GMAT Practice Questions

Critical Reasoning

Critical Reasoning is all about logic, assumptions, and reasoning. In short, it's the part of the exam that really makes you think critically. It's the most math-like section of the verbal section because of this logic component.

You will be presented with a short paragraph of text information. Then you will see a question prompt below that. Some questions you might see include: "Which of the following, if true, most supports the author's viewpoint?"  

Or "which of the following, if true, best presents a rebuttal to the original criticism.."

Or you might see boldfaced portions of the question and get asked what role those two boldfaced portions play. Is one a conclusion and another supporting evidence? Or does one challenge a commonly held belief while the other demonstrates the opposing argument? Or is it the other way around?

All of this is in the Verbal: Critical Reasoning section. Watch out!

Take a full-length Practice Test (Beta)

Critical Reasoning test is all about logic, assumptions, and reasoning. In short, it's the part of the exam that really makes you think critically. It's the most math-like section of the verbal section because of this logic component.

You will be presented with a short paragraph of text information. Then you will see a question prompt below that. Some questions you might see include: "Which of the following, if true, most supports the author's viewpoint?"  

Or "which of the following, if true, best presents a rebuttal to the original criticism.."

Or you might see boldfaced portions of the question and get asked what role those two boldfaced portions play. Is one a conclusion and another supporting evidence? Or does one challenge a commonly held belief while the other demonstrates the opposing argument? Or is it the other way around?

All of this is in the Verbal: Critical Reasoning section. Watch out!
