Hi JarvisR,

I think it would be easiest if you show me the work that you did when dealing with Question #2. Based on your interpretation of what was asked, what data did you pull from the table? What calculation(s) did you perform?

On any given GMAT question (whether it's IR or some other type), it's okay if you're unsure of how to interpret what is asked. However, you're not allowed to do 'nothing' - you should try working through the prompt with your initial interpretation, then work through it (if needed) with any other interpretation that you might have. Sometimes, the process of going through the work provides you with the exact insight that you need to adjust your thinking and correctly answer the question.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi EMPOWERgmatRichC

I have the same question as JarvisR.

Preserve Market Share(PMS) : 28 Respondents
Expand Customer Base (ECB): 30 Respondents

How can we assume 28 Respondents of PMS are in those 30 Respondents of ECB ?
Is there anything i am missing ?

Hello EMPOWERgmatRichC
How can we infer that Q1 is supported from the table given?

The question Shrivathsan have is apparently what most of the people here have problem with. In fact everyone is trying to prove why (2) is supported just because the official answer says that (2) is supported.

Please explain question 2 and 3
Source : GMAT Prep


Hi EMPOWERgmatRichC,

It seems that most people do not have any problems with question 1. But I want to make sure my logic is correct on question 1.

In the first column, all the potential benefits that people believe are listed, as well as "other', "no benefit" and "uncertain".

Statement 1: A majority of the respondents believe adding a website could benefit their businesses.

To determine whether the percentage of respondents believe adding a website could benefit their businesses is more than 50%, I need to calculate the percentage of "No benefit" and "Uncertain". For example, 27% and 10% of Latino believe that there no benefit or they are uncertain. Therefore, 63% (more than 50%) believe there are benefits.

Is it correct?

Thx,
Victoria

Hi all,

Let me give a try to the problematic question (2). I actually had the same doubts while answering regarding overlapping sets. Let's recall what the conclusion said "fewer than 25% of the respondents who believe a website could help expand their customer base also believe a website could help them maintain their current market share"

Are overlapping sets problematic? Well let's see what happens if 100% (max. scenario) of the respondents who believe a website could help them maintain their current market share also responded that they believe a website could help them expand their customer base --> applying % as #EMPOWERgmatRichC previously did, we see that in the max. scenario (all respondents that believe a website could help them maintain their current market share also responded that they believe a website could help expand their customer base) is not enough to reach the 25% provided in the conclusion.

Hence, anything under that max. scenario will definitely be a smaller percentage than 25%. Therefore, the information provided in the table is enough to support the conclusion.

Hope the above is clear.
