PrepTest 73, Logical Reasoning 2, Question 4

The essence of tackling method of reasoning questions on the GRE involves understanding the argument's structure, identifying its conclusion and evidence, and evaluating the reasoning technique employed.
  • Method of reasoning questions require a description of how an argument is constructed and the technique used to support its conclusion.
  • Identifying the argument's conclusion and evidence is crucial; the conclusion often hinges on understanding the initial premise.
  • Arguments may employ analogies to draw parallels between seemingly disparate scenarios, illustrating a point or undermining an opposing view.
  • Evaluating answer choices demands careful consideration to accurately reflect the argument's method, avoiding traps set by similar terminology or misleading phrasings.
