Recent interdisciplinary studies advance the argument that emotions, including those deemed personal or private is a social phenomenon, though one inseparable from bodily response.


(A) private is a social phenomenon, though one inseparable

(B) private, are social phenomena that are inseparable

(C) private are a social phenomenon but are not those inseparable

(D) private???are social phenomena but not separable

(E) also as private emotions, are social phenomena not inseparable

Hi Gmat Ninja,

(A) private is a social phenomenon, though one inseparable

(B) private, are social phenomena that are inseparable

(C) private are a social phenomenon but are not those inseparable

(D) private—are social phenomena but not separable

(E) also as private emotions, are social phenomena not inseparable

I understand why all other options are incorrect , but i am curious to know in option B, correct option, how that is able to refer to emotions ?

Hi Ninja,

Can a prepositional phrase be both Noun and Adverbial Modifier?

Sentence: She placed the cat ON THE COUCH

I'm studying from Manhattan GMAT SC book. It says

1) If the modifier answers a question about the noun, it's a noun modifier.
2) If the modifier answers a question about the action, it's an adverbial modifier.

The modifier "ON THE COUCH" answers two questions.

1) Where is the cat? ON THE COUCH (Noun modifier)

2) Where did she place the cat? ON THE COUCH (Adverbial Modifier)

Is it possible for a propositional phrase to be both? Or my understanding of them is wrong? Please clarify. Thanks a lot.

Hi GMAT-Ninja,

I had a small doubt regarding the Sentence Correction questions.
I am not pretty clear on finding the errors in the given original sentence.
As a result, my approach to solve the problem is still a bit sketchy.
Any strategy,as to what errors should I be looking for initially in the sentence.

Hi Ninja,

Can you please explain the use of past perfect tense in this sentence (Official question, link at the end of query):

Around 1900, fishermen in the Chesapeake Bay area landed more than seventeen million pounds of shad in a single year, but by 1920, over-fishing and the proliferation of milldams and culverts that blocked shad from migrating up their spawning streams had reduced landings to less than four million pounds.

The discussions on the forum say that since the action happened before 1920 so past perfect should be used. However, there are not 2 but 3 time periods in the question - around 1900, between 1900 and 1920, and 1920. If we are using simple past for the first action/time 'around 1900, fishermen......landed....', then how is the use of past perfect justified for second time/action.

Hi GMATNinja

If I have a sentence with many "of's" e.g. hundreds of books of mammals what is the subject? What will dictate whether the verb is singular or plural? Thank you in advance.
