Dear SajjadAhmad,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

This is an abysmal question for a variety of reasons. There is no such thing as "stochastic fuel injection"--the author was trying to make this sound technical by using a word he really didn't understand. One could have, say, a stochastic model of how fuel injection functions--perhaps this is what confused the author of the question.

Leaving that aside, the question is category-based, more like an LSAT question, but it's far to easy to be an LSAT question. If this "stochastic fuel injection" is not "normally included in the engines of production-line vehicles," and sedans are "production-line vehicles," then it would not be normally included in sedans. A slum-dunk syllogism.

OA = (A)

As someone who writes practice GMAT questions professionally, I would give this particular question a grade of a D.

Here's a much more successfully constructed CR practice question:
Apologizing to Crime Victims

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
