farm-management companies have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area that is about
(A) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area that is about Colorado's size
(B) have grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, about the size of Colorado
(C) has grown from 48 million to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado
(D) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, an area about the size of Colorado's
(E) has grown from 48 million up to nearly 59 million, about Colorado's size--Idiom is from X to Y , Not 'up to' Y . Without using the appositive modifier 'an area' the modifier about Colorado's size is left dangling. Stylistically size of Colorado is preferred to Colorado's size

All your answers are correct and yes the option given in Q7 is correct and is not mentioned in the source which i have i checked a previous post on the same question that also does not has "is"....i think is should be mentioned or else we will have a Sub Verb must exit error "the greater their intellectual advantage in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic" is a dependent clause and it does not has a verb.. Correct me if i am wrong but yes OG questions cannot have an issue they are undoubtedly the proven answer.

Yes, OG answers can't be wrong but I did check on the other forums as well. The word 'is' seems to be missing. But i guess its the only option to use 'the more the --er' idiom correctly . so we will have to go with C for Q7.

If you pick even 60% right on quant but in verbal you are strong, really, you can reach easely 720 730 it depends.

RC also is the most underrated part but in the end is the part that affects your verbal part.

9. Astronomers at the Palomar Observatory have discovered a distant supernova explosion, one that they
believe is a type previously unknown to science.
(A) that they believe is--when you have 'one' referring back to explosion you don't need that (hence wrong due to redundancy issue )
(B) that they believe it to be---that and it again redundancy issue

(D) they believe that is--Same issue as A
(E) they believe to be of----correct idiom no redundancy so it E

10. However much United States voters may agree that there is waste in government and that the government

(A) However much United States voters may agree that

(D) Even though United States voters may agree there is waste in government and that the government

Indeed, is difficult to say because is a CAT, because you earn more point for a difficult question instead to an easy one and so on....but generally speaking for the overall verbal section no more than of 4 - 5 questions at most and for sure NOT in the first 10 15 question from the beginning

wow, that's quite tough,are you able to manage 35-36/ 41 Q on verbal?? I remember that one of the GMAT instructors said that you can get over the 700 hump by just getting 65% question right,although things at the very highest [750+] and lowest levels will defer

you answered the question by your self. is different at upper level from medium low level. moreover I agree with 65% but this have to be contextualize because the exam is a CAT not standard test, though is a standardized test, that is different.

I mean: sure you could pick even 10 questions wrog but you should be already in the 700 area because they hurt your score less than 10 questions wrong at medium low level.

yes the number of question you can get wrong will be related to the difficulty level of the question ie how are you scoring so far,and which questions u get wrong, the initial questions and those at the fag end will hurt your score more. Moreover successive incorrect answers are more heavily penalized.

I would like to the query in Q 10

optione uses the same but intent is alterdd we need to present a contrast.....Hence A is the correct answer

KUDOS
Native American burial sites dating back 5,000 years indicate that the residents of Maine at that time were
part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people.

(A) were part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people
(B) had been part of a widespread culture of people who were Algonquian-speaking=TENSE Error- We need past perfect tense only to show the time gap between two past events (if once occurs before the other) , this sentence does not need that since 2 events are not being described or compared
(C) were people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking--you don't need both the words residents and people as both signify the same group/persons and culture cannot be Algonquian speaking but the people are
(D) had been people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking. same TENSE Error as B and culture cannot be Algonquian speaking but the people are
(E) were a people which had been part of a widespread, Algonquian-speaking culture--this will read as -- 'residents of Maine at that time were a people'-- , you don't need both the words residents and people. moreover TENSE error 'had been part of' indicates that the people/residents had belonged to the Algonquian-speaking culture sometime in the past

So A
