At the end of 2001, motion picture industry representatives said that there were about a million copies of Hollywood movies available online and expected piracy to increase with high-speed Internet connections that become more widely available.

A) online and expected piracy to increase with high-speed Internet connections that become more widely available

D) online, and that they expected the increase of piracy as high-speed Internet connections would become more widely available
E) online, and that they expected piracy to increase as high-speed Internet connections became more widely available

Hi Experts,

I have one more doubt. I eliminated the choices based on the following reasoning that the sentence should be of form:-

At the end of 2001, motion picture industry representatives said that One thing, and that Second thing.

or it should be of the form

At the end of 2001, motion picture industry representatives said that One thing, and expected that another thing.

However, the correct ans seems to be something like:- said that 1 and that they expected 2 which seems to me a bit awkward.
At the end of 2001, motion picture industry representatives said that there were about a million copies of Hollywood movies available online, and that they expected piracy to increase as high-speed Internet connections became more widely available


Your first interpretation is correct. The representatives said 2 things:

1. They said that there were about a million copies.
2. They also said that they expected piracy to increase.

The green highlighted portions are what the representatives said. (The verb "expected" is not parallel to the verb "said").


can you clear what i am missing : I understood the meaning as : Motion picture industry said that there were about a million copy of hollywood movies available online, and Motion picture industry expected piracy to increase with high - speed internet connections that became more widely available.

with that sense i was inclined to select A, only error i thought was become must be became. else A was correct.

my doubt is since expected can be tapped on to either with motion picture industry (or) said that they expected, is it becoming ambiguous in usage!

Thanks

can you please clarify this :

As high speed internet connections became more widely available, motion picture industry expected piracy would increase.
As high speed internet connections became more widely available, motion picture industry expected piracy to increase.

is both statement correct?
is first statement from conditional talking about future
and second statement assuming piracy has already started to increase

OG 2017 New Question


shouldn't it be that x and that y
instead of that x, and that y.


Hi! IMO, if 'and' is followed by a complete sentence with its own subject and verb, then it should be preceded by ','.

they expected piracy to increase as high-speed Internet connections became more widely available


You still have "that" before "they expected piracy to....."
Comma + and is used in lists OR to join 2 independent clauses.
In option E, "that" before "they expected...." does not make the portion independent clause.

"and" without a comma would have been preferable. Where am I incorrect ?

Hi Experts / chetan2u / mikemcgarry,

The sentence states that "At the end of 2001" Motion picture industry representative said 2 things-
1) that there were about a million copies of Hollywood movies available online
2) expected piracy to increase with high-speed Internet connections that become more widely available.

We need "That" after "and" to the sentence parallel. Only D and E left.

Furthermore, the sentence also mentions that they (representatives) "EXPECT" something-->
What do they expect..? that something will take place in future..
Therefore, if the sentence talks about past and we want to show future--> We need to use "WOULD"

So, D should be the answer.
Can you please assist whats wrong in this..?

If I talk about option E, the verbs "expected" and 'became" shows simultaneous actions and so the intended meaning is lost.

Please assist.
Thanks and Regards,
Prakhar






Note :What you are saying about would become is right here..But in the context of option D
We have other reasons to eliminate option D.

Generally, an as-clause must serve to modify an ACTION. It cannot serve to modify a noun or noun phrase. Example the increase of piracy as high-speed Internet connections would become ….is wrong..piracy to increase as high speed internet connections..(This is the correct construction)

Also

To refer to a percentage, we use increase OF:
an increase OF ten percent
To refer to something becoming larger or more prevalent, we use increase IN:
an increase IN the crime rate

I have a doubt regarding option E . comma with and ( ,and ) should present an Independent clause . Hpwever in option E , the sentence goes " ,and that they ..... widely available"
Is this to be considered a Independent clause with a relative pronoun "that"

Because you have not a comma before 'and.' When you create another IC in a two-part sentence, then a comma is customary to indicate that a new IC is being made.

In the second, you might see that there is no IC after ' and.'

daagh sir, there is a "comma " before and in the answer choice E.
- online, and that they expected .......widely available"

but it does not present an Independent clause

Please help
