holy creep, this sucked almost 10 minutes , !@#$ . anyway managed to nail this down , except q 1 , which i got wrong after giving almost 3 min to that one single question, finished reading the passage in 3:16 min, and then q 1 sucked almost 3 min. i should have got q1 right in less than 1 min

seems Parkinson's law is at play here .

The passage quotes:
"Many families retain ties in Latin America and move back and forth between their present and former communities. "

Hence the answer choice B for question 1 seems to be incorrect.

Foe question 2, why is answer choice E incorrect.
The passage quotes ".The issue of bilingual education has, nevertheless, served to unite the leadership of the nation’s Hispanic communities", which seems to indicate that E is the correct answer.

Explanation please

1. It can be inferred from the passage that one of the characteristics of immigrant groups to the United States has traditionally been that, after immigration, relatively few members of the group
(A) became politically active in their new communities
(B) moved back and forth repeatedly between the United States and their former communities Directly infer able from the text
(C) used their native languages in their new communities. This is not a characteristic
(D) suffered discrimination in their new communities at the hands of the cultural majority. NOPE
(E) sought assimilation into the dominant culture of the new communities they were entering


2. The passage suggests that one of the effects of the debate over bilingual education is that it has
(A) given the Hispanic community a new-found pride in its culture. totally out..!
(B) hampered the education of Spanish-speaking students. not infer able
(C) demonstrated the negative impact on imposing English as the official United States language. No demonstration of this is there
(D) provided a common banner under which the Spanish-speaking communities could rally. Read the last lines of the paragraph
(E) polarized the opinions of local Spanish-speaking community leaders


3. In lines 38-39, the phrase “different political agendas” refers specifically to conflicting opinions regarding the
(A) means of legislating the assimilation of minorities into United States society
(B) methods of inducing Hispanics to adopt English as their primary language. no methods suggested
(C) means of achieving nondiscriminatory education for Hispanics. same as B
(D) official given responsibility for decisions regarding bilingual education. nope..!!
(E) extent to which Hispanics should blend into the larger United States society. this gives the clear picture.


4. In lines 64-65 the author says that “It would be unwise to require the universal use of English.” One reason for this, according to the author, is that
(A) [color=#00ff00]it is not clear yet whether requiring the universal use of English would promote or hinder the education of children whose English is limited[/color]
(B) the nation’s Hispanic leaders have shown that bilingual education is most effective when it includes the maintenance of the Spanish language in the schools. SHOWN (X)
(C) requiring the universal use of English would reduce the cohesion of the nation’s Hispanic communities and leadership
(D) the question of language in the schools should be answered by those who evaluate bilingual education, not by people with specific political agendas. Rubbish
(E) it has been shown that bilingual education is necessary to avoid disadvantaging in their general learning children whose English is limited. Shown means proven, which is not


5. In the last paragraph, the author of the passage is primarily concerned with discussing
(A) reasons against enacting a measure that would mandate the forced inclusion of immigrant groups within the dominant United culture
(B) the virtues and limitations of declaring English the official language of the United States
(C) the history of attitudes within the Hispanic community toward bilingual education in the United States. History (X)
(D) the importance for immigrant groups of maintaining large segments of their culture to pass on to their children. No importance discussed
(E) the difference in cultures between Hispanics and other immigrant groups in the United States. No differences suggested


Quite enough of detailing
Well that is something I needed
Thnx 4 the post
I am planning to give gmat in April
