I have a doubt in "Meaning-Place Your Words" section from MGMAT book
. Page#22 (4th edition;chapter 2) has the following example:
"WRONG": The council granted the right to make legal petitions TO CITY OFFICIALS
one of the two "RIGHT" options: The right to make legal petitions TO CITY OFFICIALS was granted by the council
.Explanation given for this:
What does the phrase to city officials mean? Did the city officials receive the right to make
legal petitions? Or did someone else receive the right to make petitions to the officials?
Either way, the correct sentence should resolve the ambiguity.
It is still not clear to me. Can anyone please explain what is the difference between above two statements?
