Wasted toooo much time on Q2/23:

Between A & C:
A: Although Latin American women disagree about the effects urban migration has had on their lives, they agree that migration has provided them with greater opportunities for stable employment outside the home.

C. The effects that urban migration has had on Latin American women’s lives are complex and are best evaluated in light of a range of issues concerning Latin American women’s overall quality of life.

Can someone elaborate on the last question? options B, D and E are clearly out. What was the point of reasoning to choose C and not A?

Hey mate ...here is the explanation :

Refer to the following coloured part of the 1st paragraph of the passage :

While acknowledging that there are greater employment opportunities for Latin American women in cities than in the countryside, social science theorists have continued to argue that urban migration has unequivocally hurt women’s status.However, the effects of migration are more complex than these theorists presume.For example, effects can vary depending on women’s financial condition and social class.Brazilian women in the lowest socioeconomic class have relatively greater job opportunities and job security in cities than do men of the same class, although there is no compelling evidence that for these women the move to the city is a move out of poverty. Thus, these women may improve their status in relation to men but at the same time may experience no improvement in their economic standing.

Pink Font : Social Science theorist (SST) says that Urban Migration HURT women’s status.
Red Font : “HOWEVER” is the critical word here …”however” indicates that AUTHOR’s view point is different that “SST”.
And author believes (hence we also have to believe) that effect of migration is MORE complex and NOT that straight forward as the SSTs are suggesting …

Now, just try to put yourself in a conversation and imagine that you have just made a massive statement against some popular belief …what would you do …
You would probably back it up with a substantial example …right ?

So did the AUTHOR and hence the next statement started with “For example” …which was then made a specific example with the reference of BRAILIAN WOMEN…

Hence if you see Option A :
A. support an earlier assertion made by social science theorists about the effects of urban migration

it says, that author is trying to support the SST’s theory …however as explained this is NOT the case…author is infact against the theory made by SST.
Hence Option A is incorrect.

Hit Kudos if this helps…

CCBC all correct
Time- 10:23

I probably spent 45 seconds alone trying to understand the following line in paragraph 2:

However, the structure of many poor women’s work-often a labor force of one in an employer’s home-makes it difficult for them to organize to improve their economic conditions in general.

The writer definitely knew what he/she was doing when writing this sentence. haha

The author of the passage would most likely react to a claim that Latin American women have not made good use of the resources available to them by

expressing strong disagreement

offering cautious dissent because of specific case studies

withholding judgment because of insufficient evidence

offering tentative support because of some circumstantial evidence

concurring fully with the claim

I dont see this question posted but this is part of the same reading passage from the GMAT Prep software.

It can be inferred that the theorists mentioned in the first paragraph of the passage believe which of the following about the status of Latin American women who migrate from rural to urban areas?

(A) Women enjoyed a higher status in the countryside than they do in the city.

(B) Urban migration will most likely increase women's status because there are greater employment opportunities in urban than in rural areas.

(C) Although urban migration weakens extended-family exchange networks, women's overall status is not greatly affected by migration.

(D) Urban migration increases women's status in comparison to that of men of the same class.

(E) Women's status in urban areas depends primarily on how marketable their job skills are.

OA is (A) but I picked (D). Can someone explain to me why A is correct and D is not?

The passage mentions that urban migration increases women's status in a very complex manner . In one particular category of women , this conclusion holds true. However, we cannot generalise the premise for all women. Option A is directly stated in 2nd or 3rd line .

I made the same mistake . Read the last line of the passage . The only uncertainty talked about in the last sentence (Generally ) , is not related to Option B which introduces uncertainty . Only Option A is certain and matches the certainty of the author regarding usage of resources

All correct
took 10 min to solve the passage.
3min 55 sec to read it.
and the remaining time for solving the question.
I think this was not as difficult as other 700 level RC's. This might be a 600-700 level RC.
