E is correct because the meaning is pointed out on the fact that the band gives away its CD economically (cheaply), in other words for few dollars NOT in an economic way (cheap)



if here cheaply=economically then it does make sense. ty

9) The villagers leave their homes at the stroke of dawn to hike six miles up steep, dangerous trails to the forests, to be returning by late afternoon with huge loads of firewood on their backs.

(B) forests, and it is late afternoon by the time that they return

I believe option D misses a comma after forests.

Because - Once Mocked by Critics is a modifier, not a verb.

Sachin Tendulkar mocked by critics for not taking retirement is still creating records.

Here, S.R.T is subject, and what he is doing : he is creating records. Rest is Fluff. Moreover when ed is followed by Passive Voice (i.e followed by "BY"), that construction is Verb ed modifier. Ask, who is mocking whom??

Its Critics who are mocking SRT. Right. So Action -> Mocking is done by Critics, not by S.R.T. Hence, it is not an active verb.

So, in E, we have Run on Sentence, missing verb.
Makes Sense.

3) Studying the art for several years, practicing difficult notes every day, and frequent performances has enabled the young pianist to secure a contract with the country's biggest music company.

(A) and frequent performances has enabled the young pianist
(B) as well as frequent performances have enabled the young pianist
(C) and performing frequently, the young pianist has been enabled
(D) and frequent performances have enabled the young pianist
(E) and performing frequently enabled the young pianist

If passive structure of option C is the only issue with it, then I will choose option C instead of option E. As option E takes the whole meaning of the sentence into the past tense, while it is in present tense in the original sentence.
Am I making sense? Please correct me if I am wrong. :)

1) Accounting and cost-management are an example of financial fields that have shortages in staffing.

(A) are an example of financial fields that
(B) are examples of financial fields that
(C) are examples of a financial field that
(D) exemplify a financial field which
(E) exemplify financial fields where they

I think the word "field" with financial is itself making it a collective singular noun and hence, there is no need to use the word "fields".

i think that in order to show that there are more than one fields, we will have to use fields instead of just field, like i did just now :)

13) The principal, having increased the number of teachers in the school, is being
accused of maintaining a poor ratio of students to a teacher.

(A) The principal, having increased the number of teachers in the school, is being
(B) The principal, increasing the number of teachers in the school, however is still
being
(C) Although the principal has begun to increase the number of teachers in the
school, is still being
(D) Although the principal has increased the number of teachers in the school, he
is still being
(E) Although the principal has increased the number of teachers in the school, yet
he is being






Official Answer (OA) – D
Concepts Tested – Meaning, Redundancy
The original sentence looks grammatically correct but fails to make logical sense.
If the principal has increased the number of teachers in the school, then why is
he being accused of maintaining a poor ratio of students to a teacher? Thus
eliminate A

B - The modifying phrase starting with ‘increasing’ cannot possibly be used to
modify the principal because it is not the principal who is increasing

C - The use of ‘has begun’ distorts the meaning because the original sentence
suggests that the principal has already increased the number of teachers. Also
the subject (principal or he) needs to be repeated in the clause after the comma.

Between D and E, the usage of ‘although’ and ‘yet’ together in E is a redundancy.
Hence D is the best answer.
