I hope the example above is not copyrighted - it is not a copy of what is copyrighted. We try to keep this place clean as to prolong its life and prevent it from being shut down, thus I strictly enforce copyright rules.

Most of the questions here are made up by people who post them. Stolyar is the leader of course, but that's the way we work. Others modify the originals as not to make them recognizable and remove danger of copyright infringement.

If this question is not clean, I will have to kill it.

I dont know whether the problem is copyright or not. Since this problem was forwarded to me by my friend for an answer i posted it. But if u think the problem is a copyright u can always kill it. I will be careful next time.

No doubt, it is from the gmatplus. As far as I remember, A should be correct.

A is fine by me also.

As for BB's concern, if this is from GMATplus, then it is not copyrighted !Since GMATplus is itself a Copy of old GMAT questions !

C is wrong because the correct usage of "less" is "less...than"

E is not parallel
