Kudos, tough questions. Question 13 I don't get 'giving rise' seems illogical

I think 12 c has a poopy explanation...i dont think theres anything wrong with saying the earth formed the moon..I get that the Earth isn't a living thing to form sth...but imo it's not a wrong thing to say..if so, then why is it right to say the moon was formed by the earth? Huh?
I think the real reason is that "perhaps" seems to be awkwardly misplaced (0_o)..
Any thoughts, you guys?

Also Souvik ty ty ty for this post and many others :oops: learning a lot :)

Hi! Souvik

Great collection, just one doubt in ques 7 we have a list of two things joined with a comma (more resources on smaller, more carefully selected members) shouldn't these two be joined by and, or i am missing something?

Thanks!

Let me know if there are some mistakes!



Hi souvik101990

QUESTION 9
although option C is preferable, option A confused me. I remember we can modify the second noun alone same as structure like original sentence

The pioneering research of Lewis Latimer and Thomas Edison, who became known for his invention of the light bulb, accelerated the development of the first power plant, which opened in New York City in 1882.


am I wrong?

Hii Souvik.
In #4, c)
Since "of earth's earliest days" is a prepositional phrase, don't you feel that "which" is modifying the "underground remnant"?
In the OE, its given that "which" is modifying "earth's earliest days". How can it be?
The box of nails, which is kept on the table, is black in colour.
Here which is modifying "box" not "nails".

Well, two things. I ll address them but let me copy paste the entire question first.

Geologists once thought that the molten rock known as lava was an underground remnant of
Earth's earliest days, sporadically erupting through volcanoes, but they now know that it is
continuously created by the heat of the radioactivity deep inside the planet.

• was an underground remnant of Earth's earliest days, sporadically erupting
• had been an underground remnant of Earth's earliest days and sporadically erupted
• was an underground remnant of Earth's earliest days, which sporadically erupted
• would be an underground remnant of Earth's earliest days that sporadically erupted
• was an underground remnant of Earth's earliest days, having sporadically erupted

  • If you consider simple past, it has a slight meaning distortion. Its very difficult to write it out but if you get the solution of This official question then you will be able to realize it. Its similar to the following exmaples
    I won the all you can eat competition, devoured no less than fifty kebabs and ten mighty tandooris. WRONG
    I won the all you can eat competition, devouring no less than fifty kebabs and ten mighty tandooris. RIGHT
    The second one is correct because the simple past wrongly means that there are no connections between the stuffs before and after comma.
  • I get the touch rule is often violated. But it is for VERY small phrases like to X, of Y, from Z etc. If you look closely which is modifying remnant, though it should modify "lava" or rather the entire preceding clause which is nicely done by the ING


Hi souvik101990,
the explanation about eat competition is clear, however I do not see how it is applicable here.
"Molten rock known as lava was underground remnant"; it means that molten rock=lava=remnant. In answer choice C which modifies remnant. which in turn modifies molten rock, making C grammatically correct.
What am I missing or confusing?

Hi Folks,
could you explain why in 5th question answer choice C is incorrect? Isn't Chesapeake Bay already imply area, making answer choice A (Chesapeake Bay area) wordy?

5. Disease, pollution, and overfishing have devastated the bountiful oyster harvests that once
sustained the residents of the Chesapeake Bay area.

• of the Chesapeake Bay area
• in and around the Chesapeake Bay
• of the Chesapeake Bay
• around the vicinity of the Chesapeake Bay
• living in and around the Chesapeake Bay area

No, The Bay means the bay itself and NOT the area around it as a whole.

When we talk about an economic ecosystem, we are referring to it at large.

Think about this analogy: during the 80's years a new music movement arose in Frisco, it was called (and still is identified) as the Bay Area Trash metal, which means ALL the metal bands and ALL the economic system (concerts, releases, demo-tapes, labels, recordings) related to them at large.

I do think this question is great.

Regards

thank you for the explanation.
for some reason in my perception the Name+bay implied a certain area, rather than purely geographical name of bay.
