Although it was expected that workers under forty would show hostility to the plan, the research report indicates that both younger and the older people approve of governmental appropriations for Social Security.
(A) younger and the older people
(B) younger people and the older
(C) the younger and the older people
(D) younger and older people
(E) people who are younger and those who are older
I like C - I was tempted to pick D, but I went against it because it seems as though we are talking about 3 groups of people: younger, older and the group that was expected to show hostility. When I read the sentance like this, I would include include "the" before "younger group" and "older group." _________________
"Both x and y" argument sounds real tempting. BUT, we are referring to two collective nouns - younger group of people and older group of people and hence we need to use the definite article to specify these groups!
This is a tricky one! Wud love to see the OA! _________________
