Last year, a proactive initiative by the state government to publish the answer sheets, backfired when students discovered discrepancies in the way the questions had been marked. They found that in one paper, a student who hadn't attempted all the questions, still got cent per cent score and in a few others the tally of marks didn't add up. Following this embarrassment, the state government decided against publishing a similar booklet this year. Some students and teachers are of the view that the booklet should be published.

Which of the following is the best reason for publishing the booklet?

(A) Students of the succeeding batches can learn how top scorers attempt
(B) Students of the succeeding batches can learn how the question papers are evaluated
(C) Students of the succeeding batches can observe the way in which the answers are presented.
(D) Students of the succeeding batches can get motivated to take more interest in the way they attempt the question paper
(E) It can act as a sample question-answer bank for students.

Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

My friend, this question is beyond bad--it's an utter embarrassment. To anyone who is a native English speaker, it's perfectly clear that this prompt was not written by someone who had any command of the English language. I have absolutely no idea what the writer means when he says, "a student . . . still got cent per cent score." This question in no way will prepare one for the official CR questions, all of which are flawlessly written in eminently well-spoken language.

Here's a high quality GMAT CR practice question:
Violent felonies in Dismaston

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

thank you, I learn from you the ability to distinguish a good gmat question from a bad one. Since I am an international student, all questions look good to me. Thanks to you, I can know which question is good for preparation.
