Perkins' so "her" is ok.


Jose's room is so messy that his mom calls him a pig.

The above sentence is wrong according to MGMAT.It says him doesnt have an antecedent

Can you explain please

I'm not convinced that parallelism is being tested here. It smells like a trap.

"so X...that Y..." never fails.

Agree with Matt on that , I got C too

E would have been good if it was like this

So dogged .... and so persistent ...... that

I think we need a conjunction to connect both the "So"'s.

Whats the OA ?

C. her lobbying for wage and hour reform persistent, that
D. lobbying for wage and hour reform was so persistent,
E. so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that


Very clear E. In C - the connection established in the non underlined part using So for Dogged is not carried through for Lobbying .. the lobbying must also be qulaigied with a SO PERSISTENT.

E is right. The pronoun her is also right here as it is a possesive pronoun (her) that refers to a possesive antecedant (Frances Perkins’)

In the following sentence

Jose's room is so messy that his mom calls him a pig.

there are two pronouns his and him.

[b]his
is ok - Jose's
him WRONG - Jose[/b]
