OA TO FOLLOW


KUDOS TO GOOD EXPLANATION.


Tough one.

IMO, D is correct. Here is my 2 cents.

Split #1: S-V agreement.
A is wrong because "high inflation" is singular ==> "lead" is wrong.
A)High inflation if not followed by correspondingly increasing of lending rates lead to devaluation of currency ==> WRONG.

Split#2: "Correspondingly" vs "Corresponding".
We need a comparison: high inflation VS increase in lending rates ==> Adjective "corresponding" which modifies "increase" is correct. ==> "high inflation" VS "corresponding increase in lending rates". If we use "correspondingly" - adverb, the comparison is wrong. Thus, B and C are out.

B)High inflation when not followed by increase in lending rates can correspondingly lead to devaluation of currency ==> WRONG.
C)High inflation if it is not correspondingly followed by increase in lending rates leads to devaluation of currency ==> WRONG.

Split #3: "not being followed by" is ungrammatical. So, E is wrong.
E)High inflation not being followed by increase in corresponding lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency ==> WRONG.

Only D is left and is correct.
D)High inflation if not followed by corresponding increase in lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency ==> CORRECT.

Waiting for OA.

High inflation if not followed by correspondingly increasing of lending rates lead to devaluation of currency.
A)High inflation if not followed by correspondingly increasing of lending rates lead to devaluation of currency - Adverb "Correspondingly" distorts the intended meaning of the sentence. Moreover Adverb can describe Verb/Adjective/Adverb but never a noun "increasing of lending rates" (gerund phrase). Incorrect.

B)High inflation when not followed by increase in lending rates can correspondingly lead to devaluation of currency - Adverb "Correspondingly" distorts the intended meaning of the sentence. WHEN can not be used to indicate a metaphorical time situation. Incorrect.

C)High inflation if it is not correspondingly followed by increase in lending rates leads to devaluation of currency - Adverb "Correspondingly" distorts the intended meaning of the sentence. Run on sentence. Incorrect.

D)High inflation if not followed by corresponding increase in lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency - Correct.

E)High inflation not being followed by increase in corresponding lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency - We need a conditional sentence to clearly convey the intended meaning but use of BEING distorts the meaning altogether. Incorrect.

Note - This sentence is an example of Type 1 conditional.

Hope the explanation will help many

Doesnt D change the meaning?

Original : High inflation if not followed by correspondingly increasing of lending rates lead to devaluation of currency. ---> Certainty

Option D: High inflation if not followed by corresponding increase in lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency ---> Not certain

Yes, but the 'if' at the beginning at the sentence shows uncertainty..so 'can lead' does not change the meaning.

Hi Igotthis (i like you name ;) )

If clause in the original sentence does not have anything to do with uncertainty of devaluation of currency.

ex High inflation happens (without increase in lending rates) lead to devaluation of currency.
High inflation happens (without increase in lending rates) can lead to devaluation of currency.

Shouldn't the correct answer read "High inflation if not followed by A corresponding increase in lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency"?

A)High inflation if not followed by correspondingly increasing of lending rates lead to devaluation of currency
B)High inflation when not followed by increase in lending rates can correspondingly lead to devaluation of currency
C)High inflation if it is not correspondingly followed by increase in lending rates leads to devaluation of currency
D)High inflation if not followed by corresponding increase in lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency
E)High inflation not being followed by increase in corresponding lending rates can lead to devaluation of currency


Meaning:
1. There is high inflation.
2. With high inflation, if lending rates is not increased correspondingly (inflation rises vs lending rates).
3. If 2 does not happen with 1, leads to currency devaluation. But is not certain.

My pick: D

D: if not followed by corresponding (high inflation vs lending rates) can lead to devaluation. Correct.
E. not being is a negation. incorrect.
A. lead to is a certainty but meaning is not that. it has a missing verb. increasing is not a verb.
B. when not followed is wrong.
C. if it is--too wordy
