Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.


I have read the above responses. I am still not convinced E is the answer. How "in long overdue" clears the meaning ?

American soldiers were awarded X .... in long overdue recognition of their outstanding bravery.

Can somebody please explain???

@egmat - can you please explain.


As explained above, the correct structure is

in recognition of....

Long-overdue just act as an adjective modifying 'recognition'. So,

in long-overdue recognition of .....

It is a very good question. But please underline the part - really helps.
'In Recognition' - so within A,C,E. Both in A & C it is stated 'Congressional Medal of Honor, which was' - this past tense doesn't look correct. So by POE answer is E.

More than fifty years after the Second World War, a number of African American soldiers were awarded―some of them posthumously―with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

"Awarded with X" is not correct idiom "awarded X" is correct
"in recognition" is correct idiom, "for recognition" is wrong

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in
-Wordiness:"Which was" is not wrong but it is unnecessary. "the nation's highest military award" is an appositive and does not require "which was".
-misplaced modifier: another problem in this sentence is "long-overdue". in this sentence we have: "the Congressional Medal of Honor was long overdue"
while "long-overdue" must modify recognition. the African American recognition was long overdue. so, we have misplaced modifier.
- unidiomatic usage: as mentioned above
B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in
Sentence fragment

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long-overdue

Congressional Medal of Honor is the nation's highest military award. So eliminate A,C for that.
the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue means the award is for long overdue recognition whi9ch is wrong. For these soldiers this award was long overdue.

So E is correct


seekmba and geturdream

Could you please help me understand what has been mentioned in the question on the basis of which we are saying that the medal still exist and we should not use "was" in A and C ? I may look quite novice but I am thinking what if the question is talking about something happened last year. I mean something as below -

More than fifty years after the Second World War, in 2014, a number of African American soldiers were awarded--some of them posthumously--the Congressional Medal of Honor, which until last year was the nation’s highest military award, long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

Please advise.

Its not "in long-overdue" that we are looking at, it is "in..recognition", you award something in recognition of something not "for recognition'. Now you can say "for recognizing something" e.g.: A is useful for recognizing B. But when we speak of awards its in recognition of his long service etc.

alokkumargupta
The congressional medal of honor is still the highest military award. The sentence "which until last year was the nation’s highest military award" makes it look like , it was the highest award till last year, but no longer is.

Hope that helps.

jitendra31 - You're right. I don't think previous explanations are correct.

Bang on - Medal of honor was not long-overdue. It was the recognition that was overdue.

Kudos


jitendra31 wrote:
i don't think A and C are incorrect because of 'was'. GMAT does not expect participants to possess prior knowledge of anything asked in the exam.

I believe C is incorrect due to inaccurate usage of 'long overdue'. It incorrectly modifies the medal and that makes it usage illogical.

Hi chetan2u / Experts,

IMO-D, but the OA is E :(
one question to ask..

Why awarded in recognition is proffered over awarded for recognition.

Please assist.


Hi,
the Q is
Quote:
More than fifty years after the Second World War, a number of African American soldiers were awarded―some of them posthumously―with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in

B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for longoverdue

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in longoverdue


you have choosen D over E, but D is wrong for two reasons..

1) " in recognition of" is the correct idiom meaning " in acknowledgment of"..
2) Apart of this the glaring mistake in D, if its correctly reproduced here is..
the nation’s highest military award for longoverdue..
without the comma in between 'award' and 'for', it has changed the meaning, illogicaly meaning that the Congressional Medal of Honor is the nation’s highest military award for longoverdue recognitions

a number of African American soldiers were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor....

Or

a number of African American soldiers were awarded with the Congressional Medal of Honor

Though awarded with is correct idiomatic usage it is wordy , so lets check if there are some less wordier options available conveying the intended meaning.


C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in

Changes the tense to past tense.

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue

Seems to convey the meaning that the award was for in recognition of long overdue.

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long overdue

Let's check the sentence -

a number of African American soldiers were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor......... in long overdue recognition of their outstanding bravery.

Hence (E) is correct..

Most of the people who are picking up the wrong answer is not because they are basing their answer on "awarded" but because they are failing to see another subtle and important word in the sentence -"recognition" -because it falls outside the underlined part.
The correct usage is "IN RECOGNITION OF" (widely used and accepted)
The correct usage is "IN RECOGNITION FOR" (also used in many instances)
The incorrect usage is "FOR RECOGNISITION" (blatantly unidiomatic and a big grammatical blunder)


Also there is no difference in "awarded with" or "awarded". Both are correct. So one cannot eliminate an option because it has "awarded" instead of "awarded with. "
This makes honing into the right answer a matter of seconds.

OPTION B and D are outright incorrect. (Incorrect usage ;- for recognition)
OPTION A :- which was the nations highest military award is wrong. The award is still the highest award. Option A is also needlessly wordy
OPTION C:-which was the nations highest military award is wrong. The award is still the highest award.

OPTION E IS THE CORRECT ANSWER. "IN RECOGNITION OF" and "AWARDED" are used correctly. Useless words like "which was, which is" are removed and the sentence is crisp, clear and concise.

Original Error: Which doesnt refer correctly to awarded, it is referring to military award.
A. wrong because of above error.
B. military award for long overdue now modifies congressional medal of honor, hence changes meaning.
C. I though it to be right, but somehow i missed it :(.
Soilder were awarded long overdue in recognition or Soilders were awarded in long overdue recognition.
Hence C is wrong

In longoverdue forms proper sub ordinate clause .... Hence C is wrong...

Just trying to convince myself y c is wrong :(

D. same as B
E. Right ans.

Was/is is not a reliable issue. It requires outside knowledge that this award is still highest award. Maybe the award is not the highest now. Some other award might be highest now.

In this question 'is' is right as GMAT takes national awards, army very seriously and will never goof up tense when they are refererred.

Butin general...is/was both could be correct without outside information.

Correct idiom: award somebody something, so A&B out.

Correct idiom: in recognition of, so D out.

In (C), "long-overdue" is awkward, so (C) is out.

E is correct.

E

Correct Idiom: Awarded X in recognition of Y

Note

- "...the nation’s highest military award.." is a modifier, hence sentence will stand even without it.
- "...in long overdue recognition...", here long overdue is an essential modifier modifying recognition

Side note
- in recognition for is also correct idiom
- Awarded with X is also correct, however Awarded X is preferred

More than fifty years after the Second World War, a number of African American soldiers were awarded―some of them posthumously―with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

First round of elimination

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in

B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long overdue in

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long overdue

If we remove the between fluff modifier " some of them posthumously " and join two clauses, awarded should modify the noun which should come right next to it. " The congressionl medal of honor"


Elimination round 2

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in

B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long-overdue in

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long-overdue

Again the modifier should come right next to it. The congressional medal of honor... (what is it ) highest military award. So cancel C

Elimination round 3

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long overdue

Comma - E has a comma . Remove the fluff modifier and join it, you will get a whole sentence.

BOOKMARKED
More than fifty years after the Second World War, a number of African American
soldiers were awarded―some of them posthumously―with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in
In this i would prefer to remove "which was the highest military award" as the award could still be the highest.
as for "awarded with" & only "awarded" I think both are idiomatically correct. So to eliminate an answer choice because of that would be wrong. If it had been "rewarded" then "rewarded with would only have been correct"


B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long-overdue
here for long overdue changes the meaning and "for recognition of" is idiomatically incorrect

C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military
award, long-overdue in
again the same error as in option A

D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue
same as option B

E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long overdue
corrects all the errors and introduces none

I used following to solve
More than fifty years after the Second World War, a number of African American soldiers were awarded―some of them posthumously―with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in recognition of their outstanding bravery.

A. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, and which was long overdue in
which may point to medal or honor
B. with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue
They were not awarded because recognition was long overdue
C. the Congressional Medal of Honor, which was the nation’s highest military award, long overdue in
which may point to medal or honor
D. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award for long overdue
They were not awarded because recognition was long overdue
E. the Congressional Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military award, in long overdue
Correct

Am I correct in eliminating A and C for incorrect use of "which"?
