FACTS: Vowel-first words are Nick's favorites. Only words with consonants are favorites of Brent's. Conrad only enjoys words with the letter C.

Conclusion: No words appeal to Nick and Conrad in the same way.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
While Nick prefers terms that begin with vowels, Conrad exclusively likes words that begin with the letter C. Nick and Conrad won't like the same words because C is not a vowel.

In order to combat smokers and the economic burden they place on the nation, the government has recently resorted to shock tactics (manifested in sick days and health issues). The most recent anti-smoking advertisement featured tumors developing on a cigarette. This advertisement was, needless to say, divisive. On the one hand, the advertisement has generated a lot of interest in the topic since it was first released and has become a viral hit. However, some contend that such a direct strategy doesn't actually work because it makes individuals extremely terrified. When someone suspects they may have cancer or a symptom of cancer, they are inclined to make an effort to forget about it.

Which of the following, while keeping the passage's sense, would be the best replacement for "contentious"?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
"Contentious" refers to something that is tense or contested. It can be changed to the term "controversial" in the passage's context.

The sentence that follows its use provides a clue as to the word's meaning: "Needless to say, this advertisement was divisive. On one hand... Yet another thing is... This wording makes it clear that the advertisement was controversial and that it had both positive and bad consequences.

Also keep in mind that the meanings of all three distractions are extremely similar (they are all negative adjectives), which may provide still another clue as to what the word's actual definition is.

Joshua, Mary, Miriam, Benny, and Eleanor are in line for the Ferris wheel. Miriam isn't in front. Benny is directly in front of Eleanor. Joshua follows.
If Eleanor is behind Miriam, which of the following is true?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
One sentence at a time, we must review the information given.
Miriam isn't first, so you know she can't be on the left-most line (lines are read from first to last from left to right), but it doesn't mean she can be on any of the other lines. You can see exactly where Ben and Eleanor are positioned with respect to one another in the next sentence. Joshua is second, and you already know Miriam isn't first, therefore Mary is the only one who could be. Benny would have to come in second if Eleanor were to come in first, which goes against what you already know.

Now that Mary and Joshua have been added to the row to the left of Eleanor and Benny, Miriam can either be third or last.

FACTS: Jimmy, Albert, Eddie, and Frederick all participate in a basketball league. Albert will be traded if he doesn't score at least 10 points in the following game. In the event that Jimmy is traded, Frederick will take his place on the team. Only if Albert and Edward score at least twice as many points as Jimmy in the following game will Jim be moved. Jimmy was not traded following the following game.

After the following game, Albert was not traded.

Of these, which is true?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
We only know that Albert and Eddie did not score at least twice as many points as Jimmy if Jimmy was not traded. Only if Albert does not score at least 10 points in the following game will he be traded. Al's point total is unknown, hence we are unable to say whether or whether Albert was traded following the game.

Assume that the first two claims are accurate. Based on the information given, is the final statement: 1) True, 2) False, or 3) Uncertain?
The entire football team showed up at the gym.

Benjamin showed up at the gym.

On the football team is Benjamin.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Benjamin is not required to be on the football team in order to attend the gym. The third sentence would have been accurate if it had been stated that there were just football team players present in the gym.

A conclusion must be made with certainty in order for it to be considered "true," and not just an alternative.

Lilies and roses are grown in an organic greenhouse 11:10 in favor of the roses. The greenhouse owner received a flood of orders on Valentine's Day, and his entire supply of flowers was gone. How many more roses than lilies were sold if the total number of lilies sold was 2,000?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
We have both a ratio and an absolute value in this query. Therefore, once we determine the value of a ratio unit, we can quickly determine the rest of the values.

Since the ratio of roses to lilies is 11:10, we can think of the 2,000 lilies as 10 units of the ratio, which means that there are 200 lilies for every unit of the ratio. One unit separates the number of roses from the number of lilies or 200 in this case: 11-10.

FACTS: There are five homes on a street, ordered from left to right (1-2-3-4-5). Every house has a distinctive quality. A gate leads to the front yard of one home. House #4 is not the home with the front porch. The home on the left-hand side lacks a blue door. Right after the house with the long driveway comes the one with the garden. The home with the front yard gate is located one home to the left of the home with the garden and two homes to the right of the home with the front porch.

Conclusion: The porch is on House 2.

Of these, which is true?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The home with the gate leading to the front yard can only be house 3, 4, or 5 if it is located two homes to the right of the home with the front porch.

The home with the gate to the front yard can only be house 3 or 4, and the house with the garden can only be house 4 or 5. If the house with the gate to the front yard is also one house to the left of the house with the garden, then the two houses must be houses 4 or 5.

If the residence with the garden is located directly across from the residence with the expansive driveway, then the residence with the garden must be residence 4.

As a result, home number three is the residence with the gate leading to the front yard, whereas home number five has a large driveway. If the home on the left does not have a blue door, then house number two must also lack a front porch if it has a blue door. The porch is in front of House 1.
