BOOKMARKED
GMAT Club's Ultimate Grammar Book: (Issues,as per my understanding, that I have identified after reading first 50 pages)

Excercise3: Using Articles (Fill in the blanks)
2. _ chair is _ useful piece of furniture.
OA: The, A
Why "The" is the answer for first fill in the blank? Should not it be "A" as the sentence is not talking about a specific chair?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Exercise 5: Determining Quantity (Fill in the blanks)
1.John drank _ sodas
OA: "hardly any" cannot be used.

Why? According to the book, "any" can be used for both count nouns and non-count nouns. (Soda is countable.)

OA: "a great deal of" can be used
Why? As per the book, "a great deal of" can only be used with non-count nouns.(Soda is countable.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Exercise 14: Using Between/Among

4. Charles and Sandra took a romantic walk __ the park fountains.
OA: among

Why? Here "among" or "between" will be used for location.
using "among" would mean that Charles and Sandra were walking inside and throughout two or more park fountains. (this understating is as per book as well on the use of "among" for location).
This meaning does not make sense.

While using "between" would mean that Charles and Sandra were walking in a location in the middle of two park fountains or in a central area surrounded by park fountains. (this understanding is as per book as well on the use of "among" for location).


9. Walking __ the veterans' graves made my father very sad.
OA: among
Same issue as identified above

6. The children couldn't decide __ chocolate or vanilla ice cream.
OA: between

The sentence formation is incorrect. You cannot use between x or y, it has to be between x and y
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Exercise 6: Using the Present Tense Forms of Verbs (Fill in the blanks)

5. The company __ (build) a new store.
OA: is building

OA is correct but "has built" can be answer as well.


-----------------------------------------------
Please assist in resolving above anomalies.

Thanks
