C) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work.

E) an investigation by state medical officials has found that, of twelve hospitals, all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working


i did not select C thinking "an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials". gives a meaning as if the investigation is conducted by twelve hospitals.

Can some one tell me what is the Error in option E.

an investigation has found that

a. all twelve consistently break the laws
b. that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight [with more than half the surgical residents working - modifies b]

Hi!
I think the main difference is in the way the last sentence is linked to the earlier one :- xyz residents work 24 hour shifts and pqr surgical residents (nit the same, but potentially different set of residents) working 95 hour weeks.

Option E incorrectly uses "with" to join the last sentence implying that the pqr is from within the abc, which we know need not be true. Option C is a mute correct way of stating the facts.

Hope it helps! :-)

A) twelve hospitals have been investigated by state medical officials, finding that all twelve consistently break the laws, many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work---- Incorrect, because first Investigation has found that hospitals break the laws not state offices or the tweleve hospitals like this sentence implies. Also the many... and that is not parallel.
B) an investigation by state medical officials of twelve hospitals have found all twelve consistently breaking the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working---- An investigation does not match with have. SVA error.
C) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work--- CORRECT.
D) twelve hospitals were investigated by state medical officials who found all twelve breaking the laws, with many residents working longer than 24 hours straight, and more than half the surgical residents work---- Not parallel. the investigation has found, not the state medical officials.
E) an investigation by state medical officials has found that, of twelve hospitals, all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working--- with is incorrectly used. Also the of twelve hospitals, all twelve sounds words and awkward.
