Most of the purported health benefits of tea
Hence rule out A and B

fron the rest, I would pick D:

'D' makes sense... but still murky... :cry:

Selene, when you post the OA can you also kindly post the OE. It will be of great help...

"Most of the purported health benefits of tea" is plural. So A and B are out.

Out of the rest, I prefer D for ||ism.

Tip: Almost all indefinite pronouns (Anyone, Everyone, Someone, Whatever, Whoever, Each, Every, Nobody etc) are singular except SANAM ( Some, Any, None, All, Most).

Will go with D.
A – benefits (plural) comes (singular)
B - benefits (plural) comes (singular), ambiguous pronoun “theyâ€

OA is ^ D ^


"Most of the purported healh benefits of tea come from antioxidants-compunds that are also found in beta carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C and that

>> We need "come" as our subject is plural

>> We need "that" to maintain the ||lism

Most of....come....

Choose (D) for the correct balance with "that"

D for parallelism.

A and B are of course out for "comes".

Between C, D and E, C is wrong since the "and" at the end implies that health benefits inhibit the formation etc.

Was a toss up between D and E, I prefer D!

Most is part of SANAM pronoun.
Purported health benefits is plural Hence Most takes plural verb -->come

D uses correct parallel form of that

Hence D

Whole part – Singular (Students Majority)
Part of – Plural (Majority of students)
Applying above logic results – plural verb – eliminate A and B

a) comes from antioxidants-compounds also found in beta carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C that

b) comes from antioxidants-compounds that are also found in beta carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C, and they

c) come from antioxidants-compounds also found in beta carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C, and [missing that – “that” is required to emphasize presence of antioxidants-compounds in the carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C ect]

d) come from antioxidants-compunds that are also found in beta carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C and that

e) come from antioxidants-compunds also found in beta carotene, vitamin E and vitamin C, and they [ Missing that PLUS They has no clear referent]


Answer: D
