PT 57 Sec3 Q14 - NonFat Labels

Postby Quick Silver » Tue Nov 18, 2014 11:06 am

Why does this question trip me up?

I go so caught up in the relatively or seemingly complex diagramming that I overlooked the question stem I read initially (violates) and screwed it up.

I find myself doing that once in a while - I read the Q Stem first, then go to the stimulus, get caught up in that, then screw it up because I lose sight of the the Question Stem....

Is it just a matter of quickly re-reading the stem - since I have to focus on applying info from the Stimulus it anyway?

BTW - what's the question type for this Question "violates the rule..."

Thanks in advance!

1. Slow your roll! Well, just a little bit. I promise you have time to read the question (think about it this way: if you'd read the question as it was written the first time through, how much faster would the whole problem have gone?).

2. I call it an Inference question—the answer will be something that we can prove to be false based on the rules set forth in the passage.

Hope that helps!
