The Supreme Court's concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but the nation to which it is responsible.

(A) but the nation to which it is responsible
(B) but for the sake of the nation to which it is responsible
(C) so much as the nation it is responsible to
(D) as the nation it is responsible to
(E) but the nation

Key idea that i remembered and tried to apply = possessive poison.

I will go with E and ellipsis


The Supreme Court’s concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but [for the sake of] the nation

B looks good except for "IT"... what is it referring to??? sake or concern?

u2lover, I think it should be (B) only.
Pattern : not for X but for Y is idiomatic.

"it" is referring to court. Try putting "sake" or "concern" in place of "it" and sentence doesn't make sense.

It must be B.

Can`t use ellipsis here, unless the sentence were stated as follows:

The Supreme Court’s concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but for the sake of the nation.

(B)

"it" is referring to court. Try putting "sake" or "concern" in place of "it" and sentence doesn't make sense.

It must be B.


IMO It can not refer to supreme court's concern, as the subject is not supreme court but supreme court's concern.

IMO "IT" has proper antecedent, Trying using other possible antecedent and check the sentence whether sentence makes sense. "IT" can't refer back to the other possible antecedents such as Sake, Nation or Concern.

Yes, for more detail check "Supernova" example given by MGMAT on page no. 70 (ed-4th)

The Supreme Court's concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but FOR the nation to which it is responsible.

Also, this question is taken from http://www.stjohns.edu/media/3/f8f413fd ... d15f19.pdf

Re: sc -- supreme court [#permalink] New post 16 Sep 2010, 02:43
In the Mgmat guide it is supernovas not supernova's. Thus it is not relevant.
Check my previous post:
It can not refer to supreme court's concern, as the subject is not supreme court but supreme court's concern.

Suppose you have 3 contenders for 'IT' and one of the contender is Apostrophe, but other 2 does not make sense. Can you conclude the Apostrophe is right?

Moreover my concern is not whether others make sense or not, but whether supreme court's concern could be used as antecedent for it?

The Supreme Court's concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but for the sake of the nation to which supreme court's concern is responsible

I have replaced IT by supreme court's concern. Does this make sense?

I think the following is correct but it was not given in the answer choices.

The Supreme Court's concern with legitimacy is not for the sake of the court but for the sake of the nation to which supreme court is responsible

this is an example of BAD question in 1000 series.
Avoid it, since it does not teaches you.

Look at the following; This one is from Manhattan’s Ron;

“'m pleased to announce that we are strongly considering eliminating altogether the coverage of "possessive poison" in the next forthcoming edition of our strategy guide.
while this rule has been mentioned in the answer keys to one or two official problems, it has never been dispositive in even a single problem, and it has caused confusion vastly outdoing its usefulness for a great number of students”

http://www.manhattangmat.com/forums/pro ... t9533.html

I think we can ignore the possessiveness of an antecedent as long as it is referring only to that particular referent. We might rather look at other issues

It requires parallelism:
not FOR...but FOR...

Thanks Daagh, but "possessive poison" helps in elimination of wrong answer choices.
