question 2 is discussed earlier.

question 6 attempt to is the preferred idiom only E has this.

Question 9 is testing idiom believe to be is the preferred format so E is correct.

Question 10 is testing consistency. Keyword "AND"
sentence structure is something like this

However much United States voters may agree
1) that there is waste in government
2) that the government as a whole spends beyond its means, it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal state.

option C doesn't have consistency.

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
(C) they believe that it is of--same issue as B
(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
as a whole spends beyond its means, it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal
state.

MAY agree= probability VS agree/agreement= certainty , so B ,C, E-Change the meaning of the sentence
(A) However much United States voters may agree that
(B) Despite the agreement among United States voters to the fact
(C) Although United States voters agree
(D) Even though United States voters may agree there is waste in government and that the government
as a whole spends beyond its means, it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal
state.---may agree THAT , 'that' is missing we need a relative clause after agree and the absence of THAT spoils the parallelism with (and that the government as a whole..............)
(E) There is agreement among United States voters that

so A it is

Thank You so much,,,,,It was very helpful,,,,looking forward to the next list of the sentences..

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
There two clauses are present and they talk about the same thing ....hence Parallelism is the issue...To make clauses parallel we need to use similar structure i.e that.....and that
optione uses the same but intent is alterdd we need to present a contrast.....Hence A is the correct answer

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

18. Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson. Pauline Pfeiffer. Martha Gelhom. and Mary Welsh --were
strong and interesting women
, very different from the often pallid women who populate his novels.

Each as a subject will need a singular verb so each --were/women--all S-V mismatches

(A) Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--were strong and interesting women,S-V ERROR
(B) Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhorn, and Mary Welsh--each of them Hemingway's
wives--were strong and, interesting women,S-V Agreement error
(C) Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary Welsh--were all
strong and interesting women,--correct sent structure and S-V match
(D) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--each a wife of Hemingway, was women--was S-V error
(E) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--every one of Hemingway's wives were.noun --pronoun mismatch ie pronoun everyone (singular) is used for women (plural). and everyone of Hemingway's wives were--is non-nonsensical

19. In addition to having more protein -than wheat does, the protein in rice is higher quality than that in wheat,
with more of the amino acids essential to the human diet.

In addition to having more protein -than wheat does..who has that excess protein? you need the item being compared to wheat (ie rice) at the beginning of the sentence

(A) the protein in rice is higher quality than that in
(B) rice has protein of higher quality than that in--right comparsion b/w protein found in wheat and thar in rice
(C) the protein in rice is higher in quality than it is in
(D) rice protein is higher in quality than it is in
(E) rice has a protein higher in quality than wheat--illogical comparison (protein compared to wheat)

18. Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson. Pauline Pfeiffer. Martha Gelhom. and Mary Welsh --were

, very different from the often pallid women who populate his novels.

Each as a subject will need a singular verb so each --were/women--all S-V mismatches

(A) Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--were strong and interesting women,S-V ERROR
(B) Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhorn, and Mary Welsh--each of them Hemingway's
wives--were strong and, interesting women,S-V Agreement error
(C) Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary Welsh--were all
strong and interesting women,--correct sent structure and S-V match
(D) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--each a wife of Hemingway, was women--was S-V error
(E) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--every one of Hemingway's wives were.noun --pronoun mismatch ie pronoun everyone (singular) is used for women (plural). and everyone of Hemingway's wives were--is non-nonsensical

hey
you are wrong in your exlanation of Q 18 option B
There is no S- V ambiguity its absolutely fine to mention A,B and C each were....
but its wrong to mention Each A,B and C were....It should be singular...Thats a take away from here..Moreover Here the mistake is with placement of Modifier "Strong and intersted should modify the character as it is modifying the noun present here hence it must be placed close to the noun" In GMAt placement of modifier for noun is very important......it should be close to the noun.....But same is not the case with Verb..You may refer the OA if possible or i will post ..Nowhere it is mentioned about S-V error in Option B....
Hope that helps

All answers except Q14 are correct good job
Its time to explain a few good ones...You can explain 17,18, and 19

Thanks for a quick reply. IS 14 Q--D (estimated to be). I was confused between estimated to be vs estimated as (in spite of doing this question before ..somewhere.. will explain these

I could guess ur mistake
Take Away

Estimated to be is correct idiom.. IMO Estimated as unidiomatic ..Estimated at is correct only if the author talks about the place where the estimation was done....

Hope that helps!!

difference b/w estimated at and estimated to be

Estimated at is used when we want to modify Nouns , bcoz 'at' is a preposition and should be followed by a noun
eg- The age of the sculpture is estimated at 300 years (noun)

Estimated to be can be used for other constructions
eg--the sculpture is estimated to be 300 yrs old
