Yepp
not official as far as i can tell.
But even if it was, the gmat acts crazy often, so you can be on the lookout. And as we all know there are a couple of experimental questions which could throw you off (they dont contribute to the score but bring down your confidence about the test).

Re: Japan is a culture of accommodation and constraint, a system [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2013, 10:52
Okay here my approach:

Japan is not a culture, it is a country -> eliminate AB

C makes no sense -> eliminate

In E "of a system of forms" sounds akward and makes no sense because of the comma and is also not parallel to the other numberings. Further there is no other answer with this structure. -> eliminate

D is correct because the structure is parallel and it is not refeering to the country but the culture.

Is this a proper explanation or was it just a lucky guess?

After checking OA for this question now I have doubt for the OA given for Brutal SC's

Source : brutal SC

Can we have discussion on this !!

Whether the question is of 1000 series of Brutal series, the first step is to understand the meaning of the process. Upon understanding the meaning, one can easily deduce the correct answer.
Here A, B and C are incorrect in that they have modification issue. Is Japan a culture? Its incorrect because Japan is a country.
This modifier issue has been resolved in D and E. However, E implies that "something" of Japan is a culture of accommodation and constraint, is a culture of system of forms, etiquette bla bla bla. Illogical and hence incorrect.
D is the winner here, without any doubt.

One of my friend inform me that we have to use AND to combine 2 statements instead of ,(coma). Is it true?

a culture of... and a system of forms.... are 2 statements which refer Japan's. So do we have to use AND between them?

So when you have "Japan's is a culture" it means the culture of Japan?

So if I say "Maryse's is a book from WalMart" it is correct?

Thx for replies

Bad questions are always discussed allot on forums.

Point to be noted :
"Japan's" means "Japan's culture". A possessive without a noun takes on the identity of another noun in the sentence.

Is there subtle difference with "makes its ever-present congestion" and "makes the ever-present congestion"?
