Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.

(A) Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.

(B) Discovered in 1884, the asteroid lda, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

(C) In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid lda, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter.

(D) The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

(E) Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Ida the Asteroid

(A) Meaning / Verb (having been named)

(B) CORRECT

(C) Sentence Structure

(D) Idiom (to orbit)

(E) Parallelism (X and Y); Idiom (to orbit)


First glance

The entire sentence is underlined; keep an eye out for Sentence Structure, Meaning, Modifier, and Parallelism issues.

Issues

(1) Meaning / Verb: having been named

Strip the original sentence down to the opening modifier and the core subject and verb:

“Having been named for a mythological nymph, the asteroid named Ida was discovered in 1884.”

The construction having been named conveys an action that takes place before the action in the main verb (was discovered). It is illogical, though, to suggest that the asteroid was named before it was discovered. Eliminate answer (A) for a faulty meaning.

(2) Sentence Structure

Answer choice (C) is a sentence fragment; it does not contain a main verb.

"In the middle … Jupiter , the asteroid Ida , discovered in X and named for Y.”

Opening modifier , Subject (Ida) , modifier and modifier.

The subject is Ida but no main verb exists. Both discovered and named are modifiers.

(3) Idiom: to orbit

Answers (A), (B), and (C) say in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit. Answers (D) and (E) say in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit.

The correct idiom is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun.

(4) Parallelism: X and Y

Answer (E) employs a faulty parallel construction:

an asteroid …

discovered in 1884

and

which was named for a mythological nymph


Generally speaking, don’t make a which clause parallel to an –ed modifier. (If you really want to know why: The which modifier is a clause and the –ed modifier is a phrase. Clauses and phrases are not parallel.)

The Correct Answer

Correct answer (B) logically conveys that the asteroid was first discovered and then named. It uses the proper idiom in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sunn=.

The first thought in such sandwiched sentences is to decide the chronology of the events. The discovery is the first event and hence has to be described first with a modifier status. Then is the naming phenomenon, so push this incidental info to the next in another modifier. The third most important point is what it is doing and where it is doing at the moment. Give this most important factor a verb status.

You will see B fulfilling all the criteria.

In A the discovery has been pushed to the last; it might erroneously mean that discovery was made after all the other things were done or even because other things were done

C is a blatant fragment

The infinitive ‘to orbit’ in D and E is unidiomatic

Word order questions are above par questions.

Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.

A. Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884 - Present participle does not seem good. Moreover, mentioning 'Named' two time is redundant.
B. Discovered in 1884, the asteroid lda, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter - Correct.
C. In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid lda, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter - No verb for 'Asteroid lda'. Incomplete sentence.
D. The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter - Using 'To' before 'orbit' shows that asteroids purposefully orbit the sun, which is not the case. Moreover, In sentence - ''named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884'' - It is not clear whether 'discovered' is parallel to ' cared' or 'named'.
E. Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter - In this option, Past participle is made parallel with Verb. Using 'To' before 'orbit' shows that asteroids purposefully orbit the sun, which is not the case.

Kudos please...... :wink:

Meaning analysis:
1. Asteroid Ida is in the middle of belt of asteroids that orbit the sun between mars and Jupiter.
2. Asteroid Ida was discovered in 1884
3. It is named for a for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter

Error :
1. Having been – “is not correct, it happened in past.” Named is better option.
2. Modifier issue “Having been “ should modify specific noun Ida (Ida was named, not asteroid was named) , I am not sure if this is correct, but if better construction is found then it should be given preference.

POE.
A. Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.

B. Discovered in 1884, the asteroid lda, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
Correct
Discovered in 1884 (Ved modifier modifying asteroid),
the asteroid lda,
named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter (modifier modifying Ida),
is (verb for singular subject Ida) in the middle of the belt of asteroids
that orbit (plural verb for plural subject asteroids) the Sun between Mars and Jupiter



C. In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid lda, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter.
There is no verb at all
If we remove the fluff – sentence will be “the asteroid discovered and named”
discovered and named are not Verb but Ved modifier.
Incorrect – No Verb error

D. The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
Everything is correct till “belt of asteroids”, we need to describe the belt of asteroids,
Meaning error “Ida is in the middle of belt to orbit the sun between mars and Jupiter” this is not intended meaning
Incorrect – meaning error


E. Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Meaning error “Ida is in the middle of belt to orbit the sun between mars and Jupiter” this is not intended meaning
Parallelism error – Ida “ an asteroid discovered in 1884” (noun phrase) cannot be made parallel “Which was named .. “ relative clause modifier.
Incorrect – Meaning , Parallelism

The trick of the trade in dealing with such multiple modifiers is to stick to the main objective; you might do well to fix the main subject and its core activity and ignore all the modifiers for the time being.
Here 'Ida' is the subject and its core activity is that it is in the midst of more such asteroids that also orbit the sun. The core activity should be given a verb status. In addition, to orbit will be out of sync as pointed out by others as there is no intention or purpose involved.


A. Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884. --- The core activity that Ida is in the midst of other asteroids is just expressed a in prepositional modifier without the verb ‘is’

B. Discovered in 1884, the asteroid lda, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. --- Correct expression of core activity; best fit

C. In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid lda, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter. Job made easy; this is a fragment

D. The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. ‘to orbit’ is the culprit
E. Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. --- ‘to orbit’ is the culprit

Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.
A. Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.
B. Discovered in 1884, the asteroid lda, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
C. In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid lda, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter.
D. The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
E. Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.



First Glance: "Having..." is a modifier that must modify the subject immediately. The modifier's intent is to express who Ida was named after, but the modifier is modifying "the asteroid named Ida", which creates an awkward and incorrect combination.
Eliminate A
Scanning B-E: Eliminate C for the missing verb error. Eliminate D and E for is...to orbit (the infinitive form is used to show intent/purpose and this is incorrect in the sentence's context).
B is correct: S-V make grammatical and logical sense. Modifiers appropriately modify "the asteroid Ida".

Quick 'IN' & 'OUT' strategy:

Meaning - The sentence gives information about "Asteroid Ida" - discovery, naming of the asteroid, and its orbit.

A. "Having Construction" - Wrong modifier . Typically "having constructions" are wrong in Sc.

B. Looks fine

C. No verb - Incomplete sentence

D. Logically not parallel (It needs to be first discovered and then named)

Another error is the "To orbit" construction - illogical

E. Typically "Which" in GMAT Sc is always preceded by , or preposition. (Another error is the "To orbit" construction - illogical)

This option is having neither.

Correct Answer "B"

Damn....took 3 min!!! this has to be a 700 level and not 600 ?
Was struggling to decide between A and B.
A)Grammatically correct but is convoluted
B)Easier to read and makes sense. Correct answer
C) Fragment
D) Use of infinitive changes the meaning...(is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars)
E) Use of infinitive changes the meaning..(is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars)

(A) Having been named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, the asteroid named Ida, in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 1884.

Having Been creates a timeline in the past which referes that Action A happens before Action B in the past.

Here it means -

Naming the mythological Nymph------------Discovery of the asteroid named IDA.

(B) Discovered in 1884, the asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Correct.!!

(C) In the middle of the belt of asteroids that orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter, the asteroid Ida, discovered in 1884 and named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter.

Seems like a jumbled sentence - Wordy and Awkward.

(D) The asteroid Ida, named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter and discovered in 1884, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Incorrect. ( highhlighted portions)

(E) Ida, an asteroid discovered in 1884 and which was named for a mythological nymph who cared for the infant Jupiter, is in the middle of the belt of asteroids to orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter

Incorrect ( highhlighted portions)

Hence IMHO (B)

this question tell us that gmat can use simple grammar rules to bring us a very hard questions. all of us have enough grammar to do this question but most of us fail. the reason is that we do not focus on meaning analysis.

but we admit that for some questions , we need to know grammar rules , some time rarely used rules, to solve. for example, the question "golden crap, because of" require the knowledge of gerund to solve.

so, learn some grammar rules more but focus on meaing analysis

My analysis:

A- having been is incorrect.
B- correct in all respect.
c- has no main verb.
d- to orbit is incorrect.
e- which was and to orbit are wrong.

I hope this makes sense.

Dear schelljo,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

The short answer is: YES. Any phrase inside a pair of commas, set off from the grammatical flow of the rest of the sentence, is known rhetorically as an aside. It's a way to add extra information to the sentence that is not essential to the overall grammatical flow of the sentence. Yes, this could be a prepositional phrase or series of prepositional phrases, or any other noun-modify or verb-modifying phrase or clause.

Does this make sense?
Mike :-)

Hi,
here's what the official solution says about answer A
"A. Opening with a past perfect passive verb, Having been named, this version of the sentence illogically suggests that being named for a mythological nymph preceded the discovery of Ilda"

Why Having been named is "past perfect passive"? The past perfect is formed by
subject + had + past participle
So the passive would be
Subject + had + been + past participle

In this case the past perfect passive would be "Had been named" and not "Having been named"

Can someone please explain?

Thanks

Hi utkarshthapak ,

This question tests the concept of meaning. In my opinion, the current level of the question is appropriate.

I hardly took 45 seconds to solve this question. May be you were lacking somewhere.
