Despite the fact that dinosaurs have always been classified as members of the reptile family (their very name derives from the greek word 'terrible lizard'), recent evidence indicates that at least some dinosaurs were physiologically more similar to birds than to reptiles.These so called ornithischians possessed the upright posture, specialised food processing definitions and other skeletal features that are normally associated with endohermic creatures.

Which of the following can be reasonably inferred from the above?

a)The biological similarities between dinosaurs and reptiles are merely superficial
b)modern day birds are the direct descendents of dinosaurs
c)No dinosaurs were physiologically more similar to reptiles than to birds
d)Reptiles are not endothermic creatures
e)Only birds are endothermic creatures

another vote for D.

Argument : Some Dinos are more similar to Birds
A. "superficial" is not suggested
B. not suggested
C. too extreme......only some dino's were more similar to birds..not all
D. can be inferred
E. too extreme and not suggested. passage suggests that birds were endothermic but not that ALL birds are endothermic.

hey people

This site is a great is a great idea for people that are studying for their GMAT. Hopefully I can get plenty of help from all of you as well as helping out others.

I am currently in my 3rd week of studying for my GMAT using the Princeton review book. I am having trouble with the medium verbal questions. I am thinking of getting an English Grammar book. Are there any recommendations? Is there a better way to approach this? I am trying to master the sentence correction part of the verbal section. Please let me know if there are any recommendations.

Thanks

Hey Prince, welcome aboard. There's really no fun way to learn grammar that I know of. But some lightweight books that I have and refer to that I find useful (from the prospective of a native english speaker) are:

- Princeton Review Grammar Smart
- Good Grief, Good Grammar -- by Dianna Booher
- The Elements of Style -- by Strunk & White

Also, advice I always give is, read as much as you can, whenever you can.
