Dear Sager,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

Frankly, my friend, I am not impressed with this question at all. It took me about 5 seconds to determine the only possible answer.

You see, the proper idiom with "discourage" is
discourage from [gerund]

Only (E) has the proper idiomatic construction. Slam-dunk easy.

This question falls short of the high standards of the GMAT. Nevertheless, I love the art of Henri Rousseau, such as "The Dream," which I have seen at MoMA in NY.

Here's a more challenging SC question:
Immaculate Conception

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E.

The correct idiom is “discourage from exhibiting.” You can’t say “despite him completely lacking.”You have to say “despite his complete lack of.”
