CR1: A
CR2: B(not sure what the conclusion is. C also seems plausible, but not sure whether ’’strong conviction = no compromise’’, hence would go with B)

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
When the government announced a student loan program for undergraduates, it received an enthusiastic response from the both the student and their parent communities. The government claimed that a student loan would allow best choice of college without worrying about exorbitant fee and the student, upon landing a job or after a grace period of 1 year whichever is earlier, may start paying back. The opposition, however, is skeptical that the program will be beneficial for the career of a student, even when he is now better placed to choose a college of his liking and thus has better prospects of landing a job.

Which of the following, if true, best supports the contention of the opposition?

A. Easy availability of loans in undergraduate programs has unnecessarily caused even well-off students to avail loans.
B. Students tend to rush into the very first job they happen to get to pay off their debt.
C. Students erroneously assume that the economic situation when they subscribed to a loan would be the same when they enter the job market.
D. Students, once indebted and in a job, are least motivated to up skill in a job market that remains as competitive as ever.
E. Majority of students who took loans started their families late as they focused on helming higher roles and responsibilities.

Can someone help me with the above?

Here’s my view
The opposition is saying that the program won’t be beneficial for the "career of a student".
In choice B, even if the student at first doesn’t get the best job, he might still get a better job after a while.
But if choice D is true then not being able to learn any new skills in a competitive market might be harmful for the student’s career.

I have a quick question. How accurate is ChatGPT’s explanation for GMAT CR?

I tried seeking an explanation for choosing Option D over Option B for this CR as I felt Option B should be the answer and ChatGPT also favored Option B over Option D.

There is a difference if these are difficult questions or easy. If you only miss difficult and we are talking only about verbal then 23, 22, 21 would likely be the answer. But with adaptive tests the score and mistakes have a non-linear correlation.
