Top Verbal Reasoning Job Test: Questions and Answers

Mars once contained the same amount of water as Earth’s Atlantic Ocean?

It is widely believed among scientists that, at some point, Mars had enough water to cover the entire planet in an ocean that would have been 330 to 4,920 feet deep, a volume approximately equivalent to half of Earth’s Atlantic Ocean. Although some of this water clearly escaped through the atmosphere, recent findings discovered that this does not account for most water loss. A research team incorporated data from various extraterrestrial missions by analyzing a plethora of cross-mission data. The team focused especially on studying the quantity of water in its different states (gaseous, liquid, and solid) on Mars over time; additionally, the team researched the chemical composition of the planet’s current atmosphere and crust, closely inspecting the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.

A) True
B) False
C) Cannot say

The correct answer is: (B) False

  • The question asks whether Mars once contained the same amount of water as Earth’s the Atlantic Ocean.
    Scan the passage for keywords like “Atlantic Ocean” or “Earth”.
  • You will see that the article states that “Mars had enough water to cover the entire planet in an ocean,” “a volume approximately equivalent to half of Earth’s the Atlantic Ocean”.
  • Mars only had half the amount of water in the Atlantic Ocean.

The team researching Mars tracked water in 3 different states?

It is widely believed among scientists that, at some point, Mars had enough water to cover the entire planet in an ocean that would have been 330 to 4,920 feet deep, a volume approximately equivalent to half of Earth’s the Atlantic Ocean. Although some of this water clearly escaped through the atmosphere, recent findings discovered that this does not account for most water loss. A research team incorporated data from various extraterrestrial missions by analyzing a plethora of cross-mission data. The team focused especially on studying the quantity of water in its different states (gaseous, liquid, and solid) on Mars over time; additionally, the team researched the chemical composition of the planet’s current atmosphere and crust, closely inspecting the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.

A) True
B) False
C) Cannot say

The correct answer is: (A) True

  • The questions ask how many different states water on Mars was tracked in.
  • To refresh your memory, quickly scan the passage for keywords such as “water”.
  • By doing so, you will see that “The team focused especially on studying the quantity of water in its different states (gaseous, liquid, and solid)”.
  • The research team studied water on Mars in its gaseous, liquid, and solid-state, which is equivalent to three.

Select the correct grammatical form of the highlighted portion of the text:

It is widely believed among scientists that, at some point, Mars had enough water to cover the entire planet in an ocean that would have been 330 to 4,920 feet deep, a volume approximately equivalent to half of Earth’s the Atlantic Ocean.  Although some of this water clearly escaped through the atmosphere, recent findings discovered that this does not account for most water loss.  A research team incorporated data from various extraterrestrial missions by analyzing a plethora of cross-mission data.  The team focused especially on studying the quantity of water in its different states (gaseous, liquid, and solid) on Mars over time; additionally, the team researched the chemical composition of the planet’s current atmosphere and crust, closely inspecting, the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.

A) No change required - it’s correct
B) atmosphere and crust closely inspecting the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.
C) atmosphere and crust, closely inspecting the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.

D) atmosphere and crust closely inspecting, the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.

The correct answer is: (A) No change required - it’s correct

  • The grammatical purpose of a comma is to make the reader pause.
  • Looking at the highlighted portion and some of the sentences before it: the team researched the chemical composition of the planet’s current atmosphere and crust, closely inspecting, the ratio of deuterium to hydrogen.
  • The comma after “crust” makes sense because it helps with the flow of the sentence. However, the comma after “inspecting” is completely unnecessary and makes the sentence awkward. Thus, it should be omitted.
