Types of Independent Events on the GRE

Most likely exam problems on the GRE include independent events. Each independent event either is going to (Yes) occur or will not (No). Once being told how likely a certain event is to occur, then can calculate the likelihood of No by multiplying Yes by the odds against No.

To do this process on your own first you need to decide what type of test you will be taking and what kind of questions you want to answer. If you have an independent exam then you do not need to worry about this step, but if you have to take multiple choice/fill-in-the-blank type tests then it is important that you know ahead of time which type of test you will be taking so that you know how to evaluate your GRE examination preparation and how to determine which type of questions you need to answer and how to evaluate your score.

Once you decide what type of exam you need to answer first you will need to decide how many independent events there are to answer each. There are two types of independent events; the type I independent events and type II independent events. The former will be the easiest to answer and the latter will be more difficult. So if you are doing the test for yourself then you may as well just skip this step.

Multiple choice questions are divided into two types of independent events and these are type I and type II. When you do your GRE exam then you will be asked to do multiple choice and fill in the blank types of tests.

So how do you decide which type of question or independent event to answer for each independent event? This is the reason why the above steps are important.

When you do the multiple choice test, you need to figure out the “percentage correct” that you should expect to get on the first five questions or the five most important questions in the multiple choice section. Once you figure out how likely the answers are then multiply this number by 100. So if your answer to question one is “True” then multiply by 100 the number of correct answers on this question. On the multiple choice test you will get multiple choices.

The type II independent events will be more difficult because you will need to think harder on the multiple choices. you need to consider all the different possibilities. And that can be really hard. But with practice you can get the hang of these questions and find out how much easier the multiple choice type of test is.

There are three types of independent events in the GRE, fill in the blank, multiple choice/fill in the blank. There are some types of independent events, which are easier to answer on some types of exams than on other types.

There are also some types of independent events that are difficult to answer on the same type of exams as another. For example type I and type II multiple choices have some type of a pattern and type III multiple choices have no pattern.

There are some independent events that are easier to answer on some types of multiple choice tests than on other types of multiple choice tests. This can be true for type I and type II multiple choices and so on.

The type I multiple-choice test is basically an essay. It is a longer essay where the essay is about one subject in order to answer a multiple choice type of question. Type II multiple choice has questions that are about many different topics.

Now once you figure out how much easier to answer a type of independent event the question will be then you will know how much easier it will be to answer a multiple choice type of test. As a rule of thumb try to always answer multiple choice type of question with the type I multiple choice exam.
