Must Be True Questions are extremely common. These are the typical Must Be True Questions:

• If the statements above are true, which of the following must also be true?
• Which of the following is [implied, must be true, implicit, most reasonably drawn] in the passage above?
• Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn if the statements above are true?
• Which of the following inferences (inference means the same thing as "must be true" on the test) is best supported by the statement made above? (Conclusions differ from inferences in that conclusions are the result of premises and inferences are something that must be true.)

How to tackle
"Must Be True Questions":

1. Read the stimulus and look for the argument.
2. Note that Must Be True questions may not be an argument. They may just be a series of facts. Nevertheless, try to find the argument.
