Straight 'E' ..

'A' - it is ambigous. it should not be 'either accompanied' .

'B' - it is ambigous.

'C' - should be 'accompanied either'

'D' - same as 'C'

in addition to the correct usage of either... or, which is correct in E there is a problem with "accompanied either" and "either accompanied"

the correct needs to be "accompanied either" because the meaning is that it is the increase that is accompanied by either increase in X or increase in Y. whereas, "it is either accompanied by X or not accompanied"... which essentially shows the incorrect usage of "either" by stressing the verb and not the noun "increase" Based on this C and D are out

A and B are not || since they don't use "by": accompanied either by X or by Y... B is also wordy "if it is enclosed in the container..." What is enclosed the pressure or the temperature of gas?

my choice is E

Will go with E. Places ‘either’ closer to the action.
Also maintains ||ism.

Definitely E.

Should be accompanied either not either accompanied as in C and D.


An increase in the temperature of a gas is accompanied either by an increase in pressure if the gas is enclosed in a container or by an increase in volume if the gas is able to expand.

Strong ll in E is corerct.

An increase in the temperature of a gas is accompanied either by an increase in pressure if the gas is enclosed in a container or by an increase in volume if the gas is able to expand.

Attributed to ||ism and either.....or construction.
