Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have to agree to disregard this question. It is just plain ambiguous. I would have opted for B as it is the only one with the proper subject agreement. On the other hand, the past tense is not necessarily warranted with the context but given the better of the evil, I way prefer that to D where you have to subjectively see the two actions as part of a singular noun X AND Y.
There has certainly been some better examples of collective.
eg bread AND butter...
wanted to bring up 2 things to your attention regarding C
first, "dieting" is different from "diet" -> one may take "dieting" is as restricting yourself from certain foods as it isn't clear whether the gerund implies an action or a thing (diet)... I battle with these gerunds all the time and love it... where is mailtheguru???
second, "WILL"..., courtersy of MGMAT SC, should only be used when the outcome is 100% certain... do we know that it's certain??? what does one consider proper diet, etc... very ambiguous, so "WILL" changes the meaning of the sentence.... this point is supported by the OA choice D, which I believe is wrong for SVA
