a. they are potentially devastating for homeowners, whose
b. they can potentially devastate homeowners in that their
c. for homeowners they are potentially devastating, because their
d. for homeowners, it is potentially devastating in that their
e. it can potentially devastate homeowners, whose
Please explain your answer.
I did not like a or b because I am thinkinh that "they" modifies investors. Why is this thinking wrong or right?
"can potentially" is redundant. It is either "can" or "potentially". This rules out B and E
You can refer to testmagic.com ( I forgot the post that mentiones this rule )
Depressed property value is plural so the sentence should have plural verb
This gets rid of D
We have to choose between A and C. C has classic problem "their" what does it
refer to, homeowners or the property values. "Whose" correctly refers to homeowners.
C has another problem, that is the modifier problem. The first sentence should modify the
properties and not homeowners.
