"Each having" incorrectly modifies "A similar type of construction".

hence incorrect

Experts please explain why not C

Having is almost always incorrect on GMAT. Only case where HAVING is correct is HAVING + PAST PARTICIPLE
e.g.Having studied hard, I scored 700+ on GMAT

hello, can anyone explain to me why we cant use "all" instead of "each" in this question? plz

"Each" refers to "every Romance language", which is singular. Therefore "each" is required, rather than "all".

Nonetheless, even if the sentence were "A similar type of construction can be found in all Romance languages", then as well "each" would be better (as a subgroup modifier) because the implied meaning is that each language individually has a consistent order, not that all languages collectively have consistent orders.

Hi sayantanc2k,

Can you elucidate how option C can be rightly eliminated here?

Regards,

I do not see any problem with option C. A subgroup modifier is constructed in the following way:
Any of the SANAM pronouns + a modifier.
Option A uses each + prepositional phrase modifier
Option C uses each + present participle modifier.

I am not aware of any rule that forbids use of present participle modifier within a subgroup modifier. So in my opinion, both A and C are correct.

We need to ask Kaplan (if it is truly Kaplan's question) why they consider that C is wrong .

"Each having" incorrectly modifies "A similar type of construction".

hence incorrect

It is supposed to modify those words only. Both A & C use adverb modifiers - A uses prep. ph and C uses present participle

after "comma" we need here something that modifies "every roman language" not "a similar type of construction".

I wouldn't say incorrect. The SC part differs from RC and CR in this respect: there can be two or three correct answenrs, but one of them is the most correct. I personally love to use structures with having, but unfortunately this is not strongly recommended on the GMAT

Will this apply for all present participle verbs?

Can present participle + past participle construction be always correct?

A is correct.
1) The underlined part modifies "every Roman language", so "each" should be used;
2) a consistent order of X, Y and Y is a correct form.
