I find option D a bit ambiguous. Does someone state an intention or shows it. However, as in option c, stated that it plans.... sounds correct to me. But still doubtful...

Isn't intention to expand changes the meaning a bit? I marked C only for this reason. Please provide your inputs.

Yes, it does - "a plan to expand" would be better.

However option C is wrong because "plan on" is unidiomatic here.

In their most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand into the global software market via a series of acquisitions in Asia and Latin America.

A) their most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand

B) its most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand

C) its most recent press release, the new management stated that it plans on expanding

D) its most recent press release, the new management stated an intention to expand

E) its most recent press release, the new management stated their intention to expand

I wanted to choose D, but chose C.
Because I thought, that "intention to" is unidiomatic

intend to do
intent on doing
intention of doing

Is not it so?

Plans on Verb-ing is wrong. PLAN TO VERB is right.

As to why it could not be C, the the management itself if not planning to expand to those areas, but the company is planning to expand there. Therefore, when the pronoun it is used in C, the meaning could be ambiguous whether the management plans to go there or the company. D has clearer intention that the company is going there. My two cents on it but could be wrong.

'Stated that' is subjunctive mood. So, C would be correct if it were 'the new management stated that it plan on expanding'.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

choice D appears as if the new management stated something to achieve something

In their most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand into the global software market via a series of acquisitions in Asia and Latin America.


A) their most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand

B) its most recent press release, the new management stated that they plan to expand

C) its most recent press release, the new management stated that it plans on expanding

D) its most recent press release, the new management stated an intention to expand

E) its most recent press release, the new management stated their intention to expand

This question is part of the GMAT Club Sentence Correction : Pronoun Revision Project.


The answer is D. Management is a collective noun so gets a singular pronoun "it", leaving us with C and D. Since plan on is idiomatically incorrect (correct one being plan to), we are left with only choice D.

Plan on is idiomatically incorrect, that's why :)
