thank you Shraddha. I thought "as with" was correct based on Payal's note:
Quote:
Now comes the question is "as with" incorrect? The answer is "no". See "as can be followed by a prepositional phrase", if we see application of ellipsis.

@Thulsy - you have touched upon this point in your response and I am glad that you did recognize that as can be followed by prepositional phrase. But I see that there is a slight gap in your understanding. When as is followed by a prepositional phrase, it is not required that the entity that it is compared with should also be a prepositional phrase. (On a tangential but definitely related note - I like your thought process - you are thinking about the intended meaning, then you are figuring out what is wrong with choice, and then you are applying splits in the answer choices - perfect approach!! Just read my comments below and see if you can add a bit more to your second step.)

Coming back to as + prepositional phrase - Lets take an example here:

"As with any well-executed marketing plan, sales jumped whenever fans were goosed with new media." - courtesy nytimes.com
Here the usage of "as with" is absolutely correct. Why? Because ellipsis is at play, How? the words "is the case" have been omitted to create a much more concise sentence.


How do we solve this question based on the methodolgy above?

More than thirty years ago Dr. Barbara Mc-Clintock, the Nobel Prize winner,
reported that genes can “jump,” as pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another.
(A) as pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
(B) like pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another
(C) as pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
(D) like pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others
(E) as do pearls that move mysteriously from one necklace to some other one

When I tried, this comes up a comparison and not a function. If genes can jump is being compared - I tried all three choices with as, but none of them were parallel as none had ability (using or not using can). but then I forcefully chose one of them. Please help.


From my experience of Gmat study the SC is one of the most important part of prep in which we should spend some time on every question to analyse why the answer is wrong for reasons other than selected by us.

(A) as pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another - I can see only one error - usage of as pearls is wrong : AS+ Clause should be the pattern
(B) like pearls moving mysteriously from one necklace to another - correct usage of like - Like+ noun
(C) as pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others - other than wrong usage of as, one necklace to others is wrong too.
(D) like pearls do that move mysteriously from one necklace to others - same as above
(E) as do pearls that move mysteriously from one necklace to some other one - wrong usage

This sentence is still incorrect.
1. Function of “with” is unclear in this sentence. We may ask what with human DNA? We don’t get any answer to that.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

As with that of humans, the DNA of grape plants contains sites where unique sequences of nucleotides are repeated over and over.

This sentence only corrects the number error by changing "those" in the origibnal sentence to "that" in your example. We still don't know what the function of "with" is. So this sentence is incoorect.

As in the case of human DNA, the DNA of grape plants contains sites where unique sequences of nucleotides are repeated over and over. This sentence is again incorrect because the comparison is not clear here. The preopsitional phrase after "as" fails to establish the comparison.

The correct sentence would be:
As it is with human DNA, the DNA of grape plants contains sites where unique sequences of nucleotides are repeated over and over.

Thanks.
Shraddha.

Hi Himanshu,

Analyze these two sentences:

1. Like honeybees, hummingbirds collect nectar from flowers.
2. As honeybees do, hummingbirds collect nectar from flowers.

Both the sentences are correct as the usages of "like" and "as" are correct in sentences 1. and 2. respectively. However, there is a very slight change in the meaning of both the sentences.

Sentence 1. just compares the two creatures. Honeybees and hummimhgbirds, both collect nectar from flowers.

Sentence 2. compares the way in which these two creatures collect nectar. The difference in meaning is very slight though.

Thanks.
Shraddha.

Thanks Shraddha for your inputs.

I have seen some questions where instead of nouns, clauses gets compared. Could you please present an example here, where two clauses gets compared rather than nouns. I would like to gauge your though process on those type of comparisons.

Thanks

Hi Himanshu,

Whenever we read about the usage of “like vs. as”, we always read that “like” is used to compare “nouns” while “as” is used to compare clauses. So your confusion is pretty valid. But if you have read our article carefully, you must have noticed that we do not even for once say that. The thing really is “like” can also compare actions but it is ALWAYS followed by a noun, whereas in comparison senetnces “as” is ALWAYS followed by a clause. For example:

1. The baby smiles like her mother.
2. The baby smiles as her mother does.

If you study sentence 1 carefully, you will see that we are comparing baby to her mother because a particular actions performed by the baby is similar to the same action performed by her mother. So actually we are comparing actions in the first sentence. It is the way they both smile that makes the basis of comparison.
However, the only difference is that when we show that comparison by using “like”, we use a noun – “her mother” – after “like”. On the other hand, when present the same comparison, using “as”, we place a clause – “her mother does” – after “as”.
The usage of “like” and what it actually compares have been covered in great details in our free concept “Usage of Like”.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Hi Shradha,
Can you help me with following question,
According to a recent poll, owning and living in a freestanding house on its own land is still a goal of a majority of young adults, like that of earlier generations.

(A) like that of earlier generations
(B) as that for earlier generations
(C) just as earlier generations did
(D) as have earlier generations
(E) as it was of earlier generations
Why A is not the answer? t does compare goals of two generation, which are both nouns

Let me help you in this.(till shraddha replies :-D )
you are perfectly right in saying:THAT OF ===>this is refering to goal....but comparison is not correct.
let me show you how
if you just remove the part ACCORDING TO RECENT POLL......and put the LIKE THAT OF EARLIER GENERATIONS aheadof sentence...Senntence becomes:

LIKE THAT OF EARLIER GENERATION,owning and living in a freestanding house on its own land is still a goal of a majority of young adults==>now you can see how this comparison is wrong.....we are comparing GOAL with OWNING AND LIVING......==>So thats why it is wrong.

now in the correct option OPTION E:as it was of earlier generations ==>PUT THIS THING AHEAD OF SENTENCE TO SEE CLEAR COMPARISON.

AS IT WAS OF EARLIER GENERATION, owning and living in a freestanding house on its own land is still a goal of a majority of young adults

in this IT IS REFERING TO==>OWNING AND LIVING ........so correct comparison

now you must be thinking that owning and living must be plural..because we are connecting with AND....but this also has few exception ..such as in this question.

hope it helps..

Hi Tavish,
According to a recent poll, owning and living in a freestanding house on its own land is still a goal of a majority of young adults, like that of earlier generations.

In this question, we need to pay attention to the structure of the sentence to actually understand the two entities that have been compared in the sentence.

So let’s start with a few simple sentences:
• Like Jane, Julia loves ice cream.
• Julia loves ice cream, like Jane.

In the above two, it is very clear that Julia has been compared to Jane. But also pay attention to the structure of the sentence. In the first sentence, “Like + noun” is followed by a comma. When we have a construction like this, then the noun following “like” is compared to the subject of the following clause.
In the second sentence, “like + noun” appears at the end of the clause preceded by a comma. In a construction like this also, the noun following “like” is compared to the subject of the preceding clause.

Now let’s analyze the structure of the official sentence. Here, “like + that of earlier generations” appears after the main clause preceded by a comma. This means “that of earlier generations” must be compared to the subject of the preceding clause.

Now the subject of the preceding clause is “owning and living in a freestanding house…”. In fact, “that” in “that of earlier generations” actually stands for this noun. Is this a logical comparison? Certainly not. This is the reason why choice A is incorrect.

So with this knowledge, analyze the rest of the sentence and find out the correct answer. You can post your analysis here.

Hope this helps. :)
Thanks.
Shraddha

I absolutely love all EGMAT posts on Sentence Correction. They give so much insight into the problems and intricacies. I love the fact that Official problems are used. But I just have one suggestion - I really would appreciate if only OG problems are utilized for giving examples. Because of the fact that if we already encounter a GMATPrep problem in EGMAT's posts, then the GMATPrep score might get bumped up :( And examples are obviously very important to go through. I would appreciate if EGMAT considers this.

Thanks!
