I used complementary TTP material for 5 days and practised all DI tests after that I brought official DI question bank and trust me the official DI material is really helpful.
As I was timing around 2.5 minute to 3 minutes and this Official material helped to improve my timing through practise mode

Hey Completed my Gmat Focus Scored 665(Q87, V82 & DI 80) i.e equivalent to 720 classic edition, All thanks to Gmat club for the wonderful journey and especially Gmat Ninja, BB, Brunel, it really took time for preperation but it ended well as per effort
A very rookie doubt. Will colleges like isb have a low cutoff now for people giving focus edition. I mesn profile matters but like initially it was 700+ advisable. What would change with focus edition, any idea?

I am wrong, E can’t be the one because of incorrect use of verb have. it has to be singular because of as well as. So it leaves D as the best option by elimination.

Q1 - A. E’s verb agreement is wrong
Q2 -A. E is unidiomatic. It sounds weird to say contribute to significantly increase. It’s more idiomatic to say "contribute to ’a noun’" in this context

However I have a doubt on the validity of the question itself! As per my learning Due to is never used to show an action, but here due to is used to show the action ( women lose V fat), better we use Because of the difference in physiology, women who....bla bla

Q2. The most effective and precise surveying technique for determining the extent of income tax evasion in the United States is an anonymous workplace survey. This type of survey precisely reaches the target group, individuals with an income, and, because those individuals do not provide names or personal information, confidentiality is assured.

The plan overlooks the fact that a significant number of income tax evaders may have no legal source of income or place of employment. B. The plan overlooks the fact that some people may lie for fear of being identified as tax evaders. C. The plan does not distinguish between tax evasion and the legitimate use of tax loopholes. D. The plan does not distinguish between tax evasion and the legitimate use of tax loopholes. E. The plan’s anonymity prevents government officials from identifying income tax evaders and prosecuting them. Difficulty - Hard

CR Questions November - 20 :

Q1. A recent survey shows that the use of public libraries has dwindled to 19% of what it was 30 years ago. The digital age has led to huge amounts of information being placed at the fingertips of people while they sit in their own homes. Because libraries serve an important function, their services should not be ceased.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the author’s conclusion?

A. The libraries that existed 30 years ago acted as important meeting places for intellectuals and public figures.

B. Sources of information, whether digital or hard copy, should always be verified for accuracy.

C. Digital versions of many books are being created that can be bought via stores on the internet.

D. In some areas, due to a lack of competition between service providers, Internet prices are extremely high.

E. Libraries demand funding which is partly provided by taxes paid by the public.

Q2. Since the introduction of low-cost airlines, delays at the nation’s busiest airports have increased by 50 percent. To combat this problem, takeoff and landing slots at the busiest airports must be re-allocated with a significant preference towards traditional airlines, or those not considered low-cost airlines, over low-cost airlines.

If true, each of the following casts doubt on the effectiveness of the solution proposed above EXCEPT

A. The primary cause of delays at the nation’s busiest airports is weather-related.

B. The delays caused by traditional airlines have continually increased, while those caused by low-cost airlines have continually decreased since the introduction of low-cost airlines.

C. Low-cost airlines account for a higher proportion of the delays than do non-low-cost airlines.

D Traditional airlines already account for approximately ninety percent of all takeoff and landing slots at the nation’s busiest airports, as low-cost airlines tend to fly into and out of less busy airports.

E. Low-cost airlines, on average, account for a much lower proportion of the delays than do non-low-cost airlines.
