GRE Analytical Writing
Issue Task
As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the
ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree
or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the
position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you
should consider ways in which the statement might or might not
hold true and explain how these considerations shape your
position.
GRE Analytical Writing
Argument Task
The following appeared as part of a letter to the editor of a scientific journal.
"A recent study of eighteen rhesus monkeys provides clues as to the effects of birth order on
an individual's levels of stimulation. The study showed that in stimulating situations (such as
an encounter with an unfamiliar monkey), firstborn infant monkeys produce up to twice as
much of the hormone cortisol, which primes the body for increased activity levels, as do their
younger siblings. Firstborn humans also produce relatively high levels of cortisol in
stimulating situations (such as the return of a parent after an absence). The study also found
that during pregnancy, first-time mother monkeys had higher levels of cortisol than did those
who had had several offspring.“

Write a response in which you discuss one or more alternative explanations that could rival
the proposed explanation and explain how your explanation(s) can plausibly account for the
facts presented in the argument.
