I dont know whether following types of questions come in the GMAT. But these are present in the 1000 CR.

Which of the following best completes the passage below?
At large amusement parks, live shows are used very deliberately to influence crowd movements. Lunchtime performances relieve the pressure on a park’s restaurants. Evening performances have a rather different purpose: to encourage visitors to stay for supper. Behind this surface divergence in immediate purpose there is the unified underlying goal of______
(A) keeping the lines at the various rides short by drawing off part of the crowd
(B) enhancing revenue by attracting people who come only for the live shows and then leave the park
(C) avoiding as far as possible traffic jams caused by visitors entering or leaving the park
(D) encouraging as many people as possible to come to the park in order to eat at the restaurants
(E) utilizing the restaurants at optimal levels for as much of the day as possible

Please post explainations also.

(A) keeping the lines at the various rides short by drawing off part of the crowd irrelevant to the argument
(B) enhancing revenue by attracting people who come only for the live shows and then leave the park once people come through the gates, they have paid already, the revenue won't go up if they stay.
(C) avoiding as far as possible traffic jams caused by visitors entering or leaving the park irrelevant to the argument.
(D) encouraging as many people as possible to come to the park in order to eat at the restaurants but at lunchtime they have to purposefully diverge people from restaurants to the live shows
(E) utilizing the restaurants at optimal levels for as much of the day as possible bingo, lunchtime the restaurant is already at optimal level, and in the evening they want to use the restaurant too, hence the evening shows to keep people for summer. this is the underlying goal
