QUESTION: The result of attempting to whip cream in a blender….
QUESTION TYPE: Must be True
- Whipping cream in a blender produces a crappy, velvety substance.
- The blender fails because it doesn’t let in enough air to whip cream effectively.
- A special attachment in the blender can help.
- But the special attachment can’t fully compensate for the air intake problem.
ANALYSIS: Must be true questions ask you to combine facts from the stimulus. To do this, you need to have a clear understanding of each fact.
Usually you can’t prephrase must be true questions. Instead, you need to load the facts in your short term memory so that you can spot which answer correctly combines two or more facts.
- There could be thousands of methods of whipping cream poorly, and maybe some don’t produce the velvety substance that comes from blenders.
- CORRECT. This combines the end of the final sentence with the second sentence. An attachment helps, but it can’t change the fact that there isn’t enough air in a blender.
- Be careful of “always”. It’s a very extreme word. This answer says that an attachment will never produce a worse result. That’s ridiculous – surely an attachment could malfunction at some point.
- A very tricky trap answer. The attachment makes things better, but maybe to make the result good you still need the same quantity of air.Suppose you need $1500 a month to meet your living expenses, or you’ll be all sad and velvety. The moral support of your friends will reduce your sadness. But to solve the problem you still need the same amount of money, $1500 worth. Moral support can’t reduce the money you need.
- We have no idea which method is the most common. Maybe most people are fools, and use blenders even though they don’t work well.
