I am stuck between B and E, how to rule out one.
I am facing such problem,getting stuck b/w two options, very frequently, can someone please suggest me how to get rid of it
Hi Veenu08. I'm glad to help (in any way)For your first question:
Analyze the stimulus:
Fact: Plant Y thrives
in environments of great sunlight and very little moisture
Fact: Desert X is an environment with constant, powerful sunlight, and almost no moisture
Fact: But X does not exist
naturally in the desert, nor does it survive long when introduced there
The question asks you to explain why plan Y does not EXIST
in dessert Y.
Please see the RED
parts. "Exist" does not mean "Thrive"
. For example: Y may exist in desert Y, but Y does not thrive. ==> B is wrong because B may lead to the result: Plan Y may exist, but does not thrive in desert X because one-week rainfall is just temporary condition
and Desert X is an environment with constant
, powerful sunlight, and almost no moisture.
E, however, clearly shows that plan Y cannot exist in desert X
. Hence, E is correct.For your second question:
I'm sorry buddy, but there's no shortcut. Please keep in mind, in real GMAT, you can eliminate 3 options very fast
. The remaining two options, however, make it difficult to rule out one. Some common errors I can show you such as:
- reverse answer (if you read too fast, you can fall in this kind of trap)
- shell game (like this question)
. It changes enough to be attractive.
- Opposite answer (if you read too fast, you can fall in this kind of trap)
- Out of scope (needless to say, I'm sure you can eliminate this error very easy)
Hope that helps.
Please +1 KUDO if my post helps. Thank you.
