The development of hydrogen-powered cars harridan: B First, figure out how many hours Billie worked. Proper use of scratch paper ensures that techniques are happening and happening correctly. Control by detail a species that may be more ef- natural predators? GRE Downloads.

Compare this to Column B, and realize that you can ignore a 2 in each column. A Plug In a three-digit integer, such as Swapping the 1 and the 3 gives you Subtracting from gives you which is already positive, so its absolute value is also Plug In another number, such as Its hash is Subtracting from gives you 99, which is not divisible by 2, so eliminate choice E.

Even if the hundreds digit or the units digit are zero, the difference between a three-digit inte- ger and its hash is still divisible by 9. A Before you start multiplying these huge numbers, realize that no GRE question requires a great deal of arithmetic. Notice that the three digits after the thousands place have merely been swapped to form Column B from Column A. Similarly, the result from multiplying the Last expressions is 43 in both Columns.

So these expressions can be ignored in comparing the two Columns. All that remains is the Outer terms added to the Inner terms. Column A is larger. Squaring gives you , whose last digit is therefore the last digit in 92, that is, 1. Hence, both Columns are equal, and the answer is choice C. QOR must measure 30 degrees. PS is a diameter, so the circumference of the circle must be.

The triangle inside sector QOR is. The remaining angle must be 60 degrees to add up to So, the leg of the triangle across from. OR will have length 2 3. C Column B contains a common quadratic pattern. Factor the right-hand side. Both Columns are equal, so the answer is choice C.

D Plug In 2 for n to find the second term in the sequence: Now Plug In 2 into the answer choices for n to see which equals Only choice D works. A The Columns are already represented as the product of prime factors: Be careful! Remember that you are being asked to determine the greater of these two Columns. C To find the average of a list of numbers, add them up and divide by the number of elements in the list.

You can substitute this into the simplified 4 form of Column B as follows: Both Columns are equal, so the answer is choice 4 4 4 C. Alternatively, you can Plug In values for a, b, c, and d. The easiest way to make their average. C Plug In an easy number for the width of the smaller square, such as 3. Drawing in the diagonal of a square forms two triangles, so the diagonal the hypotenuse of either triangle has length 3 2.

The area of the shaded region is the result when the area of the smaller square is subtracted from that of the larger: Thus, both Columns are equal, and the answer is choice C. E First, evaluate x: Notice that the answers are presented as powers of 3, not a list of actual numbers. C Be systematic. Start generating solutions x, y, z by making x and y as small as possible, so that z will be as large as possible: Now increase x and y one unit at a time to try to make z decrease to 3: At this point, if you increase either x or y by 1, z becomes 3, but the variable you increased becomes greater than 3: No matter what you do, one of the variables will be greater than 3.

Thus, all solutions include a variable greater than 3, and the answer is choice C. Try setting up your actual equation before doing any calculations.

The current amount of grapefruit sales is. Notice that you have the same terms on both sides of the minus sign. This means that we can factor these terms out, like this: Now take a look at the answer choices.

Choice E fits the bill with. D To find the average membership, add up the total membership and divide by the number of years. D First, simplify the expression in each Column by splitting up the fraction.

Both Columns contain 1, so it can be elimi- y 11 17 5 nated from the comparison. Now Plug In 12 for y: Column A is larger, so eliminate choices B and C.

Column B is larger, so 16 16 11 11 eliminate choice A ; the answer is choice D. B First, simplify the expression in each Column by turning it into a fraction. Thus, Column A. Both Columns contain 1, so it 0. Therefore, the answer is choice B. If you double the number, and keep the ratio, there would be 30 singers. To have at least 40 singers with the same ratio, the actual total would be 45, or 3 times 15, which means there are three times the number of basses 3 in the ratio, or 9.

A Notice that the question gives you information about p and q, and the answer choices refer to m and n. Therefore, you need to isolate those from the variables x and y by factoring. Regrouping the first. Substituting the. Moving the second. A The number of senior managers in was In , there were 22, 5 so the increase from to was 2; the answer is choice A. A In the first bar graph, the average salary, in dollars, actually appears to have slightly decreased from to , so statement I is false.

Eliminate choices B and E. In the second bar graph, there were 8 senior managers in , so statement II is also false. Eliminate choices C and D ; the answer is choice A. In an equilateral triangle, all three angles measure 60 degrees. Plug In an easy number for a, such. All three sides have length 4, and because you are given that Y and X are the midpoints of UW. Using YW as the side opposite the.

Plugging In 4 for a in. You only know that y is between x and z, and you are given no information about whether the points are on the positive or negative half of the number line, so you cannot determine which is closer to 0, so the answer is choice D. D Together, Rachel and Rob cover of the miles in one hour. This means that they cover 4 3 that distance in that time, that is, 90 miles in any 45 minute period.

So, 45 minutes before they 4 meet, they are 90 miles apart, and the answer is choice D. If you picked choice E , you found. B First, figure out how many hours Billie worked. From 9 a. She started work. So Billie worked approximately 8 hours. C The single-digit primes are 2, 3, 5, and 7. Be systematic in listing the results. Start with 2, adding it to the other numbers, then move to 3, and so forth: Verbal Drill 1. B This sentence employs parallel structure, and the semicolon trigger tells you that both blanks will go in the same direction.

You can recycle fragmentation for the first blank and failure for the sec- ond blank; POE all answers except choice B. B Although the most familiar definition of the word pique is to excite interest or curiosity, the pri- mary definition is to wound pride or vanity. Aggrieve is a synonym for the meaning tested here, and rouse is a synonym of the more familiar definition of pique. If you know that pique is negative, then you know you need a positive word. Aggrieve is negative, so eliminate choice A.

Dulcify means to mollify, which is a pretty good match, so the best answer is choice B. E Insensible means unconscious or unaware, so the opposite is aware.

Insensate is a synonym. Prag- matic and rational are traps, because if you think that insensible means not sensible, you are looking for an answer like sensible. Cognizant means aware, so the best answer is choice E. D Luminous means emitting light, so the opposite is characterized by darkness.

Incandescent is a syn- onym. Lum means light, so the correct answer must have something to do with darkness. Stygian means dark or gloomy, so the best answer is choice D. B Singularity is unusualness or exceptionalness, so the opposite is normality.

Singularity contains the word singular, so plurality is a trap. Depending on the context, singularity is either positive or neu- tral, so you can eliminate solely positive words. Hilarity and celerity are positive; eliminate choices A and D. Ordinariness means normality, so the best answer is choice B. D Austere means bare or unadorned, so the opposite is adorned.

Spartan is a synonym. Spartan, unadventurous, and fiendish are nega- tive and ticklish is neutral; eliminate choices A , B , C , and E. Plumed means adorned, so the best answer is choice D. Note the sec- ondary meaning of hedge here; you can see that it is a verb by comparing it to the other right-side words. A valedictory think of the valedictorian at a graduation is someone who says goodbye, not someone whose purpose is to greet the audience.

An affidavit is speech used to swear that a state- ment is true, so keep choice B. A peroration does not summarize; in fact, a peroration is a very long speech. The prefix per- can mean through or thoroughly, so peroration is an oration which is very thorough and lengthy.

A homily is a sermon which gives a moral lesson, but it may or may not praise someone. Finally, an exhortation is speech used to encourage an audience, not dismiss it, leaving you with choice B for the answer. E A miscreant is a person with a base or villainous nature. Note the secondary meaning of base here, which you can see is an adjective by glancing at the other right-side words. Is a harridan a charming person? Actually, no—a harridan is a scolding, shrewish woman.

Is a magistrate, or a legal admin- istrator, a lax person? Not necessarily. An adjudicator is someone who judges a situation, but is not necessarily dismissive. A regent is someone who helps rule, but a regent is not necessarily stately. Finally, a tyro is a beginner, or someone who is green, leaving you choice E for the answer. C Although the primary definition of penurious is stingy, it can also mean poor. Parsimonious is a synonym for the primary definition. If you know that penurious is negative, you know you need a positive word.

Penal and parsimonious are clearly negative, so eliminate choices D and E. Wealthy means rich, so the best answer is choice C. E The sentence starts with a different direction trigger: In this case the sentence is looking for something which is the opposite of subjective. A good word for the blank, therefore, would be objective. This is supported by the notion that the definition must be verifiable. Empirical means provable and is therefore the best synonym. The answer is choice E.

A A quarry is the goal of a hunt; for example, a quarry could be a buck or a fox.

The choices use some hard vocabulary, so try to eliminate choices with words you know based on this relationship. For example, is an accolade, or statement of praise, the goal of a campaign? Is an epit- ome the goal of a culture? No, so eliminate that choice as well. Is an anomaly the goal of a puzzle?

You are left with two difficult choices.

A terminus is the endpoint, or goal, of a voyage. A guer- don is a reward, which is not the goal of a repetition, leaving you with choice A for the answer. D The trigger although introduces two conflicting aspects of hydrogen-powered cars.

The first clue states that hydrogen contains more energy per gallon than does gasoline, which is a good thing. The trigger indicates a change of direction, so a good word for the first blank is challenged. Start with the first half of the answers and look for a word that means challenged. The second blank continues in the same direction as the first, based on the second trigger, thus, so a good word for that blank is unlikely.

That means you can eliminate choice B , because convenient does not match unlikely. Choice D is the best match. Thus, the cyclical structure supports a critical interpretation of the novel. Choice D best summarizes this idea.

B In the first paragraph, the author states, The remaining twelve chapters act as a counterpoint, com- menting on—if not reversing,—the first part where a morality play receives greater confirmation. Throughout the passage, the author shows that the novel has certain elements that do not fit nicely into a unified vision of the book. Choice B is the best restatement of the information given in the passage. E Asperity means harshness in tone or manner, so the opposite is friendliness or warmth.

If you know that asperity is negative, you know you need a positive answer. Visual expression and partition are neutral, and contretemps is negative; eliminate choices A , B , and C.

You can also eliminate choice D , because, like visual expression, it has no opposite. Empressement means extreme cordial- ity, so the best answer is choice E. D Someone who is impeccable is faultless, or not deserving of reproach.

There is some tough vocabu- lary in the answer choices. Start by trying to eliminate based on vocabulary you know. For exam- ple, an implacable person is beyond pleasing, not undeserving of stoicism. Something interminable is endless, but not undeserving of a sojourn, or a brief stay.

Someone impotent lacks puissance, but is not undeserving of it. Something indeterminate is not deserving of certitude because it is not certain; hold on to that choice. A quagmire may be impenetrable, but something impenetrable is not unworthy of a quagmire, leaving you with choice D as the best answer.

B To abdicate is to formally demit—or give up—a position. Enter is the reverse of disembark. Do demit and abdicate seem similar or dif- ferent? If you know that they are similar words, you can eliminate choice A by using this side-of- the-fence approach.

To ratify something is to formally approve it, which does match the stem-pair relationship, if you were able to recognize it. Even if you did not know that relationship yet, keep choice B because it does at least have a defining relationship. Maintain and supply do not have a defining relationship you could maintain something by supplying it, but this is a stretch, not a definition , so eliminate choice C.

To unfetter someone is to liberate them, so keep choice D for now. Receive and rescind have no relationship, eliminating choice E. Comparing your final op- tions—choice B and choice D —the aspect of formality makes choice B the better match and the best answer.

E If the jury acquitted the defendant, or let him off the hook, the prosecutor could not have done a very good job. Therefore, you know that he failed to make a good argument, despite the fact that he had a lot of something to bolster his claims.

What would bolster, or help, his claims? Some great evidence would definitely help him, so use evidence for the second blank. Working from the first blank first, you can see that condescending and dubious do not match the word you filled in, good. Meticulous, trenchant, and cogent all could refer to good arguments, so keep those choices for now.

Look at the second blank options; consternation and sanctimony do not match evidence. Substantia- tion is a good match, so select choice E. A A mercenary is a hired soldier. Looking at your choices, an amanuensis is a hired stenographer. Botanist and researcher do not have a defining relationship.

Academician is a fancy word for professor, and a culinarian is a fancy word for cook, but neither pair matches the stem pair relationship, leaving you with choice A for the answer. D The article is described in turns as having detractors and as a fixture in the literature.

There is more than one trigger in the sentence, so be sure to keep track of which clues are relevant to which blank. If you start with the first blank, and know the meanings of abjure and detractor, you might infer that the article was often criticized. You can immediately eliminate choice B. Cited and evidenced are distracting choices. They are associated with research and publication, but it is unlikely that someone would regret writing a frequently cited work.

The second blank is neutral, but knowing that polemic discourse followed for years after its publication, you should look for a word that means encouraged.

Forestalled is opposite in meaning to encouraged, therefore you can eliminate choice B. Choice D is the best match here. C In order to answer this question, you must understand what critical theory is. The third paragraph mentions critical theory directly, and states that its proponents believe the dominant classes would never create or foster an educational system that taught subordinate classes how to critically evaluate so- ciety and the injustices it contains.

This most closely matches statement II. Eliminate choice A. The second paragraph is also important because the author states that critical theorists share the views of the theorists mentioned in the second paragraph. These theorists hold that the stratification of American society is preserved…by the creation of what Marx termed false consciousness…The theory holds that the way people think about their society and their history is crucial to maintaining the status quo.

This matches statement I. Eliminate choices B and D. The third choice is incorrect. The author mentions this point in the critique of critical theory in the final paragraph.

Choice C is the best answer. B Choice B is supported by the final lines of the passage, which indicate that textbook publishers are first and foremost seeking to maximize profit. Thus, textbooks are not just teaching instruments, but money makers. Choice A is not supported by the passage. Choice C is wrong; the passage simply says the literature is more comprehensive.

Choice D is not supported by the passage. Although the author rejects the idea that the power elites are in con- trol of textbooks, it may still be true that publishers take their views into account.

Choice E is put forth by the critical theorists, but it is not necessarily true. D In the final paragraph, the author states, but critical theory and other theories that lay the blame for American ignorance of history on the doorstep of the elites cannot explain their own success.

Thus, there must be other theories similar to critical theory and critical theory is not unique, which supports choice D. There is no information to support either choice A or B. Choice C is wrong be- cause critical theory is used by educational theorists, not historians. Choice E is not supported by the passage. Griffin and Marci- ano contend that history textbooks promote nothing more than hegemony. The choice that most closely matches this sentence is choice C. The other choices are not mentioned in conjunction with Grif- fin and Marciano.

B Luculent means clear or easy to understand, so the opposite is difficult to understand. Comprehen- sible is a synonym. If you know that luculent is positive, you know you need a negative word. Comprehensible and intelligent are positive; eliminate choices A and E. Recondite means difficult to understand, so the best answer is choice B. D The first paragraph states that ragweed is one of the most noxious wind-borne allergens. Later, the paragraph states that humidity rates above seventy percent tend to depress the spread of pollen by caus- ing the grains to clump.

Nothing supports choice B. Choice E goes too far; the passage states that ragweed pollen is the cause of most cases not all as the choice states. B The answer to this question lies in the line, Some species of Lepidoptera butterflies, skippers, and moths larvae feed on ragweed, but this arena of control is not well funded, and consequently not well- researched.

The author mentions the species to indicate that there may be a potential answer to the problem of controlling ragweed, but this answer has not been fully explored. This most closely matches choice B. Choice C is wrong because the species discussed are not mammals. The mention of some species of Lepidoptera is not used to plead with the govern- ment.

Choice E is incorrect because earlier in the passage the author indicates that complete elimination of the ragweed is unlikely. E The primary meaning of countenance is face or visage, but when used as a verb it means to tolerate or approve. If you know that innervate is a medical word that relates to nerves, you can eliminate choice A —oth- erwise, hold on to it.

Sanction and tolerate are both synonyms for countenance. Interdict means to prohibit or forbid, which is closer to what we need, making the best answer choice E. E This is definitely a difficult question, starting with hard vocabulary in the stem pair. A dupe is someone who is easy to cozen, or trick. Do navigate and martyr have a defining rela- tionship? No, so eliminate choice A.

Similarly, ensconce and mercenary have no real connection. A narcissist is someone who is likes to panegyrize, or bestow praises upon, him or herself. Could a dupe be someone who likes to cozen him or herself? Maybe—keep choice C. Inflame and alche- mist do not have a defining relationship.

A churl is a rude and boorish person, who would be easy to contemn. A dupe is someone who is easy to cozen, or fool, so choice E is a good match for the stem- pair relationship. That makes more sense than choice C does, making choice E the best answer. C Start with one blank at a time. If you move to the second blank, the clue initiates may signify that new followers have begun simplified existence. You should then be able to eliminate choice A.

Turning back to the first blank, you know that new followers have joined the movement in order to prioritize financial necessities, thus you might infer that the economy is bad. Now eliminate answers B , D , and E. Choice C is the best match here.

Column A Column B x 3 1. The triangle inside sector QOR is a triangle because angle QOR measures 30 degrees and you are shown a right angle. So, the leg of the triangle across from the 30 degree angle will be half of OQ, which is 2, and the other leg that forms part of radius OR will have length 2 3.
