We are working on a new set of Verbal Tests for GMAT Club. Several members have responded to our "Help Wanted Ad" and submitted their questions. I am posting the first batch and would love to hear your feedback about the questions. I would also like to know your opinion about how close this question is to the Real GMAT (or Official Guide if you have not taken the GMAT yet) on a 1-5 scale where
1 is not close at all
2 is not close
3 is average/undecided
4 is close
5 is exact match

I will post the OA and Explanation in 1-3 days, depending on how many takers we get. Your feedback will help significantly and very much appreciated!

3.
Not sure whether in Real GMAT you can use comparative ("broader") adjective in this way, unless of course there is a clear comparison.

IMO E.

3. agree with botirvoy.
Does GMAT entertain twisted modifiers? I mean "broader pollination crisis" could be better written as "crisis in broader pollination".

Here is the OA and Explanation: Now that the OA and explanation are posted, can you rate this question in terms of difficulty?
Let's keep the 1-5 scale with 1 being easy and 5 hard.

Answer: E

2. It is important to note the difference between crisis and crises. ‘Crisis’ is singular and ‘crises’ is plural. Hence the verb should agree with the subject in both number and gender. Also, the part of the sentence that isn’t underlined suggests the form the adjective ‘broad’ should take.

A - The word ‘being’ is usually incorrect.
B – The expletive construction does not agree with crises.
C - The expletive construction does not agree with crisis.
D – The word ‘broad’ does not take on a parallel construction.
E – This is the correct answer

D has additional problem - it distorts original sense: crises instead of crisis.

This is a very good one: rating - 4/5.
Agree with OA - E as well.
