Hi All,

Once in a while, when practicing SC, I used to come across some questions not present on this forum. So am going to dedicate this thread to those though 700-800 level questions. We see if can post them topic wise.

So these are not necessarily new questions, but those that we haven't come across on this forum.

outlook for the upcoming quarter.
• have risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their
• have risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the
• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the
• has risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their

I really don't think any of these are 700-800 level. May be 500-600 level most likely. What is the source?

• have risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their S-V aggrement ( The price of X and Y is singular and thus demands has and not have)
• have risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the Same as A
• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about the Correct
• has risen and will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their has risen is redundant here as the same message is conveyed in "will continue to rise", which means the price has risen for some time and the trend will continue. moreover, the company management is singular and thus singular pronoun its and not their is required
• will continue to rise, the company management was pessimistic about their
the company management is singular and thus singular pronoun its and not their is required

I am not sure of the actual source. But the compilation I have is from a GMAT coaching club. While compilation it self has lot of questions, most of them are present on the forum as well. So have not posted them. So probably the ones already present on the forum might be the tough ones in my collection, while these could be on the lower end of difficulty.

Anyways, I will continue to post the rest as i come across them.

At least this will give us more practice questions not present on the forum.
