Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
I am studying verbal deductive reasoning section. About the captured sentences, i wonder why the Examples (ii) is not clearlys saying whether or not it might both?

i think (ii) says clearly, it will rain tomorrown if it is not snow.

can anybody correct me?

is it the context that, we know it will rain if it is not snow, but we don’t know it will still rain if it is snow ?

It will rain tomorrow unless it snows : What do you mean by this? It means if it snows tomorrow then we are not expecting the rain. But if it doesn’t snow tomorrow then we can surely say rain will come. Both cannot happen here

Note: "Wether or not" is considered redundant in GMAT

Yes i got it. But i think the sentence "It will rain tmrw unless it snows" is already clear enough. Like you said, it can’t happen both without ’not both’ too.

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
Hi, could someone help me to provide the detailed explaination for this CR question please

In Nurica, investors who believe they are the victims of malpractice by their financial advisors can file a claim with a government agency. The agency arbitrates the dispute unless a settlement is reached before the hearing date. Of those claims that reached the arbitration stage, a smaller proportion resulted in restitution for the investor in 1995 than in 1994. Nonetheless, a larger proportion of all the claims filed resulted in restitution in 1995 than in 1994.

Which of the following is most strongly supported by the information given?

A. The proportion of claims filed that were unfounded was higher in 1995 than in 1994.
B. The average amount awarded to investors whose claims were arbitrated by the agency was lower in 1995 than in 1994.
C. The average amount of restitution of settlement was higher in 1995 than in 1994
D. There were fewer arbitrators available to hear claims in 1995 than in 1994.
E. A larger proportion of claims settled prior to arbitration resulted in restitution in 1995 than in 1994.

A larger proportion of claims settled prior to arbitration resulted in restitution in 1995 than in 1994. The answer is E.

This is a good " inference" question. I weigh this as 700 level. But if you catch the discrepancy it’s very easy. Let’s say there are 1000 cases in total and 100 cases have resulted in arbitration ( I hope you are well aware that arbitration only happens when the settlement doesn’t happen between investor and advisor ). Ok , now in these 100 cases, a smaller proportion resulted in restitution for investors in 1995 than in 1994. So we can take Resitution to be 20 in 1995 and 30 in 1994 out of 100. But when we consider overall cases (i.e 1000 ) we find that a larger proportion of all claims resulted in restitution in 1995 than in 1994. So we can take the total restitution to be 250 in 2015 and 200 in 2014. Are you able to catch the discrepancy now? The only way more no of restitution for investors can happen in 2015 is when the settlement happened btw the investor and advisor before the case went to arbitration. In these settlements, more no of investors were restituted in 2015 than in 2014 . As simple as that.

Q1. The Larynxtown industrial zone is infested with rats. The municipality introduced DDA poison, improving the situation, but resulting in the death of many Klacktop birds. To prevent the death of the Klacktops, DDB poison was introduced which resulted in the death of many Gellowtop frogs. Some of the public believe that since the rat infestation poses a significant threat to the Larynxtown citizens’ health, any measures, irrelevant of the harm caused to wildlife, must be taken to cease it. The industrial zone neighbors the habitats of certain wildlife species that are protected by law so the introduction of poisons is probably not the solution to this particular infestation. In the argument given, the two portions in boldface play which of the following roles? (A) The first provides support for the argument’s main position; the second objects to this position. (B) The first states a position that challenges that supported by the argument’s conclusion; the second is evidence used to further support that conclusion. (C) The first challenges the main position of the argument; the second gives support to that challenge. (D) The first describes evidence that supports the argument’s conclusion; the second is that conclusion. (E) The first is a position that opposes that established by the argument; the second is a conclusion to the argument.

Although the ratio of physicians to total population is about the same in the United States and Canada, the United States has 33 percent more surgeons per capita. Clearly, this is the reason people in the United States undergo 40 percent more operations per capita than do Canadians.

The explanation given above rests on an assumption that:

(A) patients in the United States do not have a greater need for surgery than do patients in Canada.
(B) the population of the United States is not larger than that of Canada.
(C) United States patients sometimes travel to Canada for certain kinds of surgery.
(D) General practitioners in the United States do not as a rule examine a who is a candidate for surgery before sending the patient to a surgeon.
(E) There are no unnecessary surgical operations performed in Canada.

the answer is A.. can anyone explain why A?

The author came to that conclusion assuming that the patients in both countries have the same need for surgeries.

For example: If the author said, people in America eat unhealthy and therefore, need to get surgeries more often. Then he won’t be able to come to that conclusion.
