A...The clause after the semicolon should have a complete meaning...That's done correctly in A...

well thanks for the answer but I did not understand when we use semicolon ?

two indepemdent clauses can be connected properly using following structures
1.(INDEPEMDENT CLAUSE);(INDEPEMDEMT CLAUSE)
2.(IC),FANBOYS (IC)
HERE THE SECOMD CLAUSE IS AN INDEPEMDENT STATEMENT.SO WE NEED EITHER STRUCTURE 1 PT STRUCTURE 2

Growing competitive pressures may be encouraging auditors to bend the rules in favor of clients; auditors may, for instance, allow a questionable loan to remain on the books in order to maintain a bank’s profits on paper.

“Growing competitive pressures may be encouraging auditors to bend the rules in favor of clients” is an independent clause.

(A) clients; auditors may, for instance, allow
Pressures may be in favor of clients; auditors may allow ... (No problems here) Correct usage of semicolon

(B) clients, as an instance, to allow
Pretty sure it is "for an instance"

(C) clients, like to allow
Does not make sense

(D) clients, such as to be allowing
Does not make sense

(E) clients; which might, as an instance, be the allowing of
You cannot start a sentence with "which". ";" indicates a separation of two independent clauses.

Hi,

I will see if I can help you Sachin,

In this example 'for instance' means something similar to 'for example'. In this context, when giving an example on a point 'as an instance' is not the correct idion.

"as an instance" is not awful full stop, and there are times where it could be used. You can use it in the phrase 'as an instance of' to illustrate when one thing is an example of something else.

Hope that helps.

James

if OPTION D were "clients ,such as allowing" or "clients ,such as to allow" then would the option be correct?

Hi, Nanishora,

E-gmat's video provides the full explanation and reasoning so I'd watch that.

However, briefly:

B is incorrect because both it distorts the meaning of the sentence, and 'as an instance' is incorrect.

'for instance' is correct here, as it shows that we are seeing one example of the practice explained in the opening section. It's essentially a synonym for 'for example'

Cheers,

James

sir,can you please share the link of the particular egmat video ?
