Hi anilkumar1510, actually this is a case where a clause is acting as the subject of the sentence. The subject (clause) is:

That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church

The one important thing to note vis-a-vis this structure is that in such cases, the subject is always considered singular (and hence, the main verb of this sentence is singular is).

The structure of this sentence is:

<Subject clause> is indicated by X as well as by Y.

Where:

X: its eastward orientation and overall plan

Y: the artifacts, such as glass-oil lamp fragments, found at the site

Another similar official example:

That some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly while others look quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely that they vary considerably on a spectrum of genetic relatedness.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Noun Clause, its application and examples. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section



But what noun does it refer to?
The only noun in the sentence is "That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church".
This cant be the antecedent in the sentence.

Could you kindly explain this to me.
thanks

I am not sure whether you have doubt about the pronoun "it" or the pronoun "that"? "It" has no issues, since it clearly refers to "a ruined structure". ("That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church" is not a noun, but a subordinate clause.)

If your query is about the pronoun "that", then following is the explanation:

"That" does not necessarily refer to a noun - it may as well be used to introduce a clause. Compare with the following:

I know that I cannot solve difficult problems.

Here "that" introduces the clause "I cannot solve difficult problems". (The "that"-clause is the object of the verb "know")

Similarly in option E, "that" introduces the clause "a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church". This "that"-clause is the subject of the verb "is indicated".

That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church" is indicated by its eastward orientation and overall plan," is a substantive phrase acting as the noun for the entire clause with ' is indicated' as the verb. More about such structures in the following links.

Dear daagh Sir, you meant "substantial clause", not "substantial phrase", isn't it? "That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church" is a clause.

Yes, it is, in fact, a subordinate clause because you see that there is a verb 'was' in that clause a. All the same, a clause also can be a part of the substantive that acts as an individual noun in such structure.

Hi EducationAisle,
In OA E, how can the article- 'the' and such as go together.
Example- I love places, such as Denmark and Nepal.
I love the places, such as Denmark and Nepal.--> This is wrong. We cant use the with such as

Hi sunny91, the sentence under consideration isn't the same as:

I love the places, such as Denmark and Nepal.

It is similar to:

I love the mountainous places, such as Denmark and Nepal, that offer a serene environment.

Basically the difference here is the presence of a comma before such as and a subsequent modifier, making the entire such as... phrase non-essential. So, the core of the sentence would be:

I love the mountainous places that offer a serene environment.

Am sure you would be fine with the above sentence using a the.

Having said that, GMAT doesn't really test you on articles, so an article would not be something I would focus on, to eliminate/choose an option.

Hi EducationAisle,
Thanks for the quick reply.
I guess the following sentence is correct where there is no comma and 'the' article.
I love mountainous places such as Denmark and Nepal-->Right

I guess the following sentence is incorrect without the use of comma and with 'the' article.
I love the mountainous places such as Denmark and Nepal-->Wrong

Please clarify if my understanding is correct

That's right.

But would like to reiterate what I had mentioned in my last post: GMAT doesn't really test you on articles, so an article would not be something I would focus on, to eliminate/choose an option :-) .

(B) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, once probably being a church, was indicated by its eastward orientation, overall plan, and

(B) is wrong because it seems like it is saying the ruined structure no longer is indicated by the orientation and plan and artifacts.

I am wondering whether it is right to say
by A and B as well as by C

why not :
by A and by B as well as by C
OR
by A and B as well as C
(either say by for all items , or for only the first )
please explain the rule of preposition & parallelism

To understand any parallelism, you have to understand the structure.

by A and by B as well as by C = List [A and B], modifier [as well as C] - you got 2 different elements
To make it \\ you have to have 'by' in each element.

by A and by B as well as by C - correct (each has it's own 'by')
by A and B as well as by C - correct ('by' stands in the beginning of the list and works for both A and B, but in modifier you have to repeat 'by')
by A and B as well as by C and D - correct

_A and by B as well as by C - incorrect
by A and by B as well as _C - incorrect
by A and B as well as _C - incorrect

Hi GmatNinja,
option E , can you please help me to find the correct stem.
[Jordan, was probably a church is indicated by its] followed by "eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as by the"
or
the stem
[Jordan, was probably a church is indicated] followed by "by its eastward orientation and by its overall plan" whats incorrect in this construction ? and if this construction is correct then shouldn't choice E be incorrect ?

I understand among all the choices option E is probably the best.

Hello Everyone!

Let's tackle this question, one thing at a time, and narrow it down to the right answer quickly! First, here is the original question with the major differences highlighted in orange:

A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church as indicated in its eastward orientation and by its overall plan, as well as artifacts, such as glass-oil lamp fragments, found at the site.

(A) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church, as indicated in its eastward orientation and by its overall plan, as well as
(B) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, once probably being a church, was indicated by its eastward orientation, overall plan, and
(C) Indicating that a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church were its eastward orientation and overall plan, but also the
(D) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church, as indicates its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as the
(E) That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church is indicated by its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as by the

There are a few things we can focus on here:

1. How they begin: A ruined structure / Indicating that a ruined structure / That a ruined structure (Meaning)
2. was probably vs. once probably being (Verb Tense & Meaning)
3. How the end (Hint: Parallelism & Idioms!)


I know it may be tempting to start with #1 or #2 on the list. However, none of them will eliminate 2-3 options right off the bat, so let's save them for later if we need them. Instead, let's start with #3 on our list: Idioms & Parallelism.

If we look at the entire sentence, we can quickly spot the idiom we need to focus on:

A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church as indicated in its eastward orientation and by its overall plan, as well as artifacts, such as glass-oil lamp fragments, found at the site.

The idiom we're using here is:

X as well as Y

We need to make sure that both X and Y in this idiom are worded using parallel structure. To help make this easier to spot, we'll go ahead and add the word "artifacts" to the end of each option. Here's how each one works out:

(A) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church, as indicated in its eastward orientation and by its overall plan, as well as artifacts --> NOT PARALLEL

(B) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, once probably being a church, was indicated by its eastward orientation, overall plan, and artifacts --> OK
(This option doesn't use the "as well as" idiom, so let's save it for later.)

(C) Indicating that a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church were its eastward orientation and overall plan, but also the artifacts --> NOT PARALLEL
(This is also incorrect because it uses the phrase "but also," which needs another negative phrase such as "not only" or "not just" to go with it! We can also rule this out because it doesn't follow idiomatic formatting.)

(D) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church, as indicates its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as the artifacts --> NOT PARALLEL

(E) That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church is indicated by its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as by the artifacts --> PARALLEL/OK

We can eliminate options A, C, & D because they don't use parallelism for the "X as well as Y" idiom structure.

Now that we have this narrowed down to only 2 options, let's take a closer look at each one to determine which is the best choice:

(B) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, once probably being a church, was indicated by its eastward orientation, overall plan, and

This is INCORRECT because it changes the intended meaning of the sentence. This sentence is trying to say that the structure was indicated by something, which doesn't make sense. The indication is that the structure used to be a church. The eastward orientation, overall plan, and artifacts aren't how we know it's a ruined structure - it's how we know that structure likely used to be a church.

(E) That a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church is indicated by its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as by the

This is CORRECT! It's the only option that uses parallel structure with the "X as well as Y" idiom. It also has a clear meaning - the ruined structure was probably a church, and then it lists the evidence to back up that indication.


There you have it - option E is the correct choice!

Correct Aman.

The one thing to remember about a clause acting as a subject is that such subjects are always considered singular.

Eliminated due to the parallelism error in red. We need parallelism around our "and" construction.

schak2rhyme wrote:

Meaning error. The intended meaning is that the eastward orientation and overall plan are indicators that the structure used to be a church.

schak2rhyme wrote:
(C) Indicating that a ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church were its eastward orientation and overall plan, but also the artifacts, such as glass-oil lamp fragments, found at the site.


"but also" should jump out at us. If we have a "but also," we need a "not only" beforehand.

The verb tenses are also a hot mess. "Indicating" "was" "were"

Even without the technical errors, I would say this sentence is in a wacky construction, which should be taken with a grain of salt.

schak2rhyme wrote:
(D) A ruined structure found at Aqaba, Jordan, was probably a church, as indicates its eastward orientation and overall plan, as well as the artifacts, such as glass-oil lamp fragments, found at the site.


"indicates" is not in the correct verb tense.

We're starting our sentence with "That." Just beautiful (said with sarcasm)... let's keep reading.

"was a church is indicated by its X and Y, as well as by the A, such as B, C"

This is sentence is "wacky" in my opinion, but all of the idioms and parallelisms are in order... So we won't eliminate it.

Hi everyone,
I think that a good way to understand the "THAT issue" is reverse the sentence:

"X AND Y, AS WELL AS Z, INDICATE THAT A RUINED STRUCTURE... WAS PROBABLY A CHURCH". In this structure the focus is on the elements X, Y and Z, but the conclusion is weak. For this reason the sentence is expressed in passive voice:
"THAT A RUINED STRUCTURE... WAS PROBABLY A CHURCH IS INDICATED..."

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Rodrigo.
