Lesson: Generating Points for the Argument Essay

Comment on Generating Points for the Argument Essay

Hello, would you provide an example to elaborate the supply and demand flaw. Thanks!

You bet. Here's a rudimentary example of a supply and demand flaw:

Joe owns a bike rental business in Fairbanks, Alaska (a place that is VERY cold in the winter). At present, his business is open for 6 months, from April 1st to September 30. Joe concludes that, if he keeps his business open all year, his revenue will double.

The flaw here is that doubling the supply will be met with double the demand.

Does that help?


Absolutely, thanks a ton

Thanks a lot for this video. Incredibly helpfull!

Hi Brent,

Are there any more examples of AWA questions solved? Also, the list you have suggested to go through, is it just an example of questions that we may have on exam day?

The list of writing prompts at https://www.mba.com/-/media/files/mba2/the-gmat-exam/gmat-exam-format-an... is an exhaustive list of all possible writing prompts. That is, on test day, you WILL see one of the writing prompts in that list.

Here's a link to GMAT Club, where tons of students have submitted essays for feedback: https://gmatclub.com/forum/analytical-writing-assessment-awa-144/

I hope that helps.

Cheers, Brent
