June 2007, Passage 3, Question 20

The essence of tackling detailed questions on the GRE involves identifying explicit information within the passage that directly answers the query.
  • Detailed questions are recognizable by prompts asking for specific information cited in the passage.
  • The strategy for answering involves locating the exact portion of the text where the topic is discussed.
  • Answer choices must be evaluated based on their direct mention or implication in the passage.
  • Elimination of answer choices is based on their absence in the passage or irrelevance to the queried detail.
  • The correct answer is the one that is explicitly stated in the passage, aligning with the query's focus.
