A patient accusing a doctor of malpractice will find it difficult to prove damage if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify about proper medical procedures.
(A) if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify
(B) unless there will be another doctor to testify
(C) without another doctor’s testimony
(D) should there be no testimony from some other doctor
(E) lacking another doctor to testify



(A), (B), (D) - conditional, contradicts "will" . (C) escapes this contradiction;and is concise.

IMO-C
To my understanding "to Testify about" is incorrect.

Good explanation by egoistwlv.

Option A is wordy. It is not concise.
Option B uses the incorrect tense. In this case and many others, you cannot use 'will' twice.
Option D is wordy.
Option E is incorrect grammatical construction.
Option C is the answer.

In my view, (B) is wrong.

After searching the usage of "unless" on the internet, then I found this example:

"Unless she hurries up, we won't arrive in time."

You'll see that it uses present simple tense in the unless clause, and uses future tense (will not) in the Then clause.

Then look at this problem, you'll see that it already uses "will" in the Then Clause. Therefore, it is not able to use future tense again in the Unless clause.

The same structure of If...Then is also in the MGMAT SC.


Fantastic point! While I did mark the correct answer, I spent a good amount of time deliberating on B, Eliminated it without really understanding the implications of unless
