Plain simple, they have not studied the concepts.
For algebra there are concepts, for geometry there are concepts so why not for GMAT Critical reasoning.
Let me take you through one concept in Critical reasoning
Concept: Inference vs assumption
What is an inference? What is an assumption….
Test aspirants get confused with these two terms.
Lets take an example and clear the confusion
If A>B and B>C ….what can you conclude?…. Yes A>C
A>C is a conclusion.
Now what is an inference.
If A>;B you can infer B….. This is an inference.
You need more than one statement(CR term-premises) to arrive at a conclusion. You can arrive at an inference with one statement.
Lets take a CR case
In film and videotape, it is possible to induce viewers to project their feeling on to characters on screen. In one study, when a camera shot of a woman’s face was preceded by a shot of a baby in a crib, the audience thought that the woman’s face was registering happiness. When the same shot of the woman’s face was preceded by a shot of a lion running toward the camera, the audience thought that the woman’s face was registering fear.
Find out the inference……..common give it a shot….
First look out for a premise….
“when a camera shot of a woman’s face was preceded by a shot of a baby in a crib, the audience thought that the woman’s face was registering happiness.”
When the audience saw the picture of the baby, they thought the woman washappy,but in actuallity it was the audience
itself that was happy.
So you can infer –
A camera shot of a baby in a crib provoked feelings of happiness in the audience.
Similarly since there is one more evidence there can be one more inference.
A camera shot of a lion running towards camera provoked feelings of fear in the audience.
Simple…… Yes CR is as simple as this if you know concepts…mail me if you want more info….
