All,

I am sure many of us want to improve Verbal score and GMAT club has numerous materials...

Can we work together and post some good, basic and fundamental questions that test takers normally ignore or miss...concept is to share such questions that everyone benefits...Whoever comes across such questions or learns from them, please share with all of us and spread your findings.

Rules
1) Post link for the question which tricked you, link of he question to be provided -- You may also put in spoiler suggesting what tricked you..
2) Do not discuss anything on this forum, please keep this as a placeholder only
3) Please give kudos to the question posted here, maximum kudos will determine how valuable the question is (worth your time) for test taking community. Also a chance to earn Kudos.
4) No need to post question for the sake of posting
5) A separate thread for Quant needs similar help from all of you ..

Thanks

In America, children who are given secondhand clothing tend to come from households with more children. This makes sense, but what is unusual is that children who wear secondhand clothing also tend to be injured accidentally more often than children who do not wear secondhand clothing.

Which of the following statements best explains the conclusion drawn above?

(A) Children who wear secondhand clothing tend to have parents who are more concerned about their safety and well-being.
(B) Children who wear clothing that doesn't fit well are more likely to get their sleeves and cuffs caught on playground equipment and have accidents.
(C) Younger children who come from larger families tend to get injured accidentally at high rates because they tend to engage in rough play with their older siblings.
(D) The youngest child, who gets the most secondhand clothing, is also the most likely to have an accidental injury.
(E) Secondhand clothing is nearly indistinguishable from clothing bought new.

Please do not discuss the question here, Follow the link below...This is a nice question that tricked me

Could not focus that Option B talks about ill fitting clothes not second hand ones

A restaurant that comes up with an innovative dish can normally increase its profits by capitalizing on the novelty of the dish. Since recipes can be easily replicated, the restaurant with a new dish advertises it aggressively to attract customers while the novelty factor can still be used as a selling point. But aggressive advertising generates a fear of losing customers in the competitors and gives them a strong incentive to quickly replicate the new dish. Therefore, the strategy to maximize overall profit from a new dish is to advertise it selectively.

Which of the following, if true, strengthens the suggestion given by the author?

A) The patrons of a restaurant are the ones who are most likely to try a new dish at the restaurant.
B) The word of mouth publicity generated by the customers of the restaurant is a good enough reason for the competitors to replicate the dish.
C) The recipes for the innovative dishes are usually kept under close guard by the restaurants that develop the dishes.
D) Aggressive marketing usually generates far more profits than does selective marketing.
E) Selective marketing has been proven to be an effective strategy for fast food restaurant chains.

Could not focus that Option E limits discussion to fast food and talks about talks about effective strategy that has not been discussed in passage
