PrepTest 73, Logical Reasoning 1, Question 6

The essence of tackling strengthen questions on the GRE involves identifying and supporting the assumptions underlying an argument by choosing the most appropriate answer choice.
  • Strengthen questions require understanding the argument's conclusion and evidence, then supporting its assumptions.
  • The argument's conclusion is that criticisms of the film Quirks for not being realistic are misguided.
  • The main evidence supporting this conclusion is that Quirks is funny and being funny is crucial for a comedy.
  • The correct answer choice will support the assumption that Quirks should be judged by comedy standards rather than realism.
  • Answer choice D, which states that films are successful if they succeed within their genre, best supports the argument's assumptions.
