"a consequence of" is the correct idiom and it modifies "hearing impairment"

Yes, choice A is best. "A consequence of" is always used, not "consequence from."

A - Correctly use of idiom "consequence of."
B - "A consequence from" uses the wrong idiom.
C - The use of "consequence" and "resulted" is redundant.
D - "Damaged" illogically modifies "hearing impairment."
E - See D above.

pls correct me if i am wrong in eliminating an ans

first if i am not aware of the idiom then

A) seems flaw less (so keep it as a contender)
B) wrong modification as it appears as if hearing impairment is a consequence of sitting for long periods times
and ofcourse if sme one is aware of -wrng idiom
C) consequence and resulted bth are same and thus redundant
D) hearing impairment and damage are redundant
E) same as D

pls comment if my way of eliminations contains any error

i think to be perfect it is necessary to understand y am i eliminating an ans

A common disability in test pilots is hearing impairment, a consequence of sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time.
(A) a consequence of sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time
(B) a consequence from sitting for long periods of time too near to large jet engines
(C) a consequence which resulted from sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time
(D) damaged from sitting too near to large jet engines for long periods of time
(E) damaged because they sat too close to large jet engines for long periods of time

A consequence is the right usage, as it's absolute phrase here. Cross off D and E
A consequence of is the right idiom. Cross off B and C

A is the answer - 27 secs :D

hi,
the phrase is 'consequence of...' , as absolute phrase contains noun+relative pronoun/verbed/verbing modifiers, this phrase is noun phrase or absolute phrase?. does absolute phrase also has 'of ' in its structure?.. I'm confused with noun phrase, absolute phrase and noun+noun modifier. Please explain.

hi,

as noun phrase modifies the noun before it? is 'consequence of... ' modifies hearing impairment because it is just before the phrase?.please explain me the difference between noun phrase, absolute phrase and noun+noun modifier.

Hello DeepikaV - A noun phrase can definitely modify a noun.

Example: After receiving her first award, Mary, a student at Harvard Business School, wrote a book.

In this case Mary - Is noun

And - a student at Harvard Business School - is a modifier (noun phrase) modifying the noun Mary (Providing more information about Mary)
