Amazing session once again!!

Can you elaborate illogical meaning conveyed by option (A) for #Q4.
Re-posting for easier analysis:

Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied, Congress has been required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it by the legislatures of two-thirds of the states.

A. was never applied, Congress has been required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do it

B. was never applied, there has been a requirement that Congress call a convention for consideration of possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

C. was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

D. has never been applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so

E. has never been applied, Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so

Assuming a query posted by non-American citizen ;) who is not aware of presence of congress/ provision in US in 2017,
does not has been required (present perfect tense - denoting an action started in past whose effects are still continuing)
make sense with provision was never applied
(simple past tense - denoting point of time event that occurred in past) How can we be 100% sure that provision may be applied now
justifying usage of present perfect in OA based on context of the sentence?

Bad news, folks: due to some last-minute scheduling conflicts for our esteemed YouTube producer, we're postponing today's webinar to Friday at 9:30 a.m. PST.

Yup, I know: that's a totally random time. If you're in Asia, that's Friday night -- and really, isn't watching a live webinar on GMAT comparisons more fun than going out anyway? I mean, it's better than a K-Pop concert. Um... right?

See you all Friday at 9:30 a.m. PST for comparisons! And then we'll (presumably) be back to Wednesdays next week.

(Edit: you deserve bonus points if you caught my "due to" error in the first sentence of this post!)

I don't know if anybody will find this useful, but here are the eight questions that I'm planning to cover in Friday's webinar on comparisons. Warning: with an extra 48 hours to mess around, odds are good that I'll change one or two before Friday. But these will give you a good starting point.

I'll be able to see how many people download the file, but if you find it particularly useful to have the questions in advance, please let me know using whatever method you'd prefer (kudos, comment, PM, etc.). If enough members really like having the questions in advance, I'll try to make this a habit...

Hi GMATNinja,

I downloaded the doc and tried to solved the questions.

Got straight forward answer for almost all of them. Do not know whether I have got plenty of them wrong or my SC skill has improved.

Waiting for the session to see how much I have scored!!

I would strongly support this. Apologize for being selfish in advance since this way we can over more qs in live sessions with
- your mouth shut for less duration- as you use :lol: Promise to owe you a grand treat in Denver since we know your obsession with food by now ;)

I would also request users to continue discussions / queries pertaining to Qs on this post instead of PM, hopefully that way we can
mutually help each other and reduce expert's load too.

It seems this is correctly replacing our Wednesday's text chat sessions in much productive manner.

Lol, thank you, adkikani! And I think you might be the first person -- EVER -- to suggest that I should spend LESS time with my mouth shut. ;)

See you all tomorrow!

Hey all! Keen to participate in my first Youtube webinar. I think I've lost track of the conversation, so apologies for doubling up on this question... but how do I tune in tomorrow?

Also will the video be uploaded after the session for those that miss it? Thanks in advance!

GMATNinja I would rather prefer that you take fewer questions but explain more (in detail) as I believe QUALITY is more important than QUANTITY while solving questions.

Also, comparisons are one of the most challenging topics (at least for me) on GMAT SC. Thanks a ton for all the efforts.

GMATNinja: Hi, Can we have this question taken up in tomorrow's webinar? (Source: Magoosh) --> Although I got it correct, but I still have problem understanding the tenses in option E.

A newly released study on the tectonic plates forming the Pacific basin indicates that by the time they had shifted even a few miles, a vast percentage of the coastline which is currently home to major world cities, because of global warming, will have already become entirely submerged.

1. by the time they had shifted even a few miles, a vast percentage of the coastline which is currently home to major world cities, because of global warming, will have already become entirely submerged
2. by the time they shift even a few miles, a vast percentage of the coastline, which is currently a home of the major world cities, will have already become entirely submerged due to global warming
3. by the time they have shifted even a few miles, a vast percentage of the coastline currently home to major world cities already will have become entirely submerged because of global warming
4. a vast percentage of the coastline that is currently home to major world cities will have already become entirely submerged due to global warming by the time they have shifted even a few miles

Hi GMATNinja,

Just downloaded the document and solved the SC problems, great questions. I believe this is a nice idea that would make the session more efficient .

I suggest sending it few hours before the session, so that ppl having it fresh in their minds during the session.

Thanks,
