Hey guys, I got 40 on this test for the verbal section but 7 of my 9 wrong answers were SC. I'm still confused about them so please try not only answering them but provide some reasoning for your choices. Thanks in advance!

They are all fairly elementary according to GMAT (2 appeared as q1 and q2 in the test!) but I find them confusing.

1. One report concludes that many schools do not have, or likely to have, enough computers to use them effectively.

or
nor
or are
nor are they
nor or not

2. A new hair growth drug is being sold for three times the price, per miligram, as the drug's maker charges for another product with the same active ingredients.

as
than
that
of what
at which

3. Often major economic shifts are so gradual as to be indistinguishable at first from ordinary fluctuations in the financial markets

so gradual as to be indistinguishable
so gradual so that they can be indistinguishable
so gradual that they are unable to be distinguished
gradual enough not to be distinguishable
gradual enough so that one cannot distinguish them

KUDOS
1. D for STRICT parallelism

many schools do not have -----> noun + do not have
"nor"
are they likely to have ------> noun + likely to have

2. -----> This one is "CODE RED". choice A is what I am talking about.
C is correct.
a new hair-growth drug is being sold for three times the price "that" the drug's maker charges ..... etc

3. A

idiom : so "adjective" as to + verb

so X as to Y ----> emphasizes X. So "beautiful" as to be a gift to this world.

Well I mean that in question 2 "as" has been breached. We know that "as" is used to compare actions.

choice A may sound tempting but makes a wrong comparison - drug sale VS "price"

Security breach = CODE RED tempting but extremely harmful like a trojan horse.
