Indian food comprises many f, modifier, from the fiery x to the Portuguese-influenced y, to the more familiar z

A and B don't modify the "styles of cooking" properly. "styles of cooking" is a product of regional influences.
each a product --> correct
each products ---> wrong

A. with each a product of their >> modifier issue
B. with each as a product of its >> modifier issue
C. each products of their >> each is singular.

A. with each a product of their - Thier - India is singular ----->
Of course "their" cannot refer to India. However 'styles' is plural.

If "their" refers to styles then -
styles' regional influences is nonsensical. Since "styles of cooking" is a product of regional influences.

My reasoning goes exactly the same as yours .. so D for me too ..

I differ from you on one thing ... highlighted in bold above ... I feel "Indian food" is a product of regional influences and not "styles of cooking" ... so A and B don't have to modify "styles of cooking" .. they have to modify "Indian food", which there are not doing .. hence both of 'em are wrong ..
correct me if I am wrong ..

Each, like every, is always used with a singular noun form and therefore with a singular verb form.
For example:
Each product has different function.

For this question, only D is correct.

A. with each a product of their
Wrong. "their" is incorrect.

B. with each as a product of its
Wrong. "Its" does not refer to anything.

C. each products of their
Wrong. "Products" is incorrect.

D. each a product of >>> CORRECT.

E. each products of
Wrong. "Products" is incorrect.

I am a non-native English speaker and I have trouble understanding that why "each" is modifying "styles of cooking" but not "cooking" itself?

It's similar to: There are 30 students in the class, each uniquely talented.

Here, "each" would modify "students", not "class", because from the meaning of the sentence, it is not saying that "each class" is uniquely talented.

Similarly, from the meaning of this sentence, each style is a product of regional influences.

Hi Expert,


I choose the correct answer but I'm not sure whether my reason is valid.


A. "With" is incorrect & their is incorrect because it refers to India.
B. "With" is incorrect
C. "their" is incorrect because it refers to India.
D. Correct
E. products (it need to be product to correspond with each)


Please provide explanation on this question.

Thank you.

Can experts please help me understand why the use of "with" is wrong in options A and B.

One thing I know is, "with + comma" modifies the previous clause.
As per my understanding, modifying a clause is same as --> proper reference to verb and the subject of previous clause.

However, I am facing difficulty in relating the above logic to this question.
Your help will be really appreciated.

"With" isn't really necessary in A and B. Since we are talking about nouns (cooking styles), it doesn't really make sense to try to modify the verb or clause. However, both A and B are wrong for other reasons. In A, "their" (plural) does not agree with "each" (singular). In B, it's not clear what the "as" means. There's no comparison or role to indicate. Each style is a product of its regional influences.

1) Yes, that works well.

2 and 3) These are independent clauses, so we'd need a semicolon first. (Outside of SC, we might also start a new sentence here.)

4) I don't see any reason to forbid this, but it feels less clear, perhaps because "all products" could serve as the subject of a new clause if the meaning were different. (E.g. "All products of regional influences are also connected by larger national influences.") This makes it a bit more confusing to read.

Can anyone explain this?

Clause 1: Indian food comprises many different styles of cooking,


Clause 2: each a product of regional influences, from the fiery vegetarian dishes of the south to the Portuguese-influenced Goan cooking of the west, to the more familiar Mogul food of the north.

there is no connector between clauses in the sentence..... doesn't it look like a run-on sentence.

Hi Rupesh, this is not a clause, since there is no verb. Hence, the sentence is not a run-on sentence.

Dear DmitryFarber,

This question was a cakewalk for me as I got D in seconds, having studied the Modifier Chapter in MGMAT SC Book.

But still I've few doubts-

a) In B, 'its' can refer logically to 'INDIA' only IMO, but is it because the two ICs are joined by 'colon' instead of 'semi-colon' ??

b) Also I've almost every-time seen using 'with....' as an 'adverbial modifier' so in correct option D 'each...' indeed modifies 'many styles of cooking'. Using 'with....' in A & B makes the 'with .....' modifier modify the 'entire clause' or the verb 'comprises', which doesn't make sense. [btw sorry for incorrect usage of which :shh: ] So, is my reasoning right here??

c) Like you said 'As' in B is not clear, in that what is it used for - 1) No comparison, 2) No explanation(because/since), 3) No parallel-timing(while), & 4) Not as- In the capacity of(in the role of)
I double you with this point!!
