If Dr. Wade was right, any apparent connection of the eating of highly processed foods and excelling at sports is purely coincidental.
A) If Dr. Wade was right, any apparent connection of the eating of
B) Should Dr. Wade be right, any apparent connection of eating
C) IF Dr. Wade is right, any connection that is apparent between eating of
D) If Dr. Wade is right, any apparent connection between eating
E) Should Dr.Wade have been right, any connection apparent between eating.
After answering the aforementioned question could you please answer the following:
1) What is the tense of "be" - past tense, present tense or ?? I recognize that it is passive voice....
2) Why would this not be a "hypothetical" situation and hence the usage of "was" would automatically be wrong, no? I guess i'm confused as to what you'd call a hypothetical situation [which requires the need for If i were (Vs using was) you....] and why isnt the hypothetical case applicable here.

Hi all, my doubt is, 1) Isn't excelling at sports a complex gerund? For example, drinking of the water. 2) Are complex gerunds always in the from of an Of-phrase?
(1). Complex gerund is "The excelling at sports" and not "excelling at sports". Furthermore,
Often the construction of CG is "Article -Ing Preposition", but you cannot generalize it( This answers your second doubt)\
Excelling at sports is a simple gerund because we can use it as:
I am excelling at sports
Simple gerunds are Verb-like as shown above.
Complex gerunds are noun-like that is why when we want to adhere to parallelism , we make Complex Gerund parallel to action nouns not the simple gerunds parallel to action nouns.
Hope that helps!
