June 2007, Logical Reasoning 2, Question 12

The essence of tackling conclusion questions on the GRE involves identifying the argument's conclusion, which is often nestled within the question's structure and requires careful analysis of the presented information.
  • Conclusion questions ask you to pinpoint the argument's conclusion, which may not always be at the end but could be found in the middle of the argument.
  • Identifying the conclusion requires distinguishing it from the setup information and the evidence provided to support the argument.
  • The conclusion is more likely about the overall likelihood or judgment made in the argument, rather than specific details or evidence.
  • Answer choices may rephrase the conclusion in various ways, making it essential to understand the argument's core message to select the correct conclusion.
  • Incorrect answer choices may include setup information, evidence, or conditional statements that differ from the argument's actual conclusion.
