Review these reasoning quizzes right after you do them. For anything that you’re not 100% on google the first bunch of words of the question and seek out explanations online. If after spending some time reviewing you’re still having a tough time then bring the question to QA or to your next tutoring session. Really fight to understand the logic of these questions. Remember: 1 is correct 4 are incorrect. Really push yourself to be black and white with correct v. incorrect. It is extremely rare that two answer choices are technically OK but one is stronger. It can happen but we’re talking 1% of the time. So, with that in mind let’s have the mindset that it never happens and that we need to be binary: 1 correct. 4 incorrect. That mindset is key to improvement.

Which one of the following, if assumed, most helps to justify the reasoning in the archaeologist’s argument?CorrectIncorrect

Question 5 of 5
Microbiologist: Because heavy metals are normally concentrated in sewage sludge during the sewage treatment process, the bacteria that survive in the sludge have evolved the unusual ability to resist heavy-metal poisoning.

This suggests that the bacteria’s exposure to the heavy metals in the sewage sludge has somehow promoted their resistance to antibiotics.
Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the microbiologist’s argument?CorrectIncorrect
