If this question is from material that's in a book or some other form sanctioned by GMAC, then it's probably OK. It's NOT a good idea to disclose questions from actual GMAT's. sonibubu wrote: solaris1 wrote: Is the question from an official guide?

It's from a paper test before Pearson Vue took over, then I changed part of the sentence.
