"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 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,

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.

regards,
deepika.

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)

"D and E are out, ""damaged"" needs a qualifier here. Ears (hearing powers) were damaged, OR jet engines damaged hearing power.

C is out too…just wordy (consequence and resulted from)

A and B

Consequence from / of

consequence is same as result

resulted from
OR
result of something

Pick A "

"consequence of" means "as a result of" is the correct idiom.

A common disability in test pilots is hearing impairment, a consequence of (or "as a result of") sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time.

Option A is the correct answer.

(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) Correct!
B) Wong idiom usage, should be 'a consequence of', wrong usage of 'near to'
C) Wong idiom usage, should be 'a consequence of', consequence and resulted mean the same, hence redundancy error
D) modifies incorrectly, wrong usage of 'near to'
E) modifies incorrectly, they cannot logically refer back to pilots because 'pilots' are not the subject and are in fact in a prepositional phrase

Hi, although your answer is correct, your reason to eliminate E is a bit shaky. Pronouns can very well refer to noun in a prepositional phrase. Their are few OG questions on the same concept.

Will post the link soon.

Thank you = Kudos

Hey Sumit,
I think you are right. Upon reflection, I realised that I confused this with the rule that subjects cannot lie inside a prepositional phrase with the exception of quantifiable prepositional phrases.

A common disability in test pilots is hearing impairment, a consequence of sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods
of time.


Meaning: All the pilots have one common disbility - Hearing Impairment.
Because, of sitting too close to jet engines for a long time

(A) a consequence of sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time
Perfect. Conequence modifies the whole clauses before that. And it is structured in a good way. Location + time

(B) a consequence from sitting for long periods of time too near to large jet engines
"Consequence" is used rightly here but structure is time + location. And also time too near is awkward they should have used a comma.

(C) a consequence which resulted from sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time

Very wordy. which resulted is used here unnecessary here.

(D) damaged from sitting too near to large jet engines for long periods of time
Impairment is already damaged, how is the damage word modifying it?

(E) damaged because they sat too close to large jet engines for long periods of time
Impairment is already damaged, how is the damage word modifying it?
