Is it true that the option A defines the meaning of the sentence?  [#permalink]

Hi Everyone!

So, this is something that I have seen around quite a few times- the issue of meaning. I have come across various questions in which, we outrightly reject 1 or 2 or more options because they change the "intended meaning" of the sentence. Furthermore, I have also come across a few posts that say that it isn't really the option A that defines the meaning and flow of the sentence?

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks sweetlyimproved!

No, choice (A) is not special and does not "define" the intended meaning of the sentence, as discussed here and here.

I hope that helps a bit!
