Getting no clue about right one. pls help


A, B and C tells us that Japan is a culture which is incorrect. (Japan is a country).
D and E states- Japan's is a culture which means, Japan has a culture which is characterized by (accomodation and contraint- use proper form).
Between (D) and (E), (D) is parallel.
In (E), "of a system of forms, etiquette" breaks teh parallelism.

A country cannot be culture of accomodation, eliminate A, B, C

'of a system of forms, etiquette, and images ' is awkward in E

1. "making" correctly modifies "Japan", A is the best
2. "which" modifies "images" rather than "Japan", making B awkard, B out
3. "making" clearly modifies "images" rather than "Japan", making C awkward too, C out
4. possesion "Japan's" is awkard and "that" cannot refer to "Japan", D out
5. E has the same error as D and B, E out

Seems D is least bothered one but do not see this structure is a correct one. "Japan's is a culture ......." in D and E meant waht? What is Japan's?

"Japan is a culture .............." in A is not correct.
B also says that japan is a culture - wrong.
C is also similar to B.
D says "Japan's is a culture ........." ok. keep it.
E is not parallel. Japan's is a ...... of x, of y, z and w.

Hi mates,

IMO D

A, B and C out: Japan is not a culture but a country

D and E: "Japan's clearly refers to Japanesh culture in this context.

E breaks the //ism with "of a system of forms"

OA and Source?

Cheers

I'll go with D

Sure 'Japan's' does sound a bit awkward. But A, B,C are saying 'Japan is a culture'

Looks evil to me

Japan is a culture? Whew! No

Japan's is a culture??

What is the possessive referring to here? Is Japan's implicitly referring to Japan's culture. How do we determine that?
