Hey Dagny

I am planning to give GMAT in mid september, though I have not taken a date yet. I want to gear up a little bit and would than take the date. I have started with OG 12 and have almost done 90 questions for SC. I am planning to go for this post with queries specifically from OG. I think it would be helpful for everyone.

Moreover, i am putting attention to the reasons for why a choice is not an answer. This gets me understand a lot due to which I have lots of queries which I am planning to post. I will come up with my queries at night.

I start the queries

1) can two infinitives come together eg. to begin seriously to study

2) why is 'not accompanied' preferred over unaccompanied

  Hello arbit and shilpi,

Before you go through any question, go through the Dagny's SC guide which is available in the forum itself.

thanks kunal

I have already gone through that guide. but to be practical, I think going through the guide in one go would make things confusing. so I am slowly and slowly moving with it. but i have queries from it as well which i will be posting here

  hi,
I believe not accompanied is preferred over unaccompanied as it puts more stress on the negative.

query:

It is difficult to prevent crimes against property as those that are against a person.

  1. those that are against a
  2. those against a
  3. it is against a
  4. preventing those against a
  5. it is to prevent those against a

Why E is correct?

  Hi arbit....

1 and 2 are wrong as this statement starts from singular IT. so as per parallelism it shld not start with those

4 is violating parallelism (preventing against to prevent)


3 and 5 seems fine. 5 looks more parallel

still y 3 is wrong. some1 please post y 3 is wrong.  does it missing wht is preventing agaist person. so we shld specify those(for crimes)? is it?
Re: OG queries
by arbit man - Friday, 24 July 2009, 01:21 PM
  3 could be probably wrong because crimes is plural whereas 'it' will refer to a singular noun
