Hi Carcass, Thanks for the prompt response, this questions is a part of Jamboree question bank.
And thank god you too think that there is some issue with the question...:)

I am planning to take GMAT in months time from now. It will be very much helpful if you can let me know what kind of material should I be using in order to avoide such questions and focus on proper practice.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the caveat Aditya, I guess it will be better to stick to Manhattan and OG Material then.

its a complete disaster question ,, firstly it's not 1980's but 1980s or '80s.
The question says that the promises were made by the hotels ( modified with a relative clause) that would have work for these workers . option C does not reveal who made the promise. Further the option restricts work availability to a single hotel and supplant possibility with certainty.

Thanks for the help Wazza and Sidhrt.
I do have MGMAT Advanced Quant workbook and Official Guide for GMAT Quantitative and Verbal Review. I am keeping official material for the last two weeks as it contains only about 300 questions each. However I am going ahead with MGMAT guides as you guys have suggested.
