Hi all,

I would like to know if anyone has any certain tricks to tackle the CR questions on the verbal. CR is my only significant weak area on the Verbal. I have trouble narrowing down one assumption but have no problems in comprehension (since I almost get all the RC correct).

If anyone has any thoughts of how to approach the questions please advise!

Thanks all.

one rule of thumb is by negation..

if by negating the given statements, the main argument falls apart, it mean it is the assumption..

Hi mm007,

From the evidence and the conclusion in the given argument, we could also prephrase the assumption (the link between the two) and look for it in the answer choice.
