Is this a 600 level or a 700 level question?

I'd say this is a 700-level question.

I answered this question in 1.5 mins and was able to read all the choices.

I suffer from the FOMO so even though I was confident that A was the right answer I wanted to make sure that others were not.

My question is that in parallel questions (as you have mentioned them being extremely rare), is there a possibility that there maybe more than 1 choices with similar structure but subtle variations?

Can I just select the answer as soon as I spot it and move on to save time as you have mentioned in this video?

Whats the confidence level in doing so?

Thank you!

If you find an answer choice that is truly parallel, then that should be the correct answer.


In the question stem, it is mentioned as "flawed reasoning". However, we are looking for the parallel reasoning. Would you please elaborate this one ?!.

This is a hybrid question since it's both a Flawed Reasoning question and a Parallel Reasoning question.
The solution/approach is the same as it would be for a Parallel Reasoning question. The only difference is that the argument here is flawed.
