B is a gmat trap (fake that parallelism) I will point that in a bit.

Convinced is "persuasive" form of belief. It means very sure. Remember the subjunctive? Does it use should / would??

"that parallelism" works like this :
that............and that...........

E.g convinced that .............. and that.......
However look at the meaning. The use of "and" disintegrates the old sentence where you were talking about "social work". suddenly started talking about "student". Edith Abbott will be very unhappy :-D

What are you convinced about if I disintegrate the sentence into two parts -

social work education should be in the university - still not convinced, I need more explanation !
where students could be offered a broad range of courses dealing with social issues. ---> that is the evidence I need for being convinced.

Common sense overrides any grammar rules (parallelism) :wink:

I selected B, because of "belonged in" >> Thought was that the wrong idiom usage in D weighs over the wrond conjuntion "and" used to connect the sub-ordinate clauses :(.

Please clarify.


Belong in is a correct idiom when trying to express something being in it's right place.

C - while wrong phrase usage
B - and that - wrong phrase
D - where describes the university - correct usage (less flawed)

Hence D

IMO it is D. The choice was between B and D.

B. that social work education should be in the university, and that - The second 'That' makes the statement wordy, secondly the subject was 'Convinced' a strong word that refers to solidity but the choice B follows up with the word 'Should' that refers to 'might be' a probable scenario. There is a Logic mismatch, hence RULED OUT!

D. that social work education belonged in the university, where - First - Convinced is followed by 'that social work education BELONGED...'! Solid statement. Second- where modified the University which is absolutely logical in structure. - Correct

D it is...

Can anyone still explain why, if at all, we are overlooking the incorrectness of "belong in"???

I am pretty sure that in some other question, we would have out right rejected an answer choice because of the presence of "boleng in"!!!

Thanks
