Greetings everyone
I have a question regarding option C.
If we remove previously from C would it be correct then, ignoring passive construction.
Please help.



Hello arvind910619,


I would be glad to help you with your query. :-)

Use of previously most certainly creates redundancy error in Choice C. So removing this word from Choice C will surly take care of this error.

The passive construction in Choice C fails to convey that it is the company that would have conceded the mass market sales to rivals in the past. Since this information is exclusively present in the original choice, removal of this information in Choice C leads to distortion in the intended meaning. Hence, use of passive voice actually makes Choice C incorrect.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Hello Moderators,

Do you think the question should be underlined? Also, the line at the end in blue gives away what is the answer choice, maybe its better to hide it.

Doing this will help people like me who are attempting the questions using timers.

Thanks in advance

(A) they would in the past have conceded to rivals
(B) they would have conceded previously to their rivals
(C) that in the past would have been conceded previously to rivals
(D) it previously would have conceded to rivals in the past
(E) it would in the past have conceded to rivals


Subject is singular: company. hence a and b are incorrect. D is incorrect bcoz of redundancy previously and past.
hence correct option is E. it refers to singular subject company.
