GMATNinja need your help with Q3,

The passage says"most small asteroids should be monolithic" , While the answer choice states "Small asteroids will be monolith", Is it safe to assume it always will be monolithic? because the passage clearly uses a should & the answer choice uses a will, kind of extreme.

Hey Manat

I think that's a nice doubt. Just my take on it.

It is very important to pay attention to every word in the question stem as well.
When we read the question stem carefully - '' which of the following is a prediction .. ''
So according to the passage '' most small asteroids should be monolithic. ''
And according to question what is the '' prediction '' from this part of the passage?
That the small asterdiods will be monoliths.

I think the word '' prediction'' changes everything. It removes the extreme use of "will" that you have stated.

Hope this helped!

GMATNinja please correct me if I'm wrong!

Great analysis, blitzkriegxX! Manat, please see @BlitzkriegxX's post. He's spot on. (And he also kinda looks like that guy who was smooching Kate Winslet when the Titanic sunk. He recovered nicely from that whole situation, apparently...)

[Edit: ack, I didn't see your response until just now, Manat! Sorry for the totally unnecessary post.]

Bunuel Could you please change tag to short passage instead of long passage as it is a short passage.
