Semicolon is used to conjoin two independent clauses. Hence it is mandatory to have an IC( Subject+verb+object). D is the correct choice.

Q1. ﻿In today’s world, not only leaders but managers also need to possess leadership abilities to be able to motivate their direct reports. A recent report evaluating professional progress made by average students discovered that students who excelled in sports while in school display leadership abilities and hence are five times as likely to become managers, consequently earning higher salaries. It is quite likely that excelling in sports while at school imparts these leadership abilities. Which of the following if true, most strengthens the author’s belief above? A. Students who already possessed leadership qualities from a very young age were no more likely to excel in sports in school when compared to ordinary students. B. Students whose parents excelled in sports were no more likely to take up sports while in school than the average student. C. Above average students who excelled in sports in school were also more likely to become managers when compared to a regular above average student. D. Leadership skills that managers need to possess can only be acquired by practice and are otherwise difficult to teach in an academic classroom. E. Most companies report that they prefer hiring students who have excelled in sports. Difficulty - Hard

Q2. A recent archaeological discovery in a remote region has unearthed artifacts that indicate the existence of an ancient civilization.

(A) The qualifications and expertise of the archaeologists involved in the excavation and analysis of the artifacts.

(B) The dating methods and techniques used to determine the age of the artifacts and their accuracy.

Statement - MowGreen would not be able to operate profitably in the Drawnville Area.

Conclusion - MowGreen will not expand its operations in the Drawnville Area.

Assumption therefore has to connect profitability with expansion. Therefore option A is clearly the best choice.

Heart of the passage is - Mowgreen will not expand its operations into Drawville area anytime soon (it may expand later) given that it is expanding quickly and Drawville does not seem profitable to them as of now. Assumption - Profitability is a necessary criterion for Mowgreen’s expansion. Option A.

doesn’t this statement -
"Mowgreen would not be able to operate profitably there"
in passage can help us in assuming that- in the mowgreen operates profitabily in the areas where it currently operates

An assumption must always be TRUE. Hence, negating it must break the conclusion. Even if Mowgreen DOES NOT profitably operate in the areas it currently operates, the statement won’t break the conclusion that ‘Mowgreen will not expand its operations into Drawville area anytime soon’. Whereas negating option A does break.

Re: Verbal Question of the Day Chat Group [#permalink]
The subject is merger here which is singular so all the options with “are intended” will be eliminated and singular ‘is’ should be used imo
