Hi Shradhha,
Having serious confusion :(

For B : You've said that "The phrase “as well as” is not followed by a verb" But it's followed by the verb 'emit' I guess...Please clarify.
“having been implicated” and "that have been implicated" both suggest that the action is already done I think...Your thoughts please!

Please help me understand these!


Hi Debayan,

Let me rephrase what I wrote as reasons for Choice B to be incorrect.

1. The first reason why Choice B is incorrect that verbs are not used "as well as". This is a standard way of using "as well as". Becaue we have a verb followed by "as well as", this choice stands incorrect.
.............



I dont agree with e-gmat on

as well as + verb is ALWAYS wrong

I think the rule here is : Additive clauses separate two independent clauses .

<independent clause > , as well as < independent clause>

< independent clause > as well as < dependent clause >

She likes to eat as well as {to} dance while working.

She likes to eat , as well as to dance while working


Infact , here in B, it can also be implied that 'they' is eclipsed before emit ( marked )

I think the 'B' option is wrong because , of 'having' .

Diesel engines burn as much as 30% less fuel than gasoline engines of comparable size, as well as they emit far less carbon dioxide gas and far fewer of the other gasses having been implicated in global warming.

Hi eski,
In the example that you have provided, "to dance" is not a verb. It's a "to verb" or an ifnitive. The verb in the sentence is "likes" which does not occur after "as well as".

Thanks.
