Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
"Therefore, if Gina refrains from gambling she will also avoid being penniless. The refraining is not compulsary to be penniless.It's just one possibility." ---> i don't completely agree with that jaxis
If she refrains (by copying Robert's behavior) ---> she WILL avoid being penniless; this implies that if she does not refrain then she will NOT avoid, i.e., she will be penniless, else using the word "avoid" here would not make sense. Also note that it says "will also avoid", not "may" avoid. Thus refraining is 'compulsory' as you put it.
That is the flawed argument and I agree with Tommy's analysis of this above
Hmm. I hear people's points, but I still disagree. The problem, as I see it, with D, is that it does not involve two separate entities, which is the whole point. Instead, it discusses a general concept. But the main subject is extrapolating out from one company to make a conclusion about another company. In A, a conclusion is extrapolated out from one person to another. In D, there is simply an idea, which is then generalized. I truly don't think this works. If you want to blame the question, you can do that, but I would stand by A as a better choice than D.
