FLAW

5-10% of GMAT CR Questions
 A fairly rare CR question type

Objective

Flaw questions ask you to find the answer that best describes the logical flaw of the argument.

Example:

The moisture content of wood is measured by the weight of water as a percentage of the oven-dry weight of the wood fiber. The key to controlling decay is to control moisture. Once decay fungi are established, the minimum moisture content for decay to occur is easily propagated. Not surprisingly, if homeowners control moisture, they will prevent wood decay.

The argument is flawed primarily because the author

(A) confuses the meaning of the key term “decay”

(B) makes a broad assertion from only a limited sample of information

(C) treats a common cause of a problem as though it were the only cause of that problem

(D) unfairly describes a problem to make it easier to attack

(E) confuses the cause of the problem with the effect of the problem

Common Question Forms

Here are some of the most common ways Flaw questions are asked:

1. Which of the following, if true, most strongly indicates that the logic of the prediction above is flawed?
 2. Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
 3. The legislator’s argument is flawed because it fails to consider that
