Can any point out that d is a better answer than a?

The senator's attempt to convince the public that he is
not interested in running for a second term is_________
given the extremely_________ fund-raising activities of
his campaign committee.

a. futile..clandestine
b. sincere..visible
c. spacious..apathetic
d. disingenuous..public
e. straightforward..dubious

this one is not for gmat..

anyways, the statement tries to say that it is not worthy on senator's part to declare that he is not running for the next term, when he had a flamboyant/public fund raising campaign.

futile (worthless) is not what is senator's attempt, it is insincere (disingenuous). And, his fund raising campaign was public...not a secret (clandestine). ...!!!

Yes. It is not not GMAT, and it is GRE, which is also administered by ETS.

Currently, I would be taking both GMAT [in Feb 2004], and GRE [in Dec 2003] at the same time, as I am not sure if I can get into a MBA school, or any Master program. So, I am sending in applications to two different Master programs at the same time, and I need both scores.

I feel some of the styles, format, words between the two tests are quite related e.g. the comprehesion, which I find them ore literary for GRE as compared to the ones from GMAT. I would appreciate if MBA hopefuls can assist me in my questions here.

If anyone is strongly against GRE here, I would not post any GRE questions here then.

Thank you very much.

I am pretty sure that a one point focus will help you getting a good score. And that's the real key.

I guess, it won't be appropriate to post typical gre stuff. This will only distract people. Nevertheless, If you have some genuine doubt about some GRE stuff, you can post.. that's what, I believe.

But, consensus is what matters.

good luck!
