Main point of a passage is all about the summary of all paragraphs from the author's point of view. What author is trying to convey. So right approach to solve these type of questions is to have paragraphs' summaries and read them from author's point of view and then come to a conclusion.

In above post dabaobao has demonstrated it correctly. For improving on these questions you should improve your reading and make it more active. keep it on author's point is the best approach. think of it this way, why author wrote this passage/line. it could have been written in many ways, why this one ?

Hi hazelnut

I had solved this passage through the gmat online book/software(in exam mode). Most of the answers i selected were the ones explained here. But when i checked the answers of the OG software, they were all incorrect. Is it possible that the OG software shows incorrect answers and incorrect explanations? I have the screenshots for reference to share but not sure how to share in this thread. Kindly help.

A. a mistake in judgment regarding the selection of a wholesaler
B. a breakdown in the factory's machinery
C. a labor dispute on the factory floor
D. an increase in the cost per unit of output

Can anyone please explain why the ans is D. TIA
