I noticed, lately, a bunch of questions from veritas prep
question bank posted here on the board from you. As a matter of fact, I also noticed that you (maybe I'm right maybe I'm wrong) posted them because you have difficulties with CR (indeed all we have difficulties). As such, I suggest you, aside to revise each question and the explanation, to study what the question ask you, whatever it is: weaken assumption and so on.
Look at this critical-reasoning-megathread-145178.html
Now back to the question at end, the best strategy for these kind of questions, that are a minor question type of the entire CR battery, is to UNDERSTAND the overall structure of the stimulus and read each word carefully. repeat carefully
. the key is in these such words. Otherwise are even impossible to solve and , to be honest, you are right: are among the most difficulties questions
Stimulus: basically it says that a X theory is a waste of time to unify the different theories about the universe and so on.
Conclusion: al these information are "hot air"
Skeptic: No scientific evidence has been collected
in support of M-Theory, the so-called breakthrough theory that proponents claim will unify our understanding of matter, the origin of the universe, and the functioning of gravity. This theory is nothing more than "bunk" and "hot air" concocted by desperate scientists.
A) Jan makes things up to get attention. If you want proof,
just look at how much she talks about her new boyfriend, but no one has ever met him!
As you can see from the bold part that I highlighted you have the key word proof = evidence
and the second part but no one has ever met him!
So basically, A says the same thing of the stimulus.
Now is clear ??
Hope this helps
