Answer to Question 208 Only E, the best choice, clearly states that teratomas consist of tissues such as tooth and bone, and that such tissues are not normally found in the organ with the teratoma. Clear statement of this fact requires the repetition of tissues to establish the appositive--tissues normally found.... Without such repetition, A and B imprecisely state that the tooth and bone, as opposed to the tissues, are not normally found in the affected organ. Choices B and C alter the meaning with the use of like', that is, they suggest that the tissues are not tooth and bone, but only like them. The confused syntax of D states that their composition, not the tissues, is found in the organ.... --------------------------
Can someone explain better "like" vs "such as" in this case because their explaination is weird? Also what is "in that..." anyway?
I don't like any of the answer choices. Here the Author makes comparison between tissues and organs that doesn't make sense. Tissues like/such as tooth and bone is wrong. Because tooth/bone is a organ not a tissue. In other words tooth consists of tissues, but it is not a tissue by itself. Had he said like those of tooth and bone then it would have been ok. What is the source of this question?.
