C. and including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

Ans: B
Step 1: Let's remove the part between two commas (until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom)
Step 2: Read the sentence without the comma portion (A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.)
NOTE: THE MEANING IMPIES THAT THE WARRANT WAS ISSUED FOR HENRY URICK AND A FEW OTHER PEOPLE .
HENCE, WE WILL COME DOWN TO OPTIONS b,c and e (they use connectors) . HOWEVER, C AND E USE AND which means both have equal importance and the verb should be plural. Since, both of these cases aren't true in our case scenario . We will eliminate c and e. Answer:B


Best of luckk! Dreams are reality!!

A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick, until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom, including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

According to meaning of the sentence, other people were arrested along with with Henry Urick, not including them. There's a difference between both. So answer is option B.

A. including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
B. along with eleven other people connected with his family's business empire. CORRECT.
C. and including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
D. for eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
E. and for including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire

A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick, until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom, including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

The sentence means that warrant was issued by NY prosecutor to arrest Henry Urick and eleven others who were connected to his family’s business empire.

In the non – underlined part of the sentence we can ignore the modifier ‘until .. telecom’ and formulate the sentence. This leaves us with only option A and B since C,D and E are for reasons as follows. A though looks good but ‘verb + ing’ modifier seems to say that Henry Urick includes eleven other people which is illogical.

A. including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire. – WRONG. As described above.
B. along with eleven other people connected with his family's business empire. – CORRECT. Using along with makes Henry Urick and eleven people a single entity aginst whom warrant is issued.
C. and including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire. – WRONG. Using ‘and’ and ‘verb + ing’ modifier together don’t make correct parallelism.
D. for eleven other people connected with his family's business empire. – WRONG. Comma + FANBOYS used for dependent clause which is incorrect.
E. and for including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire – WRONG. Redundancy error for using ‘for’ and ‘including’ together.

Answer (B).

C and E are incorrect because of the use of “and” to join a phrase to a main clause. The comma alone is enough in such situations.

The use of “for” in D makes the sentence awkward. When we remove the non-essential modifier, we get “A warrant was issued by a New York Prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urich, until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom for eleven other people connected with his family business.” D is therefore not the best choice.

A is also incorrect because “including” as used in this context modifies “eleven other people” and this doesn’t make sense. If we consider that “including” is preceded by a comma, then it modifies “until recently chairman of the mobile Telecommunications company Telecom” which doesn’t make sense either. Hence it can be eliminated. Besides, including means that something is part of a a group. So it’s use here suggests that “eleven other people” have to be part of an already mentioned group, which is not the case here.

B is the right answer in my view. The use of “along with” appropriately joins “..Henry Urich along with eleven other people connected with his family business.”

IMO E.

A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick, until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom, including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

A. including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

"the arrest of Henry including eleven other people" sounds illogically wrong => OUT

B. along with eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

"the arrest of Henry, along with 11 other people" sounds ok

C. and including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
"and including" => "including" has nothing to be paralleled with > OUT

D. for eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
I would consider this if it had an "and", without "and", this one is OUT

E. and for including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire

We have "and" and "for", yes, okay we have a parallel, but "including" here still has nothing to do. OUT

A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick,-------, including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

From above statement
A is clear
B,C- 'along with', 'and' are unnecessary
D,E - distorts the meaning

SO OA: A

A warrant was issued on Sunday by a New York prosecutor for the arrest of Henry Urick, until recently chairman of the mobile telecommunications company Telecom, including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.

A. including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
B. along with eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
C. and including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
D. for eleven other people connected with his family's business empire.
E. and for including eleven other people connected with his family's business empire


Official Explanation



Correct Answer: B

The best answer is B. The preposition for governs both Henry Urick and eleven other so along with is sufficient. In choice A, C and E, the word including is used incorrectly because the other people were arrested in addition to Henry Urick, and not included in his arrest
