processing steel scrap [#permalink] New post 03 Jun 2006, 06:58
In contrast to large steel plants that take iron ore through all the steps needed to produce several different kinds of steel, processing steel scrap into a specialized group of products has enabled small mills to put capital into new technology and remain economically viable.

(A) processing steel scrap into a specialized group of products has enabled small mills to put capital into new technology and remain
(B) processing steel scrap into a specialized group of products has enabled small mills to put capital into new technology, remaining
(C) the processing of steel scrap into a specialized group of products has enabled small mills to put capital into new technology, remaining
(D) small mills, by processing steel scrap into a specialized group of products, have been able to put capital into new technology and remain
(E) small mills, by processing steel scrap into a specialized group of products, have been able to put capital into new technology and remained

I choose E but OA was D...
plz explain it

E is not parallel. So D it is.

It has to be between D and E and we are comparing large steel plants to small mills.

D should be it because of tense (use of remain) as the mills are economically viable now.

Will go with D.
D and E both fix the modifier problem. E is not || …….. have been able to put capital into new technology and remained. Whereas D uses the right tense and is ||

This is how I thought

A, B & C - Eliminate

Left with D & E

E - Eliminate - changes the context of the sentence. Seems to say that the small mills were economically viable but are no longer economically viable.

Hence D should be the answer.
