Can I assume a modifier refers to the object of a sentence

Hello everyone,

Just a quick an easy one (hopefully) – Do you know whether the following sentence is correct?

When the car was crashing into the light pole, its bumper protected the driver from being hurt.

Although I am interested in the whole structure of the sentence, I am more concern on the modifier "its". Does GMAT assume I can refer "its" to the object "the car", or does GMAT consider the modifier to be "ambiguous"?

Many thanks, :-D

Poor speed(performance) in Quant !!

Hi ! Experts and fellow Gmat aspirants. I am in an urgent need of some advice. I have been preparing for GMAT from last 2-3 months. In the beginning , I covered PS and DS from official guide. I was not satisfied with the difficulty level of the questions as I found them below 700. So I started searching for some difficult questions. I solved exercises from Jamboree’s Quant- Blue book that I found to be relatively complex , but didn’t do the exercise in the timed manner. I also download free quant stuff from Gmatclub too and solved the same. All in all I rarely did exercises under timed conditions.But now as I am trying to solve say 30 questions at stretch under timed conditions , I am fairing very poorly. Most of the time I am not able to complete the exercise and am making a lot of silly mistakes :( :wall . I know I have put ample efforts on Quant preparation :crying but still my performance is giving me nightmares. I am not sure what went wrong. :cry: Now ,I have no idea at which material/online question bank I should put my hands to. And I am not able to decide what should be my course of action now. I need to improve my speed (averaging 3.5 minute per question right now) as well as my accuracy. But here I am stuck with no idea of a right strategy. I am in desperate need of help :nopem . Recommendations/Suggestions from experts and fellow aspirants are more than welcome !!!

Thanks in advance !!

Do I have a chance at Columbia?

Heavily involved in undergraduate recruiting in both positions. Both at "prestigious" firms.

ECs: Undergrad – 2 years volunteer in tutoring/mentoring program aimed at mitigating exposure to violence by providing an alternative after-school haven. Undergrad business club– led initiative to promote recycling by educating and instilling best practices/forming habits in youth.

Dejected with Verbal – Help needed !

Hi,

So, I am not really sure how this works, but I am a very serious candidate for GMAT. My target score is to clock around 750, since I need to apply to the top 10. I see people writing V37, does that mean they are actually getting 37 questions right out of 41 in Verbal? Because, if that’s the case, I am supposedly doomed.

I have trouble with Verbal, something that peeves me, since I have clocked a 700/800 on GRE once, and 99.2 percentile in Verbal CAT (the Indian version of GMAT).

Critical Reasoning: I am following the Manhattan Strategy Guide for CR . As of now, I have completed the problem sets of Manhattan and have attempted the OG questions. My accuracy rate for CR is around 75 – 80%. So, is it a good accuracy rate? I would love to take it up to 90%, if not 100, so well, any suggestions?

Sentence Correction: I followed the SC Grail for SC and I am right now, working on the Manhattan strategy guide. My SC accuracy rate is a steadfast 70%, which according to me is pretty low. A friend of mine, wrote the GMAT last year and got a 740. According to him, SC questions shouldn’t go wrong. Is he correct ?

RC: I am pretty much dependent on the novels and the newspaper that I read. Would start practicing this section soon.

I will write my GMAT on the 6th September and really, really want to fix these issues.

Some one please help !

Thanks,
Cornered Aspirant
