Hi,

the Q is testing on LIKE..


1)like PLayers should be closest to what it modifies, In this case --team managers
2) LIKE can compare NOUNS and not actions ... so Apart from C all are out for WRONG usage of LIKE
ans C

Only C uses like to compare nouns while all the rest indulge in using like to compare clauses.

a. team managers are rewarded for every game they win, like players are

b. team managers are rewarded, like players are, for every game they win

c. team managers, like players, are rewarded for every game that they win

d. like team managers are rewarded for every game they win, players are

e. like team managers are, players are rewarded for every game they win

"Like should modify a noun or a noun phrase" therefore A,B,D, and E are out.

(E) stands.

Can anyone please explain why A and B are incorrect. They both convey the same meaning.

Meaning is important on the GMAT, but it's irrelevant if the answer choices are grammatically incorrect. As explained by other posters in the thread, "like" can only be used to compare two nouns. For example:

"My cat, like my dog, plays fetch" is correct — "like" compares "cat" and "dog", two nouns
"My cat plays fetch, like my dog does" is incorrect — "like" compares "plays fetch" and "does", two verbs
(Note: "My cat plays fetch, as my dog does" is correct, because "as" is used to compare two verbs)

All answer choices except C use "like" to compare "are rewarded" and "are", two verbs. This is grammatically incorrect, no matter how you slice it. C, on the other hand, uses "like" to compare "team managers" and "players", two nouns. So the answer must be C based on grammar alone. Meaning never comes into play.
