A group of seasoned lawyers has been working to identify the issues and supply answers to questions arising from the \$15 billion Airline Destabilization Act; although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which it was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation.

A. although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which it was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation
B. laudable in purpose, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation
C. although laudable in purpose, the Act approved by the Congress was in such haste that it has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation
D. although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation
E. even though its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation

The first thing that strikes me is that the phrases following "either" and '"or" should be parallel.

The last part of the original sentence 'either by the courts or amended legislation.' is therefore, incorrect.
With this, we can eliminate options (A) and (E)

In (B), the modifier "laudable in purpose" incorrectly modified 'haste' instead of the Act. Hence eliminate (B).

In (D), the placement of 'was' doesn't seem appropriate. It would have been fine had it been 'the was Act approved by the Congress in such haste' instead of 'the Act approved by the Congress was in such haste'

A group of seasoned lawyers has been working to identify the issues and supply answers to questions arising from the \$15 billion Airline Destabilization Act; although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which it was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation.

A. although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which it was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation

B. laudable in purpose, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation: Misses contrast marker such as although, yet etc. Wrong modifier placement. 'Haste' is not laudable in purpose

C. although laudable in purpose, the Act approved by the Congress was in such haste that it has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation : " it " is ambiguous (Congress/ Act/ or the hasty action of approving the act) The intended meaning is to signify the last.

D. although its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or through amended legislation- Perfect

E. even though its purpose is laudatory, the haste with which the Act was approved by the Congress has left some identifiable gaping loopholes, omissions, and confusing points that will need to be addressed either by the courts or amended legislation

Hi,

Here 'it' is not ambiguous because 'it' is at the beginning of the clause after semicolon and refers back to the logical antecedent of the main clause.

Difference between choices C and D

C- states "laudable in purpose" this can refer either to Congress or to act .. ambigious
Also it uses "it" again which is somewhat wordy.

Also intended meaning is haste of act result in something not the Act itself.

D corrects all the above errors
