ASSUMPTION

GWD-1-Q40:

Until Now, only injectable vaccines against influenza have been available. Parents are reluctant to subject children to the pain of injections, but adults, who are at risk of serious complications from influenza, are commonly vaccinated. A new influenza vaccine, administered painlessly in a nasal spray, is effective for children. However, since children seldom develop serious complications from influenza, no significant public health benefit would result from widespread vaccination of children using the nasal spray.

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

A. Any person who has received the injectable vaccine can safely receive the nasal-spray vaccine as well. B. The new vaccine uses the same mechanism to ward off influenza as jnjectable vaccines do. C. The injectable vaccine is affordable for all adults. D. Adults do not contract influenza primarily from children who have influenza.排除削弱。原来说给小孩注射这种新疫苗对公众健康不会有多大好处,现在就说有好处来削弱。或者理解成GAP。children seldom develop serious complications from influenza = no significant public health benefit弥补这个GAP。这里有一个分类小孩和大人。结论只考虑了小孩,从大人入手。 E. The nasal spray vaccine is mot effective when administered to adults.[D]

GWD-2-Question 11:
Many people suffer an allergic reaction to certain sulfites, including those that are commonly added to wine as preservatives. However, since there are several wine makers who add sulfites to none of the wines they produce, people who would like to drink wine but are allergic to sulfites can drink wines produced by these wine makers without risking an allergic reaction to sulfites.
喝没有添加S的酒就不会对S过敏。没有添加不等于没有
A被加进去某样东西,人们对加进去的这样东西又反映;要消除人们的反应,也要看A本身有没有这样东西。
Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

A. These wine makers have been able to duplicate the preservative effect produced by adding…...

Argument in Gmat

...Analysis of an Argument Questions for the GMAT® Exam This document contains all Analysis of an Argument questions used on the GMAT® exam. Each question is followed by this statement: Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument, what changes in the argument would make it more logically sound, and what, if anything, would help you better evaluate its conclusion. The following appeared as part of an annual report sent to stockholders by Olympic Foods, a processor of frozen foods: “Over time, the costs of processing go down because as organizations learn how to do things better, they become more efficient. In color film processing, for example, the cost of a 3-by-5-inch print fell from 50 cents for five-day service in 1970 to 20 cents for one-day service in 1984. The same principle applies to the processing of food. And since Olympic Foods will soon celebrate its 25th birthday, we can expect that our long experience will enable us to minimize costs and thus maximize profits.” Discuss how well reasoned . . . etc. The following appeared in a memorandum from the business department of the Apogee Company: “When the Apogee...

...CR TOPIC-WISE EXERCISES (700-800 LEVEL) 1 The 700-800 Club Critical Reasoning Critical Reasoning Topic 1: CONCLUSION 1. • • • • • 2. In the United States, about $5,200 per person per year is spent on health care, while in Britain the amount is about half that. A recent study indicated that middle-aged white Americans have a significantly higher rate of diabetes and heart disease than do middle-aged white Britons. Even after eliminating from the study the lifestyle differences of diet, exercise, smoking, and drinking, the data showed that the Americans have poorer health than their British counterparts. The statements above, if true, best support which of the following assertions? Health care spending in the United States should be reduced by 50%. More expensive health care causes a higher incidence of certain diseases. The money spent on health care in the United States is not being used effectively. The average health care spending for middle-aged white Americans is probably less than the average health care spending for Americans in general. Something other than diet, exercise, smoking, and drinking must account for the difference in health for the two groups in the study.

...Powerscore CR Bible Notes: Chapter 2: The Basics of Critical Reasoning -Read the information in the given order. Read the stimulus first, then question stem and then the answer choices. Why? Sometimes reading a question stem first undermines a student’s ability to fully comprehend the stimulus especially on tougher questions. It often leads to time waste because students read the stem first then the stimulus and then back to the stem. Leads to confusions or distractions because sometimes the question stem refers to information in the stimulus which may throw you off. Stimuli with two questions will once again lead to time waste because you are not re-reading one question but two questions this time! Reading the stimulus sometimes enable readers to predict the question stem. For example, “Resolve the Paradox” type of CR questions usually contain an obvious paradox or discrepancy. However, when you read the question stem first, you are not gaining or saving time in anyway. Premises give the reasons why a conclusion should be accepted. Always ask yourself “What info is the author using to convince me? Why should I believe this argument or what is the evidence behind this conclusion?” Premise Indicators: because, since, for, for example, for the reason that, in that, given that, as indicated by, due to, owing to, this can be seen from, we know this by. Conclusion Indicators: thus, therefore, hence, consequently, as a result, so, accordingly, clearly, must...

...700+ GMAT Problem Solving Probability and Combinations Questions With Explanations Collected by Bunuel Solutions by Bunuel gmatclub.com 1. Mary and Joe are to throw three dice each. The score is the sum of points on all three dice. If Mary scores 10 in her attempt what is the probability that Joe will outscore Mary in his? A. 24/64 B. 32/64 C. 36/64 D. 40/64 E. 42/64 Expected value of a roll of one dice is 1/6(1+2+3+4+5+6)=3.5. Expected value of three dices is 3*3.5=10.5. Mary scored 10 so the probability to have more then 10, or more then average is the same as to have less than average=1/2. P=1/2. Answer: B. Discussed at: http://gmatclub.com/forum/mother-mary-comes-to-me-86407.html 2. Denise is trying to open a safe whose combination she does not know. IF the safe has 4000 possible combinations, and she can try 75 different possibilities, what is the probability that she does not pick the one correct combination. A. 1 B. 159/160 C. 157/160 D. 3/160 E. 0 When trying the first time the probability Denise doesn't pick the correct combination=3999/4000 Second time, as the total number of possible combinations reduced by one, not picking the right one would be 3998/3999. Third time 3997/3998 ... And the same 75 times. So we get: [pic] every denominator but the first will cancel out and every nominator but the last will cancel out as well. We'll get 3925/4000=157/160.

...Breaking down a Long GMATPrep SC problem A student recently asked me what they should do when faced with Sentence Correction problems containing very long underlines and a “jumble” in the answer choices. Many sentence correction questions can easily be scanned vertically, in order to find differences among the answers. But in some problems, major parts of the sentence move around and the basic structure changes (for instance, an independent clause becomes dependent and vice versa). If you’re a Manhattan GMAT student, we would classify these kinds of questions as ones for which the “splits” are more challenging to identify. This week and next we’re going to analyze a couple of GMATPrep^ Sentence Correction questions that possess these characteristics. (Note: click here to read about the general process of attacking Sentence Correction questions; the techniques we discuss in this current article are to be used only when necessary.)
