June 2007, Game 3, Question 16

The segment focuses on strategies for tackling local and partial solution questions on the GRE, specifically those asking for a list of spaces in a given timeframe.
  • Local questions are identified by their initiation with 'if', and partial solution questions focus on a subset of the total timeframe.
  • A practical approach for partial solution questions involves rewriting answer choices on scratch paper to visually manage the information.
  • Applying established rules directly to the rewritten choices helps eliminate incorrect answers efficiently.
  • Specific rules mentioned include prohibitions against consecutive identical elements, the requirement for a G between two Ms, and the placement of a J only after a G.
  • The correct answer for the example provided is deduced through the application of these rules, demonstrating the effectiveness of the strategy.
