Hi, Happy to elucidate my understanding of question-3,

The author mentions which of the following as a disadvantage of urban employment for Latin American women in the lowest socioeconomic group?
A. It is difficult for these women to obtain reliable, long-term employment. (Nowhere in the passage is this described as a disadvantage of urban employment for Latin American women in the lowest socioeconomic group, whereas, what mentioned is- [color=#00ffff] poor women working in urban areas actively seek to cultivate long-term employer-employee relations )[/color]
B. It is difficult for these women to organize effectively in order to obtain better wages. Bingo! The last line of the 2nd paragraph clearly says- [color=#00ffff]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. , and from this we can infer the option to be correct[/color]
C. It is difficult for these women to find employers who are supportive when emergencies arise. The 2nd paragraph again says that they do find employers who are supportive when emergencies arise
D. The structure of their jobs makes it difficult for these women to participate in exchange networks. 2nd para, incorrect
E. Working in urban areas makes these women more vulnerable to health problems than they would be in rural areas.Nowhere mentioned about health problems as a disadvantage.

Missing question:

Q. 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?

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

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

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

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

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

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?


I WOULD SAY D IS WRONG BECAUSE WE ESSENTIALLY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WHAT THE THEORISTS BELIEVE REGARDING COMPARISON OF WOMEN'S STATUS VERSUS MEN'S STATUS. HOWEVER I CAN SEE HOW IT IS MISLEADING BECAUSE IT CONTAINS FAMILIAR LANGUAGE WHICH WAS USED IN THE EXCERPT. THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON MISLEADING TACTIC GMAT TESTMAKERS USE. SO PRACTICE OVERCOMING THIS. YOU'LL SEE IT OFTEN.

I WOULD SAY A IS THE MOST CORRECT BEING THAT ALL WE KNOW IS THAT THE THEORISTS DONT AGREE WITH WOMEN MOVING TO URBAN CITIES IN PURSUIT OF A HIGHER STATUS. THEREFORE, ALL WE CAN ASSUME IS THAT THEORISTS MOST LIKELY BELIEVE A WOMAN'S SOCIAL STATUS IS HIGHER IN THE RURAL PLACES THEYRE MIGRATING FROM.
