OA lateR~ :wink:


I'll go with E.

A: Meaning is strange. The teeth don't lie in reserve when the active teeth are worn out.
B: Same as above.
C: 'each one of which are' is incorrect
D: what does 'each one of whch' refer to? the jaws or the teeth? 'lying in seemingly...' is akward use of present continuous tense.

E

A. wrong meaning. It seems that when a tooth is lost then many tooth lie in the reserve.
B, C, D - each is referring to shark's jaws instead of teeth.

E conveys the correct meaning and uses singular 'is'.

E seems to be the right answer.

In B,C,D, the relative pronoun "which" seems to refer to wrong antecedent instead of pointing to the teeth..

A...as pointed out earlier, seems to suggest that the spare teeth are available only when the active tooth is lost or worn down, which is not the case; the spare teeth are always available irrespective of whether the active tooth is lost or worn down.

Each is singular, so "are" can`t be the correct verb.

(E)

Not sure how the OA is E. 'In the sharks Jaw's' just sounds wrong. Wouldn't 'In a sharks Jaw' be the correct usage?
