Hello egmat,

Could you please explain this OG 18 Question using the egmat 3 step process?

Thanks



Hello snjainpune,

Sorry for replying late. But better late than never. :grin:


Gusty westerly winds will continue to usher in a seasonably cool air mass into the region, as a broad area of high pressure will build and bring fair and dry weather for several days.


Meaning Analysis: The meaning is pretty clear. Gusty westerly winds will bring in cool air mass into the region. And a big area of high pressure will build and bring dry weather for many days.


Error Analysis: Let's identify the errors now.

i. The sentence uses incorrect idiom usher in. As a verb, only usher is used.
ii. Use of as is incorrect because in the context of the sentence. As can mean because as well as while.
iii. The sentence intends to convey that while A happens, B will happen. Hence, use of the verb will build is not correct as these verbs do not convey the sequence of the events clearly.


Answer Choice Analysis:


A. to usher in a seasonably cool air mass into the region, as a broad area of high pressure will build and: Incorrect for the reason stated in the Error Analysis section.


B. ushering in a seasonably cool air mass into the region and a broad area of high pressure will build that: Incorrect

i. The expression continue ushering is incorrect. The word continue is generally followed by to verb phrase.
ii. Two independent clauses have been connected only by and.
iii. The express will bring that build makes no sense at all.


C. to usher in a seasonably cool air mass to the region, a broad area of high pressure building, and: Incorrect

i. Same expression error as in Choice A.
ii. The structure a broad area of high pressure building seems to act as a noun modifier that illogically modifies the preceding noun the region.
iii. This choice says that the gusty westerly winds will bring in dry weather, the information not in sync with the meaning conveyed by the original sentence.


D. ushering a seasonably cool air mass in the region, with a broad area of high pressure building and: Incorrect

i. Same expression error as in Choice B.
ii. The words building and bring are not parallel.


E. to usher a seasonably cool air mass into the region while a broad area of high pressure builds, which will: Correct

I do understand that the noun modifier which is preceded by a verb. However, I will regard this usage as just one-off usage and will continue to use which as a relative pronoun modifier modifying the immediate preceding noun.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Gusty westerly winds will continue to usher in a seasonably cool air mass into the region, as a broad area of high pressure will build and bring fair and dry weather for several days.

A. to usher in a seasonably cool air mass into the region, as a broad area of high pressure will build and
B. ushering in a seasonably cool air mass into the region and a broad area of high pressure will build that
C. to usher in a seasonably cool air mass to the region, a broad area of high pressure building, and
D. ushering a seasonably cool air mass in the region, with a broad area of high pressure building and
E. to usher a seasonably cool air mass into the region while a broad area of high pressure builds, which will

I would like to present my theory for rejection option A.

I focussed solely on the second part of the sentence
" as a broad area of high pressure will build and bring fair and dry weather for several days."
which equals
As broad area will build & bring X - "but is the Broad area of high pressure is doing both the action of building & bringing "
Isn't it suppose to mean - high pressure area is responsible for the dry weather

Intended meaning - Broad area of high pressure is created and due to this we have fair & dry weather.

Am I right here in my reasoning? @ experts

A real tough question. But when you go by meaning only E makes. Of course i came to that conclusion after choosing the incorrect answer!

verb,which : are generally considered wrong, is this the exception to the question. Never eliminated on the basis of being verb and action verb before.
