June 04 reading comp.  I completely ran out of time on the 4th passage, and the 2nd passage also gave me a headache.  All and all, I got destroyed on this one and all the progress that I thought I was making felt like it went down the drain.

Yes, it is.

The first question:

In a certain game, two of the girls wear red hats; the other children wear among themselves two blue hats and one yellow hat.  If they line up one behind the other, all facing the same direction, and the child fourth in line sees two girls and one boy, each wearing a different colored hat, which of the following must be true?

I.   The fourth child is either a boy in a blue hat or a girl in a red hat.
II.   Both boys are wearing blue hats.
III.   Only one boy is wearing a blue hat.

(A)   I only
(B)   II only
(C)   III only
(D)   I and II only
(E)   I and III only


My guess is that the Grateful Dead was in town when they wrote this game.

Answer is A.


Girl ---> Red
Girl ---> Red
Girl, Boy, Boy ----> Blue, Blue, Yellow


There are two groups. Positions 1 2 and 3. And positions 4 and 5.

Group one has 2 girls and a boy. Because of that, we know there must be one of the red capped girls in that group, and a boy and girl taking either blue or yellow, due to the exclusion of same caps in one two and three.

From there we know that the second red capped girl is in 4 or 5 teamed with a blue capped boy.


I: Yes, this must be true.
II: This doesn't have to be true due to the switching potential of yellow and blue between the second girl and boy in group 1.
III: This doesn't have to be true either. For the same reason.


Answer choice A

I wanted to add this tricky little game to the mix. It's not really hard once you get the trick, but its good to wrap up your studying I think with little things like this one that aren't really the norm.

Yeah, but it should be there just the same. I thought it was a pretty hard one.

I believe that lovely passage is in September 2006 test #50, fourth passage.  I really don't think it is all that bad but it seemed to rock the worlds of the test takers last year.

When I read it I enjoyed it but I am into science and physics and stuff.



Bless you for adding this one.  I just finished that test yesterday and missed an all time high of 8 in that RC section.  My score was a 167, lowest I've had in weeks.  That passage was killer.
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I`m working on the foundation.

Anyone have an explanation for this one?
It took me forever to finish this one and I still had too many errors.

Rosenberg and Juarezstern Are Dead?  Even the explanation of that game takes twenty minutes.  It's most easily set up as a  4-tiered ordering game split with two tiers for each character, one for the textbook and one for whether it's introductory or advanced.  The major deductions are that J1=R2, R5=J6, and R must go A-I-A-I-A-I.

Anyone have a candidate for hardest individual LR problem?  I nominate the titanium ink/Gutenberg Bible question.
