flaw questions - anyone else see the flaw yet pick the wrong

Postby flash21 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 5:41 pm

answer choice? anyone else with this problem? I'll usually be between two and just pick the wrong one, even though I've identified the flaw relatively quickly. this is for those answer choices worded a bit more convoluted than usual.

thanks.

Either you don't understand the flaw as well as you think you do, or you're not reading closely enough.

There are some answer choices are written in a way that's just mean, though. So I know what the OP is talking about.

For those, since this is a question in the characterization family, all the elements of the answer choice have to match up perfectly with the elements of the stimulus. So when you get to a convoluted answer choice, start substituting the specific language of the stimulus into the generic and abstracted language of the answer choice. If something doesn't match up, eliminate it.
