The Format Of G-Matic Sentence Correction Question

The sentence correction questions are not given as a separate section in your GMAT. They are mixed with other types of questions (Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension questions) and all these questions may appear in any order.


Study the following G-matic example and the discussion that follows to understand the format

 

Example
Dolmen, a prehistoric chamber built by Megalithic man, consists of three or more huge uncut stole slabs, set edge-wise in the ground and supported a flat top stone that serves as a roof.
  • supported a flat top stone that serves
  • supporting a flat top stone serving
  • supporting a flat top stone which served
  • supported a flat top stone and serving
  • which supports a flat top-stone serving


The sentence correction question is basically a multiple choice question. You will find a part or the whole of the sentence in the question prompt underlined. The question is followed by five options, the first of which is the exact repetition of the original underlined part or the underlined sentence.


Thus, if you feel that the sentence is correct as it is, you should choose the first option. The other four options offer four revisions. If you feel that the given sentence is wrong as it is, you should decide which of the remaining four options, when substituted in the place of the underlined portion, makes the sentence correct both grammatically and stylistically. That is your answer. To mark your answer after deciding, you should click on your choice and the corresponding bubble gets darkened.


When you answer the question, the screen of the computer appears something like this.

 

Dolmen, a prehistoric chamber built by Megalithic man, consists of three or more huge uncut stone slabs, set edge-wise in the ground and supported a flat top stone that serves as a roof.
  • supported a flat top stone that serves
  • supporting a flat top stone that serves
  • supporting a flat top stone which served
  • supported a flat top stone and serving
  • which supports a flat top-stone serving


This implies that you have marked your answer. Then you need to click confirm and next on computer screen to submit your answer. Then you will be given the next questions. As we discussed in the earlier chapter, you cannot go to the next question without answering the present question.


One more important point to note is that GMAT favours all options equally. Thus, you are likely to face almost 20% of questions without any error. That is, you need to select the first option as your choice.


By the way, the answer marked in the above example is the correct answer for the question.
