GMAT sometimes provides support by quoting examples that similar situation has happened before or in some other country (generally in answer choices). Is there any example of this kind of logic ever being true.

- Consider this for example: Joshua is one of the most thanked members on GMATClub. Hence, Joshua will most likely score above 700 on his GMAT.

Which of the following below would help you evaluate the argument above?

Choice: Whether, Rosy, another member who was one of the most thanked members on GMATClub, scored above 700 or not.

This sort of choice is never true. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, you can assume that answers like these are generally traps. Since you don't know whether Josh and Rosy are similar to each other, you have no way to know whether Rosy's situation is applicable to Josh's situation. There will probably be an answer choice that has more direct bearing on Josh, specifically; that will probably be the right answer.

However an option giving you information on all others could be valid.
