Clear A.


Yes. A. 'that' is used to introduce an essential modifier for the noun Africa. This modifier is essential as it expressed a certain feeling for Africa. It's not just Africa, but a place which represented freedom for the Blacks.

A Answer [#permalink] New post 30 May 2005, 00:59
A appears to be a better choices among the others as the modifiers in other cases are very vague.

My AC is A.

Eliminate AC C, D becuase of "was"....Africa was...?? change of tense changes the meaning.

B, changes Africa to "African" Land....Changes a noun with an appostive to an adjective "African".

E, "Africa" is just just dangling. Doesnt make sense. My AC is A

advocate needs that. advocate that is the idiom.

Eliminates D and E

Among A/B/C

C : uses 2 which to refer to Africa. Thats pretty weird.

(C) that some Blacks return to Africa [highlight]which[/highlight]was the land [highlight]which[/highlight]symbolized the possibility of freedom to him

B : is a change of meaning (African land is not the same as Africa)
A : is awkward. But no choice left.

hence A.
