Hi,

Can we not have the 7th one as E.
I read it as, Wilson was referring to the idea of open system/free market, and with this idea, America has been all this...
So, he, perhaps, started a presidential proclamation, I prefer.

B, somehow I can't relate at all. Where did he perpetuate/support the trad. system.
The author clearly tries to criticize the economic mythology, OK, accepted.
But, how are we sure that even before Wilson's entry, the trad. system has been the same. Seems Ok, but I prefer E, to be a better one.
Awful choices, though!!

I got 4,8,9 wron g in 16 mins. I was feeling asleep during the last two though. Still, this is not an easy one for me.

The only question I have for this particular problem is number 4. I thought it is more of a D. I assume its because D was not mentioned anywhere in the 1st paragraph.

Hi ppl i am new to gmatclub,

i completed the passage in 15.xx mins. Tough one but nice to solve such a passage. My answers:

1. A. bcoz the author criticizes the american economic system throughout the 2nd para. phrases like "our empty boasts from the past" point to the myths of american economic ideology.

2. B. easy one.

3. B. The answer is C. Got this wrong but understood why i was wrong. words like "regulative hand" "an authority who can halt things" all point to a judge

4. E. the author uses the word sterile to assert that all social changes have been very superficial and no fundamental change has taken place.

5. B. The act of giving a piece of the action symbolizes that the system is not ready for a fundamental change and rather it wants to keep things as it is by giving the have nots a small piece of the pie and keeping them satisfied. using POE too only B looks good.

6. C. easy one.

7 .A. the answer is B. Got this one wrong could someone explain this to me.

8. C. 1. no techniques are discussed anywhere in the passage. 2. old world is only mentioned in the 1st few lines of the 1st para after that nothing about its similarities or differences are discussed. 3. A firm YES

9.D. easy one.

Bumping up! found it tricky indeed; especially, the question wording

Got 6/9 correct.
Got the treadmill metaphor correct: My reason it is something on which you can keep on running without ever ending

I think this is one of the most difficult para, ever encountered, or is it easy as per your conviction?

I literally understood very little of what was written in the passage.
I attempted this passage in 21 minutes and I was expecting that I might get 1 or 2 correct because the RC didn't go well.
But, to my surprise when I checked the answers I got the first 7 correct and last 2 incorrect.

Total Time: 21 minutes
Accuracy: 7/9 (77%)

Criticizes how America focuses not enough on interdependence and too much on competition. (2nd para)

So answer of 1st question is A.

1-> A: I used POE here. None of the other options sounded right. All the other options were either partially or completely out of scope.
2-> B: None of the answers looked right to me. I chose property because it was the only one which looked as possible answer. "settled possessiveness" -> seems like something that talks about settling -> hence property.
3-> C: Since only a judge can act as a strong referee for the country.
4-> E: POE
5-> B:POE
6-> C: Its the only option that talks about movement and something that can be halted. Similar to the US economic system which is always on the move but can be brought to a halt if required, a treadmill keeps moving and is also something that can stop.
7-> B: POE. All others are OOS.
8 ->C: 1st 2 statements arent spoken about at all.
9-> D: A-> OOS. B-> Undermining of the US economic structure isnt spoken about in the passage. Not sure about C. E is absolutely not right according to the passage.
