Hi Nightmare007,

Could you please throw some light on the "new approach" which worked for you?

Although I took just 7 mins on the passage and got all the answers right, I have noticed this happens only if I can relate to the passage. On the contrary, I screw up some medium difficulty passages with a low accuracy , if I cannot relate to the topics.
So just trying to discover various approaches by which I can consistently do well, regardless of the topic of the passage.

Thanks !

2. The passage suggests which of the following about the empirical study of small firms' role?

A. Anecdotal evidence does not support the theory that small firms' role is significant.
B. Degrees of market turbulence are the primary indicator of small firms' role.
C. An examination of new niches created by small firms has provided important data for the analysis of such firms' role.
D. Case studies have provided reliable evidence to answer major questions concerning small firms' role.
E. A more precise definition of the term "small firm" is crucial to making a conclusive analysis about small firms' role.

This question was tricky for me .

However, empirical knowledge about the relative roles of large and small firms is generally based upon anecdotal evidence and case studies, and such evidence has proved inadequate to answer major questions concerning the role of small firms across various industries and nations. An additional difficulty is that it is not obvious what criteria one should use to distinguish small firms from large ones. While a "small firm" is often defined as an enterprise with fewer than 500 employees, research studies of small firms use a wide variety of definitions.

Only A and E are worth comparing
But from the excerpt we can not deduce A as it does not give any evidence that small firms' role is significant or not significant all it says says that any conclusion can not be drawn from the said evidence .
