Design requires "allows", so A and B are out...

among the rest of the choices, E is the best choice, since "allows it" makes the most sense, and "so that" is the correct idiom...

But I do have one question...the "it" in E, does it refer to "design" or "turtle"?....because the "design" can't possiblely "draw in its expose parts"...it "it" is refering to the turtle, then E is not the right answer....I am a little confused....can someone clearify this for me, thanks...

It's E.

- design is singular so we need singular verb "allows".
Eliminate A and B.
- "it" placed immendiately next to allows makes the whole sentence more clear.
- "so that" is a correct idiom.

The particular design of muscles and bones in the neck and limbs of the turtle allows it to draw in its exposed parts, so that attacker can find nothing but hard shell to bite.

"draw in" a verb here.

E for the answer but also wondering if the answer can really be D. if "it" is not properly referring back to the turtle, then wouldn't D have the same problem? D seems ackward and changes the intended meaning of the sentence

A. allow that it can draw in its exposed parts such that => "that" wrong
B. allow it to draw in its exposed parts, and so => we need design ..allows
C. allows for it to draw in its exposed parts and that
D. allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so
E. allows it to draw in its exposed parts, so that

My Answer : E

between D & E
how does D correct the problem of "logical referent" - "it" ??
i guess it does not ...so E is the ans

I think I am still gonna stick with E....

In D, the " and so" at the end just doesn't sound right to me. As I can recall, the most common coordinative conjuctions are " and, or, nor, so, but, for, yet".....so isn't it redundant to have 2 conjunctions here to link the clauses....I don't know if I am correct, can someone correct me on this, thanks....

Anything but OG is useless.

You only end up learning wrong concepts.
