Judge Bonham denied a motion to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to a hotel.

(A) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them to
(B) that would have allowed members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of confined to
(C) under which memebrs of the jury are allowed to go home at the end of each day instead of confining them in
(D) that would allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than confinement in
(E) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than be confined to

[Reveal] Spoiler: OE
OG Verbal Review 2, SC#93

Parallelism; Logical predication

The logic of this sentence has two possible options for the members of the jury: they can go home or be confined to a hotel. The first option is expressed using the infinitive to go home; the second option should use the parallel form (to understood) be confined. Since the members of the jury are not doing the confining themselves, the passive form must be used. The construction x instead of y, when x and y are infinitives, is clumsy; the idiomatic construction x rather than y is better here. Both constructions require x and y to be parallel.

(A) The passive form to be confined is required. To allow members of the jury . . . to confne them illogically indicates that the jurors are doing the confining.
(B) The infinitive form to be confned is required, rather than the past participle. The sentence is awkward and wordy.
(C) Members of the jury is the illogical object in confning them. Confining is not parallel to to go home.
(D) The noun confinement is not parallel to to go home.
(E) Correct. Be confined to uses the infinitive form just as to go home does; the to before be confined is understood and does not need to be repeated. The x rather than y construction is appropriately used in this sentence.

The correct answer is E.

Two idioms at play here: motion to... and rather than...

That leaves E.

nice one guys, OA is E

I screwed this one up and took A because I was thinking:


to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day instead of to confine them

verb paralellism

But x rather than y is better.

We should the infinitive form "to allow." Eliminate B, C and D. This sentance has a subjunctive tone to it.... therefore I pick E.

E, I'd say. Less wordy than others, and yet the "confined" part sounds good.

rather than is better than instead of

So narrow down to D and E.

D has more wordy. (like confinement)

E is concise.

OA is E

OE:

In this sentence, members of the jury are presented with two options: they may (1) go home or (2) be confined to a hotel. The rejected motion would have allowed them to do the first rather than [to] suffer the second.
Members of the jury must be the logical subject of both options, and both must be expressed in parallel form, that is, as infinitive clauses. E, the best choice, observes these requirements. In A and C, the phrase members
of the jury is not the logical subject of the second option, to confine them or confining them, since jury members are not doing the confining. In B and D, confined and confinement are not infinitives and thus do not parallel to go in the first option.

As usual, late but (E)

(E) to allow members of the jury to go home at the end of each day rather than be confined to

In this Q...rathar than X is much better than instead of X

Hence A, B & C - Eliminate.

Between D & E.
D - "rather than confinement in" - Not a great construction. Its wordy

Hence E is the answer.

Re: SC: Judge and Jury [#permalink] New post 26 Jul 2007, 16:26
I think the hardest part of this question is the parallelism. I initially start the parallelism with (to go home...). I guess the trick is to look how the second half starts and work backwards to see where the first one should start.
