*Choice (E) is incorrect because the information given is focuses more on the aye-aye itself than on the culture of Madagascar.Answer: (A) and (B) Choices (A) and (B) can both be inferred from the passage. The classification of the aye-aye changes, which demonstrates that such classifications are not absolute.Called by some the “island that time forgot,” Madagascar is home to a vast array of unique, exotic creatures. First described by western science in 1782, it was initially categorized as a member of the order Rodentia.*

Choice (B) is incorrect because the passage mentions evolution only briefly, at the end. Choice (C) is incorrect because the style of the passage is too advanced for young students.

Choice (D) is incorrect because the passage mentions religion only as it relates to the fate of the aye-aye.

There are three answer choices per blank, or five answer choices if there is a single blank.

There is a single correct answer, consisting of one choice for each blank.

Next, use the average formula to find the value of x: In this formula, 71 is the average, 70x 75 is the total, and there are x 1 days. If 120 dogs were sold in March, then 60 cats were sold that month. The total number of dogs and cats sold during those two months is 600, which is too large, so eliminate (C), (D), and (E). If there were 100 dogs sold in March, then 50 cats were sold; in April, 200 dogs were sold along with 150 cats.

Substituting this information into the formula gives: To solve, cross-multiply to get 71x 71 = 70x 75. The correct answer is (B) because 100 50 200 150 = 500. ▵ Answer: (A), (C), (D) and (E) Plug the information given into the formula for the area of a triangle to learn more about the relationship between x and y: The product of x and y is 216, so x needs to be a factor of 216.

Note: On the GRE you'll be given an on-screen calculator with the five basic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and square root, plus a decimal function and positive/negative feature.

Don't use anything fancier when you tackle this GRE math practice!

If the average high temperature for x days is 70 degrees, then the sum of those x high temperatures is 70x. If the total number of pets the store sold in March and April combined was 500, how many dogs did the store sell in March?

The sum of the high temperatures, including the additional day that has a temperature of 75 degrees is, therefore, 70x 75. Answer: (B) 100 Plug In the Answers, starting with the middle choice.
