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.

company will probably have little if any effect on its
behavior. Still, the trial was worthwhile, since it

company’s direct competitors, alerted potential rivals,
and forced the company to restrain its unfair behavior
toward customers and competitors.
Which one of the following most accurately expresses
the overall conclusion drawn in the argument?CorrectIncorrect

Chin: It’s impossible to demonstrate anything to the satisfaction of all skeptics. So long as the cultural elite remains closed-minded to the possibility of extrasensory perception, the popular media reports, and thus public opinion, will always be biased in favor of such skeptics.
Waller’s and Chin’s statements commit them to disagreeing on whetherCorrectIncorrect

A survey of address changes filed with post offices and driver’s license bureaus over the last ten years has established that households moving out of the city of Weston outnumbered households moving into the city two to one.

Which one of the following, if true, most helps strengthen the argument?CorrectIncorrect
