Dr. Crock's claims have been not corroborated by other [#permalink]

Dr. Crock's claims have been not corroborated by other scientists or published in a prestigious journal but have nonetheless garnered a great deal of attention from the public.

Dr. Crock's claims have not been corroborated by other scientists or published in a prestigious journal but have nonetheless garnered a great deal of attention from the public.

as shown in the answer bolded, there are 3 parallel markers. I'm confused at a few things. For the parallel marker "or" it seems to be the two components are "been corroborated by other scientists" and "published in a prestigious journal". They mention a rule in manhattan that a verb form, which i'm guessing "been corroborated" is, can just have the first part "been" striped across its parallel elements so we don't have to repeat it. Also, the "not", "but' markers confuses me. Although it all sounds correct, the "have" is before the "not", so I thought that was not part of the parallel component, but there exists "but have"

thanks

Sure, the question is just to fix the sentence. But one thing I didn't mention is it underlines a portion of the question, and says please fix this to fix the overall parallelism.

Dr. Crock's claims have been not corroborated by other scientists or published in a prestigious journal but have nonetheless garnered a great deal of attention from the public.

then the question says basically the underlined portion has a parallelism problem, fix it.

Ok. This problem is from Page 60 Manhattan GMAT Parallelism Problem set.

Rule: Some verb or forms derived from verbs have more than one word: was opening, can lose, to increase. You can often split apart these expressions, so that the first word or words count across all elements.

In our context, we can break the sentence in 2 parts.

So part 1 is: Dr. Crock's claims have not been corroborated by other scientists or (BEEN) published in a prestigious journal. (we dont need to use been in the 2nd half because of the rule mentioned above)

Part 2 is: Dr. Crock's claims have not been corroborated by other scientists but have nonetheless garnered a great deal of attention from the public.

The trick is to look out for conjunctions and other parallelism markers, so that you can make the sentence grammatically and structurally equivalent.

Hope this helps.

Would it be acceptable to say:

Dr. Crock's claims have been not corroborated by other scientists or published in a prestigious journal but nonetheless garnered a great deal of attention from the public.

So here "Corroborated" is parallel to "Published" via "Or";

and "Corroborated" is parallel to "gained" via "But Nonetheless".
