Intro to Comparisons

The content provides an in-depth exploration of comparisons in the context of the GRE exam, focusing on the identification, logical structuring, and clarity of comparisons to avoid common mistakes.
  • Comparisons involve discussing how two elements are similar or different, utilizing keywords like 'than', 'more', 'less', 'like', and 'unlike'.
  • Logical comparisons require comparing like to like, avoiding the common mistake of comparing dissimilar entities, such as a person's work to another person.
  • Ambiguity in comparisons must be avoided, ensuring clarity whether the comparison is between subjects or objects.
  • Personal pronouns in comparisons must match the compared term in case, whether subjective, objective, or possessive, to maintain grammatical correctness.
  • Understanding and correctly applying the rules of comparison can significantly impact the accuracy of sentence correction in the GRE.
