In parts of South America, vitamin-A deficiency is a serious health problem, especially among children. In one region, agriculturists hope to improve nutrition by encouraging farmers to plant a new variety of sweet potato called SPK004 that is rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. The plan has good chances of success, since sweet potato is a staple of the region's diet and agriculture, and the varieties currently grown contain little beta-carotene.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the prediction that the plan will succeed?

The recent upheaval in the office-equipment retail business, in which many small firms have gone out of business, has been attributed to the advent of office equipment “superstores” whose high sales volume keeps their prices low. This analysis is flawed, however, since even today the superstores control a very small share of the retail market.

Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the argument that the analysis is flawed?

Excavations of the Roman city of Sepphoris have uncovered numerous detailed mosaics depicting several readily identifiable animal species: a hare, a partridge, and various Mediterranean fish. Oddly, most of the species represented did not live in the Sepphoris region when these mosaics were created. Since identical motifs appear in mosaics found in other Roman cities, however, the mosaics of Sepphoris were very likely created by traveling artisans from some other part of the Roman Empire.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

Following several years of declining advertising sales, the Greenville Times reorganized its advertising sales force two years ago. Before the reorganization, the sales force was organized geographically, with some sales representatives concentrating on city-center businesses and others concentrating on different outlying regions. The reorganization attempted to increase the sales representatives' knowledge of clients' businesses by having each sales representative deal with only one type of industry or of retailing. After the reorganization, advertising sales increased.

In assessing whether the improvement in advertising sales can properly be attributed to the reorganization, it would be helpful to find out each of the following EXCEPT:

India to America...

Hyderabad issued the most F-1 visas from India followed by Mumbai. Here's a list of Indian cities with the highest number of F-1 visa.


Hyderabad sends more students to US than Delhi, Mumbai - The Times of India

WASHINGTON: If the American educational system were to seek a mascot to advertise itself, a nerdy Indian grad student or geeky Chinese undergraduate would be ideal; a combination of the two would be perfect.

Radio stations with radio data system (RDS) technology broadcast special program information that only radios with an RDS feature can receive. Between 1994 and 1996, the number of RDS radio stations in Verdland increased from 250 to 600. However, since the number of RDS-equipped radios in Verdland was about the same in 1996 as in 1994, the number of Verdlanders receiving the special program information probably did not increase significantly.

Political advocacy groups have begun to use information services to disseminate information that is then accessed by the public via personal computer. Since many groups are thus able to bypass traditional news sources, whose reporting is selective, and to present their political views directly to the public, information services present a more balanced picture of the complexities of political issues than any traditional news source presents.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument above depends?

If some option had said that different environments cause different effects, you still don't know whether oil and dirt will cause the strings to go dead. "Different environments" could mean sunshine and child. Also, such an option would suggest that the environment affects the "speed" but not the "likelihood of going dead" of the guitar strings.

Did you type out this question from someplace? Some errors: The question stern must have "investigations" not the singular "investigation". In the answer options, "weather" must be "whether".


Urban air contains more sulfur dioxide than does rural air, and plants in cities typically grow more slowly than do plants in rural areas. In an experiment to see how much of the difference in growth is due to sulfur dioxide, classes in an urban and a rural school grew plants in greenhouses at their schools and filtered the greenhouse air to eliminate sulfur dioxide. Plants in the urban greenhouse grew more slowly than those in the rural greenhouse.

Which of the following, if true, would it be most important to take into account in evaluating the result?

With a record number of new companies starting up in Derderia and with previously established companies adding many jobs, a record number of new jobs were created last year in the Derderian economy. This year, previously established companies will not be adding as many new jobs overall as such companies added last year. Therefore, unless a record number of companies start up this year, Derderia will not break its record for new jobs created.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument relies?

Hi,

Im scheduled to be taking my GMAT on 20 September'14.    

I was enrolled with Princeton Review. - So far I have completed the Princeton Review material (online and Paper)

- I have completed the OG-13 edition, thereafter I started with the OG 12 edition However iv observed that almost all of the questions in the OG 12edition are repeated(as in same as 13th edition)                  

As evident from the date above i currently have an entire month of Prep time on Hand.

Can someone please suggest a book that i can take to for practice in the remaining days (especially for Verbal).      

 My choice would be the Quant/Verbal review by GMAC. However if the questions are not going to be challenging enough then it will not make great practice for me.                                                              

Practice Test scores - 610 - 630 (on the Princeton tests) I need to make it to 700 - 710

Please suggest.

Best Regards.

Hi Carl

There is nothing better than the official content to practice. So, I would suggest to go ahead with Quant/Verbal review practice. I know that its too less for a month. let me know, once you are done with the review books and also the error log for both the books and I would be able to help you with a proper practice schedule for the rest of the days.

As @perwinsharma has suggested, focus on Official sources. Verbal Review/Exam Pack 1/Question Pack 1 etc.

Since you have gone through the Princeton review mocks, I want to know how are the mocks. I am thinking of buying the set of mocks.

My problem is : I am stuck in 710-730 (VA - 35-39). Need some more practice mocks to hone the skills.

@Praveen  - Thanks for your response. And i shall definitely hold you to your word, and get back to you once im done with the OG-verbal rev.  :-)

Kinjal -- Thanks again for you feedback...

With regard to the Mocks, I would suggest you give the Princeton Mocks a pass for now; I am done with 6 of them so far and i somehow found them to be slightly on the easier scale, especially the quants (my problem is pacing), If your already in the 700+ scale I dont think princeton is a good idea... I'd suggest you look at alternatives. Manhatten gmat is known to have tough mocks from what i hear..
