18. Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson. Pauline Pfeiffer. Martha Gelhom. and Mary Welsh --were
strong and interesting women
, very different from the often pallid women who populate his novels.

Each as a subject will need a singular verb so each --were/women--all S-V mismatches

(A) Each of Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--were strong and interesting women,S-V ERROR
(B) Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhorn, and Mary Welsh--each of them Hemingway's
wives--were strong and, interesting women,S-V Agreement error
(C) Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary Welsh--were all
strong and interesting women,--correct sent structure and S-V match
(D) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--each a wife of Hemingway, was women--was S-V error
(E) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--every one of Hemingway's wives were.noun --pronoun mismatch ie pronoun everyone (singular) is used for women (plural). and everyone of Hemingway's wives were--is non-nonsensical


19. In addition to having more protein -than wheat does, the protein in rice is higher quality than that in wheat,
with more of the amino acids essential to the human diet.

In addition to having more protein -than wheat does..who has that excess protein? you need the item being compared to wheat (ie rice) at the beginning of the sentence

(A) the protein in rice is higher quality than that in
(B) rice has protein of higher quality than that in--right comparsion b/w protein found in wheat and thar in rice
(C) the protein in rice is higher in quality than it is in
(D) rice protein is higher in quality than it is in
(E) rice has a protein higher in quality than wheat--illogical comparison (protein compared to wheat)

Thanks for a quick reply. IS 14 Q--D (estimated to be). I was confused :roll: between estimated to be vs estimated as (in spite of doing this question before ..somewhere.. will explain these


I could guess ur mistake
Take Away

Estimated to be is correct idiom.. IMO Estimated as unidiomatic ..Estimated at is correct only if the author talks about the place where the estimation was done....

Hope that helps!!

hey
you are wrong in your exlanation of Q 18 option B
There is no S- V ambiguity its absolutely fine to mention A,B and C each were....
but its wrong to mention Each A,B and C were....It should be singular...Thats a take away from here..Moreover Here the mistake is with placement of Modifier "Strong and intersted should modify the character as it is modifying the noun present here hence it must be placed close to the noun" In GMAt placement of modifier for noun is very important......it should be close to the noun.....But same is not the case with Verb..You may refer the OA if possible or i will post ..Nowhere it is mentioned about S-V error in Option B....
Hope that helps

Native American burial sites dating back 5,000 years indicate that the residents of Maine at that time were
part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people.

(A) were part of a widespread culture of Algonquian-speaking people
(B) had been part of a widespread culture of people who were Algonquian-speaking=TENSE Error- We need past perfect tense only to show the time gap between two past events (if once occurs before the other) , this sentence does not need that since 2 events are not being described or compared
(C) were people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking--you don't need both the words residents and people as both signify the same group/persons and culture cannot be Algonquian speaking but the people are
(D) had been people who were part of a widespread culture that was Algonquian-speaking. same TENSE Error as B and culture cannot be Algonquian speaking but the people are
(E) were a people which had been part of a widespread, Algonquian-speaking culture--this will read as -- 'residents of Maine at that time were a people'-- , you don't need both the words residents and people. moreover TENSE error 'had been part of' indicates that the people/residents had belonged to the Algonquian-speaking culture sometime in the past

So A


Just adding to your explanation why is "Had " not the correct usage....

Mark the work "Indicate" that means someone is talking about a past even in the present time, hence if the later coming up event (yet to be discussed ) in the argument is in past it must be Simple past.

Hope that helps!!

difference b/w estimated at and estimated to be

Estimated at is used when we want to modify Nouns , bcoz 'at' is a preposition and should be followed by a noun
eg- The age of the sculpture is estimated at 300 years (noun)

Estimated to be can be used for other constructions
eg--the sculpture is estimated to be 300 yrs old

(C) Hemingway's wives--Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary Welsh--were all
strong and interesting women,--correct sent structure and S-V match
(D) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--each a wife of Hemingway, was women--was S-V error
(E) Strong and interesting women—Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhom, and Mary
Welsh--every one of Hemingway's wives were.noun --pronoun mismatch ie pronoun everyone (singular) is used for women (plural). and everyone of Hemingway's wives were--is non-nonsensical



hey
you are wrong in your exlanation of Q 18 option B
There is no S- V ambiguity its absolutely fine to mention A,B and C each were....
but its wrong to mention Each A,B and C were....It should be singular...Thats a take away from here..Moreover Here the mistake is with placement of Modifier "Strong and intersted should modify the character as it is modifying the noun present here hence it must be placed close to the noun" In GMAt placement of modifier for noun is very important......it should be close to the noun.....But same is not the case with Verb..You may refer the OA if possible or i will post ..Nowhere it is mentioned about S-V error in Option B....
Hope that helps



----------------------------------------
Consider Kudos, If my post helped!!!!!



The OA doesn't mention disagreement


well i meant was the pronoun each couldn't refer back to wives (pl)...women (pl). so it should be pronoun disagreement, sorry for the mistake. I don't have the og 10 so don't know the official explanation. one more thing wrong with B is ----Hadley Richardson, Pauline Pfeiffer, Martha Gelhorn, and Mary Welsh--each of them Hemingway's
wives--were strong and, interesting women (them is not needed) a, b, and c each of Hemingway's ............would be correct
