Do you like to point out the assumptions? Do you like to home in on logical flaws like a detective and analyze precisely how arguments could be made better, or worse? Then GMAT Critical Reasoning is for you. So start dissecting op-ed pieces and cutting the contestants on television debates down to size. When you see your GMAT score, you'll be glad you did!

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the passage above?

A. Mastering the Critical Reasoning question type will ensure an excellent GMAT score.

B. No question type contained on the GMAT is represented in more sections of the GMAT than is Critical Reasoning.

C. Op-ed pieces and Television debates contain content that is related in same way to material tested in GMAT Critical Reasoning.

D. Logical flaws and assumptions are question types that appear only on the GMAT.

E. Thinking like a detective has no impact on one's GMAT Score.

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the passage above?

Easy and strange question.

A. Mastering the Critical Reasoning question type will ensure an excellent GMAT score.
The passage just implies that GMAT score will improve, not implies anything about an excellent GMAT score.

B. No question type contained on the GMAT is represented in more sections of the GMAT than is Critical Reasoning.
There is no information indicated that CR is represented on GMAT. The passage just mentioned that CR is a part of GMAT.

C. Op-ed pieces and Television debates contain content that is related in same way to material tested in GMAT Critical Reasoning.
Correct. This choice fills missing link between two facts:
1. start dissecting op-ed pieces and cutting the contestants on television debates down to size
2. The GMAT score will be improved.

D. Logical flaws and assumptions are question types that appear only on the GMAT.
No information indicated that those things appear only on the GMAT. Just indicated that those things do appear on the GMAT

E. Thinking like a detective has no impact on one's GMAT Score.
In fact, the passage indicated that thinking like a detective could effect the GMAT score.

That! Right There! That's why I posted this question. It makes your mind wander. Puts a little dent in the concentration. We will face the questions in gmat that will relate to our expertise and those are the ones we need to be more careful about

No doubt, C is the best option

But in C, although the word "related" alleviates the problem, the word "same" could be a problem.

until now, I still cannot see how content from TV debates will help test takers to do well in GMAT.
The question is interesting though.
