Hi buddies, I come with a verbal resource this time. It is a test of idiom questions that I made for the community, based on the MGMAT SC volume, which, as everyone knows, is the bible of SC. Read carefully the statements in the first page in order to perform well; comments, suggestions, reports and discussion are welcome Good luck!

One suggestion/feedback- Should answer choices be shuffled next time anyone attempt Idioms test? This would allow to really read through choices during future attempts despite seeing answer choices earlier. _________________

Just have one question: #14 The correct answer is C: iPhone users download two to four times as many games, video, and other Web data as other smartphone users.

My question is whether if C is correct.... I chose E for this Q because I think C is also wrong. "iPhone users download x times as many data as other smartphone users. " I think this sentence should be written as "iPhone users download x times as many data as other smartphone users do. " If not, readers may think that the author is comparing data to users, "download as many A as B", that is to download other users.... Illogical

Dear Saruba, I do have a query regarding question no 30. I would like to write down the SC Problem first: A. The average price has risen at least 1 cent per gallon per day for eight consecutive days to $2.952, 10 cents as much as a week ago. B. The average price has risen at least 1 cent per gallon per day for eight consecutive days to $2.952, 10 cents more than a week ago. C. The average price has risen at least 1 cent per gallon per day for eight consecutive days to $2.952, 10 cents more from a week ago. The correct choice marked is 30(B). The point under consideration in choice B is that the comparison made in the choice seems to be between price and the week.The correct statement should have been " The average price has risen at least 1 cent per gallon per day for eight consecutive days to $2.952, 10 cents more than that of a week ago". Please do clarify me about this case.

Dear Saruba, I do have a query regarding question no 29. I would like to write down the SC Problem first: A.The lead-in from "Dancing with the Stars" will be high, and so too the expectations. B.The lead-in from "Dancing with the Stars" will be high, and also the expectations. C.The lead-in from "Dancing with the Stars" will be high, and so too will be the expectations. The correct choice marked is 29(C). The fact is that why should we add "will be" after so too. It should be only "so too" as in option "A".Please do clarify me about this.

I took the Idioms' Test yesterday and found a couple of answers to be unconvincing.

For eg. # 15 : Shouldn't it be " One in a million chance" instead of "One Chance in a Million"

# 3 : Shouldn't it be " School lack of rigor" instead of " rigor is lacking in schools".

# 20 : Shouldn't it be "consider the problems to be necessary inconveniences" instead of " consider the problem necessary conveniences".

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Awaiting a revert on the same.

Regarding the confusion over "One Chance in a million" it is clear that there can't be million chances. There are million opportunities of which we just have one chance. So always use - "1 chance in a million". This is against our in-general usage " one in a million chance".

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Hey ! I would like to know when do we use the idioms Considered and Regarded as. Do they both mean different and are they supposed to be used differently i different contexts ? PLease explain with an example.
