A. but not with other nonhospital services where 20 percent of
the costs must be paid by beneficiaries. "with" must be "of" in order to refer to "the full cost"; relative pronoun "where" should be used for tangible places

B. but not of other nonhospital services, making beneficiaries pay 20 percent of the costs. "making" should modify nonhospital services and not the entire preceding sentence; participle also attaches a meaning of cause and effect, so the modifier is illogical

C . but not of other nonhospital services, for which beneficiaries
must pay 20 percent of the costs. OK, "for which" is trap

D. which is unlike other nonhospital services in that 20 percent
of the costs must be paid by beneficiaries."which" creates an illogical comparison between costs of home health care and other nonhospital services; "of" is needed so that a proper comparison can be made

E. which is unlike other nonhospital services that make beneficiaries pay 20 percent of the costs "which" creates an illogical comparison between costs of home health care and other nonhospital services; "of" is needed so that a proper comparison can be made
pay 20 percent of the costs.

Agree with age. Parellelism is the error.
".. full cost of... but not of.."

Is C the answer?

C

B is wrong - it makes it unclear what clause the 20% payment refers to, the home care, or non-hospital service.

IMO C

Narrowed it down to B and C for || ism ...

in B the -ing form ideally modifies a verb where as we are looking to modify non hospital services

"for which" makes that clear.

Well after reading your post i guess you are asking about the answer with complete grammar... So the answer C is completely perfect because it is giving a complete sense..

i checked the web .. OA is indeed C

i think the problem with B is that sentence discusses the costs, which not covered by US govt, not the action that makes them pay 20%. so the correct choice is C. In B, 'making' focuses on the action.

Why do you think that B is incorrect.
The united states government COVERS ,the full cost of hhc but not of x, ........--->we must use a word to imply an I ongoing action. A "must pay" poses as a rule.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

IMHO. Choice B is a bit confusing. That is, the modifier can be taken to be modifying the entire clause. i.e It can mean something like "To cover the full cost for home health care but no hospital services, Medicare makes the beneficiaries pay 20%." As you see from the structure itself, this is not what the sentence wants to convey. The "paying 20%" modifier is meant for only "hospital services" and hence "which" or in this case "for which" is a better option.

This is my reasoning although I think an expert's opinion would shed better light.


Kudos Please... If my post helped.

,MAKING


The clause in GREEN is MAKING as per choice (B).

What is wrong in that?

As I have mentioned in my previous post, making should NOT modify the entire clause... The additional charges are ONLY for the non hospital services and not for the entire program..
