Although the square root of a negative number has no real value, it is not necessarily true that equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable

A) equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable B) equations involving such imaginary numbers have no practical applications - CORRECT C) equations involving these inapplicable imaginary numbers are practical - misplaced modifier D) equations involving imaginary numbers such as these are inapplicable practically - awkward E) there is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these - lengthy and awkward

B is the best option.

It contains 'such' not like and it is short and concise and is in active voice also. _________________

these, this those must be followed by noun so A and D are out. C is just reversed the intended meaning. E is just wordy. so B wins _________________

E) There is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these ----- there is no practical applications– SV error: it should be - there are no practical applications, since the real subject applications is plural _________________

Although the square root of a negative number has no real value, it is not necessarily true that equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable

A) equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable

B) equations involving such imaginary numbers have no practical applications

-I eliminated options C, D and E for the following reasons. After eliminating them, I was left with A and B. B is more precise, and clear in meaning than B is.

C) equations involving these inapplicable imaginary numbers are practical

-This option changes the meaning by making the numbers inapplicable, Eliminated

D) equations involving imaginary numbers such as these are inapplicable practically

-Practically inapplicable is much better than inapplicable practically

E) there is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these

- Wordy. "As these" is an unnecessary add-on _________________

I could come down to a and b but chose a.Isn't these referring to the noun 'Square root...' and is therefore correct?Or like should only be followed by a Noun,never a pronoun?
