A : "was charged with ... and with"
B: "was charged with and administrative"
C: "was being charged that he taught"
D: "was charged with both false doctrine ..."
E: "was teaching false doctrine and ..."

C/D/E drop off due to other errors.

Of the choices A/B, I think the second "with" is implied and therefore we can go with B.

Answer: B

Should be A

Charged with is the idiom, so left with A B and D

can't be B because elipsis implies that X was charged with "teaching adm misconduct"

D changes the meaning

U2lover,
Can you clarify "teaching adm misconduct" in B?

charged with A and B... yes this seems fine BUT... If you delete 2nd WITH you get elipsis, which essentially what follows "WITH" applies to the administrative misconduct

so you get:
charged with teaching false doctrine and [with teaching] administrative misconduct :lol: (I don't think the latter is taught... at least legally :shock: )

hope my reasoning is correct

Between A and B, will go with A; 'charged with' 2 things

a) teaching

b) misconduct

I also am going with A considering the right idiom used, what I do not get how the meaning is changed in D can someone explain

False doctrine teaching vs. teaching false doctrine

D says

anytime you see a change in word placement, you must go with the original... first has emphasis on "false teaching" and 2nd - on "teaching doctrine"

I'll go for A here. I've read the other responses and U2lover's explanation of A over B is spot on.
