A. Maybe every travel guide that contains references to Italy recommends that tourists, especially those in search of a romantic atmosphere, visit the"floating", uniquely beautiful-"maybe" in this context is wrong usage.Perhaps sounds way better-out

B. Every travel guide containing references to Italy recommends that tourists, especially those in search of a romantic atmosphere, visit the"floating", uniquely beautiful-It removes the element of uncertainty brought by Maybe/perhaps-out

C. Perhaps every travel guide containing references to Italy recommends that tourists, especially those in search of a romantic atmosphere, visit the uniquely beautiful, "floating"-Looks good, proper subjunctive, proper order of adjectives,proper verb-ing modifying the "travel guide".

D. Perhaps every travel guide that contains references to Italy recommends that tourists, especially those in search of a romantic atmosphere, visit the "floating" city, uniquely beautiful-the order of adjectives is improper,making it X city, Y city-out

E. Perhaps every travel guide that contains references to Italy recommends that tourists, especially those in search of a romantic atmosphere, will visit the "floating", uniquely beautiful-will visit changes the meaning-out

Is the usage of coma after beautiful in option 'C' correct?

Moreover, what is wrong in choice D? Doesn't 'uniquely beautiful' modify the 'Floating city'?

Hi Mahmud6 ,

I am happy to help you my friend. :)

Option D is a blunder here. It is trying to convey that travelers visit the "floating city" (followed by a modifier for this city). This illogically means there is a city named floating city and this city is very beautiful. This is not the real meaning of the sentence.

Option C : It correctly conveys the idea that there is a uniquely beautiful floating city of Venice. This means there is a single city that has two adjectives. 1)beautiful 2)floating.

I agree with your comma point but that could be to differentiate the two adjectives. Since only option that conveys the real meaning is C, I will select C as the answer (I took 2:15 to solve this question. )

so, this question is a gmat-like question?

Probably not - the only reasoning that option C is better than option A is that option C uses the formal "perhaps" rather than the colloquial "maybe" is option A. In my opinion, it is not expected that in GMAT, one would have to eliminate an answer only on this basis.
