The sentence talks about simulanoues actions so use progressive tense.eliminate a. From parallelism eliminate b and d. Between c and e , c wins as it is more clear.

OA is +1 D

A - Use of would is incorrect since the sentence is in the present tense, so go with will instead. Make should be making since this is happening simultaneously with another activity
B – look at the protection of consumers distorts the meaning of the sentence
C – for looking is unidiomatic
E - for looking at protectin‘ is unidiomatic and awkward\

:-D

Hi,

While also isn t awekward generally speaking? The meaning of while implies an 'also' meaning as well...
Can you give the source please?

Thank you.
Happy new year

Anyone can throw some light on the 3:2 divide, i understand that is used for explaining the essential clause but the usage of for is still not out of place, is it? Will look at will become future tense and making becomes present perfect, so with that the correct answer is D but i feel there is a catch with that and for.

Cheers

Hi farhanc85

I'm glad to help.

The White House, meanwhile, has set up its own interagency panel that would look at how to protect consumers while also make United States companies more competitive internationally

A. that would look at how to protect consumers while also make
B. that will look at the protection of consumers while also making
C. for looking at how to protect consumers while also making
D. that will look at how to protect consumers while also making ==> CORRECT
E. for looking at protecting consumers and also making

First split: "make" VS "making"
After "while" you have two options:
(1) "while" is subordinating conjunction, thus after "while" you must use a complete sentence. "While also make...." is short of subject, so this part cannot be a complete sentence. ==> A is out.
(2) if the part after while has the same subject, you can use "while + V-ing". For example: he does his job while talking on the phone.
B, C, D, E which say "while also making" ==> remain.

Second split: "that" vs "for"
"For" is incorrect preposition, the intended meaning is about the "plan" - the White house has set up a panel to look at...... Thus, "for" which means "because" is incorrect. ==> C, E are out.
"That" is correct modifier. B, D remain.

Third split: "look at the protection" vs "look at how to protect".
Clearly, the intended meaning is about the "plan" of the White house to protect consumers. The white house does not look at "the protection OF customers". B changes meaning.

Only D left. ==> CORRECT.

Hope it's clear.

Hi PG,
Thank you for the response.
In this question i agree the intended meaning is about the plan, For as a preposition can be used to indicate the use of something. "I am asking this question for some clarity." "This plan is for the underprivileged kids". I don't think here the intended meaning is because." For, this reason the plan was a failure"----here the" for" would sound more like because.

Although i got the answer through other splits, I think For over here is not completely wrong. For can be used as an intended use of the plan, which is looking at protecting consumers. Still some confusion with the 3:2 splits with regards to For and That in my brain :oops: Thanks for the other feedback though, used those to get the right answer.

Cheers
Farhan

Hi Farhan.

In fact, there are many ways to use preposition "for". We cannot remember them properly, so just focus on typical usages that Gmat usually tests. I'd like to share a very usefully article about "To Verb vs For Verb-ing" from egmat. You can learn how to eliminate wrong answers quickly..

to-verb-vs-for-verb-ing-144017.html

Hope it clears your doubt.

Best regards.

Pqhai.

I am not able to understand why "look at the protection of consumers" is not correct. As per my knowledge, "to look at something" means "to take care of something" but not sure of it though.

Can somone please elaborate on this.
