OG Verbal Review 2.0 SC Q:46

ldiom; Grammatical construction

This sentence should depend on the correlative construction not only . . . but also y, where x and y are paraIlel. However, the faulty construction in the original sentence does not properly include the second element, but also, and so produces a sentence fragment. James says that facial expressions have two effects: they provide a sign of emotion and they contribute to emotion. Thus, in this sentence, not only should be followed by (x) provide a visible sign of an emotion, and but also should be followed by (y) actually contribute to the feeling itself.

(A) the not only. . . but also construction is violated, creating a sentence fragment.
(B) But also actually contributing is not parallel to not only provide; because contributing is a participle and not a verb, the result is a sentence fragment.
(C) Correct. The not anly . . . but also construction is parallel, resulting in a complete sentence.
(D) The not only construction needs to be completed with but also and should not be interrupted by a semicolon. The feeling of it is awkward and wordy.
(E) Use of the semicolon in the not only . . . but also construction is not correct; the passive voice is also actually contributed to is awkward and not parallel to provide.

The correct answer is C.

Not only and But also was good however for elimination of B and keeping C I will give following reason

(B) emotion but also actually contributing to the feeling itself -> This is not parallel with un-underlined part following not only.
(C) emotion but also actually contribute to the feeling itself -> This is parallel with un-underlined part following not only.

I agree with abhijit_sen, not only X but also Y + || (not only provide || but also actually contribute)

I got this right, please let me know my method of elimination is correct

not only...but also.. is the construction thus, A,D,E are straight out

(A) emotion, actually contributing to the feeling itself->

(B) emotion but also actually contributing to the feeling itself-> -ing form is awkward in the sentence thus eliminate it

(C) emotion but also actually contribute to the feeling itself-> proper construction, sounds good

(D) emotion; they also actually contribute to the feeling of it

(E) emotion; the feeling itself is also actually contributed to by them



It's C -- as it satisfies the idiom not only -- but also.

i would say IT, is used in the 'placeholder' sense here? But I could be wrong... essentially it could be referring to "emotion" ... but it seems that maybe the sentence could be wrong, since it does not actually state an emotion.

Of course if a GMAT instructor has anything to add or clarify, i would be interested as well! lol :)

Is C parallel? Doesn’t the word ‘actually’ intrude into the co-relative conjunction // ism; no doubt C is the only clause resulting in a complete sentence. Or is this what GMAT means by saying that it will give preference to meaning rather than grammar?

As far as I know, an adjective or an adverb can intrude without affecting the parallelism...
