A and D are passive.

B illogically says that the investigation was carried out by officials of 12 hospitals.
E is awkward.

is it C ?

Please underline the SC question before posting.

Spoiler: :: OE
OG Verbal Review 2, SC Question# 61

Parallelism; Logical predication

This sentence is primarily concerned with presenting the findings of an investigation, so the main subject should be investigation, and the main verb should be has found. The findings are most efficiently presented in a parallel series of relative clauses beginning with that.

A) The phrase finding that all. . . has nothing to attach to in this sentence, because hospitals has been made the subject of the sentence; the items in the list of findings are not presented in parallel form.
B) The singular subject requires a singular verb; the items in the list of findings are not. presented in parallel form.
C) Correct. The sentence's structure makes it clear and logical.
D) The preposition with governs both examples of how the hospitals break the law, so parallelism requires that both verbs assume the ing ending.
E) The sentence is repetitive and indirect; the list of findings is not presented in parallel form.

The correct answer is C.



If we "cut the fluff" with answer choice (C) - we can see it as:

(C): ... an investigation of twelve hospitals ... has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work

1) "Investigation" is singular - so "has found" is correct.

2) The verbs BREAK, WORK, and WORK are conistent--each list item has "that" - so that's consistent.

Everything checks off and no grammar issues. (C) looks good.

A) twelve hospitals have been investigated by state medical officials, finding that all twelve consistently break the laws, many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work---- Incorrect, because first Investigation has found that hospitals break the laws not state offices or the tweleve hospitals like this sentence implies. Also the many... and that is not parallel.
B) an investigation by state medical officials of twelve hospitals have found all twelve consistently breaking the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working---- An investigation does not match with have. SVA error.
C) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work--- CORRECT.
D) twelve hospitals were investigated by state medical officials who found all twelve breaking the laws, with many residents working longer than 24 hours straight, and more than half the surgical residents work---- Not parallel. the investigation has found, not the state medical officials.
E) an investigation by state medical officials has found that, of twelve hospitals, all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working--- with is incorrectly used. Also the of twelve hospitals, all twelve sounds words and awkward.

“that” certainly could follow a comma if there were a series of “that”-clauses in parallel: like in the above case.

“that” has many different uses. You can check out this post:

Please note that the comma has nothing to do with that. The comma is needed because there are three things (as part of the list) that state medical officials have found.

On a separate note, that, whether used as a relative pronoun or a conjunction always starts a clause.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses the various avatars of that, their application and examples in significant detail. If you can PM you email-id, I can send you the corresponding section.

While there are quite a few errors, an easy way to eliminate A:

...finding that all twelve ...., many residents ..., and that more than half...

Clearly there are three elements. From a parallelism perspective, since the first and third elements start with that, the second element (many residents ...) should also start with that.

My 2 cents.
Almost a decade after New York State passed laws to protect patients
by reducing the grueling hours worked by medical residents,
twelve hospitals have been investigated by state medical officials, finding that
all twelve consistently break the laws,
many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that
more than half the surgical residents work
more than 95 hours a week.

A) twelve hospitals have been investigated by state medical officials, finding that all twelve consistently break the laws, many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work
>>[Finding is wrong here as it is modifying incorrect sub "12 hospitals", "finding that and that" makes the 2 items in list whereas there total 3.]
B) an investigation by state medical officials of twelve hospitals have found all twelve consistently breaking the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working
>>[an investigation is sing hence have is incorrect; Whats the purpose of "that" here?]
C) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work.
[Hold on to it.Presenting all the 3 items in list previous error seems to be fixed.]
D) twelve hospitals were investigated by state medical officials who found all twelve breaking the laws, with many residents working longer than 24 hours straight, and more than half the surgical residents work
>>[What is "with" doing here ? With 800 score in real exam, he topped the list. Above usage of with falls in same line.It explains how Official found hospitals breaking the law. Also ||sm seems to be missing between working & work]
E) an investigation by state medical officials has found that, of twelve hospitals, all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working
>>[found that .. , that many comes as a list but where is "and". Again usage of with is not correct here.]

My question is how can investigation, the subject of the clause in the correct answer choice C, can be the subject? You find something as a result of investigation, investigation does not find anything! As this is an official guide question so it has to be right, but can someone please advise if this construction is Ok and makes sense?

B) an investigation by state medical officials of twelve hospitals have found all twelve consistently breaking the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working--- investigation .. have found --- SV number error

C) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work --- Correct list parallelism maintained

D) twelve hospitals were investigated by state medical officials who found all twelve breaking the laws, with many residents working longer than 24 hours straight, and more than half the surgical residents work ---- list parallelism fouled

E) an investigation by state medical officials has found that, of twelve hospitals, all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, with more than half the surgical residents working --- List parallelism flouted

After all, how can the officials find the truth by just looking at the hospitals; if only when they go deep into the affairs they can know the facts and that is the investigation. It is not unusual to write so. For example, we often say that an enquiry into the tragedy revealed this and that or a probe by an endoscope confirmed a tumor in the throat etc; we don't mention the agents of the probe or the enquiry. The important thing is the result of the investigation and not who conducted the investigation. Therefore, we can accept the investigation as the subject.

Indeed...since the investigation found 3 things, a comma must separate them.

So what if A and D are in passive? Is dat enough to discard an answer choice?

No, construction in passive voice is not enough to eliminate a choice.

Why A is wrong?
A present participle modifier (-ing) refers to either the entire previous clause or the subject of the previous clause.
Here the present participle modifier " finding that all twelve ....." erroneously refers to the subject of the previous clause "twelve hospitals". "Twelve hospitals" did not find, "state medical officials" did. Therefore, "state medical officers" should have been the subject of the previous clause rather than " twelve hospitals".

Why D is wrong?
The preposition "with" introduces two examples how the laws were broken. Both these examples should be made parallel. Since the first example has a gerund with an -ing ending ("working"), the second should also be a gerund with an -ing ending. However the second example is a verb ("work").

Hello Experts,
Thank you for the explanations but I just cannot get 1 question of my mind - How can an investigation find something (on its own)? I ruled out option C first, thinking that it has to be the people doing the investigation who find whatever they have to.
Kindly help me understand what am I missing here?

Thanks in advance! :)

This is official GMAT question. Thus, simply keep in mind that GMAT allows the usage " investigation has found". The following example is somewhat similar:

Investigation has revealed that....

One may argue that investigation on its own did not reveal anything - the investigators did. Yet the above usage is valid. Similarly Investigation has found... is also valid as per GMAT.

I have few doubts related to the question.
Almost a decade after New York State passed laws to protect patients by reducing the grueling hours worked by medical residents, twelve hospitals have been investigated by state medical officials, finding that all twelve consistently break the laws, many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work more than 95 hours a week.

Correct answer is C
Almost a decade after New York State passed laws to protect patients by reducing the grueling hours worked by medical residents,an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work.

i) Almost a decade after New York State passed laws to protect patients by reducing the grueling hours worked by medical residents,
ii) an investigation of twelve hospitals by state medical officials has found that all twelve consistently break the laws, that many residents work longer than 24 hours straight, and that more than half the surgical residents work.

My Question :
1) Is the part i) Dependent Clause ?
2) Is Almost a decade after equivalent to subordinate conjunction AFTER?
3) Is that why a comma has been put to connect (i) to Independent clause (ii)?
