Hey Laxie,
Her name is "Tanvi" which means "a delicate girl" but I want to make her tough enough to face GMAT sometime ;) In fact, when she learnt to pick up things, the first thing she picked up was a pen! :-D

Ha ha ha :lol: Yeah, these uncles, aunties will be away on their ventures but I'll give her all you buddies' contants so that she can keep disturbing you all!

(A) between passing
(B) of passing
(C) between its passes
(D) of its passes
(E) as it passes


"Interval between" is a correct usage but it seems to me that we need "interval between X and Y" . ^ B ^ sounds more accurate to me here. A very confusing question :?
