22. During the war, when it looked as if the German army was going to cross into France, English mercenaries joined the French to resist the assault.
(A) it looked as if the German army was going to cross (B) it looked like the German army was going to cross (C) it looked like the German army would have crossed (D) appearances were that the German army would be crossing (E) it appeared that the German army would cross
The correct answer is (E). In Standard Written English, “looked like” and “looked as if” are not synonyms for “appeared that,” eliminating (A), (B), and (C). “Would have” in (C) changes the meaning. “Appearances were that” and “would be crossing” make (D) wordier than the succinct, and correct, (E).
