GMAT Plus Book 1 Problem #130 [#permalink] New post 11 Dec 2004, 14:49
Many medical schools are now offering courses in the ethics of treating terminal patients, partly to alert students, about the legal implications involved in such treatment, but primarily to prepare students, through discussion and fore thought, to make responsible decisions that respect terminal patients’ dignity

(A) but primarily to prepare students, through discussion and forethought, to make responsible decisions that respect terminal patients’ dignity
(B) but primarily as to prepare students, by discussing and by thinking ahead, for responsible decision making that respect terminal patients’ dignity
(C) but primarily for the purpose of preparing them, with discussion and forethought, to make responsible decisions that respect terminal patients’ dignity
(D) but primarily to preparing them, through discussion and forethought, for deciding responsibility so that they respect terminal patients’ dignity
(E) but primarily to prepare them, by discussing and thinking ahead, to responsibly decide so as to respect the dignity of terminal patients

i think A


parallelism :

"partly to alert students..... but to prepare students"

"them" in C,D,E vaguely refers to students


OA pls?

'to prepare them' and 'for preparing them' - both will be idiomatically correct, right?

Re: GMAT Plus Book 1 Problem #130 [#permalink] New post 14 Jul 2014, 00:26
can someone please explain all the answer choices ?

here goes my explanation:
a) partly to alert ...... but primarily to ..... to make responsible decisions
b)so as to -wrong idiom . i guess it has to be -so [adjective] as to [verb]"making that respects terminal patient's dignity " awkward construction
c)"them" pronoun ambiguity, " the purpose of "- wordy can be shortened by using a verb
d) "them" - pronoun ambiguity
e) same as D and "so as to" - wordy and idiomatically incorrect
