PrepTest 73, Logical Reasoning 1, Question 24

The content provides an in-depth analysis of how to approach paradox questions on the GRE, using a specific question about concertgoers' responses to a survey as an example.
  • Paradox questions involve scenarios where two pieces of information seem contradictory, and the task is to find an explanation that resolves the apparent conflict.
  • The example used involves concertgoers who are dissatisfied with the current concert hall but oppose the construction of a new one, despite it offering the improvements they desire.
  • The correct answer choice offers a solution that both preserves the existing concert hall and provides a new one with the desired features, thus resolving the paradox.
  • Answer choices that focus on irrelevant groups or fail to address the core paradox are ineffective and should be eliminated.
