@deVanharikumar Ideally it should be "whatever might be his shortcomings" but it is regularly shortened as "whatever his shortcomings"... I don't think that is a problem.

Time and again it has been shown that students who attend colleges with low faculty/student ratios get the most well-rounded education. As a result, when my children are ready to attend college, I'll be sure they attend a school with a very small student population. Which of the following, i...

@Preeti_L  Problem is that neither A or C fit perfectly, but both are possible. A is an attempt to recreate the typical "causation correlation" trap used by a GMAT examiner, but the problem is that is not logically coherent. How can a low faculty-student ratio be a result of a well-rounded education? And C is only partially refuting the argument. So I would have to go for "none of these" really. GMAT does not have this ambiguity nor does it have this logically inconsistent "answer".

No. I am saying even if the question explicitly states them to be identical, we will treat them as distinct to find the probability.

Toss 2 identical coins. What is the probability of 2 heads?

@harshcat91  No not ambiguous. From a probability point of view the boxes have to be treated as distinct entities else the sample space will not be equiprobable.

The misnomer that sibling rivalry is a thing of the 'past' history- where brothers slit each other's throats in a gory race to kinghood - *_can and does not seem appalling; but still does._*

@deVanharikumar I also find none of them making sense. A coherent sentence does not seem to be happening Possibly it should be something like "...can and should seem appalling, but still does not."
