First of all let me thank you all for participating in this competition.

We have announced the winners officially. I would love to say that there is NO LOSER here at all, any person who stepped in for the knowledge is the WINNER. So all those participated are winners. I understand that the motive behind participating in the event was not just to win prize but sharpen your RC skills and to get experience of solving RC. I hope this event will help you in your RC preparation. Lately I have noticed that some participant, being aware they might not be in the top 5 at the end of competition, have left early. I think I have missed one trick here by updating the points table daily, I might change this routine next year’s edition and will show the participant's standings on the last day of the event. Let me know what you suggest me on this stance.

Let me appreciate Vie3nrose Tahamohsin Deepakjhamb Sumi1010 and Neha2404 the consistency with which you guys went throughout the competition, I hope it has helped you making your stamina for this dry section of the GMAT. Below is the summary of the Prizes. Please feel free to PM me when you want to get the GC tests access.

I have one request to all of you, Please go to the main thread and remove all of your wrong answer's explanations and also format your explanations properly. A lot of members will visit these questions and read your explanations later on, to avoid any confusion I think it is good to remove the wrong ones. You can take your time and can do this in the next few days. You have put in a lot of time writing these explanations so they deserve respect (In form of Kudos) and the members will definitely gave kudos when they read the right explanation.

I have updated the sources from which I have taken all these questions, I have also updated the topics names according to our SOPs. All OEs are also duly updated. If someone finds any discrepancy please don’t hesitate to PM me and report.

What should we do next?

For your information: Onward from today both the RC and IR butler will be continued and you all are warmly welcome to post your explanations/thoughts or any query. New questions will be posted 5 times/week and OAs will be hidden for 2 days, so anyone can solve those questions, post an explanation and earn Kudos!

I have also prepared a post-event survey form, I will really appreciate if you spend your 2 minutes to answer a few questions, below is the link to the survey form.

https://forms.gle/Ed7dCUGWsRV6mReFA

If anyone has anything to share his/her thoughts, provide feedback or suggest for the improvement is warmly welcome. You can reply here or you can PM me.

Best of Luck

You can participate in the competition on any date on or before 15th Jan, But the winner will be one who top the table at the end. So keep in mind to win a prize you might need to put extra efforts and not miss any other day.

Good Luck

Haha Sajjad1994. Yes, you are right this competition has become a bit boring..
Well, I think You have given me a little less point in the previous RC.
It is true that I have not given a very good explanation, but all my answers were correct, and other guys have gotten way more points than me.
Although don't take this as an argument, I am just having fun.

Good Catch! You are right I was a bit strict with you because I was expecting better explanation from you than you have posted. In passage #1, question #1, you were not clear in your logic, probably you don't know why you picked option C (The correct answer) or might you were unable to explain that well. One more thing i would like to share is that If someone got all four questions correct but explained only one or two well, another aspirant got three correct out of four but explained the three correct questions well. In this case I will give the later one more points. Hope you understand the rationale. Thank you for your participation.

Good Luck!

RC Butler Competition 2021 Leader's Board

I have had organized this competition in the previous year too, Unlike that of the previous year this year the participants are really silent workers, they come, read the questions, post the explanations and go. Nobody comment on their performance after the release of OAs. Why so professionalism? . You are free to share your views and comments on your explanations, official explanation and/or other's explanations. If you have any suggestion you 're welcome to share that too.

Good Luck

I have one thing to say, idk how these people(Tahamohsin and few others)are so brilliant getting each and every question right everyday! Hands down! and I strongly urge you to make total prizes to 10 and not 5

I have one thing in my mind, these people might not taking care of the time consideration one required to consider in the real test, I think If you have 24 hours to answer 2 RCs you should get 100% result as you can read the question multiple times, can go back to the text more than once and hence understand the demand of the question.

PS: What if I extend the number of prizes from 5 to 7?

Oh yeah! there's no time limit and we can get back always through out the day. I'll try to do that for the last day
I'll try to be at 7th at least , if it's the case

Sajjad1994 I am good sir, hope your family and you are safe during these uncertain times.

For everyone else, the competition ends here but we encourage you to keep coming back and help your fellow GMAters. RC forums is not as popular as the SC or Quant forums in GMAtclub - partly because it takes much more time to write a good answer! But that is all the more reason for more participation - more the merrier!!

I encourage you all to keep coming back to this wonderful forum.

OMG that was a nailbiter 🙉
Thank you for organizing (and to all the competitors) for such a fun/intense competition! I was lazy on the first day and only posted for one RC, and then had to hustle hard for the next two weeks because no one else slacked for even a single day 🙇🏻‍♀️

I'm completely exhausted and have developed a deep appreciation for all the verbal debriefs on the forum - it takes forever!

Congratulations Vie3nrose Deepakjhamb Tahamohsin and Neha2404 !!

Thanks Sajjad1994 for your untiring effort on conducting RC and IR Butler competitions.
I'd unhesitantly admit that I don't feel very comfortable in comprehending the intricate passages,particularly when timer is on.
Of the three sections of verbal, RC has been a matter of pain to me often.
IMO getting right answers is sheer luck until one has a concrete and logical explanation. Sometimes even official explanations shirk this responsibility and take the detour to correct answer. The competitions like this one are quite helpful .We read other's explanations not to pick the right answer,but to tune the thought process in an indigenous way.Thanks!
