I think it has tense problem... makes you think sunspots can be present on poles but no one has seen them yet...

Re: SC: Sunspots [#permalink] New post 04 Jun 2009, 18:20
This is Q14 of the OG 12th ed. The OA is A, however:

1. I don't understand the OE of option (C), in that "sighted is not a complete verb".

2. I don't understand the OE of the top paragraph which states "[b]The adjective visible is a complement [/b]and is parallel to the past particle sighted"

Appreciate any form of explanation. Thanks
