a.
b: experiencing when puppies
c: that each experienced as a puppy
D: that they experienced as puppies
E: that had experienced when puppies

how do we determine between C and D?


"That each experienced as a puppy" would seem to be referencing two specific puppies that had individual experiences. "That they experienced as puppies" is more general and refers to the entire groups and their experiences.

notice the 2:3 split for "as" and "when". If you read it out loud "when puppies(y)" sounds incomplete - like saying "when you" - people expect the finish and there isnt! So now c and d basically tests if you think it should be singular or plural - with the "and" there it is combining both types of terriers thus it should be plural. so D

+1 D

a. - It's ackward. It seems that the scents were puppies and experienced something.
b: experiencing when puppies - The same error.
c: that each experienced as a puppy - Incorrect: This part of the sentence is using singular nouns, but the rest is using plural nouns.
D: that they experienced as puppies - CORRECT.
E: that had experienced when puppies - Incorrect: There is not another past event to use past perfect.

I think I deserve kudos 8-)

Though D is the answer C looks Ok.
Why is C wrong?
When can such a answer (C) be used?

Levenstein asserts that even years later Yorkshire Terriers and Jack Russell Terriers will recognize scents experiencing when a puppy.
a.
b: experiencing when puppies
c: that each experienced as a puppy
D: that they experienced as puppies
E: that had experienced when puppies

Choice C is not correct here because “Yorkshire Terriers” and “Jack Russell Terriers” have been written as compound noun. Hence, the pronoun referring them should also be plural.
For example: Mary and Amy went shopping and they had a great time.
We do not say: Mary and Amy went shopping and each had a great time.

Also notice that “Yorkshire Terriers” and “Jack Russell Terriers” are plural entities. Using singular “each” for these entities separately and then saying “as a puppy” is not appropriate. Hence, Choice C is not the correct answer.

Choice C would go well if the sentence were: Levenstein asserts that even years later a Yorkshire Terrier and a Jack Russell Terrier will recognize scents that each experienced as a puppy.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

a.
b: experiencing when puppies
c: that each experienced as a puppy
D: that they experienced as puppies
E: that had experienced when puppies

how do we determine between C and D?

i WILL go for D as the use of each change the meaning of the original sentence


hope this well

@e-gmat,

What if the option was like "that they had experienced when puppies"?
