Last week local shrimpers held a news conference to take some credit for the resurgence of the rare Kemp's ridley turtle, saying that their compliance with laws requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets protect adult sea turtles.

A. requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp nets protect --> the whole modifier requiring that turtle-excluder devices be on shrimp is too wordy to modify for laws, single noun their compliance is not suitable with protect
B. requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting -->the best: requiring turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is a more simple participle phrase modifier for laws than that of A. Besides, is protecting is compliant with their compliance
C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect -->same error of A
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting -->to + Inf here does not clearly modify for which Noun and betterly idiomatically modifies for another to + inf than a Noun. Also, are protecting is grammatical incorrect with their compliance
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting -->same error of D

Also for C to be correct, both compliance and protenct should both be either singular or plural...I'll choose B

C. that require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets protect
D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


B.


Is that is incorrect in A?

I rejected A because of the usage of protect, it should be protects I think for singular (compliance)
If given a choice A with protects, will it be incorrect?

D. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets are protecting
E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


I am not sure but does this sentence falls under the subjunctive mood? If yes, then I guess A is the correct one. I am kinda of confused. Any suggestions ?

Anyway whats the OA ?

E. to require turtle-excluder devices on shrimp nets is protecting


Note: 'protect' needs the verb form for the subject 'compliance', so should be protects.

A, C, D are gone
D and E are gone for the "to require", which is incorrect.

Only B left

I think that is correct in A, only verb form of protect is incorrect.



Why did you rule out C.I think C is the ans.What is the OA?

Lets get rid of middlemen as far as possible.

"They wanted to take credit for A saying that their compliance with B requiring C 'is' protecting D"

compliance is the subject in second half, so verb must be singular. either "IS protecting" (progressive) or "protects" (simple present)
thus, A, C & D out

Among B and E, "laws requiring .." is better than "laws to require"
Therefore B

If you see in the second part of sentence, the subject is the 'compliance' that is singular and requires verb form 'protects', making C incorrect option.

Please explain your answers. Thanks.


B for me

D and E are out : distort the meaning.
require should modify laws. To require seems to ambiguously modify compliance
A and C are out : compliance ... + singular verb

IMO E

a and b not possible....wrongly used verb
between d n e....d not possible, is should be used instead of are

i m not sure about c but it lacks parallelism,

m quite weak in SC, so guys pls throw some input.

We have subject/verb agreement error (A), (C) and (D). Subject of the clause is "their compliance" - so verb should be in singular form; "protect" and "are protecting" are wrong

It leaves us with (B) and (E). Here the major problem is to choose the correct idiom: whether "laws requiring . . " or "laws to require . . ".

I consider "laws requiring" idiomatic and hence prefer (B).

Re: Sentence Correction Question - how to approach this one [#permalink] New post 17 Feb 2010, 13:04
That is correct. singular noun compliance would need singlular verb protecting and not protect which eliminates
A and C

In D it says are protecting which again becomes plural and does not match with singular noun compliance

that leaves us with B and E

E means as if laws are reqd to for the devices and not for protecting turtle so the choice B

Re: OG 12 SC Q133 [#permalink] New post 03 May 2010, 11:24
i also picked C initially but maybe its B due to the parallelism of "saying" "requiring" "protecting". Another way I look at it is that it is less wordy and less awkward than using 2 "that"s in the sentence...

can anyone else add here?

Re: OG 12 SC Q133 [#permalink] New post 04 May 2010, 04:09
I think C is incorrect because the sentence uses a plural verb 'protect' with a singular subject ' compliance'.

Originally chosen C overlooking the subject-verb agreement.
B should be the answer.

subject is compliance -> singular -> eliminate A,C,D
choice is between requiring (B) or to require (D).
B is the right one as "compliance with laws to require ...." creates a run on the sentece....

Many good comments above, but I don't think anyone pointed out that laws

"to require"

would be laws that are not yet implemented. So you can not be in compliance with laws that are not laws.

this eliminates D & E

Re: SC GMATPrep 1 Shrimp [#permalink] New post 02 Aug 2010, 04:27
But the idiom is either:
i) laws requiring X to Y
or
ii) laws requiring that X Y

I dont see how B matches this idiom
Could anybody clarify?
thanks.
