We are working on a new set of Verbal Tests for GMAT Club. Several members have responded to our "Help Wanted Ad" and submitted their questions. I am posting the first batch and would love to hear your feedback about the questions. I would also like to know your opinion about how close this question is to the Real GMAT (or Official Guide if you have not taken the GMAT yet) on a 1-5 scale where
1 is not close at all
2 is not close
3 is average/undecided
4 is close
5 is exact match

I will post the OA and Explanation in 1-3 days, depending on how many takers we get. Your feedback will help significantly and very much appreciated!

3.
Other than unnecessary ",", not sure what else is wrong with A. I think wrong answer should go further than that.

Exactly felt the same. I concentrated heavily on forbid X to do Y and prohibit X from Y and did not notice comma until later.

Other than that both seem to be correct, if it were not for the comma in the first one.

Will Chose C by a hair line.

Here is the OA and Explanation: Now that the OA and explanation are posted, can you rate this question in terms of difficulty?
Let's keep the 1-5 scale with 1 being easy and 5 hard.

The idioms are forbid TO and prohibit FROM. Also, ‘Everyone’ is singular.

A – The use of the comma changes the intended meaning of the sentence.
B – Subject-Verb Agreement error
C – Idiom
D – Subject-Verb Agreement
E – This is the correct answer

It should be C, but I will check with the test writer just in case as there is a discrepancy.

Its clearly C however "copyright holder" would be more appropriate to match singular noun in the underlined part..

3/5

I had narrowed down to B, C and E - I would say it is C but have to agree with the previous post - it should be "copyright holder". It's a good question.

Any difficulty feedback?

I would rate it between 650 and 700.
Forbidden was too strong. So, C was an easy choice.
