The "speaker" was the well speaker. Someone didnt hear the speaker and in this case that someone is "she"

Problem with A is that is seems as though the speaker didn't hear himself.

I find it misleading because according to that book Im ready to score 800 but on mock tests and exampl...

The easiest and fastest method for me would be to chose and plug in a number. I let n=1 therefore in order for my avg to be 72% I would need a 74% on my next exam so only D gives the correct answer.

Hi nahid078, The correct answer is E . Most students will correctly eliminate A, B and D because of misplaced words and other egregious sentence structure problems. That leaves C and E to closely examine. C) Portable devices used for personal audio entertainment, such as digital cameras and cellula...

##### Paper and pencil

Hey Guys, Just a quick question. I remember when I did the GMAT a couple years ago I had a bad experience because they forced us to use a plastic sheet and a marker. That smudges the writing and instead of thin writing it was thick smudge. For a test so important as this we can't really afford to ma...

Hi prada, For a number to be a multiple of 990, that number must have the exact same prime factors (including duplicates) as 990 (but may have "extra" prime factors as well). This prompt adds the extra stipulation that N has to be as SMALL as possible, so after factoring 990, we need to f...

Hey Guys, maybe there is some concepts I am missing but how did Brent conclude that the angles of the triangle are 120 degrees? From there the vertices would be radii?
