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"..
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!

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 !!

Hi Carcass and Soumya,
I don't understand the OE for answer (E) in question 21. You said this answer is missing a verb, but from what I am concerned, "be" here is the main verb. I am confused, could you please help me?

Thanks~~~

I have a query in Question 54. The Official Answer is given as 'C', but in option C, the pronoun 'his' has no antecedent in the sentence?
Where am I going wrong?

P.S: Great collection guys

Thanks for all the questions. And even more, the explanations.

I am not sure if this is the right place, but I had a doubt about a basic thing.
Hope you can help.

Which of these is correct:
1. I, as well as John, are short.
2. I, as well as John, am short.

I feel 1. but the books say that when "other phrases are used to separate the subject from the verb, these phrases do not affect the verb." So then, logically, "as well as John" should not alter the regular verb "am".
