Ans Has to be between A/E. Though I don't have a very STRONG reason to Eliminate E but I will go with A.

Somehow "any additional payment borrowed " dosen't sound good to me. I think it's Unidiomatic.

So A for me.

Saurabh, what's wrong with D?


any additional payment of medical or educational expenses that were borrowed against the home

1st---> Subject Verb Aggrement. Because Though ANY can be Singular/Plural but PAYMENT is UNCOUNTABLE NOUN so ANY will go with SINGULAR.

2nd-->any additional payment of medical or educational expenses that were borrowed against the home

Sentence Sounds Awkward to me it would have been better if it were phrased as " any additional payment of medical or educational expenses borrowed against the home

Well thats my reasoning. May be wrong/right...?.Well but Hope to learn something wether I am wrong or right :-D .

Gayathri,

We dont borrow payments, we make payments. Thats why D is wrong . E has the same mistake. as for B and C , i dont think "borrowing" even fits into the sentence.
