Integrated Reasoing - True.False [#permalink] New post 09 Feb 2013, 08:33
If an integrated reasoning questions follows this logic: "Based upon the chart, it can be determined that Country A has more imports than Country B?"

If the chart proves this to be false, for example, the chart clearly shows Country B has more imports. Is the answer True or False? Based along the same line as a yes/no data sufficiency question, whereas, if you can prove the statement incorrect, then the answer is sufficient. In other words, is the answer only true on IR if the chart can positively make the question valid, and only false if more information is needed to make a conclusion? Or if the chart can answer the question negatively, is that also false?

Thanks!!

It depends how the question is formulated.

Is the statement true or false: Based upon the chart, it can be determined that Country A has more imports than Country B.
If the chart shows that country B has more imports, the statement is false. No question about it.

Is the statement true or false: Based upon the chart, it can be determined which country has more imports.
Now, if the chart gives you a clear indication of which country has more imports, the statement is true. It doesn't matter whether A has more or B.

Do not confuse IR questions with sufficiency questions. The DS questions test whether you understand sufficiency. IR questions test your data analyzing capability.
