Re: There is a difference in the way the term turnover and the [#permalink] New post 14 Jul 2013, 08:42
IMO C.

(A) way the term turnover and the term revenue is used in business across the Atlantic; in the States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occurs whereas- The verb should be in plural ie. "are", Hence incorrect.

(B) use of the term turnover and the term revenue in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occurs whereas-"use" is a noun. Additionally, IMO to maintain parallelism in the first clause, it should be "of the term revenue". Hence incorrect

(C) way the term turnover and the term revenue are used in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occur since-"are used..." correctly uses the verb form. Also, in the United States, turnover refers to... is parallel to "in Europe turnover refers to...". Hence correct.

(D) usage of the term turnover and the term revenue in business across the Atlantic; the rapidness of inventory acquisition and transaction is called turnover in the United States whereas-Refer explanation of option (c). The parallelism in 2nd clause is violated in this option. Hence incorrect

(E) way the term turnover and the term revenue are used in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, the rate at which the inventory acquisition and transaction occur are called turnover whereas-Refer explanation of option (c). The parallelism in 2nd clause is violated in this option. Hence incorrect

hi argha,

in option C...THE USE OF SINCE is incorrect...we need contrasting word...such as where as

option D is the right answer.

hi,

(A) way the term turnover and the term revenue is used in business across the Atlantic; in the States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occurs whereas===>

in the way...makes it wordier///IS is wrong...we need plural verb ARE/////REFERS TO should be followed by NOUN==>INCORRECT

(B) use of the term turnover and the term revenue in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occurs whereas====>

USAGE will be prefered over USE (here)////REFERS TO...SHOULD BE FOLLOWED BY NOUN===>INCORRECT

(C) way the term turnover and the term revenue are used in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, turnover refers to how rapidly the inventory acquisition and transaction occur since

IN THE WAY: adds to wordiness.///refers to should be followed by NOUN///USE OF SINCE is wrong..we need contrasting word here

(D) usage of the term turnover and the term revenue in business across the Atlantic; the rapidness of inventory acquisition and transaction is called turnover in the United States whereas
===>correct


(E) way the term turnover and the term revenue are used in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, the rate at which the inventory acquisition and transaction occur are called turnover whereas===>

IN THE WAY : adds to wordiness////rate at which is unidiomatic//// verb for THE RATE should be IS and not ARE.

hope it helps

(E) way the term turnover and the term revenue are used in business across the Atlantic; in the United States, the rate at which the inventory acquisition and transaction occur are called turnover whereas

Hi Blueseas,
RAPIDLY is not modifying any Noun in option B. It is correctly modifying VERB OCCURS (RAPIDLY..... OCCURS)

- in the way the term is wordier - that takes out choices A, C and E
- between B and D - usage is correct vs use and hence D.
