Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I completely cannot justify y I choose D after cutting them down to C and D. Can someone give me a proper explanation y it is D, and y not C?
(C) Not all of a person’s involuntary actions are actions of which that person is unaware. (D) A person who hums involuntarily can easily learn to notice it and can thereby come to control it.
C is totally a generalized statement for all of the involuntary actions... though this look like correct, D talks about the problem at hand and how one should overcome that issue. So, D is more appropriate I think... _________________
Option C means " Not all involuntary actions go unnotice" which might be true. However as Marianne clearly states that she does NOT notice the involuntary action 'Humming' so we take this premise at face value and make this answer choice wrong.
Leaving ofcourse D as correct. _________________
Please give me kudos, if you like the above post. Thanks.
D The problem with C is mismatch between the language in the question and in the answer. The question describes the specific situation, but then the answer provides a rather broad statement. Plus, when taken vs D, option C is not so air-tight: hummling may not necessary be covered by 'Not all of a person’s involuntary actions'
her humming was involuntary and that therefore she should not be held responsible for it.
Which one of the following, if true, most undermines Marianne’s argument against the order? (A) The officials of chess have little or no authority to control the behavior of its professional players outside of matches. (B) Many of the customs of amateur chess matches are not observed by professional chess players. (C) Not all of a person’s involuntary actions are actions of which that person is unaware. (D) A person who hums involuntarily can easily learn to notice it and can thereby come to control it. (E) Not all of Marianne’s opponents are distracted by her humming during chess matches.
Its clear that the answer is (D) because the statement conveys that those who involuntarily hums notice it. This undermines Marianne's statement since she thinks that she shouldn't be held responsible for her involuntarily humming. _________________
