I've ran out of questions on OG12 and the Verbal review and was considering taking up the 1000SC. I've read about the ambiguity of the 1000SC answer explanations on a lot of posts and hence wanted to know whether this a reliable source of practice?

Also, who compiled this list or whats the source of this SC collection?

I just came across this thread and I'm confused where the 1000 SC questions are. Is it something we're supposed to buy?

Hi

Please can someone can explain why the answer for Qsn 220 is A instead of D.

220. Constance Horner, chief of the United States government’s personnel agency, has recommended that the use of any dangerous or illegal drug in the five years prior to application for a job be grounds for not hiring an applicant.
(A) the use of any dangerous or illegal drug in the five years prior to application for a job be grounds for not hiring an applicant
(B) any dangerous or illegal drug, if used in the five years prior to applying for a job, should be grounds not to hire the applicant
(C) an applicant’s use of any dangerous or illegal drug in the five years prior to application for a job be grounds not to hire them
(D) an applicant’s use of any dangerous or illegal drug in the five years prior to applying for a job are grounds that they not be hired
(E) for five years prior to applying for a job, an applicant’s use of any dangerous or illegal drug be grounds for not hiring them

Thanks

Q 147 out of 1000 SC

At a recent session, the French government has decided that Paris needs a second, larger opera house to complement the famous Paris Opera.

(A) has decided that Paris needs
(B) decided that Paris needs
(C) has decided that Paris will need
(D) decided that Paris has a need of
(E) has decided that Paris needed

I understand that E is incorrect because has decided is the wrong verb form to use in this case, but why is B correct? "Decided" is a reporting verb, so doesn't reporting verb move all other verbs "back in time" - aka shouldn't it be "decided that Paris needed"? Why does needs stay in present form used after a reporting verb.

Thanks!!
Sorry couldn't figure out how to add to the main page with all the links...
