That's why we work on pacing. If there seems to be a question that's taking 2, 3 or even 4 minutes, we have to pick our battles.
I agree this is bad if it was a real question on the GMAT at some point. So they claim each question costs then $2,400...maybe they should have spent a few more $$ on this one
Also, I don't like the fact that we might see this question (or similar bad question) on the real GMAT that is a practice question for us. What if the question is so messed up, that we spend 6 or 7 minutes on this question only realize that it cannot be solved? GMAC has then just screwed up the rest of the test with a question that didn't even count!!!
That seems so horribly wrong to me. I'd rather we knew every single question of the 37 and 41 we answered counted.
i only hope that GMAC doesnt post a question like this on the real exam..that would surely screw up my timing..
