Re: Practice Test 1 Q. 38 GMAT ULTIMATE GRAMMAR GMAT CLUB [#permalink]

explanation is as below...

BOSS is angry ?

so that somebody would explain by WITH HIMSELF...so this is correct...so the answers are split by BE and ACD...so we cancel ACD options...

seeing B it ends with AN HOUR but E with A HOUR...normally AN HOUR is correct hence we select the option B...

guys please correct me if i am wrong with my explanation

Answer in B in my opinion. The only option that stays true the meaning of the sentence.

What kind of question is this? GMAT doesn't test on spelling mistakes. Please post some good source questions.
Answer choice D is an insult to hardcore GMATTers

b) with

himself

because it took over an hour

d) with

hisself

because it took over an hour

In option B and Option D the only difference is spelling , or synonym of himself,...

definatly not going to be on the test.

Option B is correct though.
