Though garlic is often associated with Italian cuisine, it is actually the use of oregano which most distinguishes the Italians from the French
A) which most distinguishes the Italians from the French
B) which primarily distinguishes Italians from Frenchmen
C) which generally serves to distinguish an Italian sauce from a French one
D) which is the major distinction between the two great cuisines
E) which most distinguishes Italian cookery from French.
Pls reply with your final answer after how you did your POE (process of elimination). I'll post the OA.
My objective from this exercise: To figure out why the OA is correct. I have some problems with the OA
I chose answer choice "D" just as you guys did. However the answer key says that "D" is not the right answer.
The OA = E.
Reason "D" is the wrong answer "according to the book": "D fails to mention the French Cuisines and therefore the dependant clause "which is the major distinction between the two great cuisines" is not right.
Here is where i have a problem: While answer choice "D" is wrong (the author's aforementioned reasoning makes sense) i have a problem with answer choice "E".
How can we compare "Italian Cookery" with "French". That was my logic when i booted out answer choice "E". If the author used French Cookery or French's i would have been okay with anwer choice "E".
for D to be an answer, there has to be a reference to French cuisines
(cookery) before the last sentence. Since there is no such reference,
D can't be an answer. E may not be the most correct answer, it is the
best among those provided as choices.
