that, because of its brightness and intensity, the color we call “fire engine
red” is especially likely to induce anxiety and tension in many people.
Because of this finding, many fire departments are planning to repaint their
red trucks with cooler, more muted colors like beige and light yellow.
Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the rationale of
the fire departments that plan to repaint their trucks?
(A) Beige and light yellow paints cannot effectively cover a darker red paint.
(B) The cost of repainting existing fire trucks would exceed the budgets of
most fire departments
(C) The reaction to the color red comes not from an association of the color
with fire trucks, but rather from some property of the color itself.
(D) It is undesirable to reduce anxiety and tension when in an emergency
(E) People will have trouble identifying fire trucks if they are not painted
This sequence game asks you to place three theater critics (K, L, M) and four
playwrights (Q, R, S, T) around a circular table with ten chairs. Create a
master sketch (this placement of numbers is one possibility-your sketch might
Incorporate the rules into your sketch. Rule 1 states that a critic can‟t be
seated immediately next to a playwright. That implies the opposite: A
playwright cannot be seated immediately next to a critic. Rule 2 says that K is
two seats to Q‟s left. Rule 3 says that R is immediately right of S, who is
immediately right of T, so somewhere there‟s the grouping T, S, R. For our
sketch, place Q in Seat 1 since Rule 2 provides concrete inFORMation about Q
and K‟s relationship. From Rule 1 we see that Seat 10 must always be empty:
1. Since the question is worded all of the following MUST be true except, you
may see that there are at least four deductions (the four incorrect choices)
you can arrive at given the question‟s inFORMation and your knowledge of the
game‟s rules. Using the sketch in the game overview, if S is three places to
Q‟s right, then S is in Seat 4, T is in Seat 3, and R is in Seat 5. That seats
all the playwrights. Rule 1 keeps Seats 2, 6, and 10 empty-in this case a
critic can‟t sit in any of them, eliminating (A), (C), and (E). L and M can
only sit in Seats 7 and 8, in either order. K is in Seat 9, and T is in Seat 3,
meaning they are 4 places apart, ruling out (D) and leaving (B)-Either L or M
is seated on K‟s immediate left, so (B) need not be true.
2. Since the question is worded which of the following is NOT possible, you
may see that there are at least four deductions (the four incorrect choices)
you can arrive at given the question‟s inFORMation and your knowledge of the
game‟s rules. If S is two places to Q‟s right, then S is in Seat 3, T is in
Seat 2, and R is in Seat 4. Rule 1 keeps Seats 5 and 10 empty. Seat 5 is four
spaces to the left of K, so (D) is impossible and therefore correct. L and M
can be in Seats 6, 7, or 8, in any order, so (A), (B), (C), and (E) all can be
3. The fastest way to solve this question is to use previous work. As we saw
in Question 1, a playwright can sit four spaces to Q‟s right, or in Seat 5, so
(C) can be true. As for the others: P can sit on Q‟s immediate right (Seat 2),
since both are playwrights, so eliminate (A). P, a playwright, can‟t sit
immediately next to L, a critic, so (B) is out. P can‟t sit five spaces to Q‟
s right, or in Seat 6: R, S, and T must sit somewhere between Seats 2-5,
leaving only Seats 7 and 8 for L and M, but that violates Rule 1-a critic is
immediately next to P, a playwright, so (D) is impossible. (E) describes the
same chair as (D), only from Q‟s left, so (E) is also false.
4. If the Committee won't consider any proposal for more than $50,000, then
(E) a proposal for more than $50,000 won't be considered, even if it's received
before the May 31 deadline.
(A)(B)Which grants are actually approved is not addressed.
(C)Just because the Committee doesn't consider proposals for more than $50,000
doesn't mean that it considers all proposals for less than $50,000.
(D)We don't know what happens to proposals received after May 31.
5. A single, specific example (the Acme Packaging Company) is used to make a
large generalization (all nascent businesses benefited from WWII). To make this
connection, the author must assume that (D) Acme's growth rate is
representative of other nascent companies after WWII.
(A)The author needn't assume anything about the desirability of growth.
(B)The annual profit isn't important; it's the change over the course of the
war that is.
(C)Too broad. The author is concerned only with nascent businesses.
(E)The passage only addresses nascent companies, not established ones.
6. logical criticism of the argument must emphasize the weakness of the
evidence: the interpretation of the study itself. Specifically, the study
doesn't indicate that the disease is transmitted interpersonally as it claims.
In multiple-person households where more than one person has the disease, it's
possible that these people are related to each other. If this is the case, then
the disease could have been transmitted genetically. The study isn't clear on
this point. The author hasn't considered family relationships among household
(A)The flaw is in the assumption underlying the whole argument, not in one
(C)Until more is known about multiple-person households, it makes no difference
what the overall incidence of the disease is.
(D)Ignores the issue of how psoriasis is transmitted and how it can be
(E)The direction of future study is beyond the scope.
In this game, there are patients with one of seven communicative diseases (F,
G, H, I, J, K, L). If put in the same room, certain patients with these
diseases will infect other patients. This game doesn‟t lend itself to a master
sketch, but shorthanding the rules might help. Rule 1 says a patient with H
infects a patient with L. So jot down H L. Rule 2 states that a K patient
infects F or G patients: K F, K G. Rule 3 says L infects K, G, or F: L K, L
G, L F. Rule 4 says an H and I together infect either a male K or an F: H + I
male K, H + I F. Notice that patients with F are infected by more diseases
than any other patients.
7. The most straightforward way to solve this question is to try each choice,
one by one. If L is added to the room with F, I, and J, then L infects F (Rule
3), so (A) is out. If H is added to the same room, H and I together infect F
(Rule 4), eliminating (B). (E) can also be eliminated-there is no distinction
for male patients with Disease H. If K is added, then K infects F, eliminating
(D) and leaving (C)-G can be added without infecting any other patient.
8. You are told that one room contains patients with H, F, and G. Another room
contains patients with I, and J, and a male with K. If (A), I and G switch,
then male K infects G, so (A) is wrong. Switch H and J, (B), and H and I infect
the male K (Rule 4). If (C), K and G switch, K infects F (Rule 2). Switch J and
G, (D), and violate Rule 2: K infects G. This leaves (E): H and I can be
switched without any new infections.
9. The fastest way to solve this question is to try the choices, one by one.
If (A), a patient with Disease L, enters a room with H, male K, and J, more
than one infection results: H infects L (Rule 1) and L infects K. So (A) is
correct. Once you have the correct answer you don‟t need to go on, but for the
sake of completeness: (E) can be eliminated. (B): only one infection-H and I
infect male K. (C): only one-K infects G. (D): only one-K infects F.
In this sequence game, arrange nine radio programs (five news, two jazz, and
two educational) into order, one program per slot. Create a master sketch that
consists of nine dashes laid out from left to right and numbered 1 to 9.
Incorporate the rules in your sketch. Abbreviate the programs as N for news, J
for jazz, and E for educational. Rule 1 states that one educational program is
seventh, so place an E in slot 7. Rule 2 says the two educational programs can‟
t be consecutive. From this we can deduce that an educational program can‟t be
sixth or eighth. Stated positively, only news or jazz programs can be sixth or
eighth. Rule 3 establishes the identity of the listener as Johnson. Your sketch
should look something like this:
10. Start with what you know. One educational program is seventh, and the
other educational program can‟t be sixth or eighth. You‟re left with one
educational program, two jazz programs, and five news programs to fill into
eight remaining slots. There must be some way to further restrict what can be
fourth through ninth, since a certain selection of programs for the first three
slots spells out the remaining six slots. Notice that there are five unknown
slots between 4 and 9 (you know that slot 7 is educational), and there are five
news programs total. If the two jazz programs and the other educational program
are first, second, and third, in whatever order, then the five remaining slots
must all be the five news programs. (E), fourth, fifth, sixth, eighth, and
ninth, is correct.
