Hi all,
I can eliminate the wrong answers but I still don't understand why the correct answer is correct.

We can re-write the sentence:
- A recent poll suggests that candidates make statements are true.

I only see idiom with make: make somebody do something
so is that idiom correct in this sentence?

Now let’s analyze choice C: “to be”. Notice that “to be” is not a verb. This does not complete Clause 3. We need a verb to have a complete Clause 3. We need a verb for “that = statements”. Hence, this choice is incorrect.

Thanks.

Hello egmat, RonPurewal, GMATNinja,

Is that the correct reason to eliminate option C?

I eliminated C because option 'B' seemed superior.

Imo B
SVA the verb should be plural for the plural subject statements.

Only statements about opponents can be true or untrue. An opponent cannot be said to be true or not. What will be the meaning of a true opponent or an untrue opponent? The meaning doesn’t gel, does it




I really respect your knowledge and your experience , but I am not talking about just above post but I have seen many posts of yours and thought that

I think you must make statements clear and use of easy language , Becoz everyone here is not Adept in the verbals to understand all terminologies

So , I will appreciate if u make explanations little clear , structured and use terms which are easy to digest .

Just a suggestion, You are already a self made Master :)

A recent poll of elected officials suggests that candidates, when in the midst of a tough campaign, often make statements about an opponent that they may not think is true.


(A) is -- pronoun number agreement error! Incorrect!
(B) are -- CORRECT!
(C) to be -- awkward (usage of "are" is better than the "to be" usage)
(D) of as -- awkward (verb is needed)
(E) it is -- it for a plural noun -- statements -- Incorrect!

I am confused among options B, C, and D.
in the question statement "often make statements (about an opponent) that they may not think.....true

in the "that' clause here:-
they= subject
think= verb

then why are options "B" and "C" incorrect based on the reason :- "that clause is missing verb"
