Hey,

I was wondering whether anyone has a list of GMAT questions that seem deceptively easy but are in fact hard to solve. Think for example the Monty Hall Problem. I've came across a few of these on the GMAT, but would love to do more.

If anyone has one or more of these questions, please let me know!

Thanks!

Best,

This is an interesting question. One way to answer it would be to look for questions that a lot of people get wrong, but that few people guess on. That would tell you that people think they're getting those questions right when they first solve them - in other words, they seem easy, but look hard.

Based on our data from GMAT Navigator, here are a handful of Official Guide 2018 questions that fit that definition well:

DS 46
DS 48
DS 351
DS 370
DS 379
DS 386
DS 403
DS 311
DS 356
DS 296
DS 310
DS 321
DS 350
DS 357
DS 267
DS 277
DS 326
DS 376
DS 382
PS 205
PS 125
PS 140
PS 173

It's not surprising to me that most of these are DS questions, since those are often more 'deceptive' than PS.
