Article: An approach to Quantitative Predictive Arguments

The term “Quantitative Predictive Arguments” refers to those arguments that talk in terms of numbers - absolute numbers, percentages, or proportions - and that make a prediction about one parameter on the basis of value of some other parameters. This article explains how to approach such questions, pre-think the answer, and evaluate the answers choices in less than a minute. It also provides 10 OG questions for practice.

Here is what he said about the e-GMAT SC course. “There were no new rules I learned from e-gmat that were not covered in Manhattan guide, but the way they were presented helped me.

Critical Reasoning

- Want to learn how assumptions are built in intermediate conclusions. Carefully review these comprehensive solutions to the two 700+ level CR questions posted last week. These explanations also bring out several nuances that are part of 700+ level questions.
- An absolutely lucid explanation of a tricky quant-based CR question that uses properties of mean of data in a very subtle way. This detailed post first explains how to understand the conclusion and then goes into the details of how to identify the correct choice.
- Ever wonder whether the “negation test” always applies on “Assumption” questions? And further ever wondered if it could also apply to “strengthen” questions. Get your doubts clarified through the discussion in this post.

Sentence Correction

- Usage of Being - Do you see the word “being” in an answer choice and by default reject it? If you do, then read the discussion in this post. You will see the cases in which “being” is used in the correct choice.
- Verb-ing Modifiers - Started your GMAT preparation and came across your first verb-ing modifier that modifies the preceding clause instead of the noun? Then read the discussion in this post.
- How to make noun phrases parallel: Attempt this OG 10 question to learn the same.
- Learn a rather uncommon use of semicolon through this OG 13 question.

I hope you like these posts. I would love to hear from you. Feel free to give "Kudos' or award "Thanks" if you benefit from them.
