Hi GMAT Clubbers.

I have been researching GMAT Parallel Reasoning and Similar Reasoning questions for days now, and have not found a single example of an official GMAT Parallel Reasoning question that resembles the Parallel Reasoning questions found on the LSAT.

There are many examples of GMAT Parallel Reasoning or GMAT Similar Reasoning questions around, but ALL of the ones that I have found were created by GMAT test prep companies. There is one example on GMAT Club that is supposedly from the OG, but I searched for it on the Internet, and it turned out to be a practice question made by an LSAT prep company.

The only official question that I have found that at all resembles a Parallel Reasoning or Similar Reasoning question is the following one.

One of the limiting factors in human physical performance is the amount of oxygen that is absorbed by the muscles from the bloodstream. Accordingly, entrepreneurs have begun selling at gymnasiums and health clubs bottles of drinking water, labeled "SuperOXY," that has extra oxygen dissolved in the water. Such water would be useless in improving physical performance, however, since the amount of oxygen in the blood of people who are exercising is already more than the muscle can absorb.

Which of the following, if true, would serve the same function in the argument as the statement in boldface?

(A) world-class athletes turn in record performance without such water

(B) frequent physical exercise increases the body’s ability to take in and use oxygen

(C) the only way to get oxygen into the bloodstream so that it can be absorbed by the muscles is through the lungs

(D) lack of oxygen is not the only factor limiting human physical performance

(E) the water lost in exercising can be replaced with ordinary tap water

So, I have the following question.

Has anyone who has taken the GMAT in the last few years seen a Parallel Reasoning or Similar Reasoning question that resembles the ones on the LSAT?
