Thank u for ur interest in Narthford University. We regret to say that your application for entrance has been rejected. Unfortunately, because of the unusually high number of candidates this year, we were not even able to accept all those with SAT scores of 1000 or above, as has been our practice in the past. We have only a limited number of openings, and must accept entering students accordingly.
Which of the following could be validily concluded fromthe letter?
(1) The student receiving the letter had SAT scores of 1000 or above
(2) The student receiving the letter did not have SAT scores of 1000 or above
(3) Narthford Uni accepted only students with SAT scores of 1000 or above
(4) Narthford Uni rejected many students with SAT scores of 1000 or above
(5) Narthford Uni had constraints other than SAT scores that affected the selection of candidates

E.

If there were no other constraints than SAT score, the university wd have accept everyone with score >= 1000.

(E).

Using similiar logic, even a GMAT 800 doesn`t guarantee admissions into an ultra-elite b-school, or any school for that matter. The application has to be well-prepared, goals articulated, school match, character analysis, essays, timing, connections, $$$$, recommendations..............

I think the answer is B.
E makes common-sense. But all the answers has to be based on the argument provided and not based on common-sense.

The argument states that 'we were not even able to accept all those with SAT scores of 1000 or above'...this means that they didn'e even selected the students with higher 1000 SAT score....so they cannot select the ones with lower SAT scores and hence they are not selecting this student. This this student scored 1000 or less.......
Any comments are always welcome......

I think the answer is D.

The statement implies that many people with scores 1000 or above got rejected.

I don't like E because the University could have accepted the first students with scores above 1000.

B is way out in left field. The University rejected people with scores above and below 1000. The University goes on to mention that it used to accept all students that had scores above 1000. If anything this implies that the student did score above 1000.

I think D could be concluded 100%.

We can not be sure of E or any other choice.

On second thoughts, i think D is the conclusion. But nonetheless, we can say B is an inference.

I think the correct answer should be (B).

The key part of the argument is "not even able to accept ...", which rephrased says something like "even if you had a score higher than 1000, your application still could have been rejected".

Where does this question come from? It would be very depressing to read in the real test something about low scores :roll:

I think the correct answer is B. This is inferred by the "not even" - phrase (see shahsac's post).

D is wrong, because the argument only states that at least one person with a score of 1000 or above was rejected (many = a great number).

E is wrong, too. It is still possible that the selection is only based on the SAT scores (say, they accept only the top 100 SAT scorers).
