Split infinitive example..

"to increase " is the infinitive..

we cannot split this up..

only C and D follow this rule.

In C..use of "which" is wrong..."which" should logically refer to a noun..in

this case ..housing integration.

But its the "increase" that reduces any future need for busing...not the

housing integration.

Also In C, reduces is incorrect here...we need reduce ..to agree with the

" increases in housing integration"

D is best.

thanks

"increases" is simply a noun in this sentence. there is no infinitive.

yes, you are right.

What does "which" refer to in A?

i dont think " which " has a clear referent...

"which" should refer to " increases"

In A, "which" can refer to either " increases" OR "housing integration"

mbamantra, could you explain the parallelism issue in D?

Official answer is A.

I think "which" references "integration" because is the closer noun.

Why do you think C is wrong? Is it maybe because integration should be closer to "which" than "significantly" ?

Martin,

The "increases" in housing integration ...."reduce" the need

for busing..

"which" should refer to " increases"

Praet:

C reads: "increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces"

"which" should reference "integration", that way "reduces" is ok

My question is: the fact that we have "significantly" between "which" and "integration" could make this answer wrong? If not.. why is it wrong then?

Thougths??

sorry martin, i was still debating the answer...i didnt see your comment about C.

anyways...i think significantly should not be a problem...since which

refers to a noun... in C , the noun is HOUSING INTEGRATION...

IT is the INCREASES in housing integration that may Reduce the

need for busing...

C changes the intended meaning of the sentence...

see it yet?

But if "which" references "increases" then A (the official answer) should be wrong because it uses "reduces" instead of "reduce".

D looks correct to me. Everything seems to refer back to "plans"

A employs plural INCREASES--sounds a bit awkward.
D is a real alternative.
