Ronald: According to my analysis of the national economy, [#permalink]  31 Jan 2008, 09:07
Ronald: According to my analysis of the national economy, housing prices should not increase during the next six months unless interest rates drop significantly.
Mark: I disagree. One year ago, when interest rates last fell significantly, housing prices did not increase at all.
It can be inferred from the conversation above that Mark has interpreted Ronald’s statement to mean that
(A) housing prices will rise only if interest rates fall
(B) if interest rates fall, housing prices must rise
(C) interest rates and housing prices tend to rise and fall together
(D) interest rates are the only significant economic factor affecting housing prices
(E) interest rates are likely to fall significantly in the next six months

it should be (B) but you have posted in a wrong thread.

Hope a modrerator will move this post to verbal thread.

i think these CR problems are great. most ppl taking the gmat are bsiness majors/profressionals, so it should really be no problem.
