I have a question on the following 122 no: question of OG13;
A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one page writing sample that it can assess more than three hundred personality triats.
A. from a one page writing sample that it can assess
B. from a one page writing sample it has the ability of assessing
C. the ability, from a one page writing sample, of assessing
D. to be able, from a one page writing sample, to assess
E. being able to assess, from a one page writing sample,
I have reached to the correct answer through E GMAT
3 step approach.
that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one page writing sample
that it can assess more than three hundred personality triats.
Here meaning is clear that 'it' refers to "firm", but there is an ambiguity that 'it' may also refer to analysis , handwritting, one-page writing sample.1st error
: Here, i concluded that there is a pronoun error because 'it' has more than antecedent, which are ; analysis, one page writing sample and firm -- all can be logically fit and can distort the meaning of sentence. 2nd error
: This question looks to be having one another error i.e subjunctive clause claim... that, it was not clear to me that between claims and that, .. can this phrase fit (from a one page writing sample)..
Also in my understanding 'claim' could be a word which can be used both with 'that' and with 'to'
In POE, B, C & E choices were eliminated due to neither 'to' nor 'that' is mentioned.
At the end only two choices left and that are A&D.
Here A has pronoun error and sense of claims from is not understood, as phrase 'from a one page writing sample' after claim is making unclear the intended meaning.
So, D is the answer.. Claims to assess ('to' is used and pronoun is eliminated).
In OG explanation, pronoun error is not at all discussed in A. Can you please confirm on my approach and detection of pronoun error.
Many times i get confuse from pronoun errors, so want to be fully confirmed,
