OA's are on the very first page. For the discussions, one has to follow the forum. There is nothing called free lunch.

Can some one tell me why the answer of Q 7 is B? My choice is C. Similarly for Q 14, my choice is C but answer shows it A.

Copy and paste any debateable SC(s) into the verbal forum. I promise you will get better responses to your questions that way.

I am working on this question 7 and 14, and find out they have the same problem.
However, I searched this formula from other forum and hope this helps

ONE of the NOUN + that/who + Plural Verb
For example: He is one the persons WHO MAKE money
This is one of the cars THAT RUN on hydrogen

What would you say the average difficulty of these questions is (e.g., 700 level+)? I just did questions 21-30 and got ripped to shreds (after not doing that great on 1-20)! I had been scoring 38-40 on the Verbal section of GMATPrep the last couple of weeks, but this has shattered any confidence that I had!

These questions have crushed my verbal ego, but it's encouraging to see that others are having an equally difficult time

Any guess as to the approximate difficulty level of these questions? I hope they're 700+.

21?

21. Among lower- paid workers, union members are less likely than non union members to be enrolled in lower- end insurance plans imposing stricter limits on medical services and requiring doctors to see more patients, and spend less time with each.

a). imposing stricter limits on medical services and requiring doctors to see more patients, and spend
b). imposing stricter limits on medical services , requiring doctors to see more patients, and spending
c). that impose stricter limits on medical services, require doctors to see more patients, and spend
d). that impose stricter limits on medical services and require doctors to see more patients, and spending
e). that impose stricter limits on medical services, requiring doctors to see more patients and spending

OA says D. I am completely lost. D is so completely wrong, surely? Help!

p.s. if there was no "and" before spending, this would be correct?

Is there any document that provides explanation for these answer keys?? As this would greatly help to understand the grammatical rules or idioms for cracking the SCs in the real test..

**Note, if you did last week's test, then only concentrate on questions 36~70. If you missed last week's quiz, then all 70 are available.

Set the timer for 35 minutes. You should try not to spend more than 1 minute solving each SC if you are aiming for a 40+ verbal score.

OAs will be posted within 48hrs ---> Wednesday, 5pm (JST)

Good Luck!

Good work

Q3 is ok.
Q4 - here although 'it' refers to surface but still I feel ambiguous reference to paint cannot be ruled out. Taking into consideration the remaining choices choice A is still the best bet. Hope someone can put some light on this one.

4) Paint a rought surface i think here paint is verb acting on the noun "rough surface" second "it" clearly refers to the surface and then follwoed by "paint" in the sentense which is clearly represents the "noun".
If "it" had been used inplace of "paint" second time definetely it would have been ambiguous.
does it make sense ???

I think the answer of question 21 is not "d".
"plans + that" should be correct, and "spending" must become "and spend".
"and spending" breaks a parallel structue.
So, the correct answer is "c".

Now I think that the answer of question 21 is "d".
"impose" and "require" modify "the plans".
And "spending" is the verb of "union members".
"union members are spending less time with each"

because preposition "to+ communal ...." cannot modifies "a return", "that+..." cannot modifies "land".
