The deer, despite having traveled hundreds of miles from their home to reach the Canadian wilderness and therefore being free to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers, struggled to acclimate to the habitat that wildlife biologists had predicted would enable it to thrive.

(A) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from their home to reach the Canadian wilderness and therefore being free to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers

(B) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from home to the Canadian wilderness where they would now be free to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers

(C) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from home to reach the Canadian wilderness that offered freedom to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers

(D) even after traveling hundreds of miles from their home to reach the Canadian wilderness where they could freely roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers

(E) who had traveled hundreds of miles from home to the Canadian wilderness that would offer them freedom to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers


[Reveal] Spoiler: Official Answer & Explanation
OA: C
Explanation: This sentence is entirely about the advanced GMAT theme of “The Whole Sentence Matters”. Without recognizing the pronoun “it” toward the end of the sentence, far from the underline, you’d struggle to gain a foothold here. “Deer” is both singular and plural, so if you didn’t notice that defining singular pronoun “it” you wouldn’t be turned off by the presence of “they”, “their”, and “them” in choices A, B, D, and E. But the word “it” makes “deer” singular, and only choice C (which avoids the use of a second pronoun) can then be correct.

(C) is the only option chosen by everyone , but with (E) i am able to find from X to Y correction ;would offer-would enable usage correct; "HAD" is correctly used to maintain the intent of the author about the time tense.(E)IMO

There are a few issues with E in addition to the use of plural 'them' . IMO, the pronoun 'who' does not go well with an animal. It should have been 'that' instead of 'who'. Secondly, the use of 'had travelled' is inappropriate as clarification for time sense is not required there. Whereas, the use of 'had predicted' is justified because it happened before 'struggled'.

(A) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from their home to reach the Canadian wilderness and therefore being free to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers <== 'their' plural pronoun refer to deer'
being as usual incorrect in gmat.


(B) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from home to the Canadian wilderness where they would now be free to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers <== 'they plural refer to deer'

(C) despite having traveled hundreds of miles from home to reach the Canadian wilderness that offered freedom to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers <== correct answer

(D) even after traveling hundreds of miles from their home to reach the Canadian wilderness where they could freely roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made dangers <== their and they plural refers to deer

(E) who had traveled hundreds of miles from home to the Canadian wilderness that would offer them freedom to roam without fear of highway traffic or other man-made danger <== them incorrect refer to singular deer

Congratulations - You are the winner
Actually you have won both Quant and Verbal challenge (very impressive!)
You will be awarded the course/prize for the Quant.
Per rules only one prize per person.



Ans is C.

The Deer is singular, so
A,B,D and E are incorrect.


Thank you.. thank you :twisted:

Congratulations again.

Thank you for your participation and an amazing performance!

You are officially the winner but since you cannot use 2 courses, we will be giving away 2 courses on Friday instead of 1! So, everybody should try to participate in that one. It will be a Critical Reasoning Question.
