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%)



Hi
What you think that happened to me. I got "ONLY" 2 correct ,though thought it would have been 4 or 5.
Extremely disappointed..... :oops:

Criticizes how America focuses not enough on interdependence and too much on competition. (2nd para)

So answer of 1st question is A.

1-> A: I used POE here. None of the other options sounded right. All the other options were either partially or completely out of scope.
2-> B: None of the answers looked right to me. I chose property because it was the only one which looked as possible answer. "settled possessiveness" -> seems like something that talks about settling -> hence property.
3-> C: Since only a judge can act as a strong referee for the country.
4-> E: POE
5-> B:POE
6-> C: Its the only option that talks about movement and something that can be halted. Similar to the US economic system which is always on the move but can be brought to a halt if required, a treadmill keeps moving and is also something that can stop.
7-> B: POE. All others are OOS.
8 ->C: 1st 2 statements arent spoken about at all.
9-> D: A-> OOS. B-> Undermining of the US economic structure isnt spoken about in the passage. Not sure about C. E is absolutely not right according to the passage.

6. Which of the following metaphors could the author most appropriately use to summarize his own assessment of the American economic system (lines 35-60)?
(A) A windmill
(B) A waterfall
(C) A treadmill
(D) A gyroscope
(E) A bellows

OA is treadmill. I found it difficult to decide between windmill and treadmill.

Could you please provide an explanation. Thanks.

In question 2, could you please explain how "property" can be the answer, from which sentences, we can conclude this.

For question 4, could you please explain the meaning of first few lines of second para as in first line of it, it has been written as " reform has left america sterile" but after few lines, it has been mentioned as " america seems not to honor the stability".so got confused between positive and negative trend, what to choose and how to choose?

Fascination with this ideal has made Americans defy the “Old World” categories of settled possessiveness versus unsettling deprivation, the cupidity of retention versus the cupidity of seizure, a “status quo” defended or attacked. The United States, it was believed, had no status quo ante. Our only “station” was the turning of a stationary wheel, spinning faster and faster. We did not base our system on property but opportunity

The above answers your query about 2nd question - as far as 4th question is concerned even am in doubt. I got it wrong.

The author is trying to say that reform in America has been sterile (ie unproductive) because there was never any attempt to change the fundamental system that had taken hold in America, a system that the author compares to a race. There may have been attempts to modify or improve the rules of the race, but there was never an "attempt to call off the race" entirely. In other words, changing the rules of the race (ie modifying the existing system) would not result in significant change or reform; in order to achieve real, substantial change, there would have to be an attempt to call off the race (ie embrace an entirely different system). The latter would constitute "fundamental" reform, whereas the former constitutes only superficial reform; thus, "reform" is placed in quotes to assert that the changes to the rules of the race have resulted in superficial reform but not fundamental reform.

Can someone please tell me how can we tag this RC as sub 600 level?

I didn't even get a single word of this passage. I realized a similar passage came on my last official GMAT.

Are these really sub 600? :o

I started my RC prep today and this 1st passage has demotivated me completely. :(

Please someone help me completely decode this passage.
