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"

The answer is A.

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

ans: A

A -- having, for example been prescribed a drug as a dosage too low to be effective or having been ...PARALLEL AND PARTICIPLE PHRASE CONTUNING THE COMMA..CORRECT
B -- having, for example, a drug prescription that was ineffective because the dosage was too low, or being
BEING is ICORRRECT..HAS TO BE PAST PERFECT CO
C -- as, for example, having too low of a dosage of prescribed drug for it to be effective, or being
SENTENCE CANNOT START WITH AS AFTER COMMA
D -- when they have, for example, been prescribed too low a drug dosage for it to be effective, or were
WHEN CANNO START A SETNCE ATER COMMA
E -- for example, when they have a drug prescription with a dosage too low to be effective, or been

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

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.
