I really don't understand how you people notice it so quickly? I don't seem to get this tricks with 100 seconds. DO I need to study or go through any material for this?
i will say that best way to go FOR SC question is to understand the meaning.
second....most of the time...you will find more than 1 error in a sentence.
third, you have to choose best of the lot===>means if you thinks if 2 of the answer is correct both in grammar and in meaning.==>the one which is short will be better.
The automotive conveyor-belt system, which Henry Ford modeled after an assembly-line technique introduced by Ransom Olds
, reduced from a day and
a half to 93 minutes the required time of assembling a
(A) from a day and a half to 93 minutes the required time of assembling a Model T
(B) the time being required to assemble a Model T, from a day and a half down to 93 minutes
(C) the time being required to assemble a Model T, a day and a half to 93 minutes
(D) the time required to assemble a Model T from a day and a half to 93 minutes
(E) from a day and a half to 93 minutes, the time required for the assembling of a Model T
here the highlited region is a modifier...starting with WHICH..
===>Whenever you have modifier in non underlined part always remove the clause read the sentence(as modifiers are additional information)..
now in this question if you remove the highlited portion :
The automotive conveyor-belt system reduced================ from a day and a half to 93 minutes the required time of assembling a Model T.
now if you read this sentence upto reduced...what you think you are going to get after reduced.......offcourse the identity which is going to get reduced.....otherwise meaning is not clear..that what is reduced.......so as TIME is reduced...so it must follow REDUCED...to make most clear meaning...so basis this you can eliminate option A and E
MOREOVER if you see in question stem:==>the required time OF
assembling....==>This is wrong.....required time FOR assembling is CORRECT...SO YOU CAN SEE if you miss one thing...you can eliminate on basis of this...error.
now if you see OPTION E:
The automotive conveyor-belt system reduced from a day and a half to 93 minutes, the time required for the assembling
of a Model T==>NOW IN THIS OPTION REQUIRED FOR ASSEMBLING IS CORRECT...but if you notice the comma before the time
.....==>it means it is modifying 93 minutes==>time required for assembling....now if you remove this modifier also.:
The automotive conveyor-belt system reduced from a day and a half to 93 minutes===>this is illogicalll....here we are not able to determine
what is being reduced...hence it is wrong...
hence the option containing from
so will suggest you to read thoroughly the explanation of each answer choices given in OG...and compile notes to make a grammar book for GMAT.
