Hello everyone!
I dont have a doubt about this question, I have a doubt about strategy.
I encountered this question while solving the GMATClub CATs in the first quarter of my questions (I guess it was 5th or 6th question). I couldnt find a breakthrough for about 1 min 45 secs (guess) and then I could think of a correct approach.
Now, I had spent a total of 2 mins 30 secs or more (again a guess) and still I was not able to decide on the final answer.
Frustrated, I decided to randomly mark because I thought that I had spent too much time on this and still wasnt able to find a concrete answer (in my mind, i knew that had I spent another minute or so, I could have figured it out but I decided against it because I was compromising the time for the remaining questions)
So, now that I have narrated the entire situation, my question is
In case of a tough question for which you have spent more than the required amount of time should you dedicate some more time given you think that you are on the right path, it would just take more time to arrive at the final answer OR mark a random answer choice and move ahead to have enough time for the remaining questions?
TIA!
