I'm curious. Is there any distinction between "like" and "just like"?

Thanks :grin: :grin:

Hi septwibowo ,

As far as I know, Just like is almost always incorrect on GMAT.

(A) Like

(B) As with

(C) Just like

(D) As

(E) Just as


The answer is A.
Since in this sentence the author is comparing a similarity between Gandhi, Kennedy, and Lincoln, and Churchill, we use Like.

Absolutely true, " Just Like " is always incorrect on GMAT


Here is a beautiful post from GMATNinja

https://gmatclub.com/forum/just-like-65 ... l#p1827766

Nothing wrong with the original sentence , correct answer must be (A)

Just like is slightly wordier than like. That's it. Nothing else wrong with it.
