The new contract forbids a strike by the transportation union.
(A) same (B) forbids the transportation union from striking
(C) forbids that there be a strike by the transportation union
(D) will forbid the transportation union from striking
(E) will forbid that the transportation union strikes
i narrowed it to B and D....i will go with B though, hmmm...not too sure why, gut feeling...although i do not necessarily see a problem with D..
i think D has a slightly different meaning than B....it's not clear whether we are talking about the contract in the present tense (if we were i would go with B) or are we talking about a contract in development and discussing its future restrictions (then i would go with D)
I think the answer is B because it is grammatically right and concise. A is unambiguous because readers don't know whether the new contract forbids strikes organized by the union, or the new contract is proposed by the union. This question is similar to one example in page 22 of the MGMAT 4th e. _________________
