Even though professional sports leagues may agree that player steroid use is a major problem, posing a threat to the integrity of each league's respective sport, and that immediate action needs to be taken, there is no consensus on the best course of action.
A) Even though professional sports leagues may agree that
B) However much professional sports leagues may agree
C) Agreement exists among professional sports leagues that
D) Despite professional sports leagues may agree that
E) Although professional sports leagues agree
Can anyone please help me to figure out difference between "Even though ", "However" "Despite" and "Although"?
You need that for the essential modifier. So you can get rid of B and E. C changes the level of certainty and thats gone too.
As for A vs C. Even tough is a subordinating conjunction that used for a dependent clause,while Despite is a preposition.
C is wrong because of the way Despite is used. You wouldnt say Despite I like x, I like y better. You would say Even though I like y, I like y better
Ps. Kudos are always welcomed ; )
