow I find LSAT questions easier than GMAT questions mainly first 15 questions. If you look at the question above, in one go answer pops out easily; however, GMAT questions tough ones are more convoluted. Of course, last 10 LSAT questio...

Well, this question seems "home-made" to me. Practicing on flawed questions will lead one to have a flawed understanding of the test; so practicing on such questions can hurt your score (more than it can help). What makes this question so bad? Well, where to start--at least three reasons jump off th...

@Munda--I see where you're coming from. You are correct that the last clause of the stimulus is an appositive but it is not JUST an appositive. What role does that last clause play in the arguer's reasoning? If we look at the argument's structure, we see that the first two sentences provide reasons ...

@everyone: the correct answer is definitely (B) as both Stuart and Kevin pointed out. As Stuart pointed out, the question is fine but the source for the OA is bad. @kkckc--those aren't assumptions. Instead, they are STATED evidence (assumptions are UNSTATED). ** @mundasingh--the stimulus DOES say th...

I am interested in learning different approaches to solving this problem. If x ≠ -y, is (x-y)/(x+y) > 1? 1. x >0 2. y< 0 OA = E You can pick numbers but you can also use some reasoning. What really helps here is knowing that in DS inequality questions, GMAT is often testing your knowledge of the ...
