6 Questions and 5 correct, 1 wrong took me 14 minutes for this passage( Including the reading time and attempting for 6 questions)
CBDBBBC

Also would like your suggestion whether overall 14 minutes is a long time for a passage that contains 6 questions

5. According to the passage, scholars of women's history should refrain from doing which of the following?

(A) Relying on traditional historical sources when women's oral narratives are unavailable
(B) Focusing on the influence of political rhetoric on women's perceptions to the exclusion of other equally important factors
(C) Attempting to discover the cultural and historical factors that influence the stories women tell
(D) Assuming that the conventions of women's written autobiographies are similar to the conventions of women's oral narratives
(E) Accepting women's oral narratives less critically than they accept women's written histories

workout Can you please explain this question? I got only this question incorrect out of total 6 questions

I marked Option B as in the passage it is mentioned that other equally important factors like cultural and historical factors must also be considered which the story tellers are unaware of
I was stuck in Options B and E and ultimately marked Option B

vasuca10

Option B is a trap answer. I eliminated option B due to the phrase "to the exclusion of other equally important factors". The author didn't talk about the exclusion of the other important factors. Hence it is out of scope. Answers to all the questions must and should lie in the passage.

Got 6/6 correct in 11:12 min including 3 min to read the passage!

Passage Map:
Current feminist theory, in validating women’s own stories of their experience, has encouraged scholars of women’s history to view the use of women’s oral narratives as the methodology, next to the use of women’s written autobiography, that brings historians closest to the “reality” of women’s lives. => Use oral narratives with written autobiography

Scholars of women’s history should, however, be as cautious about accepting oral narratives at face value as they already are about written memories. => Be skeptical about oral narratives

That's great work!

However, given that the passage only has one paragraph, taking three minutes to read the passage is one place where you could have cut down on time.

This is crucial as we know that a minute saved on the GMAT can be utilized to solve another SC question.

To save that one minute, or to read any passage effectively, it is important to identify what is to be read and what is not to be read.

Please watch this Youtube video to learn more about our reading principles.

Hope that helps.

All the best.

Thanks,
