https://www.nytimes.com/1999/08/17/science/selfless-helpful-intelligent-wasp-yellow-jackets-much-more-than-evil-guests.html?pagewanted=2

Yellow jackets, by contrast, sting readily when anybody goes after their nests, which is why Dr. Wenzel has been stung at least a thousand times. There are 15 species of yellow jacket in this country, and all have the delightful ability to sting their victims, not once, as a honeybee will, but multiple times. The difference lies in the structure of the stinger. Whereas a honeybee stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, resulting in the evisceration and death of the bee, the yellow jacket stinger is comparatively smooth, and can be pulled out and reinserted as its possessor sees fit.

Hi debayan,

This is my response to a PM on this one.

As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury.

(A) As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing
(B) As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
(C) The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes
(D) The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing
(E) The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes

Since the meaning of this sentence is not difficult to understand, let’s evaluate the errors in this sentence:

Error Analysis:
1. There is no antecedent for “this”. Being a pronoun, “this” must refer to a noun, but from the meaning of the sentence, we know that an action results in something.
2. Also, only an action can “result in” something. We cannot say “a thing” “result in” something.
3. Notice the construction of this part “… of stinging causing…”. This is ungrammatical. We can only use a verb-ing word in this construction if it is a modifier.

PoE:

(A) As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing: Incorrect for the reasons stated above.

(B) As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes: Incorrect. Per this choice, there is no independent clause in the sentence.

(C) The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes: Incorrect. It repeats the second error of choice A. Per this choice, the sentence says “The honeybee’s stingers” (a thing) results in something.

(D) The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing: Incorrect. It repeats the third error in the original choice.

(E) The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes: Correct.

Hope this helps. :)
Thanks.
Shraddha.

A. As the honeybee's stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury.
-In this choice, staying where it is inserted is a modifier that provides additional information about the stinger. Thus, the information following the modifier, prefaced with "this results," does not correctly refer to anything in the sentence (if anything, it describes the stinger itself, rather than the fact that the stinger stays where it is inserted)

B. As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
-Since each clause is introduced by "connecting" punctuation ("as" and "with") this sentence contains no subject.

C. The honeybee's stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes
-Similar to choice A, this choice uses the modifier heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted to describe the stinger. By removing this modifier (The honeybee's stinger results in the fact that ...), it becomes obvious that the sentence incorrectly states that the stinger itself, rather than the properties of the stinger, results in something. Moreover, the phrase "the fact that" is awkward and unnecessary.

D. The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing
- This choice incorrectly equates the verbs stays and results. However, the sentence intends to indicate that the result is due to fact that the stinger stays where it is inserted.

E. The honeybee's stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
-CORRECT. This choice clearly states that the stinger (subject) stays (verb), resulting in particularly poor circumstances for the honeybee!

My bet is on D. Here are reasons-
A. As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this
results in the act of stinging causing---this
B. As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the
result that the act of stinging causes---with the result
C. The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in
the fact that the act of stinging causes---results in the fact
D. The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results
in the act of stinging causing---good
E. The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the
result that the act of stinging causes---with the result

Let me know the OA.

Are you sure the answer choce is C ? My say is that the answer is D

If the answer is C, what is "it" referring to ? I thought the subject is "honeybee’s stinger" which is a possesive so i would expect it's rather than it.
C. The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in
the fact that the act of stinging causes

Could you please provide with the explanation ?

Yes, I've looked up this question in another thread, and the OA is E! I managed to narrow my answer choices to C and E, but I chose C. Here's what I know: present participle + another present participle (stinging causing) is wrong because you don't know whether the first one is modifying the second one or the vise versa. That eliminates answer choices A, B,and D.

Another thing with option B is that the sentence starts with "as" treating the first part of the sentence as a dependant clause, so naturally you would expect to find an independent clause after the comma, but you don't. So it's wrong.

Now the tricky part is between C and E where I was stuck. The part that I should have paid attention in option C is the fact that it essentially says, "The honeybee's stinger results in the fact." So stingers automatically result to a fact??? It's illogical. So option E remains!

(A) As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing
(B) As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
(C) The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes

(E) The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes



Hi Souvik,

Really a good question ... i think took me around 4-5 min to guess the answer (was between A & E).Finally had to look at the OA :(

I will take a shot at this question (as per my understanding)


(A) As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing

1)this -- pronoun -- does not have the clear refferent -- should refer to the staying where it is inserted which is a clause and hence cannot be referred to.

(B) As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes

1)As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted -- Dep. Clause
2)with the result that the act of stinging causes --- Modifier modifying stays
3)Indep. Clause missing ?

(C) The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes

1)does not conveys the intended meaning of the sentence....

(D) The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing

1)Seems from the meaning of the sentence that stinger results in the act of stinging whereas it is the act of stinger staying which results in.... (as per my understanding)

(E) The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes
Correct option

But what bothers me in this sentence is that this sentence (Option E) defines two characterstics of the Honeybee's stinger whereas the original sentence started with the meaning that
As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted

it looks as if since the honeybee's stinger is heavily barbed it stays where it is inserted (Pls correct me if i'm misintrepreting the meaaning of the sentence here)


Pls correct me if i'm missing some pt here.

@Ivan: couldn't agree more with you :)

Thanks

This question is mainly based on meaning Clarity.
Evaluation of each option.

In A, the meaning of the sentence is completely distorted.
It is trying to show that action "staying" is subordinate to "heavily barbed". Incorrect.

In B, there is sentence fragment.
There is no verb in the first part and also in the second part.
Option B makes the entire sentence a fragment. Incorrect

In C, the meaning is incorrect.
It shows that the stinger results in the act of stinging. But it is the action of "staying where it is inserted" which results in the act of stinging.

D shows that staying and resulting are two different actions. Incorrect

E - Correct.
In this "with the result" clearly modifies the action "stays where it is inserted".

Thanks

Hi Debayan,

I do feel that you have gotten the mood right here. However, I still want to add a few things here to make things simpler and easier to apply.
Always remember that the modifiers are just some extra information in the sentence they help us pad up the sentence and make it look “fat” (complex). We should always be able to identify the core of the sentence that is the SV pair.

Look at this sentence with choice C:
The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes the bee to sustain a fatal injury.

We can easily eliminate “heavily… inserted” as it the exta padding in the sentence. The core of the sentence reads “The honeybee’s stinger results in…”. This usage is not correct. Just the stinger by itself does not result in anything. It is the action of insertion of the stinger that leads to fatal injury for honeybee’s. There has to be some kind of action associated for the use of “results in”.

Hope this helps. :)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Apart from the important meaning perspective the option C also faced a serious parallelism issue.

See the modifier again - 'heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted.'

The modifier is not parallel at all. ed form modifier and ing form modifier cannot be parallel.

Hence the option C is also wrong from that perspective.

Thanks and regards,
amit

As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury.

Lets Break the sentence:
Clause 1: As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted
Clause 2: this results in the act of stinging causing[/u] the bee to sustain a fatal injury :

Here wrong idiom is used, As X as Y is used for comparison and As + noun used to show the role. Here use of As is wrong.
This and These can not stand alone, they have to be used with a noun.

A. As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this results in the act of stinging causing

B. As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes

C. The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in the fact that the act of stinging causes - This sentence is grammatically correct but wrong in meaning. The honeybee stinger result in the fact. Under time pressure i also chose this choice wrongly.

D. The heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, and results in the act of stinging causing - Comma + and starts a new clause. In this sentence 'and' clause do not have a subject.

E. The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes- This seems to be the best option. However in am confused about with clause here.

act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury.


A. As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this
results in the act of stinging causing

1> As the honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed, staying where it is inserted, this
results =>does n't result in the act of stinging.

2> THis is standalone pronoun. Doesn't work

B. As the heavily barbed stinger of the honeybee stays where it is inserted, with the
result that the act of stinging causes

C. The honeybee’s stinger, heavily barbed and staying where it is inserted, results in
the fact that the act of stinging causes

the stinger doesn't result in anything.
it can only be action that results in something.

in the act of stinging causing

E. The honeybee’s stinger is heavily barbed and stays where it is inserted, with the result that the act of stinging causes

A - structure: Sub-ordinate clause - Main clause
This -> refers to entire clause which is not correct - Pronoun cannot refer to entire clause.

B - sub-ordinate clause - Main clause
As... and with... both are prepositional phrases and not Main clause. So the option has no Main clause.

C - "The honeybee's stinger... results in the fact" the main clause doesn't represent an complete thought.

D - comma+and => connects 2 IC. The second clause "results in the act of stinging causing the bee to sustain a fatal injury" doesn't have a verb.

E - parallel structure The honeybee's stinger is heavily... & stays where...
prepositional phrase "with the result..." answers the question WHAT happens to honeybee’s stinger. Here the prepositional phrase acts as noun modifier
modifying subject of the main clause.

Also, here we have inverted sentence structure. Prepositional phrase+verb => of stinging causes. So verb "causes" belongs to subject "fatal injury"

If you like "kudo"...
