Nice set. Here's my take.

1.C
2.E
3.D
4.B
5.E


P.S : It would be great if we can have a set for meaning based questions as well (since there is so less "official" material in this area that one can lay hands on)

1.C, 2.E, 3.D, 4.B, 5.E.

OA plz?

1. Like many of his contemporaries did, Bob Dylan wrote songs that became anthems for a generation of antiwar activists.

• Like many of his contemporaries did, Bob Dylan wrote songs
=> Like X, Y: X and Y must be parallel, X, Y must be Noun or noun phrase. Eliminate A since X is a clause
• Bob Dylan wrote songs like many of his contemporaries => this choice is ambiguos in meaning since it misplaces "like many of his contemporaries" after "songs". Therefore, B out.
• As did many of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan wrote songs
=> As X, Y: X and Y are clauses and parallel, So this is the correct ans.
• Like the songs of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan wrote songs
=> Songs and Bob Dylan are not parallel
• As did many of Bob Dylan’s contemporaries, he wrote songs
=> it changes the meaning of the original sentence. The sentence implies the action done by Bob Dylan compared with his contemporaries.

2. Unlike Mozart, whose funeral was sparsely attended being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s was attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms.

=> Unlike X, Y: X and Y are Noun or noun phrases and must be parallel. X is Mozart, Y is therefore Name of a person or refers to people. Eliminate A, B, D.
Between B and E, E is better since in B: "whose funeral was sparsely attended" (a phrase) isnt parallel to "he was buried in an unmarked common grave" (a clause)

• being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s was attended by about thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms

• being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s funeral was attended by about thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place was near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery
• and he was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven was given a funeral attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery
• and who was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s funeral was attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms
• and who was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven was given a funeral attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and lies buried near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery

3. Like in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed the economy this January.
=> "as + adj/adv + as", so eliminate A, B, E since these choices omit "as" after "as often".
in C: "car sales to first-time buyers as often as, if not more often than, to return customers" lacks verb. thus, E is correct.

• Like in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed
• Like in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often, if not more often than, return customers and that buoyed
• As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often as, if not more often than, to return customers and it buoyed
• As in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often as, if not more often than, return customers, buoying
• As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed

4. From the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and the sailors who have fought America’s wars.

=> From X to Y, both X and Y: X and Y must be nouns, phrases and parralel. From X and Y is not correct idiom, so is both X to Y. Eliminate A, D, E for this error. C repeats "soldiers", making this choice awkward and wordy.
B is correct



• the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• the Civil War to the Vietnam war, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• soldiers in the Civil War and soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• soldiers in the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers to
• the Civil War and the Vietnam war, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and

5. During the rule of Emperor Claudius, which was known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded any city in the Roman Empire.

=> use of "which" will be incorrectly refers to Emperor Claudius, the author wants to compare the population of ancient Rome to the population of any OTHER city in Roman empire. Therefore, A, B, D are incorrect. Between C and E, E is better since E correctly compare the population of Rome to that of any OTHER city.


• which was known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome was exceeded by no other
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded that of any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, ancient Rome exceeded any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded that of any other

1. Like many of his contemporaries did, Bob Dylan wrote songs that became anthems for a generation of antiwar activists.

• Like many of his contemporaries did, Bob Dylan wrote songs
• Bob Dylan wrote songs like many of his contemporaries
• As did many of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan wrote songs
• Like the songs of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan wrote songs
• As did many of Bob Dylan’s contemporaries, he wrote songs
As per the meaning of the sentence, BD needs to be compared to his contemporaries...
Also, Like is always followed by Noun or Pronoun
As is followed by Clause in case of Comparison..
Thus Option A is out because Like is followed by Clause
Option B: Usage of like is incorrect...The sentence means songs were like many of his contemporaries
Option D: Incorrext: Songs of BD's contemporaries compared to BD
Option E: No pronoun antecedent for "he "...Possessive pronoun can be the replace Possessive noun

Ans is C


2. Unlike Mozart, whose funeral was sparsely attended being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s was attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms.

• being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s was attended by about thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms
• being buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s funeral was attended by about thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place was near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery
• and he was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven was given a funeral attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery
• and who was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven’s funeral was attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and his final resting place lies in a famous Vienna cemetery near the graves of Schubert and Brahms
• and who was buried in an unmarked common grave, Beethoven was given a funeral attended by more than thirty-thousand mourners and lies buried near the graves of Schubert and Brahms in a famous Vienna cemetery

Sentence Meaning: Unlike the funeral of Mozart which was attended sparcely and was buried in an unmarked grave, Beethoven had a funeral which was attended by more than 30000 people and his final resting place in a famous Vienna cemetry

As per original Sentence, Mozart is compared to Beethoven's funeral which is not correct comparison....On this basis alone Option A,B and D are ruled out

Option C has a parallelism error, Unlike Mozart, whose funeral was sparsely attended and he was buried in an unmarked common grave

Whose and He are not parallel...

E is good




4. Like in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed the economy this January.

• Like in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed
• Like in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often, if not more often than, return customers and that buoyed
• As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often as, if not more often than, to return customers and it buoyed
• As in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often as, if not more often than, return customers, buoying
• As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed
Sentence Meaning: Like in 2004, Car sales to first time buyers as often than to return customers buoyed the economy..
B : Like in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often, if not more often than, return customers and that buoyed---Often return customers does not make sense..also that usage is incorrect...It is neither working a connector nor a pronoun...What buoyed the economy was Car sales first time buyers.

C As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often as, if not more often than, to return customers and it buoyed----> Car Sales is plural...usage of "It" is incorrect..
D As in 2004, first-time buyers bought cars as often as, if not more often than, return customers, buoying-----> There is a meaning change...while the original sentence means that Car sales to first time buyers buoyed the economy where as option D means...first time buyers buoyed the economy..

E: As in 2004, car sales to first-time buyers as often, if not more often than, to return customers buoyed----> Problem is with usage of "As"...As should be followed by Clause...

A is the answer


4. From the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and the sailors who have fought America’s wars.

• the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• the Civil War to the Vietnam war, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• soldiers in the Civil War and soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
• soldiers in the Civil War to soldiers in Vietnam, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers to
• the Civil War and the Vietnam war, Smith & Wesson, the legendary arms maker, equipped both the soldiers and
There is a use of Idiom "From X to Y, Where X and Y should be parallel" so at first glance options not following this structure can be ruled out...
Option C and E are out..
Option A is out because Civil war is not parallel to Soldiers in Vietnam
Second usage is of the Idiom " Both X and Y"----> Option D is out because of Incorrect usage of Idiom
Ans is B

5. During the rule of Emperor Claudius, which was known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded any city in the Roman Empire.

• which was known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome was exceeded by no other
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded that of any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, ancient Rome exceeded any
• known for his military expeditions against the German tribes of the Chauci and Catti, the population of ancient Rome exceeded that of any other[/quote]

Sentence Meaning: During the rule of EC who was known for his ME against the german tribes, the population of AR exceeded that of any "other" city in the roman empire..

Option A : Usage of any is not correct because any city will involve AR as well...we need to use "other"...Usage of Which is also not correct..here which is referring to EC
Option B: Usage of Passive voice...But we can hold this option
Option C is out on because of no usage of "other"
Option D: Ancient Rome is compared to any city...This is not correct comparison
Option E: is better as it avoids PV...

E is the answer
