could someone enlighten me/direct me to a previous post where this method is explained?

finally, is it only used for SC?
Cheers!

I think it is when, in the answer choices, 3 choices have something in common while the other 2 choices have something else in common.

So once you identify the 3/2 split, you can decide which is correct similarity.

Example:

So if you decide "he had gone" is correct, you can eliminate 3 choices right there (A, B, and D). Then you only have C and E left to decide which is the right answer.

Its just a quick way to trim down your answer choices. Maybe somebody else can explain it better but Im sure you get the jist.

And yes, I believe it is only for SC.....but sometimes its hard to spot or not even there.

Here you go. Learn it right from the source

Ok so the link was suppose to be here, but I am new to this website, so I can`t post URLs. But do this:
a) Go to Amazon
b) Search for: Manhattan GMAT SC
c) Click on the Sentence Correction book

Then,
Go to "Look Inside". Scroll to Page 14 and 15 and read that. I have this guide, I just read this 15 mins ago. I think its a very good strategy.

Hope this helps
