Fully Underlined Sentences in Sentence Correction  [#permalink]

Hi all,

I am facing difficulty answering long & fully underlined sentences. I generally forget the meaning and miss out the details as I go through all the answer choices.
Generally, I don't use splits to answer my questions rather I depend on identifying the mistakes in the original sentence and pre-think the correct solution if I can. Otherwise, I go through the answer choices eliminating the wrong ones.
However, in the fully underlined sentences as I go through the answer choices there is information overload and I end up frustrated and committing mistakes.

I would like to know if there is any strategy to handle such questions ?

hi,

use the same technique you've mentioned above...but break the sentence down into parts...this is something that I learned from e-gmats free sc webinars, try to attend these free webinars whenever they're made available...

eg

Controlling most inroads to business ventures in Europe, economists argue that the U.S., with its diminished economic leverage there, now has reason to fear the European Common Market.

A) Controlling most inroads to business ventures in Europe, economists argue that the U.S., with its diminished economic leverage there, now has reason to fear the European Common Market.

B) Controlling most inroads to business ventures in Europe, the diminished economic leverage of the U.S. there is, according to economists, one reason to fear the European Common Market.

C) Because it controls most inroads to business ventures in Europe, a place where the U.S. have diminished economic leverage, economists argue that they now have a reason to fear the European Common Market.

D) Because it controls most inroads to business ventures in Europe, economists argue that the U.S.’s diminished economic leverage is a reason for the U.S. to fear the actions of the European Common Market.

E) Economists argue that the U.S., with its diminished economic leverage in Europe, now has reason to fear the actions of the European Common Market, which controls most inroads to business ventures in Europe.

part 1 - Controlling most inroads to business ventures in Europe economists argue that
part 2 - the U.S., (with its diminished economic leverage there)
part 3 - now has reason to fear the European Common Market.

error 1 - you can see that there's a modifier issue in this... 'Controlling most inroads to business ventures in Europe' should modify European market, but it is misplaced and seems it's modifying 'Economists'

only option E corrects this...hence it is the correct answer.
