## DS Elimination Method

Summary

The essence of tackling data sufficiency problems on the GRE involves a strategic approach centered around eliminating answers based on the sufficiency of provided statements.

- Memorizing the five standard answer choices is crucial for data sufficiency success, with a division between ALONE statements (A, B, D) and TOGETHER statements (C, E).
- The initial step involves evaluating each statement independently to determine if it alone suffices to answer the prompt question, which can lead to eliminating certain answer choices immediately.
- If neither statement is sufficient alone, they must be considered together, which could lead to choosing answer C or E.
- Solution behavior, or guessing after strategically eliminating some answer choices, can be advantageous compared to random guessing.
- Understanding the sufficiency of statements allows for strategic elimination of incorrect answers, narrowing down the possibilities and enhancing the chances of selecting the correct answer.
