from http://www.dictionary.com:

TO LEAD
To serve as a route for; take: The path led them to a cemetery.
To guide the behavior or opinion of; induce: led us to believe otherwise.

LEAD TO A NOUN and LEAD TO DO SMTH are both OK.

My guess at the explanation would be:

Not only the use of create instead of creation plays part in this, the use of word unrelated (more sufficient) instead of less related also plays part. So as styolar mentioned to lead to can be used with noun and verb, the use of unrelated just makes the sentence more efficient and to the point.

SC explanation [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2003, 01:57
hey guys,
I guess I POSTED THE EXPALNATION to mr surat twice,thinking it is for the forum.
here it is (or so ),


lets examine the underlined part of the sentence,''to the creation of divisions that are'',

the subject here is ''creation''(noun),''divisions'' also is a subject but the question is, what are we talking about here -we are talking about the ''creation of divisions'', which shows that ''creation'' is the main subject.

RULE 1,the verb follows the subject,hence it should be ''the creation of divisions that is (instread of are)'', but we do not have a given choice of that kind here.hence the ''divisions ''( as in choice C) takes over as the main subject, as given in the choce C) TO '' CREATE DIVISIONS THAT ARE'' SUITS THE BEST.COS ''TO CREATE'' HERE ADORNS THE GARB OF a verb than a subject. AND ''ARE'' folllows ''DIVISIONS''(plural).

RULE 2, avoid WORDINESS.
HENCE THE ISSUE Of ''less related '' to ''unrelated'' arises.
welcome any comments,

have fun!

Easier answer.... [#permalink] New post 11 Oct 2003, 06:10
You guys are going about it all wrong....this one's actually pretty easy.

1. the creation of new divisions that are, increasingly, less related
2. the creation of new divisions that are increasingly less related
3. create new divisions that are increasingly unrelated
4. be increasingly less related while creating new divisions
5. increasingly create new divisions with less relation


Using the words "increasingly less" doesn't make sense. It's unclear and unidiomatic...how can you have something increasing when it's declining?

This eliminates 2 & 4.

Now the term "less related" is unidomatic. For example, would I be less related to a co-worker than to my brother? That doesn't make sense, does it? You are either related or unrelated. I am UNRELATED to my co-worker.

This eliminates 1 & 5 along with 2 & 4 as well. In each of these there are other errors too that I won't go into.

I've found in SC, that you'll usually find more than one error in an incorrect sentence.

B.

unreleted is a correct expression.
we prefer "unreleted" to "less related" as we do with "regardless" to irregardless"

I'll go with C. 'Increasingly less' is a turn off.
