With its abundance of noun inflections, Icelandic is one of several Germanic languages that is compact when written but can lenghten considerably when translated into English.

(A) is compact when written be can lenghten considerably when translated into English

(B) are compact when they are written, but they can lengthen considerably when they are translated in English

(C) is compact when written but can lengthen considerably when being translated into English

(D) are compact when written but can lengthen considerably in English translation

(E) is compact when it is written but can lenghten considerably when translated in English

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since the subject here is Icelandic, which I think is singular (since it's only 1 language out of several Germanic languages). Only (A) and (D) use the singular is, however being in (D) seems redundant, so I chose (A).

Is my reasoning correct ?

somehow I feel that we should use plural here rather than singular...

b'cos it goes lik ''one of several LANGUAGES '' and I guess the verb goes in accordance with the nearest subject and here the nearest is languages which is clearly plural...

we get on to the choices B and D ...B seemz too redundant with too mmany ''they''s and D just seemz right but again I doubt the use ''in'' and the ''into'' would much better ...

let me knowthe right ans...

Have fun
