I believe the correct answer is D. The tenses agree in D better than in E.

Nah, has to be (E) because (D) says "alive" not "live"

I agree. IMO not all =( All -1 or more) ==some . If we replace not all with some of, it renders a whole different meaning.

in D


Communist party conference Moscow proceedings
What the hell is this? Just does not make any sense to me.

I believe they are the same. E is clearer though.

Isn't A passive and wordy compared to E ?. The sentence means that although not all proceedings were carried live, the people still were able to see enough. I don't think the meaning changes between A and E.

Agree with A.

C and D are out for using "alive".
B distorts the sentence structure. Hence, out.

E changes the meaning by using "not" in the beginning.

The following example may help understand this better.

All my friends are not alcoholic (means none are alcoholic).
Not all my friends are alcoholic (means some are alcoholic).

your point is well taken. Now, we look at the rest of the part of the question stem, which says that the audience has seen a great deal of the coverage. The only way it can happen is if some of the proceedings must have been carried out live. Is there no typo with alive in D?

I definitively settle on E!

The real choice is between A and E, in my view.

(A) all the proceedings of the Communist party conference held in Moscow were not carried
live although this is correct, E puts the contrast much clearly and early on
(B) all the Communist party conference's Moscow proceedings were not carried live a string of noun modifiers makes it very awckward
(C) all the Communist party conference Moscow proceedings have not been carried alive same as above
(D) not all the Communist party conference Moscow proceedings have been carried alive putting "not" early on is good, but modifiers issue is still not resolved
(E) not all the proceedings of the Communist party conference held in Moscow were carried live puts "not" early on, which is great. Solves modifier awkwardness via "of" phrase

definitely between A and E.

both are gramatically correct.
both have different meanings.

As per the context.. E makes sense.

E)
Although not all proceedings (some proceedings) were carried live, Soviet audiences have seen a great deal of coverage.
-- If they have seen a greal of coverage,,.. they must see atlease one proceeding. right? :lol:
A)
Although no proceedings were carried live, Soviet audiences have seen a great deal of coverage.

If they are no proceedings.. how can Soviet audiences have seen a great deal of coverage??


E makes sense.

Even if there is typo in word "alive" in option D, this option is distorted with the use of "Communist party conference Moscow proceedings"

Thank you.

I am unclear why "were" is correct and why not "have been" as in option D.
