[quote="rohitgoel15"]There is substantial evidence that certain forms of solar energy either now or within a few years will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power.
(A) either now or within a few years will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power
(B) will either be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power within a few years or are so now
(C) will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power either now or within a few years
(D) either are now economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power or will be so within a few years
(E) are either now or will be within a few years economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power


I see the problem with C. "Now" signals the present tense of the verb "be."
If C was like "will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power either shortly or within a few years then C would be the answer.

There is substantial evidence that certain forms of solar energy either now or within a few years will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power.

(A) either now or within a few years will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power
(B) will either be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power within a few years or are so now
(C) will be economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power either now or within a few years - we cannot say 'will be competitive now'.....thats wrong tense
(D) either are now economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power or will be so within a few years - 'so' is for the task
(E) are either now or will be within a few years economically competitive with conventional sources of heat and power

I was trapped between D and E, and then I saw what's wrong in E

if you put ''either'' after ''are'', in the latter, there couldn't be ''will be''

in A, ''now'' is incosistent with ''will be''

in B same reason for E

in C same reason for A

hope it's understandable

Hi all,
the trap is that C looks very attractive. but in C either X or Y are not paralel.
Unlike D (either + auxiliary verb + time) + (or + auxiliary verb + time), C is not parallel: either now (adjective) or within (preposition)

hope it helps.
