There could be a huge debate of where the 2nd passage starts and where it ends. I even looked in official guide 2018 where it can be horridly concluded that the 2nd passage end in line 29.

I just got lost and selected a wrong answer choice. I hope I don't see such instances of bad formatting in actual GMAT.



Same thing happened with me. I also thought that the para 2 is ending at line 29 and chose the wrong option on that basis.

GMATNinjaTwo,

Hi GMATNinja, I was wondering could you please explain the difference between option B and E for Q2? I ended up picking option E but it was more of a lucky guess. Would greatly appreciate it if you could please shed some light on option B especially!

Hi,


I have a similar doubt.. For Q2, option B & option E are very similar.
How does one choose the right one?
Please help!!

Question 2
(Book Question: 515)
The second paragraph in the passage serves primarily to
A. outline the significance of the 1981 discovery of conodont remains to the debate concerning the development of the vertebrate skeleton
B. contrast the traditional view of the development of the vertebrate skeleton with a view derived from the 1981 discovery of conodont remains
C. contrast the characteristics of the ostracoderms with the characteristics of earlier soft-bodied vertebrates
D. explain the importance of the development of teeth among the earliest vertebrate predators
E. present the two sides of the debate concerning the development of the vertebrate skeleton

I was down to B and D and ended up choosing B because I thought that the 2nd passage end in line 29.
How can we eliminate option B here? Please help.
