Please explain the answer,

I have read the explanation and still find it hard to accept the presented answer choice.

Thanks in advance.



Pls elaborate :oops: :(


Sure do not worry :)

If you read super carefully the stimulus what is said in A B D and E simply you cannot DEDUCE what they say.

In must true question or conclusion or infer question, the right answer choice is a restatement of a sentence of the stimulus.

As mba1382 pointed out is just this. :)

Imagine the history of the world.
During the Roman Empire you have prosperity, lavishness, architecture, art. You have lots of its.
Then come the Christians, **** everything up, nothing happens for 1000 words. You have nothing
Then comes the Renaissance, when you once again have literature, architecture, kind of Humans rights..

So, to apply it in this case, since it is stated you have a "renaissance" of transnational business, it means you had plenty of it at some point, none of ot later, and now you notice a new "awakening" of that business". So, at some point, you had more of it and at some point you had less of it, Hence C :)

Only option is telling that the transnational project is earlier more common and less common means the phenomenon was there earlier and now seeing its revival again other options can not be inferred. Hence C.

Transnational cooperation among corporations is experiencing a modest renaissance among United States firms, even though projects undertaken by two or more corporations under a collaborative agreement are less profitable than projects undertaken by a single corporation. The advantage of transnational cooperation is that such joint international projects may allow United States firms to win foreign contracts that they would not otherwise be able to win.

Type - Inference
- Transnational cooperation is experiencing a rebirth even thought they are less profitable
- May allow US firms to win foreign contracts that they would not have otherwise won.

Which of the following is information provided by the passage?

(A) Transnational cooperation involves projects too big for a single corporation to handle. Out of scope
(B) Transnational cooperation results in a pooling of resources leading to high-quality performance. There is no mention about high quality performance
(C) Transnational cooperation has in the past been both more common and less common than it is now among United States firms. Correct - experiencing a modest renaissance
(D) Joint projects between United States and foreign corporations are not profitable enough to be worth undertaking. Incorrect - this goes a little too far . Such projects may not be as profitable as when undertaken by a single cooperation .
(E) Joint projects between United States and foreign corporations benefit only those who commission the projects. Out of scope

Answer C

How could a thing be "both more common and less common" at the same time?

Either more common or less common doesn't sound better?

I got confused here with that.


Thank you in advance.

Transnational cooperation among corporations is experiencing a modest renaissance among United States firms, even though projects undertaken by two or more corporations under a collaborative agreement are less profitable than projects undertaken by a single corporation. The advantage of transnational cooperation is that such joint international projects may allow United States firms to win foreign contracts that they would not otherwise be able to win.

Which of the following is information provided by the passage?

(A) Transnational cooperation involves projects too big for a single corporation to handle.
(B) Transnational cooperation results in a pooling of resources leading to high-quality performance.
(C) Transnational cooperation has in the past been both more common and less common than it is now among United States firms.
(D) Joint projects between United States and foreign corporations are not profitable enough to be worth undertaking.
(E) Joint projects between United States and foreign corporations benefit only those who commission the projects.

A "renaissance", in this context, is a "revival" or "rebirth", and here "modest" means "limited in size, amount, or scope." For example, if I said that soccer is experiencing a modest renaissance in the United States, it would mean that soccer is becoming somewhat more popular and/or successful. It would not mean that soccer has suddenly exploded and become as popular as American football.

Similarly, in this passage, transnational cooperation among corporations is experiencing a "limited revival" among US firms, even though such cooperation usually results in lower profits. The advantage of the cooperation is that it will help US firms win more foreign contracts in the future (contracts that those firms would not have won if they had not cooperated on joint international projects). In other words, cooperating on a project might not be as profitable as doing it on your own, but it will help you win more foreign contracts.

Also, to respond to a much earlier question:

Thank you in advance.

... the key is the use of the present perfect in choice (C): "Transnational cooperation has in the past been both more common and less common than it is now among United States firms." The action began in the past and is still occurring in the present, which means that there could have been changes over time.

For example, "In the past three years, the British Pound has been worth both more than $1.4 USD and less than $1.4 USD." The price of a British Pound has changed over the course of the past three years. Sometimes it was less than $1.4 USD; sometimes it was more than $1.4 USD.

In choice (C), we are comparing past levels of cooperation to current levels of cooperation. At times, there was less cooperation than there is now; other times, there was more cooperation than there is now.

I hope that helps! For more timely responses, feel free to use the request verbal experts' reply button.

C is the only answer based on the word Renaissance.
We don't know why firms collaborate and how. A & B- out
We don't know who profits and by how much? E out
Projects are less profitable but they must be worth undertaking for corporations that take them up. D out.
