Its e

E is among the top of rejected choices because it goes against the premise. Author has already said that new radio sales were the highest, but E says sales of older version was even higher! So you cannot challenge the premise. Hence E is an easy sure shot rejection. However, D is the answer because it tells why even after old radio had lower sales, it was able generate more profit ( because of lower cost)

Well, j didn’t see anywhere author has seen new ones are highest ( explicitly) ,Author said that the profit on old ones was high than new ones so we can easily deduce that sales was definitely higher for old ones. So no way its a clear rejection.

I would really strongly urge you all to stick to the official mocks. If you want to practice resilience then you can give Manhattan Prep mock and TTP mock, maybe even EGMAT but don’t stray outside of these three.

Food resources that could support such a diet were most abundant and reliable in the shore environments that were available to early humans. Nevertheless, the human brain’s evolution took place almost exclusively in savanna and woodland areas. Which one of the following, if true, would most help to resolve the apparent conflict presented above? (A) Early humans had a significantly lower metabolic rate than anatomically modern humans, allowing them to expend their fat reserves more efficiently.

Q1. In order to protect its domestic sugar cane growers, the government of Country X decided to impose a steep tax on all imported cane juice, which is used a sweetener. As a direct result of this tax, the price of cane juice in Country X rose sharply. After the tax was imposed, all the country’s soft drink companies, which had before used cane juice as a sweetener in their drinks, switched to another sweetener, high fructose corn syrup, in order to maintain their cost structures.

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the passage above?


A. The amount of cane juice required to sweeten one soft drink cost approximately the same as the amount of high fructose corn syrup required to sweeten one soft drink prior to the imposition of the cane juice import tax.

B. Soft drink companies in Country X hoped to sell their products in the same countries that were traditionally known to export cane juice to Country X.

C. The number of sugar cane growers in Country X increased after the imposition of the import tax on cane juice in Country X.

D. Soft drink companies in Country X had considered a switch from cane juice to high fructose corn syrup prior to the decision by the government of Country X to impose the tax on all imported cane juice.

E. The amount of cane juice imported by Country X exceeded the amount produced domestically prior to the imposition of import taxes by the government of Country X.

Answers

A Possible because the cost comparison ties into 2 things : maintenance of cost structure and post import price spike nexessitaing switch
B not rooted in given para
C the para doesn’t talk about no of growers
D again not relevant as as it relates to pre tax period
E Would like to avoid as amount of cane juice isn’t necessarily addressed in para but a good alternate to A

Between A and E - A bcs it has more points of synchronicity with para

Answer

A- Weakens as it introduces the idea that no if newspapers doesn’t necessarily relate to interest but greater population
B Weakens as it point out that all newspaper in A don’t go to all citizens in S
C Weakens as less time implies less information absorbed
D weakens - as the conclusion is about world events and this means the paper has less world event data
E Neither weaken nor strengthen as price isn’t relevant to news awareness

Hi but don’t you think that option E weakens the conclusion that town S is more aware than town T cuz if the price of Newspapers is less people are more likely to buy them and conversely town T people are more likely to share the papers from each other rather than buying.

E is not saying anything about sharing or about awareness of price
It just says about the avg prices

The start of the para already gives that one place has more newspaper than another so the dynamics of price and demand aren’t relevant as we already have final qty
Hope this makes sense

Vastly enriched by long years of professional experience, employees over 50 contribute as much as do their younger counterparts to an organization’s success, yet Difficulty - Hard

A - This option is correct because structure is IC, but (FANBOY) IC. Modifier vastly enriched is correctly placed near noun Employees over 50. Subject verb agreement Employees - contribute.
B - Modifier incorrectly placed next to noun organization instead of employees. Incorrect.
C - 2nd IC missing. Yet being so maligned is a Dependent Clause. Incorrect structure.
D - Meaning error - As their younger counterparts, employees - could me employees over 50 are younger counterparts of youth.
E - 2nd IC missing. Yet so maligned is a Dependent clause. Incorrect structure.

Therefore, option A is the correct answer.

D) is critical to the maintenance of democratic institutions in the United States. E) might be achieved through multiple rounds of elections.

In Para 1, through the use of 30 election results, the author says that the current process is not making the most popular candidate President. Then he goes on to say this "Proposed alternatives include multiple rounds of elections, “approval voting,” and “rank voting.” Notice the use of "and". We cannot surely conclude which alternative is better of the two unless the author has given opinion in the subsequent paragraphs. But on reading the last para we can see that he doesn’t claim one to be better than the other. So, what we can surely infer is that to get the popular candidate we would need multiple rounds of elections in either of the system. Therefore, option E is the correct answer.

D - not concise, best structure - to signal how no one can get away with committing ...
get away with should be followed by a noun - here it is present participial phrase.

Therefore, option E is the answer.

The amount of cane juice required to sweeten one soft drink cost approximately the same as the amount of high fructose corn syrup required to sweeten one soft drink prior to the imposition of the cane juice import tax. B. Soft drink companies in Country X hoped to sell their products in the same countries that were traditionally known to export cane juice to Country X. C. The number of sugar cane growers in Country X increased after the imposition of the import tax on cane juice in Country X. D. Soft drink companies in Country X had considered a switch from cane juice to high fructose corn syrup prior to the decision by the government of Country X to impose the tax on all imported cane juice.

A growing number of developed and developing countries are calling for urgent changes to the World Bank and other publicly funded finance institutions, which they say have failed to provide the funding needed to help poor countries cut their greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of the climate crisis. Is this Sentence Grammatically correct?

Better we use another comma pairs after "which" and they say (after finance institutions) because it kinda feels run on. Not a deterministic error but still a better structure I feel.

A - required that + base form (interview) - correct answer B - them - no reference C - requires - missing ’that’ for command subjunctive form D - comparison structure incorrect separately E - required that + base form not used (interview) - incorrect

Option C is wrong because of forced parallelism not because of subjunctive error. As per my understanding from EGMAT, the verbs such as Require, Request, Ask, Beg, Desire, Intend etc can have both "To verb" and "subjunctive" forms
