Attached. This time, I have attached a complete RC test of 3 passages and 25 questions..you have 30-35 minutes to complete it. All the three RC's are of very good standard..and if you can do 20+ correct in alloted time..Iam pretty sure that you are all set for cracking even the toughest of RC's in real one.
I will post the answers no later than 30 hours from now..so try to do this test before that.

i would suggest those who try to give themselves 2min/question, hence 50 min max to do these questions so as not to rush through the questions and miss crucial information. On the actual test, you get about 2 min. per question anyways

Forget to mention that this test is from vstudy..so they are real GMAT rc's not LSAT rc's or any other stuff.

Paul, I respect your views ..but I think 30-35 minutes is fair in this test since test takers at the time of paper pencil format used to have that much time only. I agree that now the test has 2 min per question..but then the questions and RC's in today's CAT could be even tougher than the old test ones..to compensate for the extra time given. After all, ETS has to be fair with the students..

I consider the first one to be okay, 2nd one difficult, third one too difficult.
(Is it because I am not a feminist? Women/Women's passage - difficult to understand )

I am concerned about my answers, since I had to do this at 2:00 AM on sat night , but was determined to do this today. Otherwise, Crackgmat wont post anymore RC. Overall, good and difficult choice of passages to train ourselves.

01-E 06-B 11-A 16-D 21-A
02-D 07-A 12-E 17-A 22-A
03-E 08-B 13-A 18-B 23-B
04-E 09-C 14-B 19-A 24-A
05-C 10-B 15-B 20-A 25-D

(Btw, I took around 55 mins for all )

I too felt the need to answer this question as I was afraid crackgmat750 would no longer post other RC questions Overall, it is not as difficult as LSAT questions but under time constraint, it could very well be.

Thanks guys for participating.
Yes, hardworker, first one was the easiest..I found second one toughest and had maximum questions incorrect in that..
I did 18/25 correct in 35 minutes..
I still cannot understand question 13..paul has got it correct.can you explain paul?
Also, I feel answer to question 22 may be wrong.. I think it's clearly A ..but answer given is B.

Yea question 13 is a bit tricky, the passage says that children with the sickle cell gene had much milder cases than children with out it. Here's where the trick comes in, the question for thirteen say "INFERRED" this should always be a BIG RED FLAG, this means that the answer will look nothing like anything in the passage because it is inferred, and not stated. So earlier we read that a large number of children die from Sickle Cell, so we can then INFERR that if children with Sickle Cell have a milder case of malaria, than a lot less of them are also dying. But I think that this is kind of a trick because the passage reads "Children with the sickle cell gene had much milder........." but the passage does not indicate if these children had one copy of the gene or two so we do not know if the are hetero or homo (no jokes please), so I think this question is dubious. Yea by the way I also got this one wrong.
