Records from ancient Athens indicate that each year young Athenian women collaborated to weave a new woolen robe with which they dressed a statue of the goddess Athena and that this robe depicted scenes of a battle between Zeus ,Athena's father and giants.

I have a doubt regarding the two questions i have posted.In both of these questions which is not modifying a noun and does not follow a noun.
Can experts shed some light on this concept.Thanks !!

Example 1: You find which in an IC and that IC is conjugated by a fanboy conjunction. Therefore structurally there cannot be a modified noun before the word. Second, ‘which’ is an adjective that modifies the noun, kinds, a noun that follows the interrogative pronoun rather than precedes it.
2. This is a flipped sentence of ‘Athenian women collaborated to weave a new woolen robe, which they dressed a statue of the goddess Athena with. For all practical purposes, ‘with which’ and ‘which’ mean the same thing. It may therefore be seen that, ‘which’ actually stands for the noun robe.

Hi Rrkan,

It has to be 'lying' - 'social interactions' is a plural and so would need a plural word to replace 'it' - since all 5 options have the singular 'it' then this can not be what is being tested.

When i read this question. i can straightforward eliminate A. What's 'they' referring too. It's social ineractions or psychiatrists. Both doesn't fit into the meaning of the sentence. Eliminate A,B and C. I eliminate D because it's in passive voice and because we have E which is written in active voice without any grammatical error. Hence i pick E.

Let's first look at E: While recognizing that lying often facilitates social interactions, psychiatrists are seeking to determine two things:

(ei) When it becomes destructive and
(eii) Which kinds of mental problems it can signal

Looking at D: While recognizing that lying often facilitates social interactions, psychiatrists are seeking to determine two things:

(di) When it becomes destructive and
(dii) the mental problems that are signaled by it

Basically the two things comprise a list and from parallelism perspective , these two elements should be structurally similar .

Just by looking at the construct of D and E, it should be clear that (ei) and (eii) are structurally similar ( when... and which.... are two question like statements), while (di) and (dii) are not structurally similar ( when.... and the mental problems... ).

Grammatically speaking, both (ei) and (eii) are clauses . On the other hand, while (di) is a clause, (dii) is not a clause. Hence, (di) and (dii) are not structurally similar.

Just because D is in a passive voice does not automatically eliminate it. Does anyone else have any explanation why D is incorrect? The answers above have not sufficiently explained why D is incorrect.

Yes, passive voice DOES make it incorrect. Passive voice alone does NOT eliminate an answer choice, but when it tires to sit parallely with an active voice, it surely is wrong.

Subject-Verb Agreement, Parallelism

'lying' is the reasonable subject for 'become destructive', so the pronoun should be 'it' and verb should be 'becomes'.
Further, the two items that psychiatrists are seeking to determine should be stated in parallel structures.

a. they become destructive and which kinds of mental problems they can signal

b.they become destructive and the mental problems that are signaled by them

'the mental problems' is not parallel to 'when they become'

c.it becomes destructive and what are the kinds of mental problems they signal

Also the inversion in the second part is not necessary.

d.it becomes destructive and the mental problems that are signaled by it

second part is not parallel to 'when it becomes destructive'


e.it becomes destructive and which kinds of mental problems it can signal Correct!

pronouns and verb agree with 'lying'. Also, 'when it becomes ...' is parallel to 'which kinds of ...'
