1. it is easy to eliminate A as the usage spoils the intention--tells us urban houses and clustered houses together were called for
2. B for punctuation
3. C as it says with child care facilities included (with child care facilities is correct)
4. In the choice E, to include is crappy


D, IMHO

I also chose D as my answer. There are 2 types of construction that you should be aware of:

1) preposition + noun + past (or present) participles -----> such a construction is considered wrong

2) to include ----> is always wrong. It's better to say "including" or "that include(s)".


a) "for urban apartment houses including" ---> preposition + noun + participle = WRONG!
b) "to include" ---> WRONG!
c) "with child-care facilities included" ---> preposition + noun + participle = WRONG!
d) no mistakes there, so keep it.
e) "to include" is WRONG!

So the answer is D



once you know these 2 important rules, you're tough question becomes way too easy. It took me no more than 10 secs to solve this problem, using this simple rule.

IMO D.

you need a 'that' restricted clause here so you left with options B and D.

B is wrong because the comma infront of 'and for clustered suburban ..' seperates this from the 'that' clause.

so I choose D.

Also, if you consider the rule that "preposition + noun + participle" is always wrong and that "to include" is always wrong, that will narrow all of your answer choices except for D. Look at my previous explanation.

no because, in the case of your example, you have "included" and "including", which are redundant. You need only one of them and it's enough to have one of them in front of the answer choice.

Hi pupi.

I do like A) but

called for urban apartment houses _______

(A) including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including communal eating and social facilities (I think it's not right the house including facilities. Can any native speaker evaluate it please)
(B) that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities (red parts are not parallel)
(C) with child-care facilities included and for clustered suburban houses to include communal eating and social facilities (red parts are not parallel)
(D) that included child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities (although it is not ideal, for me, it preserve parallelism)
(E) to include child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities included (red parts are not parallel)

Hope it will help.

By the way, can you post the links of all 1000 sc questions you ask for in the 1000-sc-lets-collect-the-answers-85402.html#p639821 please?
