Have/Has + past participle (Received) - represents a going on action that began in the past and continues in the present.

Eg: Our country has enforced strict immigration laws for thirty years.

This sentence doesn't mean it happened in the past and it may or may not continue. Our country enforced strict immigration laws in the past and still enforces them today.

Hope that helps.

I think the answer should be A. "have consistently received" is present perfect which indicates three women received labor's support in the past and they continue to do so even now.

B doesnt seem correct... there is no need for present participle here. This choice makes it sound like three women are receiving support right at this moment.

C is again present participle. But "received the unqualified support of labor" is passive. A is in active voice, hence my choice over C.

I am quite convinced that answer shud b between A & C......but y not possessive form i.e. labor’s unqualifying support instead of the unqualified support of labor

Between 'B' and 'C'

'B' - have is present plural so grammatically correct. But usage of adjective phrase unqualifying support should precede labor and not follow that.

Hence. agree with the OA - 'C'

I have seen this one somewhere b/f. OA is correct.

possesive A does not win over C.

I think it is "unqualifying support" instead of "unqualified support" that makes A a bad choice.

Are you saying that GMAT Prep says that the OA is actually A and not C?

D. receive consistent and unqualified support by labor
E. are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor



I will go with C.

In A:
labor's unqualifying support --> labor's <unqualifying support > --> which may mean that .. labor has "qualifying support" and "unqualifying support" and we are referring to labor's <unqualifying support>

this doesn't make sense.

it should be unqualifying/unqualified labor's support --> unqualified <support of labor>

C is far better than A.

Sorry for the confusion. C is the OA.

Definately C

The emphasis is more on the quality here, hence 'the unqualified support of labour' conveys the message more clearly than 'labour's unqualifying support'. To me, the latter holds almost a negative connotation.

It's definitely between B and C, but my choice is C. "A" is out of the question because "labor's unqualifying support" uses "labor" as possessive.

"B" says that the three women "are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor". If they are receiving it, that means it is happening in the present, which doesn't make for a very interesting sentence. Also I don't think "unqualifying" is even a word. For me the word "unqualifying" is what rules out "B".

"C" says that the the women "have consistently...support of labor". If they have received it, that means that it started in the past and continues, which does make for an interesting sentence. "Unqualified support" is used properly.
