How many RC should we do everyday if giving paper in month or so ?

That depends on your current RC proficiency AND your target score.

If you are a LONG way away from your desired level of RC proficiency, then you might need to do 10-20 questions per day.

If you are VERY CLOSE to your desired level of RC proficiency, then you might need to do only 2 or 3 questions per day.

would you plz tell me where to find the RC flashcards

great videos and technique

Hi Brent- I am struggling with Minorities passages. Can you help me with magazine or link which covers such topics.

Minorities - these passages are mainly about women, Native Americans, African Americans.

Thanks in advance.

Hi amolkokate,

Sorry, but I don't know of any collection of GMAT-style passages dealing with minorities. I'm not sure that would help either.

I think you'll make the most progress by reading actual GMAT passages. We have links to many such passages here (bottom of page): https://www.gmatprepnow.com/module/gmat-reading-comprehension

... and you'll find thousands more here: https://gmatclub.com/forum/reading-comprehension-rc-137/

very beautifully explained.

Thanks Vipul!!

Hi Brent,


In this RC for question 7, I do not understand why the answer is D. I see nothing in the article that tells me that managers using intuition take actions even if they are unable to articulate the reasons for that action, I only see it say, they skip the in depth analysis and move rapidly to engender a solution (this does not mean they cannot articulate the reasons for that action). I find the right answer to be B. Can you help please.

Here's question #7:

It can be inferred from the passage that “thinking/acting cycles” (line 45) in managerial practice would be likely to result in which of the following?

I. A manager analyzes a network of problems and then acts on the basis of that analysis.
II. A manager gathers data by acting and observing the effects of action.
III. A manager takes action without being able to articulate reasons for that particular action.

(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) I and II only
(D) II and III only
(E) I, II, and III

You're saying that the only statement II is correct (and statement III is not correct).

The passage includes this line "Since managers often “know” what is right BEFORE they can analyze and explain it, they frequently act first and explain later."

So, it's possible that, at the very moment when a manager ACTS on intuition, he/she might not be able to articulate his/her reasons for the decision. This is very similar to what statement III is saying.

Does that help?


Yes thanks! That’s a tough it requires reading between the lines and re-reading every line closely.
