Pick D. What is OA?

it can refer to either paint or surface. There is little ambiguity there. So the correct answer will be:
it is necessary to [u]sand the surface and apply primer before you
apply paint to the surface [/u]

E is more clearer. In D it is a bit ambiguous - apply primer where to paint or surface.

Ayushi, if you look at the answer choices given, can you please make sure there are no typos or missed words because choice A does not look anything like hte underlined part.

I thikn its A because the "it" has a clear referrant and A is gramatically correct in every sense.

In order to do X , it is necessary to do Y

From the brutal SC list.

"it" clearly refers to the surface.

B and C are too redundant.

(A) survives.

Some options in the questions are designed to mislead people who have prepared for the exam. Option E is designed for those..I guess..

One more A.

Should be e.
It is not clear what "it" refers to in A, B and C. In D, it is not clear where the primer should be applied.
E for clarity.

Looks like I'm in that list, even though I've hardly started preparing.

I dont see any best options in this. I guess we just have to chose lesser of the 5 evils.

B & C Completely out.
D verbooooose

A & E are two of the better choices
I dont like either but for E 'the surface, apply primer to the surface and then paint it ', no use of pronouns really put me off.

So, A is the last one standing is my answer.

I agree. DE are redundant. No need to write "surface" 3 times in one sentence. BC uses "prime it" instead of "apply prime"

A does not do a great job of showing that sanding comes before applying primer.
