Results to GRE Questions of the Week (03/23/06-03/31/06)

Verbal:
The statement that the other senses compensate for partial loss of hearing indicates that the hearing loss is not prevented or corrected; therefore, choices (B) and (E) can be eliminated. Furthermore, the ability to compensate for hearing loss certainly does not facilitate its early treatment (D) or early discovery (A). It is reasonable, however, that early detection of hearing loss is complicated by the ability to compensate for it. The best answer is (C).

Math:
Since Minnesota produced 2/3 and Michigan produced 1/6 of all the iron ore produced in the United States, the two states together produced 5/6 of the iron ore. Therefore, the 18 million tons produced by the rest of the United States was 1/6 of the total production. Thus the total United States production was 6 ยท 18 = 108 million tons, and Minnesota produced 2/3 (108) = 72 million tons. The best answer is (D).
