ajit 257m,

There is no isssue regarding the idiom. Both are correct.

Oxford dictionary:

intention / noun
~ (of doing sth) | ~ (to do sth) | ~ (that...) what you intend or plan to do; your aim:
I have no intention of going to the wedding. * He has announced his intention to retire. * It was not my intention that she should suffer. * He left England with the intention of travelling in Africa. * I have every intention of paying her back what I owe her. * The original intention was to devote three months to the project. * She's full of good intentions but they rarely work out. * I did it with the best (of) intentions (= meaning to help), but I only succeeded in annoying them.

So you may use both intention of and intention to.



Just a question here: is the correct idiom "intend to" or "intent to"?
I think it is intend to and intention of/to..

EG: I intend to convey this message.
I went there with sole intent of selling my idea!

(Please correct me if I am wrong).. Thanks!

gmat apply some grammar rules which is not declared in the og books but required test takers and testprep companies to find out. This game is not interresting.

the following show the point.

In B

Protection Act in 1999, which allows

is incorrect not because "which" is far from "act" but because "in 1999" is not modifier of "act". This problem is explain wonderfully in the articale " slight far noun" in this forum. read the article.


Protection Act under the constitution, which

is correct because "under the constitution" is mofifier of "act" . This is acceptable.

B) the passage of the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act in 1999, which allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent that they will sell - which modifies 1999; it should modify the act.
C) the passage in 1999 of the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling----- correct modification of which. Right answer.


However as per exception rule of which modifier, which can refer to the noun ACC P Act, coz it is nonsensical for 'which' to refer year 1999 in this context. Is there any other error in option B?

(A) passing the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act in 1999, allowing companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling
(B) the passage of the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act in 1999, which allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent that they will sell
(C) the passage in 1999 of the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling
(D) the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which was passed in 1999, and it allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent to sell
(E) the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, passed in 1999 and allowing companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling - hanging sentence
