I was just going through the MGMAT SC book the other day and it said that the GMAT test-makers, aware of this common 'being-is-always-wrong' theory, have found ways to incorporate 'being' in correct answer choices as well. Don't be too quick to dismiss it if you think you are in 700-plus territory.


You are right.
I faced with at least three questions from official guide and gmatprep in which "being" was in correct answer choice.

I did not choose A because I think A makes split error with "for example" between "having" and "been"
Please help me to explain my querry.

Having been is parallel in A.Remove the non-essential clause in commas and check it.

Way too many typos for this question to be good for studying.

Some patients who do not respond therapies of depression may simply have received inadequate treatment, having, for example, been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low to be effective or having been taken off a drug too soon.

The correct problem stem should change "as" to "at". I discarded A and didn't like any other options due to the typo.

A -- having, for example, been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low to be effective or having been
B -- having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being
C -- as, for example, having too low of a dosage of prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being
D -- when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage for it to be effective, or were
E -- for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been



Answer: A
Perfectly parallel - 'having been...or...having been'

Tough question. Chose A because once you remove for example, it has the best parallelism of all.

Hi All,
Cant vouch for "A" becasue i'm not sure what does it mean by "[highlight]a drug as a dosage too low[/highlight]"? I agree we've parallelism in Option A.
How about Option "E" ? I understand "When" is incorrect but will "E" be better option if we replace
"When" with "Either" -
for example, [highlight]when[/highlight]they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been
for example, [highlight]EITHER[/highlight]they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been

Let me know your thought.
Peace!

having been prescribed || having been taken
There is no problem in (A), so (A) should be the answer.

A -- having, for example, been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low to be effective or having been
B -- having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being => the dosage was too low cannot cause have drug prescription ineffective. Using "because" is wrong
C -- as, for example, having too low of a dosage of prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being
D -- when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage for it to be effective, or were => using "for it to be effective" is wordy.
E -- for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been => "been" has no helping verb


Quite confusing question. Got A after 2 min.
