June 2007, Logical Reasoning 1, Question 16

The content provides an in-depth analysis of how to approach a 'point at issue' question on the GRE, focusing on discerning disagreements between two perspectives based on their explicit statements.
  • Identify disagreements between two parties based solely on their explicit statements, not on inferred or implied positions.
  • Break down the information into usable chunks to understand each party's stance on the issue.
  • Taylor introduces research findings and expresses skepticism towards mathematically precise claims in science.
  • Sandra acknowledges the possibility of precision in scientific results and argues against doubting science solely because of its precision.
  • The correct answer is identified by matching an option that both parties explicitly disagree on, considering their stated views on scientific precision.
