Vince delivers papers. He delivers 37 newspapers to residents of his neighborhood every morning. Vince delivers all the papers in 50 minutes. Sometimes Vince's neighbor Thom, who lives on the same street, may deliver the papers for him if he is ill or has other commitments.
Find the statement that, in regard to the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:

Tom never complained about his commute because there were always seats available on the train and he could spend his 40 minutes relaxingly reading the newspaper or completing paperwork. There have been so many people on the train ever since the schedule was changed that there are no seats left when the doors open at his station.
Find the statement that, in given the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Based on the sentence, Tom didn't like his commute because he could always find a seat and work comfortably while doing papers or reading. Tom's trip has likely grown less enjoyable as a result of the timetable adjustment because it is now extremely congested and he can no longer locate a seat. Choices a, b, and d are not supported by the information provided.

May and Julie changed their travel plans after learning about the hurricane. They made reservations for a room at a posh new spa in the highlands rather than going to the island beach resort. Although their plans were a little more expensive, they were happy to locate availability so quickly because they had heard excellent things about the spa.
Find a statement that, in regard to the information given, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
This statement is true based on the first sentence. Choice A is not supported in any way. Choice b cannot be supported because the text informs us that the spa holiday is more expensive than the island beach resort vacation, but it doesn't necessarily suggest that the spa is pricey. There is no evidence to support choice c, which claims that it is typically necessary to make reservations at the spa at least six months in advance, despite the fact that the paragraph states that the couple was relieved to obtain a room on short notice.

On the East Coast, Susan resides in a sizable metropolis. Mary, her younger cousin lives in a Midwest little town with fewer than 1,000 people. Over the past five years, Mary made Susan several visits. Susan has only made one trip to Mary over the same time period.
Find the statement that, in given the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Susan must be older than Mary because the sentence indicates that she is the younger cousin. The other choices are not supported by any data.

Gemma is older than Marcy, her cousin. Gemma is older than Marcy's brother Bert. All three of them like playing a game of Monopoly when Marcy, Bert, and Gemma are together. Marcy wins more frequently than Gemma.
Find the statement that, in given the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Marcy must be the youngest of the three if Bert is older than Marcy and Gemma is older than Bert. Given that Bert is the oldest, option (c) is obviously incorrect. The paragraph contains no material to support either decision an or choice b.

Twelve years old is Ellie. She had been requesting a puppy from her folks for three years. While they have given her permission to get a bird, her parents have informed her that they don't think a dog would be content in an apartment. What breed of bird Ellie wants to own is still up in the air.
Find the statement that, in given the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
We can reasonably assume that the family lives in an apartment since Erin's parents think a dog would not be comfortable in an apartment. Option A is also baseless. Choices c and d are baseless; we don't know if Erin's parents dislike dogs or if she dislikes birds.

The Pacific Northwest is home to the evergreen Pacific yew tree. The fruit of the Pacific yew is fleshy and lethal. Taxol, a substance found in the Pacific yew's bark, was recently discovered as a promising new anticancer therapy.
Find the statement that, in given the information provided, must be true.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The only statement that may be considered true in view of the proof provided is that the fruit should not be eaten because it is poisonous. There is no proof to support either claim (options c and d) that taxol is dangerous or that it has harmed anyone. Choice d is not supported in any way.
