Is it D ?

The verb in the underlined part refers to discrimination it should be singular as in D or E.

Thanks for the referral. I had visited that link before but I think the discussion in that link is difficult to follow. So I started a new thread.

Others, please provide you answer with explanation in this thread.

Anyhow, in my opinion in choice E, the presence of word "over" is questionable. The presence of "over" will warrant the use of the word "favor" as is done in D.

Furthermore I am not sure whether the word "occupation" can be ommitted without the lose of clarity.



Thank you.

okay..

here discrimination is singular subject.

we need singular verb here.

so A,B and C are out.

only D and E left.

D is not following proper parallel structure.

E is the best here.

i also feel that ommision of "occupations" is reducing clarity.

but in given choices.. E is best with minimal errors

You seem to have not paid any attention to my reasoning. What are your thoughts on my reasoning?
