Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied. Congress has been required to call a convention

possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally
(C) was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible

I will go for 'E'. 'asked to do so' is correctly used. The tenses are correct. And it doesn't alter the meaning.

(E) has never been applied. Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible amendments to the document when formally asked to do so

Asked to do it is incorrect->A,B,C are out.
In D if where y is used as a conjunction the clause before it must be independent.
->D is out

I agree with Shaunak . If the "." in E is a typo for "," then E is correct.

Good question. Here's my take.

Quote:

(C) Under a provision of the Constitution that was never applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention for considering possible amendments to the document when asked to do it formally

whereby acts as a preposition --- also the whole clause containing whereby becomes adjectival modifying Provision rendering the sentence as a whole without a MAIN Verb and hence incomplete grammatically.

exactly the same proposition can be applied for the sentence below.

(D) Under a provision of the Constitution that has never been applied, whereby Congress is required to call a convention to consider possible
amendments to the document when formally asked to do so $CEO Joined: 21 Jan 2007 Posts: 2756 Location: New York City Followers: 9 Kudos [?]: 536 [0], given: 4 [#permalink] 31 Jul 2007, 01:35 dwivedys wrote: bmwhype2 wrote: Can someone elaborate on the use of whereby?
