14.Several senior officials spoke to the press on condition that they not be named
in the story.
(A) that they not be named - To me, this sounds odd. They not be named. Honestly, it sounds like the press would give the officials a nick-name. And these officials do not want to have a nick name. I do not know a better way to explain. Perhaps, I would eliminate this, because Choice C is better.
(B) that their names will not be used - Wrong
. DO not know how to explain, going by the ear.
(C) that their names are not used - Correct
answer. Clearly says that the Officials spoke
on the condition that their names are
not used. Present Perfect- SPOKE and ARE. Goes well.
(D) of not being named - Wrong
. Absence of THAT.
(E) they will not be named - Wrong
- Absence of THAT.
Correct me, if i am wrong.
