2语言与思维的关系导论


❶ GMAT考试对语言的要求有多高?

 

GMAT考试的核心能力是什么?一直以来培训界莫衷于是。GMAC(GMAT出题方)给出的明确说法是不以语言为考点,可明明很多题假如翻译成中文的话,我们的正确率会大大提高。说是不考商科背景知识吧,可为什么很多题目里面的经济学术语,复杂到即使是商科专业的学生都看得目瞪口呆?所以我遇到的初学者最爱问一个问题,就是:老师,要不要背单词?

 

举两个例子:

  

[0.1]

手术C只能让75%H病患者受益,结论:对于剩下那25%不受益的病人来说,大夫劝告他们接受如此昂贵手术的原因,一定是出于一己私利而不是治病救人。

 以下哪个选项可以质疑这个结论?

 

大夫对受益的和不受益的病人都会事先嘱咐手术的风险。

手术前是无法从医学角度区分受益与不受益病人的。

  • Yeasts capable of leavening bread are widespread, and in the many centuries during which the ancient Egyptians made only unleavened bread, such yeasts must frequently have been mixed into bread doughs accidentally. The Egyptians, however, did not discover leavened bread until about 3000 B.C. That discovery roughly coincided with the introduction of a wheat variety that was preferable to previous varieties because its edible kernel could be removed from the husk without first toasting the grain.

    Which of the following, if true, provides the strongest evidence that the two developments were causally related?
    A) Even after the ancient Egyptians discovered leavened bread and the techniques for reliably producing it were well known, unleavened bread continued to be widely consumed.
    B) Only when the Egyptians stopped the practice of toasting grain were their stone-lined grain-toasting pits available for baking bread.
    C) Heating a wheat kernel destroys its gluten, a protein that must be present in order for yeast to leaven bread dough.
    D) The new variety of wheat, which had a more delicate flavor because it was not toasted, was reserved for the consumption of high officials when it first began to be grown.
    E) Because the husk of the new variety of wheat was more easily removed, flour made from it required less effort to produce.
