A, B,C are definitely out - I am interested in discussion between options D and E



(E)? for correct meaning
parents discipline male children as they would (discipline) daughters.

because they(parents) may or may not have daughter. More like hypothetical situation.

(D) cant be correct because it conveys that Parents have daughter.



CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG.

D assumes that the parents are already disciplining daughters .. but the 'sense' of the sentence talks about a hypothetical situation about how those same parents who have male children 'would' treat daughters if they were to have them.

Hi can you explain the above question ?


Hi mate.

Popular child psychologists have advocated that parents discipline male children similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters.

(A) similarly to the fashion in which they discipline
Wrong. comparison "male children" vs "the fashion" (parents discipline X (male children) similarly to Y (the fashion) <== wrong)

(B) in the same manner that they would use with
Wrong. comparison grammar. "in the same X that ...." is wrong. The correct structure should be "in the same manner as ....."

(C) like they would handle
Wrong. "Like" only + noun/noun phrase. [Like + clause] is always wrong.

(D) as they discipline
Wrong.
- If you pick D, you assume EVERY parents have both boy and girl. That's wrong meaning. The correct meaning is that Parents discipline boys as they would (unsure future) discipline girls (if they have).
- Good writing usually avoids repeating main verb (discipline) in one sentence. If the verb is the same, you should omit it, instead you should use auxiliary verb (do/did/will/would).

(E) as they would
Correct.
- (As + clause) is correct grammar.
- E conveys good meaning; in addition, E avoids repeating main verb (discipline). The structure of E is: parents discipline male children as they would (discipline) girls.

Hope it's clear.

yeahhh... I remeber this one. I took D because it seemed to be the most ||. But E is the answer. Can anyone provide a clear explanation?

give you points for imagination, but your explanation makes little sense.

whats the relationship between the hypothetical situation and
"would" ?

the answer : zip

(E) for me.
(D) sounds like they are disciplining boys at the same time as they discipline girls.

^ E ^

D seems to be ||, however, "as" seems ambigious there. It may mean "while" as well. So, I choose E.

E. Subjunctive mood again, but it does NOT sound good without the word 'discipline'!

E. as they would



"advocated that" x to y as x to z

parents (x) discipline (to) make children (y)

as

they (x) would (to) daughters (z)....E, though I think it should be "as they would discipline" daughters.

D implies that parents discipline male children while ie, at the same time, they discipline daughters.

I don't understand the OR (official reasoning) on this. Please explain your answer and why you did not choose the other answers. I'll give the OA and the OR a little later.

My answer is E. While D is close, discipline is not required to be repeated again in this case. It is implied in E.

Answer E

"Look for clarity and brevity. (E), is best: none of the other, longer choices is any clearer. .......... (D) changes the sentence's meaning.

I picked (E) too. I don't see how (D) changes the sentence's meaning. Anyone?
