Can you please provide some clarification on the use of the second "that" and whether it is need to maintain parallelism? I have seen contradictory responses in this thread as well as multiple other threads on this site.

For example: [I] suggest that [he does X] and that [he does Y].

Is the second "that" only necessary when the object is repeated? Thanks!

Check out this post - not very satisfying but hopefully helpful! If that doesn't help, let us know. :)

Great username, btw!

(A) that suggests that the elephant is descended from an aquatic animal, and its trunk originally evolving

(B) that has suggested the elephant descended from an aquatic animal, its trunk originally evolving

(C) suggesting that the elephant had descended from an aquatic animal with its trunk originally evolved- universal facts so had is wrong.

(D) to suggest that the elephant had descended from an aquatic animal and its trunk originally evolved- same as C

(E) to suggest that the elephant is descendedfrom an aquatic animal and that its trunk originally evolved

Reformatted the question based on the Official Guide 2015. (SC 128)


Descendent of elephant is universal so Option A and E. Option A second part has dependent clause separated by comma which wrong, Secondly suggested is copared with its in option A,Thirdly evolving is used instead of evoloved.

Reformatted the question based on the Official Guide 2015. (SC 128)


In C and D past perfect tense is used which is wrong as Elephant is still descended from an aquatic animal. Gone
A and B no need of , between descended from an aquatic animal and its trunk originally evolving. Gone
In E both above errors are resolved therefore E
