navneetaron,

My suggestion to you is avoid Barrons for GMAT Verbal. Even though it is a good guide for GRE, I am not so sure about the same for GMAT. There is plenty of other materials you can use for GMAT. I would suggest start out with involving yourself actively in this forum.

Between B and C depending on whether data is treated as singular or plural on the GMAT.

Data is plural for Datum and should be followed by plural verbs but it's becoming a accpetable to use data with singular verbs. thus i will pick B

Agree with Folaa3. Also "which" is correctly used for non restrictive clause in (B). GMAT believes that "that" has to be used for restrictive clauses. In other words in (C) "which" needs to be changed to "that".

Praveen,
Thanks a lot for the advice. My work plan is working with Princeton Book ,Barrons (it has 6 full tests), Powerprep(tests), Princeton CD, Kaplan book, Kaplan CD, and finally Official Guide in that order. So I'm using Barrons just as another source of full length tests.

Will be interested in learning from others thoughts as well. My GMAT is on May 25.

FYI: Quite a few of latin words that end in "a" or an "i" are plural in English.

Either you transfer the data ... or file a report... -> not parallel.

B/C would give you the parallelism needed:

You either transfer the data..... or file the report....

Between B and C, go with B. The demand is made by probably a superior or some one else (singular), not the data.

B it is.

Re: SC: Transfer the data- Souce -Barrons [#permalink] New post 30 Mar 2005, 18:33
None of the chices is correct. C would be the answer only and if coma was put after data.

But Navneetaron, you had better drop it as suggested by Praveen. it is outdated. i also happend to see it but didnot find any worthful. you can find better materials. do not waste your time.

I understand the part about data being plural and datum being singular.

But, why does the answer has to start with

"You either..."

Instead of
"Either you transfer"... This one sounds more right.

Can someone please explain?

The conjunction "OR" requires that the 2 parts of the sentence be grammatically and logically parallel.

Either you transfer ... or [Missing subject] file a report ...
In this sentence the second part is missing the subject. Who is going to file a report ?
This sentence can be corrected in the following 2 ways:
1. Either you transfer ... or you file a report ...
2. You either transfer ... or file a report ...

In the 2nd sentence "You" serves as a subject for both parts of the sentence and the 2 parts are grammatically parallel.

Based on this logic only B or C can be the correct answer. Now there are couple of problems with C
1. Lack of comma before which. This is not a big issue as GMAT doesn't test punctuation.
2. Biggest problem is with the use of plural verb "were" with subject "data". Now data is the plural of datum, but data is used as a singular noun in this sentence.

Asking the following 2 questions would help us understand why data is singular in this sentence:
1. How much data ? - Correct
Or
2. How many data ? - Incorrect

Data in this sentence is a non-countable noun and grammatically non-countable nouns such as furniture, mail and bread are all Singular.
Example
1. Metal furniture is more durable than wood furniture.
2. Presorted mail costs much less than do other types of mail.
3. Bread is a staple food prepared from a dough of flour and water.

Hence option B is the best.
