Please suggest solution.


I think that this question has already been discussed (or maybe I've read the question somewhere else), however, I'll present my point -

First of all, let's decide if the Wall Street journal should have 'it' or 'their' - considering that it's a single entity, 'it' will be the correct pronoun.

A. Sound good - hold
B. Incorrect use of "their"
C. The intended meaning of the sentence changes
D. Same as B
E. Same as B and D

I'd go with A

I am confused, if the pronoun "it/their" refer to wall street journal or people reading the journal.

It should refer to wall street journal. The stem does not talk about people's financial troubles.

Hello Verbal Expert,

Why C is a wrong choice? Why the intended meaning got changed in C? For me, A is very awkward, so I rejected choice A without even looking at any answer choice. Please advise.

A implies: WSJ may have been read by more people before, but for some other reason, not for its financial troubles. For its financial troubles this is the first time it is read by so many people.

C implies: WSJ is read by maximum people this time; never before has it been read by so many people - it also has its financial troubles this time.

However in real GMAT more serious issues would generally differentiate a wrong answer from a right.

Take a look at option A and C
A:For all its financial troubles, never has the Wall Street Journal been read by more people
This option means that at no point in the past has WSJ been read by more people
C:With all its financial troubles, the Wall Street Journal has never been read by more people
This option refers to number of people who have never read the WSJ

I got this question wrong too. But once you read these two options carefully, you will get the subtle difference. Hope it helps

B,D, and E are out because their (plural pronoun) incorrectly refers to WSJ (singular noun).

Between A and C, A is correct as usage of 'with' modifier is incorrect in choice C

IMO, choice C doesn't show the contrast in statement as choice A does. Plus 'with' suggests people read WSJ because of its financial trouble.
