Thanks for the share ! Can you explain me the Question no 2 ? I only got that one incorrect. Couldn't understand option E .

From below lines, we can infer that the author was unable to assess the truth of opaque-2 maize being more susceptible to insects than are other varieties of maize.

Quote:
For example, the better protein quality in tortillas made from opaque-2 maize will be of only limited benefit to a family on the margin of subsistence if the new maize is not culturally acceptable or is more vulnerable to insects.

Can someone please help me with Q1. Why is 3 a better choice? What does qualify mean and what's the difference between a generalization and position?

For example, the better protein quality in tortillas made from opaque-2 maize will be of only limited benefit to a family on the margin of subsistence if the new maize is not culturally acceptable or is more vulnerable to insects.

There are 3 author's statements about opaque-2 maize:
1) better protein quality
2) it can be culturally not acceptable
3) it can be vulnerable to insects

2. It can be inferred from the passage that the author was unable to assess the truth of which of the following statements about opaque-2 maize?

(A) It is a more recent innovation than the use of fish-protein concentrate.
we can add A statement to 3 authors statements and we will have 4 noncontradictory statements
(B) It can be stored as easily as other varieties of maize.
same as A
(C) It is more popular than the wheat-rye hybrid triticale.
maybe C contradict to "socially not acceptable" HOLD. But if we will think more, no one tells us that wheat-rye hybrid triticale is socially acceptable
(D) It produces tortillas of greater protein content than do other varieties of maize.
same as A
(E) It is more susceptible to insects than are other varieties of maize.
Here we need to translate "more susceptible to insects" as "more vulnerable", so if the author will assess that opaque-2 is more vulnerable then he should not say "it can be more vulnerable" because it is more vulnerable. CORRECT

The problem with Option E in Q1 is "qualifying". Qualifying basically means proving (I think). To qualify the position, the author uses the entire passage, not just the 1st paragraph. Thus, E is not right. C is right. Generalization (you can also consider it a position) is that adopting new tech is not easy. It's advanced because the 1st paragraph goes further to explain what makes the adoption hard. Also several evidences are given to support, but not completely prove, the point.

Hey zac123 I think you should acknowledge the fact that the hit rate matters so initially it may take time , however you can do one thing, while reading if you can simultaneously convert the text in your native language in your mind and a frame a series of sequence, it can help!

workout - Is it old OG question ? Seems like one, but TAG is not updated to OG - 1988 or so

15 mins 49 secs. Got 1 wrong. Silly mistake for the wrong question and I feel I was too slow. Need to pick more pace.

Hi workout

Thanks for your detailed analysis. Regarding Q2, I have already understood why E is correct, but I couldn't find information from the passage for B, C, and D. Per my understanding from the question, the correct answer should be the one that the author is cannot prove to be true and the incorrect answers should be the ones the author can prove from the passage. Could you elaborate on this? Many thanks.
