besides - other than me

Any particular reason why C is wrong. I think It's just like D, only aggravated is used instead of irritated.

Thanks.

aggravated is used for Situation and not for person, here irritated in more preferable

Further more, I do agree with you Preat these questions seems do not of GMAT type, they are from BARRON's GMAT BOOK

Yes, I remember this one question from Barron. I would not practice too much from that book. Even their CD-CAT is so badly done. You can it as soon as you can

Thanks for helping words, PAUL and PREAT
I have leaned toward BARRONS just for SCs as i am a bit poor in SC-Skills

Anyways, let me buzz off BARRONS
