There is no proof that SETs are real GMAT questions!!! Besides, I read on several sites that the answers to some questions are not correct. I have made a search on this question and the results are contradicting ->A, B or C (I would pick B as well).

Wild guess btwn B or C. I didn't like "as many" in B so I went for C.

Vlad,

What are these SETS and where did they come from? If they are supposed to be real GMAT questions, but they weren't ever released by GMAC then it makes me think they are braindump questions. if they are singh shouldn't be posting them on this website (unless we'd like to see our nice little community be wiped off the face of the earth by the GMAC.)

I just read a whole article somewhere about braindumps. It is apparently a problem throughout Asia. My two cents is that it is a really low class way to study... believe it or not people domemorize the current gmat problems. :roll:

I've written my note, because I feel we should not name them REAL GMAC questions since they are not official and nobody can clearly explain where they come from (even if somebody claims that he/she saw some of them on the real test)!!!

B. i also chose B because CDE are out because of amount, which is wrong. between A and B, A uses less so it is also out.

so B remains. hope it is correct tooooooooo.

Dear anonymousegmat,

Please consider the problems as practicing tool so let's have some healthy brainstorming discussions on the forums than getting involved into any discussions like whther questions appeared on GMAT or any region specific issues.......It was my fault that i posted the questions under Official GMAT thread, and now onwards i will take care of the same!

Though really appreciate for raising the point!

Thanks
