Hi GMATNinja, daagh , AjiteshArun

Can you please tell me how the below is independent clause in D.

"an adult with such vision would be deemed legally blind."

I ignored it as independent clause because of "Such Vision" .

I am just a beginner. Looking for your help.

Thanks



Hi GMATNinja, daagh

Hi a12bansal,

The whole with such vision is a modifier (prepositional phrase, adjective for an adult). The such vision (noun phrase) is part of that modifier.

An adult with such vision would be deemed legally blind.

Let's cut this sentence down to:

An adult would be deemed legally blind.

Here it is slightly easier to see that an adult is the subject, and would be deemed is the verb. Now, the sentence is not trying to tell us that every adult would be deemed legally blind. That is where the with such vision comes in: only "an adult with such vision" would be deemed legally blind.

(A) As a baby emerges from the darkness of the womb with a rudimentary sense of vision, it would be rated about 20/500, or legally blind if it were an adult with such vision.

(B) A baby emerges from the darkness of the womb with a rudimentary sense of vision that would be rated about 20/500, or legally blind as an adult.

(C) As a baby emerges from the darkness of the womb, its rudimentary sense of vision would be rated about 20/500; qualifying it to be legally blind if an adult.

(D) A baby emerges from the darkness of the womb with a rudimentary sense of vision that would be rated about 20/500; an adult with such vision would be deemed legally blind.

(E) As a baby emerges from the darkness of the womb, its rudimentary sense of vision, which would be deemed legally blind for an adult, would be rated about 20/500.

The baby emerges from the darkness of the womb with a rudimentary sense of vision — it would be rated about 20/500, or "legally blind," as one expert puts it, but eyesight develops rapidly. Newborns start by looking at the edges of things, exploring. Even when the lights are turned out, as infra-red cameras show, an infant's eyes open wide to carry on its investigation of its surroundings. At eight weeks, it can differentiate between shapes of objects as well as colors (generally preferring red, then blue); at three months, it begins to develop stereoscopic vision.


A. baby could not be rated 20/500 :-). It has to be vision. It is not clear what it is referring to. , or legally blind.....is not parallel... it would be rated 20/500 or legally blind. Moreover comma is not required.
B. vision that would be rated about 20/500 is ok...but after or ...legally blind is incorrect. Not parallel. vision cannot be blind....
C. qualifying it to be legally blind if an adult doesn't have any verb.
D. seems correct.
E. which would be deemed legally blind...which here refers to vision...incorrect.
