Hello GMAT friends,

First time posting here. As an ESL, I’ve always just muddled through the grammar portions of standardized tests. For the GMAT, I chanced upon the GMAT club grammar book and decided to review everything from the ground up. It’s been very helpful, and there are just a few questions that I would like help on: (I only finished part I)

P. 82, Ex 23, #8
Correct answer: ‘She was as shocked as I to see the test results.’
Would it be just as correct to say ‘She was as shocked as I was to see the test results. ‘ ?

P. 85, Either/Neither
Is the verb form of ‘win’ correct in the following cases? Which subject determines the verb form?
Either the bird or the snake wins.
Either the bird or the snakes win.
Either the birds or the snake win.
Either the birds or the snakes win.

When the bird or the snake win, …
When the birds or the snake win, …
When the birds or the snake win, …
When the birds or the snakes win, …

P. 87, #5
Correct answer: ‘...by the time I arrived… all my relatives had been gone. ‘
Is it correct to also say ‘...by the time I arrived… all my relatives had gone away.‘ ?
(I wasn’t sure if I had to use past perfect continuous here.)

P.93, #22
Correct answer: ‘My sister… still hasn’t decided what country she wants to visit...’
Could we have used “which country” instead of “what country” here? Would it be better to use “which” or would it depend on the meaning?

P.97, #35
Correct answer: ‘William Basse.. is best known for his Epitaph on Shakespeare, which is a poem in the form of a sonnet.’
Why is choice c incorrect? Is it only because of awkwardness, or is there a grammatical error?
Choice c: William Basse… is best known by the way of his Epitaph on Shakespeare sonnet poem.

P.99, #39
Correct answer: ‘The Soviet Red Army formed at least 42 divisions during the Second World War which had substantial ethnic majorities in their composition.’
Why isn’t there a comma after Second World War?
Would it be incorrect if I substituted ‘that’ for ‘which’ in the correct answer?

Thank you!
