    Sponsored Ad:
    5. The current demand for quality in the schools
    seems to ask not for the development of
    information and active citizens, but for
    disciplined and productive workers with
    abilities that contribute to civic life only -------,
    if at all.
    (A) indirectly
    (B) politically
    (C) intellectually
    (D) sensibly
    (E) sequentially

    6. Because of its lack of theaters, the city came,
    ironically, to be viewed as an ------- theater
    town, and that reputation led entrepreneurs to
    believe that it would be ------- to build new
    theaters there.
    (A) unprofitable. .risky
    (B) untapped. .pointless
    (C) unappreciated. .difficult
    (D) unlikely. .appropriate
    (E) unimpressed. .shrewd

    5-E and 6-D is the answer, how? i guess its 5-A and 6-A(?)

    I believe that answers are the same too i.e. A and A. I would really appreciate it if someone could appraise me of the quality of the Real 19 tests, from where these questions came.

    I also agree with with A,A as the correct answers.

    Btw, Appraise is to evaluate/estimate. I think you mean apprise which means to inform

    for question 5
    here indicates supporting signal because, it says, not for the.......................but for.............. which is closely similar to not only but also.
    so the blank pposition shoul fill by a positive word that is the interaction of the two.so in my opinion A should not be the ans.

    For the question no.6 please see carefully the word ironically.Its a very important word for the total sentence.so the first blank will be the opposite of the second blank.

    unlikely means, Has little chance of being the case or coming about.
    and appropriate means,Suitable for a particular person or place or condition etc.
    so the ans should be D.

    i disagree with you skawal regarding both questions.

    is it a typo for question 5 when you say that A should NOT be the answer?

    for question 6, "ironically" does not refer to both blanks at all. It is ironical that the lack of theaters stymied further development, not that unlikely development resulted in actual development. For your answer to be correct, the sentence would have to be structured like this:-

    Because of its lack of theaters, the city came,
    to be viewed as an unlikely theater town, and ,ironically,
    that reputation led entrepreneurs to
    believe that it would be appropriate to build new
    theaters there.

    Hey,

    I just took this test myself. And I also put in A, A for those answers. I was really surprised to see D, E as the real answers from the key. I think 19 real GRE's answer key is off. I had a suspicion from test #1, but this has confirmed it.

    Does anyone else have any idea where the real answer key is? Also, what does anyone here recommend for tough verbal practice exams? Big Book? Barron's or what? Any replies would be appreciated.

    Agree with both A and A. The Official Answer seem not reliable to trust them.

    Choice (E) seems to work for question 6.For question 5, choice (D) fits well, i think.

    A,A here as well. I've been noticing some conspicuous flaws in the 19 real gre tests so take the "real" with a grain of salt...
