CR - Harry Truman support (1000 SC) [#permalink] New post 05 Apr 2007, 00:10
259. During Roosevelt’s years in office Black Americans began voting for Democrats rather than Republicans in national elections, but Black support for Democrats at the state and local levels developed only after when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman.

(A) developed only after when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman
(B) developed only after when Harry Truman supported civil rights legislation
(C) developed only after Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation
(D) develops only at the time after the supporting of civil rights legislation by Harry Truman
(E) developed only after there being Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation

OA: C

Please explain why B can't be the answer.

Oh man...I'm wrong again on a 50:50 thing.
Was able to narrow it down to two... :(

Thanks!

'after when' results in an awkward sentence ->A,B out
D -> 'develops' is the wrong tense. need past tense.
E -> 'only after there being' results in an awkward sentence.

C is best.

Thanks!

So I guess GMAT doesn't like using "after when"... :roll:

It isn't grammatically wrong is it? Just that it's awkward...

after implies a time
when implies a time
therefore after when is wordy
