A lawyer defending a doctor from malpractice charges easily avoids damages if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify about proper medical procedures.

A) if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify( correct)
B) unless there will be another doctor to testify( if then construction conveys the intended meaning better)
C) without another doctor's testimony( doesn't convey the meaning)
D) should there be no testimony from some other doctor( awkward construction)¹1
E) lacking another doctor to testify( present participle incorrectly modifies the damages)

Both options A and B seems ok but I will go with A.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Thanks

IMO, Option C conveys much more concise and logical meaning.

Choice D. Properly conveys the meaning. Kinda hard to explain why it's the right answer but here goes!

A: Don't think the conditional If is appropriate here
B: Structure seems off
C: Meaning distorted I think
D: Awkward but I couldn't find any faults with it
E: should be lacking another doctor's testimony..

Please let me know if I'm right!

Imo E

A) if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify---incorrect, some other redundant in this sentence
B) unless there will be another doctor to testify---incorrect, there is no condition in sentence
C) without another doctor's testimony---jncorrect meaning issues
D) should there be no testimony from some other doctor---incorrect, no moral obligation s mentioned
E) lacking another doctor to testify ---correct, lacking modifies previous noun

It seems like this Kaplan question is pretty much just a rewording of the following OG question:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/a-patient-ac ... 79284.html

The most popular answer on the other thread sheds some light on why "B" is not the correct answer:

@RisingForceX :
"In my view, (B) is wrong.

After searching the usage of "unless" on the internet, then I found this example:

"Unless she hurries up, we won't arrive in time."

You'll see that it uses present simple tense in the unless clause, and uses future tense (will not) in the Then clause.

Then look at this problem, you'll see that it already uses "will" in the Then Clause. Therefore, it is not able to use future tense again in the Unless clause.
"

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Chris
