Hey guys so in critical reasoning, I’m able to solve most easy and medium level questions with very few errors but I’m having trouble getting the harder questions right. Any tips?

Change the question-solving pattern to a ratio of 30% Easy/Medium to 70% Hard, gradually increasing the number of hard questions. You’re on your way there; keep going. You’ll get there, Possibly.

option D has " them" which doesn’t have any antecedent, so D can’t be the answer.

of elephant is prepositional phrase ( so them cannot be denoted to PP)

Also population is not counted, elephants can be and thus we can’t use many and have to use much. Very similar to the case of cars (many) and traffic (much)

Option A has a same problem as them has no antecedent. It seems that them refers to elephants but elephants is not the subject of the sentence. So, that’s why option A is incorrect. Hope it helps!
