I read this in the Princeton Review guide, in the SC section.

If this is true, does it mean, when we have to guess or when in doubt, choose A?


Also, is the rule more common in...say Level 600 questions than Level 700 q? Or any other level?

I have answered about 1,000 SC questions including all kinds of difficulties. It's my opinion that this is not the case. If it is, then it is only marginally the case. Taking this into account will either a) add time to every question unnecessarily and/or b) take away from the much more important steps that you ought to have on SC questions. Therefore, you absolutely shouldn't take it into account when answering any question.

Well! this claim does not make much sense, at least mathematically. I mean the word most means at least more than 50%, or I would say even close to 70 to 80 per cent. In that case a majority of the answers should be A? Are they? I have seen individuals fancying funny things about GMAT. You too Princeton?

Hm, interesting interpretation. I think all you need for "most common" to be true is for A to be right more times than any other answer so that it's right >20% of the time and no other answer is right > times than A.

Obviously for this strategy to even make sense at all, that percentage needs to be closer to 30 or 40%, in which case, it's still basically useless and probably counter-productive to consider that possibility on any given question.
