The housing prices in various counties, some of them at significant rates, are increasing just as the interest rates are, yet being still low enough to avoid an inflationary effect.

I said B. Are you sure the OA is A? A is such a jumbled mess, and if nothing else, "yet being still low enough" is horrible. B is the only choice which is grammatical.

The original says - housing prices in counties - while choices B and E say housing prices of counties, as if the counties themselves are up for sale. Wrong intent and so let’s drop them.

C and D – Where is the mention of counties in the choices? What a miss?

A.is what is left out; We have to accept it grudgingly as the tolerable among the bads, although the sore created by the expression yet, being, still, low and enough is hard to heal

Well explained. A it is. I went for D but then realized the answer is missing "in counties". +1 for you

"The housing prices in various counties, some of them at significant rates, are increasing just as the interest rates are, yet being still low enough to avoid an inflationary effect."

This is not grammatically correct. Where did this question come from?

Happy New Year everyone! Before I get started on this post, and well, restarted on this blog in general, I wanted to mention something. For the past several months...

It’s quickly approaching two years since I last wrote anything on this blog. A lot has happened since then. When I last posted, I had just gotten back from...

Happy 2017! Here is another update, 7 months later. With this pace I might add only one more post before the end of the GSB! However, I promised that...
