45. The music for which we heard last night at the concert was exceptionally good.
a) for which we heard last night at the concert
b) to which we listened at the concert last night
c) last night at the concert that we listened
d) of last night’s concert who we heard
e) which we listened last night at the concert

OA - B

--why can we simply say: The music which we listened at the concert last night was exceptionally great. ? (is it the commas?)

Since comma is missing in E, I picked up B.

This is a test of idiom. The right idiom is ‘listen to’. Any choice without the accompaniment of the preposition’ to’ either as ‘listen to’ or in a slightly variant fashion as “to which listen”, is faulty. Note that B is the only choice that maintains the idiom.

Yes, in this case, we tried to make it a bit tricky.

It says "to which we listened" and then we threw in "at the concert"
In reality, the "to" refers to "listened" and "at" does not.

Makes sense or not really?
