[quote="tonebeeze"]I am having a tough time dissecting the grammar errors in the SC question. I selected (e) as my answer choice, through process of elimination. I would appreciate if someone can walk me through the underlying grammar. Thanks.
Poor people, who already purchase the cheapest food items--starches, frankfurters, beans, and the like--have no items that they can economize when there is a rise in the overall price of food
a. that they can economize when there is a rise in the overall price of food == meaning to economize is to practice economy, i think this is correct costruction but wordy as comared to E
b. on which there can be economizing when there is a rise in the overall price of food == wordy construction "on which" and economizing shows continuing action
c. for economizing if there will be an overall rise in the price of food == -ing form not required
d. on which to economize when the overall prices of food rise = cant hv two verbs in the same sentence ( have and to+ )
e. that can be economical when overall prices of food rise = correct and concise
feel free to correct me if i am wrong
