D. took almost 1 minuet.

if some people who know how a country's government works do not know how its goverment was formed, then it is not necessary to to teach children the history of their country and how its goverment was formed.

over a minute

i did a sample test recently checking time frequently. Got distracted by the
extra time check - is it an overhead that is not constructive ? losing concentration to worry about time seem to be too much.

4 too. less than a minute.

gmataquaguy, don't be so troubled about this timing thing (i just read your post on baner's 'Share Your Experience' thread). i am also in your shoes.

What i just did: I glanced at the stem and believed this should be a breeze (3 lines). Then i linked the conclusion with the premise, and immediately the flaw popped up. I said to myself, "To weaken, i need something to tell me that people can know a country well without learning how the country's govt. was formed." i.e. the premise is not just the only thing that can be done. Bingo, 4 said just that and i didn't hesitate to pick it. My key is to train my brain to attack, attack and attack the argument, until i kill it.

Had i read it first and couldn't zero-in on an answer, i'll have gradually read it again, trying to catch the committing words (e.g. only, must, never, etc, etc).

D
It took me less than 30 seconds. I'm not an expert in CR, but i really don't understand where is the trick. There is even no "second best" answer.
