Very clear Vercules!! thanks!! however sometime I get wrong because I see just a little difference between the text and the answer choice, and I guess that it is a trap... btw it is just a subtle different that the Gmat doesn't consider relevant.

Hi IanSolo,

Yes you got it right, these are all traps. Once you recognize these traps, you will be able to concentrate on the important ideas that a passage discusses. By focused practice you can achieve this.

Although there is no OA on those questions,especially the latest one,which is the most controversial in this topic.

Here is my view on the latest question. Hope it helps.

D is my choice.The reason is on the following.

Question:The passage suggests that, with regard to the history of women’s education in the United States,Kerber’s work differs from Woody’s primarily concerning which of the following?

Supporting of the paragraph:Woody’s evidence challenges the notion that the Revolution changed attitudes regarding female education, although it may have accelerated earlier trends. Historians’ reliance on Kerber’s “republican motherhood” thesis may have obscured the presence of these trends, making it difficult to determine to what extent the Revolution really changed women’s lives.

We can trace the answer from earlier trendsand we can find that the ATTITUDE is the main-highlight word,though B has got what extent,which is also a highlight.BUT B miss the point:ATTITUDE.As we can see, the start line is Woody's evidence, timeline is the same on both B and D.IMO, D is better.
