Hi, I have a question regarding the relationship between original sentence and the other options in the SC problems.
Some SC text books tell that test taker must check original sentence (A) as given and regard original sentence as the main one, prior to other options. This means, if there are two possible options within (B) - (E) that are both grammatically correct, test taker should select the one that is closer to the meaning of original sentence (A).
However, I once heard from the GMAT teacher once recent GMAT SC questions does not provide such kind of question anymore. Teacher said, recent GMAT questions only tests whether test taker is capable of determining right answer from (A) to (E), and thus test taker do not have to regard (A) as prior to other options, but may regard (A) to (E) as equally possible options.
I am not aware of this matter, so it would be glad if someone could tell the truth regarding recent GMAT SC questions..
