I feel, with the intention is correct. So I will go for A.

Well Sudeep...it cant be A

A suggests that portfolios have the intention rather than the allocators.

we need a participle to modify the portfolio....since we dont have "intending" as a participle(adjective)...we need to look for an option that uses the other participle(adjective) i.e. "intended"

Hence i feel the answer shud be C ...correct me if am wrong!!

Dear all,

OA is C.

Nevertheless, if "intending" were an option, would it be better than "intended"?

Thanks,

Thanks!
Agree that we need a participle phrase to modify the portfolios, as there is already a modifier placed for portfolios.
A creates ambiguity.

Also, "intending" and "intended" imply different meaning. In this case, "intending" will be incorrect to modify the 'portfolios'.

(A) with the intention

(E) so intended as

this is clear C. you need a past verb to modify 'portfolios'.
"]Asset allocators create portfolios [modifier] that are intended to turn in good results in both “bull” and “bear” markets.

and again, you can remove 'that are' (reduced restrictive clause) also.

So C is the winner.

This is a good close choice between A and C. However I would like to go with C since "with the intention to" is not idiomatically correct. It should have "With the intention of turning in" or getting good results. Here again the construction of the sentence would be such that the subject should be Asset allocators..

C is very clear and intended clearly modifies portfolios. Hence, I would like to go with C.

Kenable is right. The right idiom should be "With the intention of turning in"

Thanks,

Let me rephrase the clause and see if it makes sense: "...portfolios which are intended to beat the market."

I was between A and C and then read it aloud and I think (and this is just me thinking) the reason A can't work is bc it would have to say "with the intent..to" not the "with the intention..to"

so its un-idiomatic

(A) with the intention Correct. "With the intention to .." is the modifier clause referring to Asset allocators.
(B) the intention of which is it is not clear what "which" is referring to
(C) intended "intended to" is used a modifier referring to portfolio. The sentence implies that ... portfolios intend to turn in good results...
(D) and intending
(E) so intended as

A nice SC.

Rephrase the original sentence "With the intention to turn in good fortunes......, Asset allocators create....

It is a question from ETS paper Test No. 55 Question No. 17, the OA is C. "intended" is participle that modifies the subject of the preceding clasue that is "Asset allocators", A is wrong because it changes the meaning as if the "portfolios" are "with the intention" where as the "asset allocators" are "with the intention".

Thanks crejoc. I understand your point. "C" appear to be the correct answer. 1 Kudo for you.

How can I get the ETS paper tests. Any link to the download material will be helpful.

did you read the previous post of mine?, "intended" here is past particle. It modifies the subject "Asset allocators" not portfolios.

according to you intended modifies the Asset allocators, so that the asset allocators will turn in good results, am I right?
