Tough call between D & E.

Settle for E. 'It' in D is troubling me.

I am also not sure between D and E...

C may be wrong (may be) because of passive voice ... other than that C also looks good :)

C does not follow the series of "X, Y , and Z", so C shocked me :-D C out

E is parallelism

I am also split between C & E.

I read all the explanation to support E; so I agree with E.

Re: SC-private house [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2009, 09:04
i think the sentence "A private house".......... itself states that its a building
so using the answer option i.e is a building......... would create redundacy.....

so answer E suits the best..

please correct if i am wrong
