Classic % mind bender. Immediately go to the board on this one. Set up a ratio and analyze. C is the trap answer here, so beware.

(A) has to be it. We are talking about ratios, not numbers of ducks in general.

MBA2RAN, please don't post the answers along with the questions. Please give an opportunity for others to solve it and have discussion before you give out the answer.

These are great questions, would love to solve them before knowing the answers.

I didn`t notice the OA, but yeah, it is better to wait for a little discussion before divulging the answer.

At one time, European and Japanese companies tried to imitate their American rivals. Today, American appliance manufacturers import European scientists to lead their research staffs; American automakers design cars that mimic the styling of German, Italian, and French imports; and American electronics firms boast in their advertising of â€œJapanese-styleâ€

5. Johnson is on firm ground when he asserts that the early editors of Dickinsonâ€™s poetry often distorted her intentions. Yet Johnsonâ€™s own, more faithful, text is still guilty of its own forms of distortion. To standardize Dickinsonâ€™s often indecipherable handwritten punctuation by the use of the dash is to render permanent a casual mode of poetic phrasing that Dickinson surely never expected to see in print. It implies that Dickinson chose the dash as her typical mark of punctuation when, in fact, she apparently never made any definitive choice at all.
Which of the following best summarizes the authorâ€™s main point?
(A) Although Johnson is right in criticizing Dickinsonâ€™s early editors for their distortion of her work, his own text is guilty of equally serious distortions.
(B) Johnsonâ€™s use of the dash in his text of Dickinsonâ€™s poetry misleads readers about the poetâ€™s intentions.
(C) Because Dickinson never expected her poetry to be published, virtually any attempt at editing it must run counter to her intentions.
(D) Although Johnsonâ€™s attempt to produce a more faithful text of Dickinsonâ€™s poetry is well-meaning, his study of the material lacks sufficient thoroughness.
(E) Dickinsonâ€™s editors, including Johnson, have failed to deal adequately with the problem of deciphering Dickinsonâ€™s handwritten manuscripts.

6. A law requiring companies to offer employees unpaid time off to care for their children will harm the economic competitiveness of our nationâ€™s businesses. Companies must be free to set their own employment policies without mandated parental-leave regulations.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the conclusion of the argument above?
(A) A parental-leave law will serve to strengthen the family as a social institution in this country.
(B) Many businesses in this country already offer employees some form of parental leave.
(C) Some of the countries with the most economically competitive businesses have strong parental-leave regulations.
(D) Only companies with one hundred or more employees would be subject to the proposed parental-leave law.
(E) In most polls, a majority of citizens say they favor passage of a parental-leave law.

I could come across the critical reasoning collection 700-800 level and I must say it was a real good compilation..but I could also find that the questions are taken mostly from the mocks..many questions were from mgmat mocks...does the compilation also include gmatprep questions as well?? If yes i guess I should use the material only for revision purpose at the end as doing it earlier would inflate my scores and the tests wont predict my actual standing...

Another questions apart from the aforementioned compilation, where from should we practice CR to grow upon confidence and fare well on the mocks!!!!
