GMAT plus is a bootlegged version of ETS GMAT tests. Whatever questions you see in Kaplan or any other books/courses are either cloned or copied verbatim. That said, you should watch out for typos, insertions, omissions and incorrect answers.

Lets look at the following question from GMATPLUS

Although many art patrons can readily differentiate a good debenture from an undesirable one, they are much less expert in distinguishing good paintings and poor ones, authentic art and fakes.

B. far less expert in distinguishing good paintings from poor ones, authentic art from
C. much less expert when it comes to distinguishing good paitings and poor ones, authentic art from
D. far less expert in distinguishing good paintings and poor ones, authentic art and
E. far less expert when it comes to distinguishing between good paiting, poor ones, authentic art, and

IMHO, the answer is wrong, and there are typos and omissions.

lets figure out the errors!

Unless i didnt understand the SC, the answer should indeed be B.

Distinguish X from Y is the correct idiom

IMO, Gmat+ is quite good, there might be some errors...but you can always post the controversial one's here...or ask a professor of english about them.

I have taken the GMAT , and i have found GMAT+ to be an invaluable tool for practice (especially the verbal section)

see what works for ya

Besides understandability, I expect complement--than--for "less" in "far less" in gmat.

(cool = less warm, warm = less cool)

less than ..what?

IMO, we should not look for a stereo type without checking if its really required.

What does "far less" signify then?

I would rather prefer "much/still less"

"far less" means "considerably less"
Choice B is correct.

Best,

Although many art patrons can readily differentiate a good debenture from an undesirable one, they are far less .......

According to the context, it's ill-suited to place the idiom "much less or let alone" as a meaning of CERTAINLY NOT.
In this case the author desire to demonstrate that "though patrons know very well about debenture, they can but are not very good at discriminate both painting and genuine arts.

Hi ,
Please help me with the following sentence. Is it correct to say-"The High Court’s rulings in the cases involving assisted suicides among college-going teens from single-parent families, which were overturned by the Supreme Court last month, have been re-instituted by a special interventionist order by the President."?
I read the explaination which says this is sentence is correct, as there is no VERB between WHICH and its ANTECEDENT (‘rulings’ in this case)….
But as far as i know WHICH qualifies the noun precedes it (families in this case)..

Does it depend here on the meaning or on a grammatical rule,?
