I am curious if the use of "in that" on the GMAT is prohibited. I have seen some posts saying that "in that" is preferred to because.http://www.gmatclub.com/forum/t51883
However, in the OG it states that "in that" is largely out of date and means "as much as." I can't recall the problem number.
I also have seen some posts saying that "in that" is always incorrect.
Any help would be awsome!
I checked this "in that" stuff in OG12
and you are correct regarding the "in that". It is OG12
, Q 59.
Exactly, OG says that "This sentence depends on using the correct conjunction to join two independent clauses. In that is a conjunction that means inasmuch as; because in that has largely gone out of use, it is considered stilted and overly formal."
But, I have a subperb explanation for the difference between "in that" and because on this forum. This will clarify the concept.www.urch.com/forums/faqs/580-gmat-sc-because-vs.html
Though the above link says that, "in that" will be mostly the correct choice, this seems not to be true in light of the question present at this link sc-gmatprep-because-vs-in-that-52213.html
If you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of anybody! Cowards do that and You're better than that!
The path is long, but self-surrender makes it short; the way is difficult, but perfect trust makes it easy.
Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING.
Failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.
