PrepTest 73, Logical Reasoning 2, Question 5

Mastering conclusion questions on the GRE involves identifying the core assertion that the rest of the argument aims to support, typically encapsulated in a pivotal sentence.
  • Conclusion questions require pinpointing the argument's main assertion.
  • The conclusion can often be found at the end of the first sentence, serving as the foundation for subsequent evidence and counterarguments.
  • Identifying the conclusion involves distinguishing it from evidence, counter-evidence, and unrelated statements.
  • The correct answer choice for a conclusion question is usually a direct restatement or closely paraphrases the identified conclusion.
  • Incorrect answer choices may represent pieces of evidence, counter-evidence, or unrelated assertions not directly supporting the conclusion.
