Answer E

19. As the etched lines on computer memory chips have become thinner and the chips’ circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have vastly increased.

(A) the chips’ circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have - - - unneccesry insertion of "CHIP'S"(B) the chips’ circuits more complex, the power of both the chips and the electronic devices they drive has - - - uses HAS must use HAVE, as it is plural.
(C) the chips’ circuits are more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive has - - - HAS is wrong
(D) their circuits are more complex, the power of both the chips and the electronic devices they drive have - - - Sounds like 2 chips , as it reads, BOTH THE CHIPS.
(E) their circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have - Satisifies, HAVE (plural), adn the use of BOTH


Correct me, if my explaination is wrong

the answer is B. Here power is the subject and so it must have "has". In E, "their" is ambiguous because it is not clear whether it is the etched lines or the chips.

The answer should be (B).

"their" has no clear referent so (D) and (E) is out.

it is the "power" of "both chips and devices these chips derive" "has" increased, hence (A) and (C) is out.
