Could u explain more about choice B?I will split it separately.

1.Bill Walton continued playing---S+V
2.in spite of recurrent injuries----Prep. phrase
3.always hoping to return to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved. ---What is it function?
If it functions as " relative clause", The relative clause shoud be placed near Bill Walton, isn't it ?

in E the last part of the sentence is ambiguous and seems wrong...

"hoping that the return to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved"

My point is "3.always hoping to return to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved. ---[color=red]What is it function? "

AS MY LINK
According to some economists, Japan is in danger of plunging into a depression that, with double-digit unemployment, could severely strain a society that regards lifetime employment as a virtual right of citizenship.
Could u see "that" which modify "depression" ?

Dear ong,

do you know the OA to this question..if yes please share that with us.

About the economist post, I still dont see how that relates to this question. and what do you really mean by "what is it function" what exactly are u referring to?

cheers!

OA is B

" gordon" thanks you , I would like to say "what fuction is it" not "what is it function?" sorry for a mistake
I did not understand in choice B in that
Why structure is " clause, prep.phrase,V......."Could someone explain me more this sentence?
In choic B, it is problematic with grammar,isn't it?

^ B ^

(A) "recurred over and over again" ---> redundant

(C) "injured over and over" ---> redundant

(D) wordy

(E) "hoping that the return" is not forming a sentence

B it is. Removes a lot of redundancies
Continued on is redundant
Return back is redundant.

As refering this link, I learn only that the criteria is redunduncies, concise
1.returned back,
2.recurring over and over
3.continue on
4.usage of continue is
- continue to do
- continue doing
However, I still get in doubt that there are no any conjucntion, and illogical relative clause in choice B thus make me refusing the OA.
In choice B, it should be rectifed like this.
In spite of recurrent injuries,Bill Walton continued playing and always hoping to return to his position as a regular starter in the game he loved.

I would be appreciated if someone explained me why choice B is correct :shock:

Dear Ong,

You really dont need the conjunction 'and ' as you in red. we are not trying to join two sentences here. A comma suffices.
