The difficulty with many AWA Arguments is finding THREE separate/specific FLAWS to attack to reach the CRUCIAL THREE body paragraphs.
My strategy for every AWA Argument is to immediately break the argument up into individual sentences, then select three sentences to attack, and then attack each sentence in the three body paragraphs. It's straight forward and quick enough to do, especially when the flaws are obvious....but I've run into trouble on this one:
(taken from page one of the Official GMAT AWA Q's list, 2010)
“When the Apogee Company had all its operations in one location, it was more profitable than it is today. Therefore, the Apogee Company should close down its field offices and conduct all its operations from a single location. Such centralization would improve profitability by cutting costs and helping the company maintain better supervision of all employees.”
So, I break-up the sentences individually to choose which I want to attack...the above Argument has only three sentences, so I don't even have to think about it and just plugged them in to my template (via chineseburned). On closer examination though, I can't come up with three individual flaws to attack.
Long story short, I can pick any two of the three but run out of "ammo" for whichever i've left for last unless I repeat the same points I've covered already in one an two (which we can't do). So, what am I missing?
How would you get three body paragraphs out of this? Furthermore, is my strategy/approach all wrong? Please share your own strategies and tips for finding three flaws for three body paragraphs.
