Nice passage, however long one... took long time to absorb and even for answering questions ...

Question 5 is in the format of gmat questions but OA is little odd...

With the strong wording as 'Based on the information in the passage' one can feel difficulty to think for a hypothetical situation in which ans is not at all mentioned in the entire passage.

I felt its ok to mark question 5 wrong as it shows that one adheres to the rules of RC concept of out of scope answers.

It would be better if we know the source of this question to confirm that weather we need to update our understanding of question 5 like.

Got 3 wrong in haste. Not a very difficult passage to understand but the questions seemed quite tricky with multiple options to ponder upon.

got them all correct, pretty straightforward passage and question sets

a lot of people answered (B), which is incorrect for question 3
The social agreement mentioned throughout the passage focused on how individuals right have limitations
some national services are necessary in order for the society to function properly. (national defense ... etc)
Therefore you should have picked (A)

Answer (B) is the ideal society for classic liberals but the passage is not describing that

3. Which one of the following most accurately characterizes what the author means by the term “social agreement” (line 8)?
(A) an agreement among members of a community that the scope of their individual liberties is limited somewhat by their obligations to one another
(B) an agreement among members of a community that they will not act in ways that infringe upon each other’s pursuit of individual liberty

Please post the explanation for q1 q3 q4 and q5.
It would be really helpful if someone could post the answer to 4 questions.

i dont understand question 4. i think the author says that primarily taxation and national service are analogous because both are shared responsibility of the citizens and can be seen as sacrifice, secondly they are similar because thry serve ends beyond those related to the basic survival of the state.
so the answer should be c.
