## DS Elimination Method

Summary

The key to mastering data sufficiency problems on the GRE involves understanding the answer choices, employing a strategic approach to eliminate incorrect answers, and leveraging solution behavior for educated guessing.

- Memorizing the five standard answer choices is crucial for data sufficiency success, with a division between 'Alone' (A, B, D) and 'Together' (C, E) statements.
- Initially, assess each statement alone to determine its sufficiency, which can lead to eliminating certain answer choices right away.
- If neither statement is sufficient alone, then consider the statements together to determine if they provide enough information.
- Understanding how to eliminate answers strategically allows for solution behavior, where educated guessing from the remaining options can advance your score.
- Practicing with different scenarios helps in familiarizing with the process of elimination and enhances the ability to guess strategically when necessary.
