Japanese researchers are producing a series of robots that can identify human facial expressions, to which they will then respond; their goal is primarily creating a robot that will empathize with us.

(A) expressions, to which they will then respond; their goal is primarily creating -- Pronoun -- they can refer Japenese researchers or robots , but logically robots makes sense ; their should refer to Japenese researchers
(B) expressions, then responding to them; primarily to create -- parallelism issue -- responding is not parallel to identify ; Not a complete sentence after semi-colon
(C) expressions and then respond to them; the researchers' primary goal is to create -- Correct
(D) expressions as well as giving a response to them; their primary goal is creation of-- parallelism issue - giving is not parallel identify ; their is ambiguous
(E) expressions and responding to them; primarily, the researchers' goal is creating-- parallelism issue -- responding is not parallel to identify

Answer C

could any one help me here?
Japanese researchers are producing sth and their goal is to create?
is it ok or what?

I go with c here because other choices make no sense to me but what about the question I just asked?



The verb "are producing" and the infintive "to create" are not parts of the same parallel structure. In fact they are in two different sentences altogether (joined by a semicolon). It is not an issue that one is a verb and the other is an infinitive since they have no grammatical bearing with each other.

In order to identify parallel elements, it is a good practice to first identify the parallelism marker (such as AND, BETTER THAN, NOT ONLY, BUT ALSO etc.). Once the marker is identified, only then one should try to find the parallel elements.




HELLO SIR
if in option C,AND is replaced by AS WELL AS,will the option be correct?

Hello JAIN09,

I am not sure if your doubt still persists. Here is the explanation nonetheless. :-)

IMHO, and can be replaced with as well as in Choice C. However, in doing so, the word then will have to be removed.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

Responding is not parallal to identify.
