Hi Mike,

The idiom "Declared A B" is equivalent to "Consider A B", isn't it? Are there any other words that run along the same lines?

Dear pretzel,
I'm happy to respond. :-) In terms of common words, likely to appear on the GMAT, there are no other words in this pattern. BTW, here are some free GMAT Idiom Flashcards:

A) The Supreme Court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia as unconstitutional, and --- and ruling is not parallel to declared

B) the Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia, and—same as in A

C) the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia, ---- a simple sentence, with the Supreme court as the subject , declared as the main verb and ruling as the present participial modifier correct choices

D) a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court-------- Not withstanding that the clause is in passive voice, the present participial modifier – ruling -- modifies the clause starting with ---a minimum wage -- as if it is the minimum wage that invoked the ruling.

E) when the Supreme Court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia as unconstitutional,--- The main clasue is missing


In terms of meaning, shouldn't it be DECLARE X Y
It conveys a meaning that supreme court created some sort of wages that are unconstitutional. Supreme court created wage..
I think it should be "Supreme court declared minimum wage for women and children unconstitutional in the Distinct of Columbia"

I need your help Daagh...

The Supreme Court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia as unconstitutional, and[/u] ruling that it was a form of price-fixing and, as such, an abridgment of the right of contract.

(A) the Supreme Court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia as unconstitutional, and

- incorrect idiom, the correct idiom should be "the court declared unconstitutional x..."
- use of and is incorrect as we are not joining two independent clauses


(B) the Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia, and

- incorrect idiom, the correct idiom should be "the court declared unconstitutional x..."
- use of and is incorrect as we are not joining two independent clauses


(C) the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia,

- CORRECT
- Active or Direct Sentence
- and has been removed a


(D) a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court,

- Passive voice

(E) when the Supreme Court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the District of Columbia as unconstitutional,

- usage of when is incorrect here, it makes the sentence as fragment

Hence, Answer is C

Did you like the answer? Kudos :good

First, the conjuntion ',and' is used when we have two independent clauses. Hence eliminate A & B

Answer choice E incorrectly uses 'when' denoting that something else happened after the ruling. However, nothing else happened. Eliminate E

Answer choice D modifies the author's intent by using 'a minimum wage for women and children...'. Does this mean other minimum wages still remained? No, hence, eliminate D

Video Explanations:


We don't need 'and' as there aren't 2 separate clauses in the sentence, and there isn't any parallelism either.
A & B are out.
D - The adverbial phrase starting with 'ruling that....' is modifying the action taken by 'the Supreme Court' and not by 'a minimum wage' so this option is wrong. OUT.
E - Same as D. The adverbial phrase makes no sense with 'when the supreme court....'. OUT.

C is the right answer.

@e-gmat, mikemcgarry, and GMATNinja

If the original sentence was:
In 1923, the supreme court declared a minimum wage for women and children in the district of Columbia as unconstitutional, and ruled that it was a form of price fixing and, as such, an abridgement of the right of contract.


Will it be correct?


Also mikemcgarry in one of your above posts, you mentioned that the correct idiom is Declare X Y, do X and Y have to be parallel?


Thanks

"C" is the correct choice - Correct idiom is used, and the modifier is grammatically and logically attached to the main clause.
