GMAT Integrated Reasoning  >  Two-Part Analysis Question # 33: Pottery Characteristics  
Time 0 0 : 0 0 : 0 0

Archaeologist: Although thin-walled pottery is better able to resist the damaging effects of thermal stress resulting from being placed over a fire, such pottery is more prone to breaking during transport. We can therefore make predictions about pottery use by a group of people on the basis of a certain lifestyle characteristic of the group.

The archaeologist suggests that a certain type of prediction about a group can be made on the basis of the group having a certain type of characteristic. Indicate in the table, the possible characteristic and prediction that most strongly conform to the archaeologist's suggestion. Make only two selections, one in each column.
