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

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.

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) :lol:

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

Thanks for the questions; however, I cannot believe they are all 700 level questions!!! I would place many of them at 600-700

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.

Since the mid-1990s, the central government of Botswana has been forcibly removing native Bushmen from the
Central Kalahari Game Reserve; the government justifies their actions by stating that it is too costly to provide such
basic services like medical care and schooling to such a remote area.
• justifies their actions by stating that it is too costly to provide such basic services like
• justifies their actions by stating it is too costly and expensive to provide such basic services as
• justify their actions by stating that it is too costly to provide basic services like
• justify its actions by stating that it is too costly and expensive to provide such a basic service as
• justifies its actions by stating that it is too costly to provide such basic services as

As Government is singular, usage of 'their' after justifies is wrong in option A, B and C.

In option D, costly and expensive, both mean the same. So its redundant. And two services are mentioned here- Medical Care and Schooling. So it should be services instead of singular ' service'

Hence option E is the correct answer.
