A) practical communication between people engaged in the same task to establishing hierarchy -- practical communication not parallel to establishing--out
B) communicating practically between people engaging in the same task to the establishment of hierarchy -- comunicating not paralel to establishment
C) practical communication between people engaged in the same task to the establishing of hierarchy -- communication not parallel to establishing
D) communicating practically between people engaging in the same task to hierarchy established -- communicating not parallel to heirarchy established
E) practical communication between people engaged in the same task to the establishment of hierarchy --- communication parallel to establishment

According to anthropologists, the use of human language covers a wide spectrum from practical communication between people engaged in the same task to establishing hierarchy within a social group.



A. practical communication between people engaged in the same task to establishing hierarchy

B. communicating practically between people engaging in the same task to the establishment of hierarchy

C. practical communication between people engaged in the same task to the establishing of hierarchy

D. communicating practically between people engaging in the same task to hierarchy established

E. practical communication between people engaged in the same task to the establishment of hierarchy

Meaning Analysis :

Anthropologists suggest that use of human language covers:

1. Practical communication b/w people engaged

2. Establishing hierarchy with in a social group

Error Analysis

1. There is one clause

a. Subject : The use & Verb : covers

b. Idiom usage : From X to Y , so X & Y should be parallel

c. X = Noun Phrase

i. Noun = Practical Communication

ii. Engaged is verb-ed modifier

d. Y = Noun Phrase ( Gerund/Verb ing)

i. Noun= ‘Establishing’ Hierarchy

Problem : I don’t understand why answer choice is incorrect.
