I am not sure of the actual source. But the compilation I have is from a GMAT coaching club. While compilation it self has lot of questions, most of them are present on the forum as well. So have not posted them. So probably the ones already present on the forum might be the tough ones in my collection, while these could be on the lower end of difficulty.

Anyways, I will continue to post the rest as i come across them.

At least this will give us more practice questions not present on the forum.

Hi All,

Once in a while, when practicing SC, I used to come across some questions not present on this forum. So am going to dedicate this thread to those though 700-800 level questions. We see if can post them topic wise.

So these are not necessarily new questions, but those that we haven't come across on this forum.

1. Noting that the price of oil and other fuel components, a major factor in the cost structure of an airline, have risen
and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their
outlook for the upcoming quarter.
• have risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their

• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the
• has risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their
• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their

i pick c. the company management is singular so D and E out. have risen doesnt agree with the subject the price. so A and B out. please correct me if i am wrong

• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their

The main subject of the sentence is the PRICE, in singular form. Hence, choice A and B are out.

Second, "their outlook" does not refer to anything, so choice D and E are out. The correct answer after POE is C.

Got 1. That was a very good problem IMO. Got 2. Also a good one, but easier. Got 3. Good problem. Got 4. Starting to suspect that these aren't 700 level questions. Skipped 5. Saw that in another thread. Got 6. Meh. These aren't 700 level questions. I'm going to make a question bank at some point of questions I can't easily hit.

easy split mathmatical analysis is singular so A, C and E are out. "animals" is plural so D is out

i pick E here, "hoping" modifies the subject "the country Gvt" so A and B are out. raised and increase is redundant so C is out. D is just awkward

i pick E here. according to the intended meaning of the sentence, "discouraged" modifies shareholders. so A, B and D are out. past perfect is required in this sentence. hence E fits the bill

Hi,

Thanks for posting these questions. I just feel these are probably sub 600 level (or I have gotten better at this in a hurry)

But thanks nonetheless, appreciate your effort (to all contributors)

Got only the 1st one wrong. Eliminated the answers down to C & E

1. Noting that the price of oil and other fuel components, a major factor in the cost structure of an airline, have risen
and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their outlook for the upcoming quarter.

C. will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the
E. will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their

Should've selected C because it already mentions the company management.
