Hi souvik,
I have a query about question # 27 in the said file...
"The Principal, having increased..............students to a teacher"
The correct answer as per the OA is D:
Although the principal has increased the number of teachers in the school, he is still being accused of maintaining a poor ratio of students to a teacher"
Isnt the "still" in this answer choice redundant? since the sentence starts off with "although".. :? :? :?
Please clarify.
regards
soumya



Hi Soumya,
Still can be used in two ways

1. Contrast use: I am new at work, still I am bombarded with assignments. Here still is used to set contrast, similar to although. Although and still (used for contrast), cannot be used together

2. Temporal (to use time: He is still coming to school. This is used to denote time. This can be used with although.

In your sentence the still is used to denote the time AFTER he has increased the number of teachers.

Hope this makes sense.


Dear Souvik,
Thanx a ton for the great explanation! Will keep that in mind! :-D

warm regards

Great work carcass. Really a wonderful compilation and I would go as far to say that in many respects it can be as useful as solving OG itself. I went through some questions and even these helped me to gain some more conceptual clarity. Kudos !! :)
