Jesus..Christ! What the hell was that passage? Reads like it just landed on earth from some alien mothership..

1 - right
2 - right
3 - wrong (picked B..the whole question sounded to me like "if a+b=2, then what's the color of a two-legged elephant" :P )
4 - right
5 - wrong (picked A)
6 - right (treadmill is the only word I've ever read in an economic context, so..(un)educated guess)
7 - right (although I didn't even know what "perpetuated" means...the other choices sounded even more stupid, tho.)
8 - right
9 - wrong (picked B)

I'm VERY surprised I had so many correct answers but I guarantee that was pure luck. I barely understood anything in there, I was guessing every single question...

I particularly dont understand the following:
"The nonstarters were considered the ones who wanted stability, a strong referee to give them some position in the race, a regulative hand to calm manic speculation; an authority that can call things to a halt, begin things again from compensatorily staggered “starting lines.”"

in how far is the "strong referee" related to the nonstarters? does he need to give them "some position in the race"? why would he have to regulate "manic speculation", doesnt sound like something "nonstarters" would do?!

Hi,

Can we not have the 7th one as E.
I read it as, Wilson was referring to the idea of open system/free market, and with this idea, America has been all this...
So, he, perhaps, started a presidential proclamation, I prefer.

B, somehow I can't relate at all. Where did he perpetuate/support the trad. system.
The author clearly tries to criticize the economic mythology, OK, accepted.
But, how are we sure that even before Wilson's entry, the trad. system has been the same. Seems Ok, but I prefer E, to be a better one.
Awful choices, though!!

I got 4,8,9 wron g in 16 mins. I was feeling asleep during the last two though. Still, this is not an easy one for me.

The only question I have for this particular problem is number 4. I thought it is more of a D. I assume its because D was not mentioned anywhere in the 1st paragraph.

Hi ppl i am new to gmatclub,

Could someone please explain the answer for 7th Q.

i completed the passage in 15.xx mins. Tough one but nice to solve such a passage. My answers:

1. A. bcoz the author criticizes the american economic system throughout the 2nd para. phrases like "our empty boasts from the past" point to the myths of american economic ideology.

2. B. easy one.

3. B. The answer is C. Got this wrong but understood why i was wrong. words like "regulative hand" "an authority who can halt things" all point to a judge :)

4. E. the author uses the word sterile to assert that all social changes have been very superficial and no fundamental change has taken place.

5. B. The act of giving a piece of the action symbolizes that the system is not ready for a fundamental change and rather it wants to keep things as it is by giving the have nots a small piece of the pie and keeping them satisfied. using POE too only B looks good. :)

6. C. easy one.

7 .A. the answer is B. Got this one wrong could someone explain this to me. :(

8. C. 1. no techniques are discussed anywhere in the passage. 2. old world is only mentioned in the 1st few lines of the 1st para after that nothing about its similarities or differences are discussed. 3. A firm YES

9.D. easy one.

Bumping up! found it tricky indeed; especially, the question wording

Got 6/9 correct.
Got the treadmill metaphor correct: My reason it is something on which you can keep on running without ever ending :)

I literally understood very little of what was written in the passage.
I attempted this passage in 21 minutes and I was expecting that I might get 1 or 2 correct because the RC didn't go well.
But, to my surprise when I checked the answers I got the first 7 correct and last 2 incorrect.

My answers are: A,B,C,E,B,C,B,E,B
Total Time: 21 minutes
Accuracy: 7/9 (77%)
