Hi souvonik2k! Carolyn from Magoosh here

I think this question is just worded in a really confusing way. I believe that the question is simply asking "what happened to the unemployment rate after each recession?" In both the late 1940s and the early 1990s, the recessions (indicated by big spikes in unemployment rates) were followed by sharp drops in the unemployment rate. It's definitely confusing that the words "compared with" are used here, but I think the key is that we're just being asked about the trend in the unemployment rate. And if we look at the unemployment rate from 1950 on, and the unemployment rate from around 1993 on, there is a steep decrease. So I think that's all the question is looking for here

Hope that helps!
-Carolyn

Thanks Carolyn MagooshExpert for your explanation. But I am afraid can we expect such IR questions in the real test. Currently I am struggling with IR as even mistake in a single part of question does not give any credit for the entire question.

Hi souvonik2k,

I think it's very unlikely that you'll see a question that is worded this badly on the real GMAT. So instead of stressing out about it, try to focus on building the essential skills needed to dominate IR questions First of all, check out these Tips for GMAT IR, and also a free IR eBook! Those cover all the essential skills and strategies for the Integrated Reasoning section.

Please do not post questions like this - that is a horrible photo that is 8 MB. I can understand taking a screenshot with a good quality for IR but not like this....
