Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
But the noun here is plural ’Books’ and countable, so in this context it should be "are none"

FahmidIBA
None is the pronoun form of no. None means ’not one’ or ’not any’. We use it as a pronoun to replace countable and uncountable nouns. We use it as subject or object: Example: Slorne stared ... and seemed to try to find some strength which would let her speak. But none came. (No strength came.) - My mother had two brothers. My father had none. (My father didn’t have any brothers.) - A: What reasons did he give? B: None. When none is the subject, the verb is either singular or plural depending on what it is referring to. - I’m always looking for inspiration. None ever comes. - She’s always looking for ideas. None ever come. - All the books have been sold there is none left. (not one) Warning: We don’t use none where we mean no one or nobody: - They had a wonderful time and luckily no one was injured.

All are sold out so there is none left. So singular.

A bite from the tsetse fly invariably paralyzes its victims unless an antidote is administered within two hours.

(A) its victims unless an antidote is administered
(B) its victims unless an antidote can be administered
(C) its victims unless an antidote was administered
(D) its victims unless an antidote is administered to the victims
(E) its victims unless they receive an antidote

Need help for this.

E

A not E

D and E talks about "an antidote" to victims or they ..it should ideally be antidotes

A seems to be a general statement

Q2. Some animals, such as dolphins, dogs, and African grey parrots, seem to exhibit cognitive functions typically associated with higher-order primates such as chimpanzees, gorillas, and humans. Some parrots, for example, have vocabularies of hundreds of words that they can string together in a comprehensible syntax.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion above? A. Dolphins can be trained to assist divers in ocean rescues. B.

Chimpanzees can memorize long sequences of key punches on machines that dispense food. E. Alex does not exhibit aggression when offered a gesture that he specifically requested. Difficulty - Hard

Q2. Credit Card Spokesperson: "It is to the benefit of all credit customers that we increase the interest rates of those cardholders who present a high risk of defaulting on their obligations.

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
Researchers claim that analogical thinking causes scientific discoveries. They used the works of famous scientists in an attempt to prove that analogy brings about creativity and thereby changes in knowledge. They argued that distant analogies those scientists used could develop a new framework in a certain domain or even form a new domain - the more distant the analogies, the more creative the outcomes.
Which of the following statements, if true, would best support the last claim made by the researchers?

Analogy items are frequently used in IQ tests to measure analytical ability of a person.Researchers noted low correlation between creativity and intelligence scores, which are generally derived from tests that have many analogy questions.Inflexible thinking is fixed on a single plane, whereas creative thinking operates on multiple planes, creating “analogy bridges” among various planes.Local analogies could be used to fill in a framework in a rather well agreed-on field.People who do not think analogically sometimes come up with creative ideas.
