What is logical predication [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2007, 17:31
Hi,
I have been going through official guide explanations on sentence correction and there I see that for many questions it mentions error as " logical predication + ......".
I am clear with the error explanation but not clear on meaning of logical predication.

Can someone pls explain in simple term the meaning of logical predication ??

Thanks

Got curious about what logical predication means- it simply means whether a sentence makes logical sense :)

It not just has to adhere to the grammar rules but its meaning should also make sense.

If you found my post useful- please give a kudo :)

You are exactly right - logical predication is the GMAT's crazy way of saying "Meaning-based problem". Predication means how you address the predicate of the sentence - the predicate of the sentence is essentially what is happening to the subject. So, logical predication is logically talking about the subject of the sentence.

While this logical predication is essentially meaning, that doesn't mean that grammatical principles don't apply. The GMAT will commonly mess up "predication" by using faulty modifiers and comparisons.

Here are a few examples on how logical predication come into play in the sentence structure:
- subject cannot be described by the verb;
- subjects cannot carry out the verb;
- the phrases "is when", "is where", and "is because" have faulty predication because an adjective or noun must follow "is" (and because "because" is a conjunction;).
