3. ## Usage of "That" in the beginning of a sentence

Can someone explain when it is ok to use a sentence that begins with "that" and when it is wrong?
4. ## Gmat prep rc

Thanks Singalong and Dave. That clarifies.
5. ## Parabola

Is it C? My assumptions, ( attached figure was not clear), A=0, G=E=C , D =F Just to make things easier, I started with statement two Y = X^2... Distance between 0,B and C, C^2 is SQRT{ C^2 + ( C^2 -B) ^ 2 } and distance between C,D and E,F is C-E ( where E is negative ). I am not able to deduce it any further. So I will move on to statement 1. Statement 1 alone is not sufficient. After I fit in values such as 2,4 & 3,9 for the parabola. I guess I need statement 1 & 2 to solve it. I DID NOT TRY FITTING IN DECIMAL VALUES. Let me know if I am right or wrong.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]6117[/ATTACH] I am confused between C & D. Looks very close to me. Please advice.
7. ## Ps set 11 q 7

Hey 800, You have presupposed that x is negative, i.e -x and you are calculation leads to x, which is positive in sign. Hence you need -(-x ).... Even simpler, lets assume, x to be -y , you have SQRT ( -(-y) . | -y | ) = SQRT (y^2 ) = Y.... But what is y ??? -x..... Hence answer is A. Thanks Brent for the explanation.
8. ## Ps set 11 q 7

If x 1) -x 2) -1 3) 1 4) x 5) sqrt(x)
9. ## Kaplan - Multi Party Initiative

Thanks Garima... I guess I gave into the pressure of the test and did not stress on the highlighted lines.
10. ## Integers problem

If W & C are integers, is W > 0? 1) W+C > 50 2) C>48
11. ## Inequality question

IF X & Y are positive, is 3X > 7Y ? 1) X > Y + 4 2) -5X
12. ## Montalia Shopping Carts

Thanks Brent.... I guess, I extrapolated C. Thought that closing of some shops increased the sales of those using shopping carts. Hence the closure of shops increased sales and not the usage of shopping carts. Am I extrapolating too much? I guess I probably did this because A was not sounding great.
13. ## Montalia Shopping Carts

Many large department stores in Montalia now provide shopping carts for their customers. Since customers using shopping carts tend to buy more than those without shopping carts, most of these stores are experiencing strong sales growth, while most other department stores are not. Therefore, in order to boost sales, managers of Jerrod’s, Montalia’s premier department store, are planning to purchase shopping carts and make them available to the store’s customers next month. Which of the following, if true, casts most doubt whether the managers?plan, if implemented, will achieve its goal? A. Since most customers associate shopping carts with low-quality discount stores, Jerrod’s high-quality image would likely suffer if shopping carts were introduced. B. Because the unemployment rate has declined to very low levels, Jerrod’s now has to pay significantly higher wages in order to retain its staff. C. A number of department stores that did not make shopping carts available to their customers have had to close recently due to falling profits. D. Shopping carts are not very expensive, but they generally need to be replaced every few years. E. Stores that make shopping carts available to their customers usually have to hire people to retrieve the carts from parking areas. Please explain your answer choices.
14. ## Kaplan - Multi Party Initiative

Multi-party initiatives are becoming increasingly popular among the members of the parliament of Country W. Although legislation proposed under the auspices of more than one party may not adhere as strictly to the agenda of each of the parties involved as legislation proposed by only one party, the political backing of the voting blocs represented by the cooperating parties make such proposals more likely to pass than proposals that come from a single faction alone. The benefit of multi-party initiatives is that legislation important to the general welfare of Country W that might otherwise have foundered in inter-party disagreements can effectively be enacted. Which of the following statements by a minister of Party C in the government of Country W is most consistent with the beliefs of an individual political party in the situation described above? A) "Our party would rather compromise on some of our issues and also see other parties compromise on their issues than run the risk of not having legislation that we propose pass." B) "Our party would rather give up a few minor points of ideology than risk having the issues important to our constituents not be addressed as a result of the government's inability to pass any new laws. " C) "Our party would rather participate in an environment that fosters inter-party cooperation than persist in constant conflict with other parties." D) "Our party would rather have other parties join in support of our legislation than join in supporting the proposals of other parties." E) "Our party would rather have our proposals passed because they represent what is best for the welfare of our country than to become engaged in the agendas of other parties." OA Please help me resolve this problem
