I have a quick question for the members.

The short passages in OG have around 5-6 questions where as the real GMAT has only 3. Given that, i am guessing the questions (or question pool) in OG are from a easy to difficult scale.
If the same RC were to appear in the adaptive test, the questions (after q1 - if you get it right) i.e 2 and 3 would be more of the difficult ones...i.e inference , weaken the conclusion...etc

Also for any RC in the real gmat, the 1st question is always given..is it same to assume that it will of medium difficulty before that test adapts to your performance on the same and throws more easy/difficult questions?

The same logic should hold true for the long RC passages.

the adaptability of questions in RC doesn't depend on your answer in a particular RC question.

Suppose if RC was your first question in the verbal section, then yes it starts with medium difficulty. But if you answered all the first 10 CR and SC perfectly right and your 11th question is an RC question then it would be hard and the second question of RC depends on the answer you gave to the first RC question.

Would that imply that even the RC's (by topic) are also graded by difficulty levels ?

For ex - a social science RC maybe more difficult than a Astronomy para.
But then again, if the test taker has a social science background, it will be an easy nut to crack.
