(A) for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable

(A) for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable

"was knowledgeable" is awkward. I can't put my finger on exactly why I don't like this answer. it also is much wordier than E.

(B) for everyone in attendance did not know

This changes the meaning. This means that no one in attendance knew, but that's not what the original sentence means.

(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing
"with" is not the proper word to use.
(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable
"with" is not the proper word to use.
(E) for not everyone attending knew

Often shortest is best. "for" is correct and "knew" is the best form of the verb.

Could anyone help on the above question please

"For" here is used as "because". So lets replace "for" for "because":

(A) because not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable :- passive

(B) because everyone in attendance did not know :- do not see any gramatical error but "everyone in attendance" is little awakward.

(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing :- "with every one"?

(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable :- "with every one"?

(E) because not everyone attending knew :- imo, "not everyone attending" is better than "everyone in attendance".

So E is best.
Sourse?

Hi guys,

IMO E

(A) for not everyone in attendance was knowledgeable pasive voice is not needed
(B) for everyone in attendance did not know in attendace is not the right way to modify everyone
(C) with everyone in attendance not knowing for me, with does not make sense here
(D) with everyone attending not knowledgeable for me, with does not make sense here
(E) for not everyone attending knew Hold

OA and Source?

Thanks

I am bit confused in D and E.....I went with E but E says "not everyone" means some of them knew about the direction which I think changes the meaning of the sentence...therefore IMO D

Can someone elaborate on this?

Hi I would go with E

The question stem includes, 'for not everyone'.....option E includes the same phrase, therefore the meaning does not change.Since the question begins with during...'for not everyone attending' is the correct phrase, not sure if saying that the tense agreement between during and attending is correct though.
