A. frequently created or adapted on a regular basis since new cases of cruelty to animals are constantly being discovered
"frequently".."on a regular basis" redundant.

B. created or adapted on a regular basis since new cases of cruelty to animals is constantly being discovered
"new cases".."is" Incorrect Subject Verb pair

C. created and adapted on a regular basis since new cases of animal cruelty are being discovered constantly
Between "on a regular basis" (choice C) and "regularly" (choice E) , we should choose "regularly". Refer to MGMAT, Chapter 11, GM/S-V/Parallelism - Extra, VAN Pattern 5: Prefer an Adverb (regularly) to a prepositional phrase (on a regular basis).

D. frequently created or adapted since new cases of cruelty to animals are being discovered all the time
"all the time" changes meaning from "constantly"

E. created or adapted regularly since new cases of animal cruelty are constantly being discovered
Between "on a regular basis" (choice C) and "regularly" (choice E) , we should choose "regularly". Refer to MGMAT, Chapter 11, GM/S-V/Parallelism - Extra, VAN Pattern 5: Prefer an Adverb (regularly) to a prepositional phrase (on a regular basis).

I am confused between "animal cruelty" (in option E) and "cruelty to animals" (In D) . I am more inclined towards the later because the former leaves ambiguity as to whether it is cruelty by animal or cruelty towards animal.

A. frequently created or adapted on a regular basis since new cases of cruelty to animals are constantly being discovered

B. created or adapted on a regular basis since new cases of cruelty to animals is constantly being discovered

C. created and adapted on a regular basis since new cases of animal cruelty are being discovered constantly

D. frequently created or adapted since new cases of cruelty to animals are being discovered all the time

E. created or adapted regularly since new cases of animal cruelty are constantly being discovered


A - 'Frequent', 'Regular' mean the same thing. OUT on redundancy.
B - Subject Verb Disagreement. 'Cases' is plural and 'is' is singular. OUT.
C - 'Frequently/Regularly' is more succinct as compared to 'on a regular basis' + 'and' changes the meaning
D - 'Constantly' is more succinct as compared to 'all the time'
E - Better than C and D, and hence, is the correct answer.

Experts,
Shouldn't this be one of the criteria while deciding on the correct answer?

E and not C because "regularly" is a better suited adverb than "on a regular basis" and "constantly being discovered" is the correct structure with adverb "constantly" modifying the adjective "being discovered".

Experts,
Shouldn't this be one of the criteria while deciding on the correct answer?


Regularly” and “on a regular basis” have the same meaning. In any case, “on a regular basis” has only one meaning, while regularly could also mean in a regular manner.

Frequently” may be redundant, but it is not necessarily wrong, nor does it have the exact meaning as “on a regular basis”. The expression could also be part of a parallel construction:
frequently created or adapted on a regular basis.”

I also agree with FarhanSabkaBhai and saurabhSuman. The expression “animal cruelty” is ambiguous because it is not clear whether it refers to the “cruelty to animals” or the “cruelty of animals.”

Therefore, I would stick with answer A, even though it is not the official answer.
