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.

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?

Look at the explanation given by Futuristic and ps_dahiya above.
Thats enough to understand the meaning and analysis behind the correct answer.

each as subject acts as singular.

so eliminate A,B,C
B,C,D - each referring to jaws incorrect
E - Correct answer.

do we have any other reasons to eliminate A-D apart from above.

egmat - I got the correct answer, however there still seems to be a error :-

Option E :- In the shark's jaws, many spare ............

I think this should be sharks' jaws

one shark one jaw
many sharks many jaws...

Am I wrong..?

When an active tooth in the shark's jaws is lost or worn down, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve, each of which are ready to slide into the appropriate position.

A. When an active tooth in the shark's jaws is lost or worn down, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve, each of which are ready to slide into the appropriate position.
There are a couple of Errors in this option.
1. Grammar -
freetheking wrote:
each of which are
Each makes the subject Singular. Therefore, it should be - Each of which IS.
2. Meaning - Conveying the meaning that Spare Teeth get in reserve when an active tooth is lost rather than meaning that Spare Teeth lie in reserve to replace a broken tooth.

B. Whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve in the shark's jaws, which are each ready to slide into the appropriate position.
Which clause is wrongly modifying Jaws.
C. Many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve in the shark's jaws, each one of which are ready to slide into the appropriate position when an active tooth is lost or worn down.
Same error as above
D. The many spare teeth lying in seemingly limitless reserve in the shark's jaws, each one of which is ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down.
Same error as above
E. In the shark's jaws, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve, each one ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever an active tooth is lost or worn down.
Correct.

Correctly modifying Spare Teeth.

I was hesitating between C and E, eventually choosing the wrong answer.

One more little argument in favor of E over C is the usage of "whenever" instead of "when".

From the book:
If an event is unique or its date or time is known, use when.
The game will begin Friday evening when the clock strikes seven.
Whenever is best used for repeated events or events whose date or time is uncertain. If you can substitute every time that or at whatever time that in your sentence, then whenever is preferred.
Whenever I get in the shower, the phone rings.

Let's see E again:
In the shark's jaws, many spare teeth lie in seemingly limitless reserve, each one ready to slide into the appropriate position whenever (can be substitute with "every time that") an active tooth is lost or worn down.

But I would agree with the previous answers that the most ambiguity in C is "which" that incorrectly refers to "jaws"
