If you ask me if you chill. Nothing is in your hands for the time being. You can only comment/ request once they give final verdict.

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
Biologist: In Region X, the average horn mass and body length of adult bighorn sheep has dropped over the past several decades. The cause is probably regulations prohibiting hunting of smaller animals. These regulations have undoubtedly given smaller sheep an advantage in surviving to a reproductive age. Therefore, genes for smaller adult size most likely have spread through the population.

The two sections in boldface play which of the following roles in the biologist’s argument?

A The first is the main conclusion; the second is an observation for which a causal explanation is presented.
B The first is a premise supporting the second; the second is the main conclusion, but not the only conclusion.
C The first describes a phenomenon for which the main conclusion presents an explanation; the second is a subsidiary conclusion supporting the main conclusion.
D The first is a subsidiary conclusion that supports the main conclusion; the second is a premise that independently supports the main conclusion.
E The first suggests a causal explanation for a phenomenon described by the main conclusion; the second provides further evidence to support that explanation.

BF1- In Region X, the average horn mass and body length of adult bighorn sheep has dropped over the past several decades. BF2- genes for smaller adult size most likely have spread through the population. Can anyone ans this Q abve and also give the solution?

Correct anwer is B: The first bold face is a premise ( you can it evidence/fact) supporting the second ; The second is the main conclusion, but not the only one. In this argument, the author presents his another opinion ( conclusion ) i.e: The casue is probably......bla bla

Let me know the official answer also, although I am 90% confident.

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
I’m not sitting for gmat but the exam that I’ll be attending has a section of critical reasoning data sufficiency and sentence correction

I’m practising these from gmat

But I don’t seem to do any better

any suggestions on how to be good at these?

So that i can at least ensure 70%?

The ans is C. The solution is mentioning "The cause is probably regulations prohibiting hunting of smaller animals" as the main conclusion. I am also confused that how a causal sentence can become the main conclusion

Hi Team,
Do we know the approximate split of number of questions between critical reasoning and reading comprehension. Need a rough estimate for creating forum quiz.

In the verbal section of GMAT Prep Focus practice exams, I consistently encountered 4 Reading Comprehension (RC) passages, each accompanied by either 3 or 4 questions. The distribution between Reading Comprehension and Critical Reasoning questions was:

  • Either 13 RC and 10 CR questions, or 14 RC and 9 CR questions.


This meant I either faced 3 RC passages with 3 questions each and 1 RC passage with 4 questions, OR 2 RC passages with 3 questions each and 2 RC passages with 4 questions.
