returns
(D) if the fruit is quickly processed into juice concentrate before they rot when warmer weather returns

citrus needs a singular pronoun and verb 'them' is plural making the answer choice wrong.

q5 ] pls underline the relevant part in the sentence for clarity; meaning is the key issue here

anyhow, the questions is where the monuments are older than or as old as their supposed /supposedly Meditrn. predecessors.

the intended meaning is that --whether these are predecessors or not , so we will use supposed (here supposed and mediterranean both modify predecessors)
that leave us with A B C, the sentence now reads xxxxxxxxx monuments are nearly 2,000 years ...............supposed mediterranean predecessors
2000 yrs as old as ---is nonsensical
2000 yrs older than SUPPOSED predecessors makes sense

using supposedly would imply that we don't know it the predecessors are mediterranean (supposedly will modify mediterranean that in turn modify predecessors)

I may be harsh in saying this,yes the initiative is great but the method isn't.
I was just attempting the question list right from the start of the discussion and found that no discussions are happening on the questions rather than the thread creator is just posting questions with a great speed thereby affecting the quality of discussion what GMTCLB offers.For instance we can find forums in which 3 pages discussions happened just for a single questions.

This isn't an offense it is just a suggestion to improve the quality of discussion which could be fruitful for members of this forum.

@targetgmatchotu

I think the original poster wanted to have a discussion (as highlighted above) and hence asked people to post their takeaways but you can't have a discussion w/o active participation. So it would be better to start a discussion rather than complain about lack of the same. Just to add the discussion did take place on the few questions that many people got incorrect and IMO the length of the discussion is NOT proportional to its quality.

Hi Saurabh,
Finally some posts on this thread albeit not a actual meaningful discussion. Thanks, for pointing out that answers from 21-30 are missing (surprisingly the 15-16 people who downloaded the document earlier did not bring it to my notice.) I have edited the post and added the solutions.
As far as the discussion about the questions is concerned, I had posted the takeaways from Q31-Q40 and discussed some 6-7 questions additionally , but when I saw the lack of participation from other I did not post anymore takeaways.I guess the same may be the case with the original poster (Archit143) as indicated by his posts.
Btw some questions out of the 50 are tricky and can teach you a thing or two. If you find any questions difficult or important then they can be discussed now.

Well I never pointed on quality of OG question ,the thread started just posted 20-40 questions within two days .Moreover you can't expect people responding within seconds for all questions ,for discussion to happen let the questions stay there and then only the discussion can happen.A reader browse through the thread finds that only questions ,questions and only questions ,there is no analysis no POE minimal concepts pointed out by members.I just contrasted this thread with other threads of the forums where in maximum is discussion and minimal of OA's where in members justify wrong answers also but they have a point and there we have frutiful discussion where we come to know why the wrong answer choice is really wrong.

Mere running a sprint won't help anyone,it is a marathon which has to be completed.

PS:No offense to anyone ,it was just a suggestion because as I was practicing I got plenty of questions wrong thank god I searched them on GMAT club else would have been restless without knowing the reasoning behind.

Expert's post
This thread is amazing. compliments

however, I'll suggest to do, next time, a post as gmat-like style teachs us. In other words: break up the topic into chunks.

Post for instance

a) the most valuable SC's, otherwise is a waste of energy.

b) make a post for each 10 at maximum 15 questions, then the next 15. i.e. : OG 10 first set; second post OG 10 second set and open the second one with the link to the first one; the third with 10/15 questions and link to the previous posts (i.e. the first and the second ) and so on and so forth. when you have finished a thread to sum up the entire situation.

In that way is more manageable.

regards

Hi Archit,

Errata for question number 41.

41. Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied. Congress has been required to call a convention
for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it by the legislatures
of two-thirds of the states.

After the first sentence "under .... applied" there should have been a comma and not a period.Plz rectify the same

2. Since 1981, when the farm depression began, the number of acres overseen by professional

(A) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area that is about Colorado's size
(B) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, about the size of Colorado
(C) has grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado
(D) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado's
(E) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, about Colorado's size

Pls comment on what is wrong is the usage of "about Colorado's size" i think its perfectly fine...only thing is that it has an idionm error in option E i.e from X up to y


Hii Archit.
In the correct answer choice, it is a must to use an appositive. An appositive describes a noun which is far away. In the status quo, without the appositive "an area" it seems that number is about the Colorado's size. If you use appositive "an area", then in such a case 59 million would be treated together with "acres" AS AN AREA.
Another issue with E is that it uses possessives. GMAT tends to avoid that. In fact, answer choice D seems nice unless you notice the usage of possessive noun.
Hope that helps.



A and B should be eliminated bc "the number of acres" is singular and requires "has grown". In D and E "Has grown" and "up" are redundant.

Sir,

Give a diagnostic test from Official Guide -13 and you may get the feeling which section you are lacking in.Start with that section itself.Having said that here is reply to your query.

Q5.

2000 years as old as isn't idiomatic.We can say twice as old as however.

After above criterion we have two options.

Supposed (Adjective)
Supposedly (Adverb)

The meaning of the sentence demands an adjective.Furthermore, we can have two valid constructions.

ADJ+ADJ+NOUN (Here both ADJ's describes NOUN)
ADV+ADJ+NOUN (Here ADV describes ADJ and ADJ in turn describes NOUN)

Hope this helps

24. The first decision for most tenants living in a building undergoing being converted to cooperative ownership
is if to sign a no-buy pledge with the other tenants.
(A) being converted to cooperative ownership is if to sign
(B) being converted to cooperative ownership is whether they should be signing
(C) being converted to cooperative ownership is whether or not they sign
(D) conversion to cooperative ownership is if to sign
(E) conversion to cooperative ownership is whether to sign


Can someone explain why E is chosen over D?


E vs D means "if" vs "whether"

Useful rule:
"Use if for a conditional idea, whether for an alternative or possibility"

But generally speaking after a prepositions , use only whether.
If you have more doubts refere here

Hope it's clear, let me know
