I like C - I believe you'd want to use "for" as the preposition is trying to say what the purpose of the angiography is.

This is a tough one though.

The primary defintion of "for" is to be used as a function word to indicate purpose, etc., whereas to is used as a function word to indicate purpose, intention, tendency, or a result. However, "to" is a secondary defintion.

I guess the appositive a sophisticated method for diagnosing coronary disease.

also vote for C

for diagnosing coronary disease involving the introduction
to diagnose coronary disease that involves the introduction of a dye

the above constructions mean that it is a disease that involves introducing a dye. Wrong. It is a METHOD, that involves a dye.

Only C makes it clear.

That sure sounds like you, Victor.

JMHO, but only when you at least make the effort to translate ETS-ese into your OWN WORDS so that us nincompoops can start to comprehend it will you actually start to internalize this stuff yourself.

Stolyar is right [#permalink] New post 29 Jul 2003, 05:20
Stolyar is right, it could modify disease or method. This misplaced modification occurs in the appositive phrase.

Good job, Stolyar :wink:

E) to diagnose coronary disease involving the introduction of a dye into the arteries of the heart, which is now administered selectively, uses

C it is.
