When you go for bath and open the tap to fill the bathtub and start thinking how long it will take to fill it? How long it will take to fill if I open it's drain? What is the rate at which it is filling?

Well Friends, I now strongly feel that I have been studying too hard for the GMAT. The reason is the following advertisement published by a local doctor of our town to advertise his Hypnotism therapy.

Here is the introductory paragraph of the advertisement explaining the history of Hypnotism.
[Disclaimer :- I do not have any intention of insulting or making fun of any individual. This is just an attempt to bring smile on the face of my friends over here, who are tired by hectic GMAT Practice.]

A German scientist Dr.Franz Mesmer (1734 - 1815) who invented a HIGH QUALITY HYPNOTISM is called as MESMERISM.
[I also have the same question like many of you do - What is called as MESPERISM?? Hypnotism or scientist??]

The founder of Homoeopathy Dr.Samuel Hahnemann (1756 - 1842) who understood the greatness & efficacy of MESMERISM in treatment of human beings.
[Wow! Noun+Noun Modifier alone forming a sentence. Hope to have such options on real GMAT. POE will rock.]

So he mentioned about Dr.Franz Mesmer & Mesmerism in chapter 288 & 289 of "Organon of Medicine of Homoeopathy".
[Independent clause is preceded by redundant co-ordinating conjunction 'So']

Since then Mesmerism is a part of Homoeopathy.
[Since when??? since Dr.Mesmer invented HIGH QUALITY HYPNOTISM or since Dr.Hahnemann mentioned about it in chap nos 288/289 in his book??]

Hahnemann suggested that use of MESMERISM can treat & or shorten the period of treatment of Homoeopathic medicines.
['use of Mesmerism' will treat or 'Mesmerism' itself will treat. And together they will treat to or shorten the period of treatment of whom?? Medicines or Patient?]

I am using MESMERISM - A HIGH QUALITY HYPNOTISM for treating many conditions like ----
[Here 'like' is followed by 3 conditions]

1- Several meters away, I noticed something like "GMAC Book" on my desk! Comming nearer, I saw my "MacBook" !!! Recently, it was primarily used as a GMacBook, by the way...
2- in an argument with my husband(albeit not too serious!!): " YOUR REASONING IS NEVER EVER CONVINCING, I CALL YOUR UNDERLYING ASSUMPTIONS INTO QUESTION, AND YOU SIMPLY INSIST ON THE RESULT BASED ON THEM?!!! " ... "This guy should definitely study CR. aaaaaaaaaah!!!"
