Is 1/(5 - X) > X/5?

(1) X < 8.

(2) X > -8.

Looking at the statements (1) & (2), you may observe that if each statement fails individually then you would have to test -8<X<8.

So it would be a good idea to test +ve and -ve values for each statement itself.

Statement 1) X < 8

Say X= 7 =>\(\frac{1}{(-2)}\) >\(\frac{7}{5}\) . False

Say X=-7 =>\(\frac{1}{12}\) >\(\frac{-7}{5}\) .. True

Insufficient

Statement 2) Follow same assumptions as Statement 1) .. Insufficient.

Now to each of the possibilities above 6*5*4 we need to multiply by 6. Since we chose 2 above, we can choose any of the six. So now required possibilities are 6*6*5*4.

(1) 2M^3 + 2M is divisible by 8.

(2) M + 10 is divisible by 10.

A : we can simplify it to : M(M^2 + 1) is divisible by 4 , this does not hold for odd values of M hence its sufficient

B this says that M is a multiple of 10 , which means M is even

My Choice : D , lets wait for the OA

A. After the policy was implemented, employees more frequently went to the doctor when they felt sick.

This simply says that the employees go to the doctors more frequently. It does not talk about the number of people who go to the doctor.

C. Employees coming into work when sick often infect many of their coworkers.

Since as per the new rules, the employees had to come to office until they were very sick, the employees

I am preparing for GMAT and plan to take it in early October of this year, 2016, to avail of the deadlines for the major schools for the fall session of 2017. As I am shooting for the top institutes my concern is with the section on integrated reasoning.

While going over through the scoring scale and test taking strategies, what I have found is, getting a score of 5 can get you into the 67th percentile which poises you above the average. However a score of 8 gets you to 90+ percentile.

Actually speaking, you should not be making any equations. You have the ratio 3:4 and 4:5

You know that the number of boys is class A is 1 more so try and multiply the ratios to figure out where you get a difference of 1. I should multiply 3:4 by a bigger number since the number of boys is more in class A.

(3:4)*3 = 9:12

(4:5)*2 = 8:10

The numbers are very simple so you can arrive at the answer very quickly.

Helpful article, but what about sentence that has more than 2 or 3 verbs , I have had this issue with approaching such questions.

When a complex sentence has multiple verbs and you are confused,Follow this rule:

1.Separate the Independent clause and Dependent Clause.

2.If IC=Present/Future ;then DC can be=all 3 tenses.

3.If IC=past ; then DC can =only be past.

4.Put all the verbs on a timeline and they must follow a logical pattern.

Hope this helps.
