PrepTest 73, Game 1, Question 5

The content provides a strategic approach to tackling partial solution questions on the GRE, emphasizing the importance of leveraging previous work and applying rules methodically to identify correct answers.
  • Partial solution questions ask for a list of elements in specific positions, such as first and second places in this context.
  • Developing an understanding of the game and using previous work is crucial for answering these types of questions effectively.
  • One strategy involves revisiting sketches from previous questions to find potential answers, as demonstrated with question seven's sketch indicating W and S as viable options.
  • Another approach is to systematically apply the game's rules to each answer choice, eliminating those that violate the rules, thereby narrowing down to the correct answer.
  • The process of elimination based on rule application is a key technique, as illustrated by the elimination of answer choices that do not comply with the established rules regarding the positions of S, T, W, R, and V.
