Sorry for the delayed response.

I don't know the source of all the questions, but the links are as follows: [4th one is definitely official]
1. https://gmatclub.com/forum/advertisers- ... 15464.html
2. https://gmatclub.com/forum/despite-all- ... 67046.html
3. https://gmatclub.com/forum/over-the-las ... 53344.html
4. https://gmatclub.com/forum/qotd-meat-fr ... 52790.html

Could you please suggest whether these are worth spending time on?

Regards

My turn to apologize for the slow response! Honestly, I wouldn't worry at all about any of them, other than the very last one -- the OG question. And even that one is pretty tough, so I wouldn't assume that it's a sign that you're fundamentally struggling on "evaluate the argument" questions. If you feel like you really don't fundamentally understand how those questions work, that might be reason to worry -- but of the four you mentioned, three are of very dubious quality. :)


Thank you for pointing that out sire. I don't fundamentally doubt my understanding but wasn't able to solve those 4. Your last sentence made my life better than before :-D
Thank you very much sensie.
Have a good day !!

Sorry everybody, we're postponing this week's session to THURSDAY at the usual time. Thanks to a horrendous traffic jam between Pune and Bombay, our esteemed producer is unavailable to perform his usual duties on Wednesday. The 148-km journey, I'm told, might take a total of 34 hours.

Or something like that. The numbers are approximate. ;)

See you all on THURSDAY at 7:30 a.m. Pacific/9:00 p.m. IST!

Hi gmatbusters,

Statement 1: Two million pounds were --> here the subject becomes "individual pound currency notes". This is nonsensical because you had spent the amount and not notes.

So statement 2 should be correct, because the implicit meaning is "the amount was spent on construction".

Hope that helps.

Regards
