Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to do a quick check to see whether anyone would know which of the below sentences would be acceptable/preferred on the GMAT SC:

1) Out of the 20 people who registered, only 5 were successfully admitted.
2) From the 20 people who registered, only 5 were successfully admitted.

Is there a difference? I would say that the second option is definitely correct, but is the first one necessarily wrong?

Thank you!

It doesn't seem wrong. You can write to e-gmat folks if you don't get a confirmed answer in a few days.

I don't see anything wrong with the 1st statement. In the 2nd statement, however, From looks forced. As if it was not needed here but put just to mean the same thing as the previous sentence does.

P. S. From in GMAT is mostly a part of idiomatic phrase from x to y.
