I would go for C

a proof yet exists of seems not correct, it should be a proof of
A and B are out

E seems wordy

Between C and D I would go for C which seems clear and more direct

(D) that poses any threat to health from electromagnetic fields generated by household appliances

Wowza...This is one of the toughest questions I've seen on this board. Trying to breakdown each answer seems near immposible [atleast for me]. <DC>, IC. All answer choices fit this structure.


Could someone/anyone breakdown why each answer choice is wrong?

D: Wrong because it make it seem like the "proof" poses a threat.
E: Wrong becuase posed by electromagnetic fields genereated by household appliaces is absurd.

Anyone care to breakdown why A, B are wrong??

I was able to narrow down to get my AC by "listening" to which AC sounds good [bad bad bad].

To me C appears to be a good choice.

I go for C, too.

A and B are out because 'exists of electromagnetic fields' is unclear.
D is out necessarily because 'exists that poses any threat to health' is wrong.

Could anybody help to refute E? thanks

It seems that ETS does not like 'something for...' sentence style.

OA please.....

I wasnt aware of the fact that "proof that" is an idiom. Neither PR Verbal Workout nor Kaplan has this as an idiom. Where did you guys find that proof that was an idiom.

You can think 'proof that' as 'evidence that' or 'theory that'. It would be better to use 'that'. 8-)

Could someone/anyone tell me the source of idiom? The reason i'm asking is coz if you didnt know this idiom the degree of difficulty of this SC goes up [atleast it did for me]. I want to get my hands on the source of this idiom(s).

I've used PR and Kaplan for their idiom lists. Could someone tell me where they got the idiom "proof that"

IMO the question is not testing idiom

Proof that is not an idiom - that is used to introduce a restrictive clause here which describes what the proof is about.

I too dont think 'proof that' is the idiom.
Here "that" is used to refer to the clause "no proof exists".

In A I was not comfortable with appliances "posing". "pose" is better.
B uses and additional "that" for the appliances and is not required.
DE are out for various reasons listed.
E. "no proof exists for" doesnt sound correct. "no proof exists of" makes sense.


Go with C.
