(A) with the intention.
(B) the intention of which is
(C) intended
(D) and intending
(E) so intended as

Why A is wrong ..


Let's get rid of the fluff:

Asset allocators create portfolios, often in the form of mutual funds, [ANSWER] to turn in good results in both “bull” and “bear” markets.

It now reads:

Asset allocators create portfolios [ANSWER] to turn in good results in both “bull” and “bear” markets.

It should now be obvious that answer choice C (intended) is the correct option.

Asset allocators create portfolios, often in the form of mutual funds, with the intention to turn in good results in both ‘bull” and “bear” markets.

(A) with the intention
preposition phrase "with the intention to turn in good results in both ‘bull” and “bear” markets" modify "portfolios"
portfolios with the intention : nonsensical meaning

(B) the intention of which is
Incorrect
(C) intended
Correct : Modifies 'portfolios' correctly
(D) and intending
parallelism issue : Incorrect
(E) so intended as
Incorrect


Can prepositional phrase "with the intention to turn in good results in both ‘bull” and “bear” markets" modify 'verb - create' ?

Experts pls help

Why C is better than A?


Hi Experts

Please the difference between A and C
Both seem correct to me
I chose solely on the basis of concision .
Please explain what aspects of grammar this question is testing ?

noun+intended to do something is an idiom. "with intention to do" can modify the subject of main clause. here , the meaning should be "noun+intended to do" . the meaning " subject +with intention to do" is not logic here.
if we know the above idiom, our mind can realize which of two meaning is more logic.

that is all. dont thingk too much.

We should strike off the appositive. This makes it more clear. We need a participle form 'intended' here. C is perfectly right. B is close but wordy.
