Today I started studying for the verbal part, specifically CR part and frankly I have a few questions that I can't figure out.

In an CR stimulus it states:

1....."Headaches can often be effectively relieved by over the counter medication".... ?

If we assume the aforementioned statement is TRUE, and it is a MUST BE TRUE question type, can we assume that...

"Some headaches cannot be relieved with over the counter medication"

Based on a book that I am reading we can't assume that.

My question is Why? What can we assume from the statement above?
It's common sense to me that since headaches can often be effectively relieved, at least in some cases they cannot be relieved.

2."... as foreign steel produces were in many cases unable to compete effectively under the burden of the newly imposed tariffs." (talks about country A)

This statement is in a stimulus of a MUST BE TRUE question type. An answer choice, which the book I am reading claims is wrong, states that

"Some foreign steel produces were able to compete effectively in country A even after the new tariffs were imposed".

What is wrong with this AC? The statement in the stimulus states that in many cases foreign steel produces were unable to compete... Why can't we assume that at least in some cases they were able to compete?

I would really appreciate an input.

For what it's worth, I agree with you and disagree with the book you're reading (which book is it?). Your question hinges on a semantic distinction: can the word 'often' sometimes mean 'always'? Can the word 'some' sometimes mean 'all'? I don't think so, but in any case, these are not the types of distinctions that are ever tested on the GMAT, so you'll never need to worry about this issue on the real test.

Thank you very much for responding to my post

Question number 1 is also answered in gmatclub but there are so many different choices mentioned that I am not sure that the official answer mentioned is the correct one.

Regarding question number 2. I found it gmatclub! and you have already given an answer to it!!!!!! )) sorry I didn't search before I post the question.

You say exactly the same thing. That you can't distinguish between the correct AC and the one that you/I support could also be correct.

last-year-the-government-of-country-a-imposed-large-tariffs-100777.html

As far as AC B of the CR question of the link above, the POWERSCORE BOOK says: The stimulus tells us that "foreign steel produces were in many cases unable to compete effectively under the burden of the newly imposed tariffs". This does not imply that some foreign steel producers were able to compete effectively. Be careful not to assume that "some could compete" just because you are not explicitly told "all could not compete". Although this answer COULD be true, it does not have to be true.

It says that that correct answer is AC A.

I still can't understand why it is not B. I think that the statement of AC B is supported by the stimulus.

Thanks a million! +1
