Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of mastering the CR questions as this is my weak area.

Has anyone tried pattern recognition in CR argument, I was able to identify patters in trap answers, incorrect answer choices, etc.

But couldn't find patterns in arguments structures.

For example

Below argument can be categorised as:

Some problem, reason for the problem, (C) fixing the problem.

Personnel officer: The exorbitant cost of our health-insurance benefits reflects the high dollar amount of medical expenses incurred by our employees. Employees who are out of shape, as a group, have higher doctor bills and longer hospital stays than do their colleagues who are fit. Therefore, since we must reduce our health-insurance costs, we should offer a rigorous fitness program of jogging and weight lifting to all employees, and require employees who are out of shape to participate.
