I want a suggestion regarding looking into the solutions of Official GMAT 12 Ed. Sentence Correction questions.

All the explanations of Sentence Correction Questions in OG seems to go overboard ; All sort of jargons of Grammar are used to explain the solution.

I completed MGMAT SC Guide , but still i STRUGGLE to even read the explanations given in OG for SC Questions

Could one please suggest whether my fundamentals are too weak to understand the explanations given or is it a common phenomenon.

Also , if there are better explanations available for those questions , where are they available ?

Thanks !

Sometimes the explanations in the OG are not very clear.
MGMAT has a math OG companion. Don't think they have a verbal one out yet (or not even sure if they are planning to release one).

Probably best bet/shot is to search here.

An error log is key to overcoming obstacles.

It's very common for people to run into "walls" when prepping and are not sure how to overcome obstacles.

An error log helps you identify the "what" and "why" regarding selecting incorrect answers. Simply reading prep books and doing problems is useful, but if you are unaware of "why" you're answering problems incorrectly, an error log is one of the only tools that can help (of course a tutor or 1 on 1 prep can substitute, but most people do no opt for that option for obvious cost reasons).
