Why not D? [#permalink] New post 13 Jul 2007, 09:06
I would have gone with D but I know the OA is B.
Guys, any reason to eliminate D or B? Please explain.
Anand.

D is wrong because it uses "in childhood" right after "who". B is better.

Would re-framing the choice D to:
who, in childhood, might have at one time died

make it a probable choice?

No, you still need // sentences as in B:
who might once have died in childhood...now live well into old age.

(A) wrong: Use of that is wrong
(B) correct: concise and conveys the intended meaning
(C) wrong: same as A
(D) wrong: modifier problem - incorrect placement of "childhood" which is supposed to modify "died"
(E) wrong: Too wordy

However I feel, to use "Once" with death is like .. you die many times ... once,twice...
Hence don't agree with B and C
