Always consider them separately.</li>\n<li>Do not bring your own knowledge to the question. Use only the passage provided.</li>\n<li>Remember that the argument presented is likely to be weak or flawed.</li>\n<li>Most critical reasoning questions will ask you to strengthen or weaken the author’s logic.

Almost every question has multiple parts. To get credit for answering a question correctly, you have to answer <em>all</em> of its parts correctly. You don’t receive partial credit for getting one part of the question correct. Unlike the verbal and quantitative reasoning sections, the IR section isn’t computer adaptive. So, the order in which you receive questions is preordained and not based on your performance.\r\n\r\nYour IR score is based on your answers to four types of questions. On average, you can expect to come across about three of each question type on the GMAT, but the actual number of questions of each type and the order in which they appear may vary. So, count on seeing at least a couple of each of these four question types crop up on your test:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Table analysis:</strong> This three-part IR question offers you a spreadsheet of values that you can order in different ways by clicking the heading of each column. You use the data to make judgments about three pieces of information; each of your judgments has to be correct to get credit for the question.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Two-part analysis:</strong> Based on a short, written explanation of a phenomenon, situation, or mathematical problem, you come up with the proper assertions or mathematical expressions that meet the two interrelated criteria presented in the question.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Graphics interpretation:</strong> A graph or chart gives you all the data you need to complete the two missing pieces of information in one or two statements. You choose from a pull-down menu of several answer options to record your answers.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Multi-source reasoning:</strong> These properly named questions present you with several sources of information, such as short passages, graphs and charts, and business documents, from which you draw logical conclusions to answer questions in either of two formats: standard five-answer multiple-choice questions and three-part questions that ask you to evaluate statements.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nTo assist you with the mathematical computations you may need to make for some of the IR questions, the GMAT software provides you with a simple calculator. Whenever you need it, you click the box labeled <em>Calculator</em> and something that looks like the following figure appears. You select its functions by using your mouse. Don’t get too attached to it, though; the calculator is available only for IR questions, so you won’t be able to use it in the quantitative reasoning section.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283497\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"415\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283497\" src=\"//www.coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/gmat-calculator.jpg\" alt=\"GMAT calculator\" width=\"415\" height=\"600\" /> The GMAT calculator[/caption]\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">Because using a computer calculator can be awkward, you’ll likely answer most IR questions more quickly by using estimation or working out calculations by hand on your noteboard.

Based on your performance in the IR section, your raw score is converted to a scaled score that ranges in whole numbers from 1 to 8 and is recorded separately from all the other scores.\r\n\r\nMBA programs decide how they use your IR score and may choose to disregard it altogether. So, your IR score is unlikely to make much of an impression unless it’s unusually low, in the 1-to-3 score range, or really high, such as the rare 7 or 8. A midrange score of 4, 5, or 6 likely won’t significantly hurt or help your chances of admission.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >How to make the most of your time on the IR section</h2>\r\nIf you’ve already calculated that answering 12 questions in 30 minutes gives you 2.5 minutes to answer each question, you may be celebrating the fact that that gives you even more time per question than you have for the quantitative and verbal reasoning sections. Don’t get too excited just yet. Almost every IR question has multiple parts, and you have to answer all parts of the question correctly to be credited with a correct answer.\r\n\r\nWhen you consider the average number of sub-questions contained within each of those 12 questions, the actual number of IR answers you have to come up with in 30 minutes may be as high as 30. Therefore, you have to use your time wisely as you move through the section.\r\n<p class=\"article-tips tip\">You’ll likely feel the time crunch more fiercely in this section than the others.

Hide the timer on the computer by clicking on it. After you answer about three questions, reveal the timer by clicking on it again. It counts down from 30 minutes, so if you’re at 22 minutes, you’re cruising comfortably. If you’re at 21 or fewer, you may need to make some more calculated guesses to move through the section at a successful pace.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Know when to move on.</strong> Discipline yourself to submit your best stab at an answer if you find yourself spending more than several minutes on any one question. You don’t want to sacrifice getting to an easy, less-time-consuming question because you’ve worked too long on a harder question. You can’t go back and revisit questions after you submitted your answers, so this practice may be difficult for you, especially if you tenaciously seek perfection. Take a deep breath, mark your best guess, and move on to what lies ahead.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Write stuff down.</strong> Don’t be afraid to spend a little time upfront analyzing the loads of data in some IR questions. Unless you’re someone who can juggle a lot of details in your head, you should write on your noteboard as you think. A little note-taking may save you from reading information over again, which is a real time waster.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Whisper to yourself.</strong> Studies show that processing information is easier if you speak out loud.

Choice (D) does the best job of matching the pronoun and making it clear (by the addition of the phrase <em>nor anyone else</em>) that the sentence is meant to show that no one, including Bell, foresaw how his invention would change the world.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>The correct answer is B.</strong>Liu felt that the exhaust fan in the first examination room was <u>more effective than the exhaust fan in the second examination room</u>.\r\n\r\nOf the choices provided, Choice (B) is the best. It clarifies that the comparison is between the exhaust fans in two examining rooms, whereas the original leaves it unclear as to what <em>the second</em> is referring to.</li>\r\n</ol>","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":11243,"name":"Sandra Luna McCune","slug":"sandra-luna-mccune","description":" <p><b>Sandra Luna McCune, PhD,</b> is professor emeritus and a former Regents professor at Stephen F.

You may not have encountered the coordinate plane in a while (it isn’t something most people deal with in everyday life), so take just a minute to refresh your memory about a few relevant terms that may pop up on the GMAT. Although you won’t be asked to define the terms related to the coordinate plane, knowing what they mean is absolutely essential to answering GMAT math questions.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Line dancing: Understanding coordinate geometry</h2>\r\nBefore you get too engrossed in the study of coordinate <a href=\"//www.coursofppt.com/test-prep/gmat/gmat-quantitative-data-sufficiency-practice-geometry/\">geometry</a>, ground yourself with an understanding of these essential terms:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Coordinate plane:</strong> The coordinate plane is a perfectly flat surface where points can be identified by their positions, using ordered pairs of numbers. These pairs of numbers represent the points’ distances from an origin on perpendicular axes. The coordinate of any particular point is the set of numbers that identifies the location of the point, such as (3, 4) or (<em>x, y</em>).</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>x-</em>axis:</strong> The <em>x-</em>axis is the horizontal axis (number line) on a coordinate plane. The values start at the origin, which has a value of 0. Numbers increase in value to the right of the origin and decrease in value to the left. The <em>x</em> value of a point’s coordinate is listed first in its ordered pair.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>y-</em>axis:</strong> The <em>y-</em>axis is the vertical axis (number line) on a coordinate plane. Its values start at the origin, which has a value of 0. Numbers increase in value going up from the origin and decrease in value going down. The <em>y</em> value of a point’s coordinate is listed second in its ordered pair.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Origin:</strong> The origin is the point (0, 0) on the coordinate plane. It’s where the <em>x-</em> and <em>y-</em>axes intersect.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Ordered pair:</strong> Also known as a <em>coordinate pair,</em> this duo is the set of two values that expresses the distance a point lies from the origin. The horizontal (<em>x</em>) coordinate is always listed first, and the vertical (<em>y</em>) coordinate is listed second.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>x-</em>intercept:</strong> The value of <em>x</em> where a line, curve, or some other function crosses the <em>x-</em> The value of <em>y</em> is 0 at the <em>x-</em>intercept. The <em>x-</em>intercept is often the <em>solution</em> or <em>root</em> of an equation.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>y-</em>intercept:</strong> The value of <em>y</em> where a line, curve, or some other function crosses the <em>y-</em> The value of <em>x</em> is 0 at the <em>y-</em>intercept.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Slope:</strong> <em>Slope</em> measures how steep a line is and is commonly referred to as <em>the rise over the run.</em></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >What’s the point? Finding the coordinates</h2>\r\nYou can identify any point on the coordinate plane by its coordinates, which designate the point’s location along the <em>x-</em> and <em>y-</em>axes. For example, the ordered pair (2, 3) has a coordinate point located two units to the right of the origin along the horizontal (<em>x</em>) number line and three units up on the vertical (<em>y</em>) number line. In the figure, point A is at (2, 3). The x-coordinate appears first, and the y-coordinate shows up second. Pretty simple so far, huh?\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_283514\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"556\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-283514\" src=\"//www.coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/gmat-coordinate-plane.jpg\" alt=\"Points on the coordinate plane.\" width=\"556\" height=\"510\" /> Points on the coordinate plane[/caption]\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >On all fours: Identifying quadrants</h2>\r\nThe intersection of the x- and y-axes forms four quadrants on the coordinate plane, which just so happen to be named Quadrants I, II, III, and IV.

You may not have encountered the coordinate plane in a while (it isn’t something most people deal with in everyday life), so take just a minute to refresh your memory about a few relevant terms that may pop up on the GMAT. Although you won’t be asked to define the terms related to the coordinate plane, knowing what they mean is absolutely essential to answering GMAT math questions.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Line dancing: Understanding coordinate geometry</h2>\r\nBefore you get too engrossed in the study of coordinate <a href=\"//www.coursofppt.com/test-prep/gmat/gmat-quantitative-data-sufficiency-practice-geometry/\">geometry</a>, ground yourself with an understanding of these essential terms:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li><strong>Coordinate plane:</strong> The coordinate plane is a perfectly flat surface where points can be identified by their positions, using ordered pairs of numbers. These pairs of numbers represent the points’ distances from an origin on perpendicular axes. The coordinate of any particular point is the set of numbers that identifies the location of the point, such as (3, 4) or (<em>x, y</em>).</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>x-</em>axis:</strong> The <em>x-</em>axis is the horizontal axis (number line) on a coordinate plane. The values start at the origin, which has a value of 0. Numbers increase in value to the right of the origin and decrease in value to the left. The <em>x</em> value of a point’s coordinate is listed first in its ordered pair.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>y-</em>axis:</strong> The <em>y-</em>axis is the vertical axis (number line) on a coordinate plane. Its values start at the origin, which has a value of 0. Numbers increase in value going up from the origin and decrease in value going down. The <em>y</em> value of a point’s coordinate is listed second in its ordered pair.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Origin:</strong> The origin is the point (0, 0) on the coordinate plane. It’s where the <em>x-</em> and <em>y-</em>axes intersect.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Ordered pair:</strong> Also known as a <em>coordinate pair,</em> this duo is the set of two values that expresses the distance a point lies from the origin. The horizontal (<em>x</em>) coordinate is always listed first, and the vertical (<em>y</em>) coordinate is listed second.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>x-</em>intercept:</strong> The value of <em>x</em> where a line, curve, or some other function crosses the <em>x-</em> The value of <em>y</em> is 0 at the <em>x-</em>intercept. The <em>x-</em>intercept is often the <em>solution</em> or <em>root</em> of an equation.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong><em>y-</em>intercept:</strong> The value of <em>y</em> where a line, curve, or some other function crosses the <em>y-</em> The value of <em>x</em> is 0 at the <em>y-</em>intercept.</li>\r\n \t<li><strong>Slope:</strong> <em>Slope</em> measures how steep a line is and is commonly referred to as <em>the rise over the run.</em></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >What’s the point?
