This question is from Brutal_SCs.doc.

It has many obvious typos, both here and in the word file.

It should be:

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

- "respond to therapies for depression" rather than "respond therapies of depression".
- for example takes a comma after
- "prescribed at a dosage" rather than "prescribed as a dosage"

Hi "being" is always considered as a wrong statement in GMAT....so you can eliminate B and C straight away.

ans: A

Though I'd go for A...here's something slightly off-track...

I think Option D would be correct if the sentence had been - Some patients...may simply have received inadequate treatment when they were prescribed a drug dosage too low to be effective or, were taken off a drug too soon.

What do you think...I'd want to get my concepts right here ...esp. the usage of 'were' for Option D.

If you ommit the 'for example' modifier from A & C you will clearly see that A is correct.

IMO A .... obeys parallelism and hence is the best of all choices

Answer is definitely A but the this question is phrased pretty bad.

Not likely to be seen on GMAT IMO

IMO all choices look awkward. In A, having been is almost always wrong but just for || this makes the correct choice

A.[highlight]having, for example, been prescribed a drug[/highlight][strike]at a dosage too low to be effective[/strike] [highlight]or having been[/highlight] - only this is parallel

I chose the wrong answer because I thought there is no comma in A after FOR EXAMPLE, hence it has to be wrong.
When I checked the questions in GMAT PREP, there was a comma.
So moderators please correct the question and add comma after FOR EXAMPLE in A.

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.
