PRINCETON REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Step 1: Read the Sentence and Identify the Error. Did you see that the error was one of parallel construction; yielding … rather than face? Good.

Step 2: Eliminate All Answer Choices Containing That Error. This gets rid of choices (A), (D), and (E).

Step 3: Look for Grammar Errors in the Remaining Answer Choices and Eliminate Them. Answer choices (B) and (C) say the same thing, and both are grammatically correct, but choice (B) is written in the passive voice. So although there is nothing technically wrong with (B), it is very awkward and confusing to read. Choice (C) is a better answer.

C. The clause starts with after, therefore after comma a result is most probable. To yield is parallel to to face. B has a problem, Gore is utilized in fragment before rather thereby not giving the subject ‘gore’ to the part after rather

A) ((yielding the nomination)) to Bill Bradley was chosen by Gore - incorrect.

B) ((to yield the nomination)) to Bill Bradley was chosen by Gore - incorrect.

C) Gore chose //to yield// the nomination to Bill Bradley - parallel structure and correct grammar.

D) Gore chose //yielding// the nomination to Bill Bradley - not parallel.

E) yielding the nomination to Bill Bradley - incorrect.

Thus, C stands out.
