Guys, just to benchmark my results. I've just done the first 35 questions spending in average 1.14 min per question. My hit ratio is 18 correct... - slightly above 50%... amazing.. NOT, as Borat would say (:

May I add one more VERY brutal SC (MGMAT CAT3, 700+ level)

During the past decade, the labor market in France has not been operating according to free market principles, but instead stifling functioning through its various government regulations restricting the hiring and firing of workers.

hey..... according to me there is a typo error in the question 21 option D

Option D is given an OA and it will be correct only when "and" before "spending" is removed. Only then "spending" will correctly modify the clause before it. otherwise, option D will be incorrect because then "spending" will modify the medical services. Moreover, we need to find parallel structure which is not there.

d) that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, and spending

Moderators please take a note of this issue .... and explain me if I am wrong.

Nice way of showing the OA :)

B is incorrect because it does not connect two independent clauses properly. Two independent clauses should be connected using ; or , FANBOYS. That is why choice E is correct.
