Learn some key word tips on resolving paradox questions in GMAT CR as given in a concept article by quizlet.com
6 terms on Resolving paradox on GMAT • Source: GMAT Critical Reasoning Bible published by quizlet.com

1. Stimulus Features
1) No conclusion - the author is not attempting to persuade you, just presenting two contradictory sets of facts,
2) language of contradiction (i.e. but, however, yet, although, paradoxically, surprisingly)

2. Question Stem Features
1) an indication that the answer choices should be accepted as true,
2) key words that indicate your task is to resolve a problem

3. Key word indicators
Action: resolve,
explain, reconcile.
Problem: paradox,
discrepancy, contradiction,
conflict, puzzle
Active Resolution
the correct answer will actively resolve the paradox, that is allow both sides to be factually correct, and will either explain how the situation came into being, or will add a piece of information that shows how the two ideas or occurences can coexist.

4. **Important**
if a stimulus contains a paradox where two items are similar, then an answer that explains a difference between the two cannot be correct. Similarily if a stimulus contains a paradox where two items are different, then an answer that explains a similarity cannot be correct.

5.Address the facts
always choose answer choices that conform to the specifics of the stimulus. Do not be lured by reasonable solutions that do not quite meet the stated facts.
