21. Of all the wild animals in their area, none was more
useful to the Delaware tribes than the Virginia white-
tailed deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide was
used for clothing, its antlers and bones for tools, and
its sinews and gut
for bindings and glue.

(A) deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide was
used for clothing, its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut
(B) deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide used
for clothing, with its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut used
(C) deer: which was a source of meat, with its hide
used for clothing, antlers and bones for tools,
as well as its sinews and gut used
(D) deer: which, as well as being a source of meat,
its hide was used for clothing, its antlers and
bones for tools, and its sinews and gut were
(E) deer: with, as well as being a source of meat, its
hide used for clothing, its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut

I had a doubt the usage of 'which',. Although c is correct in its usage of which but its wordy...can someone correct me if i am wrong. thanks

A as well.
":" followed by "which" (C and D) or by "with" (E) sounds wrong to me

Sentence after : should refer to the details of the sentence before the :

Comma is generally used for conjunction.

C is not really wordy. Given:
1. Relative pronoun "which" was necessarily used to start the introduction of the usage of this wild animal.
2. Conjuntion "with" is used 2 times to (i) emphasise the usefulness of this animal and (ii) create parallel structure.

1. Rule of WHICH:
C) Which needs to be used with a comma as a non essential modifier.

2. PARALLEL STRUCTURES: It is acceptable if the second element in a parallel structure is parallel to the rest of the elements after it:

(A) deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide was
used for clothing, its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut

of meat is not parallel to the other elements BUT,
for clothing, for tools and for bindings and glue are parallel.

IMO,it is not grammatical correct to use connection words such as which, that or withand, namely etc after the colon to start the second sentence. That is why C, D and E re wrong at the first instance. Of course, this topic which tests the use parallelism essentially has several other mistakes in CDE. Aside them, between A and B

(A) Deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide was
used for clothing, its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut ------ correct choice.


(B) deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide used
for clothing, with its antlers and bones for
tools, and its sinews and gut used --- with its antlers distorts the meaning and spoils the parallelism. It looks as if the hide was used with its antlers and bones; the word used after the gut is again distortion of parallelism

A for me too, not the best parrallel there is but you can see that only "and" can keep parallelism. The other word like "with" is just not good.

Chose A.

Seems straight. Make all elements parallel. All other choices seem filled with errors.

wats wrong WITH B?



(B) deer: it was a source of meat, and its hide used for clothing, with its antlers and bones for tools, and its sinews and gut used

These are two errors in this sentence -

1. its hide used - means the hide used something...incorrect...hide was used by someone else....this must be in passive
2. with its antlers - means the hide used for clothing with antlers...

Hope this helps.

(E) deer: with, as well as being a source of meat, its hide used for clothing, its antlers and bones for tools, and its sinews and gut


Cool question
Things to note here:
Item is a list concept: "A,B,C and D" is the correct list construction.
This statement however is complex. The right of the colon describes a list of 2 things (not 4). It says the the deer is used for flesh and its other body parts are used for other stuffs.
Also, "with" introduces a phrase/clause which gives further information.
Also, the : should be followed by an independent clause
Considering these points, A is clearly the winner.
