(A) However much parents in Johannson's district may agree that

(B) Despite the fact that parents in Johannson's district may agree that

"fact" and "may agree" doesn't sound correct.

(C) There is general agreement among the parents in Johannson's district that

Contrast is missing from this option. INCORRECT

(D) Although the parents in Johannson's district agree for

the non-underlined portion contains a clause, hence that sentence should end with "that" INCORRECT

(E) Even though the parents in Johannson's district agree

the non-underlined portion contains a clause, hence that sentence should end with "that". Same error as in option D INCORRECT

Hence I chose option A

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The options for this sentence present you with a list of different idioms from which to choose. Start with the end: is agree that, agree for, or agree correct? The first is fine, the second is unidiomatic because for doesn't go with agree, and the third is out because that is necessary in order for the sentence to make sense. That leaves (A), (B), and (C). (A) isn't particularly eloquent, but it's not grammatically flawed. (B) is out because Despite the fact doesn't fit with may agree (it can be a fact that they agree, but if we don't know whether they agree, then there's no fact to discuss). (C) is wordy, passive (more on this later), and it doesn't agree with the rest of the sentence; if you're skeptical, try reading it in. Only (A) survives.

An 800 test taker doesn't worry about correcting the nonunderlined portion of the sentence. Even if it's awkwardly phrased, that's not your problem to solve.

I'm really confuse about this one.

In sentence A: "However much parents ... " the quantifier shouldn't be many?
