B. that are indicative of a child acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as

-Indicative of a child – a circumlocutory expression – Findings that indicate or indicating - is more forthright

C. to indicate that when a child acquires language, thinking, and emotional skills, that it is

-Findings to indicate -is awkward and unidiomatic –

D. indicating that a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is -best among the lot.

E. indicative of a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills as

As in B, -Indicative of a child – a circumlocutory expression – Findings that indicate or indicating - is more forthright

D therefore is the right choice


can you please explain (in option D)
1.Why 'is' is correct in this part - "a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is"? It should be 'are' IMO.... Here the subject is a child's acquisition or simply acquisition and not 'language, thinking and emotional skills'.
2. Why "that" is required after indicating?.... 'indicating that' is a correct idiom.

A. S V error - Findings ---- indicate is required

B. We want show the result of findings, therefore "VERB - ING" modifier is required. Also, indicative of a child is awkward.

C. "when" changes the meaning. Also, "that it is" wrong.

D. Correct

E. Same as B

(A) that indicates a child’s acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as

(B) that are indicative of a child acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as

(C) to indicate that when a child acquires language, thinking, and emotional skills, that it is

(D) indicating that a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is

(E) indicative of a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills as


here we can look at indicative and eliminate .. as it is adjective does not fit propoerly ..
to indicate is wrong here as it chaneges the meaning, here
in option D indiccating verb ing modifier is correcty used to modify Clinton the doer of the action and the parellism in the clause is correct.
