This is exactly why the GMAT is reducing the number of idiom-based questions, especially those that don't seem to affect the meaning of the sentence.

For this question, the proper form of the idiom is "claim to be able to assess". The second 'to' in the phrase is essential and idiomatic, even though it might sound a bit awkward or wordy to non-native speakers.

The idiom, "claim the ability to assess" would have been suspect but potentially correct, but in this question you are given the form "claim the ability of assessing", which is not idiomatic.

I believe that on the GMAT today, you wouldn't expect to see a choice between C & D because they both can convey proper meaning. The rest of the options, however, would still be fair game because they include obvious meaning flaws that should be spotted by both native and non-native speakers.

Not an easy question, but claim to be is right idiom.
D is correct.

I believe, we are over emphasizing the idiom issue. The real issue lies in Meaning.
As per original statement, from a one page writing sample is modifying the verb -"Claims", whereas it should modify the infinitive "to assess". It illogically says that firm claims from one page writing sample, giving sense that action of claiming is done in Writing Sample. Hence Incorrect.

Please note that both the usages are acceptable-
claims + that+ a subordinate clause
claims + infinitive

Fairly simple I would like to think.

A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims ________________________ more than 300 personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination and ambition.

(A) from a one-page writing sample that it can assess
(B) from a one-page writing sample it has the ability of assessing
Putting this prepositional phrase before the claim seems awkward.

(C) the ability, from a one-page writing sample, of assessing
"ability.....of" is idiomatically incorrect. I think it should be "ability.....to"

(E) being able to assess, from a one-page writing sample,
awkward again. also incorrect grammatically.

(D) to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess
The best choice. "to be able.....to" is idiomatically correct. This choice also convey the meaning well.

(D) to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess

On a similar occasion, different question though, I can't remember where (either a MGMAT or an OG , the explanation said something like:

" 'to assess' should be closer to the subject as 'from a one-page writing sample' interrupts the flow" !
Some people might remember better than I do.
Any takes?

B, C, E are not the correct idioms. (see note about "claim" below) --> incorrect.

D is the correct idioms and asserts the meaning of the sentence. --> correct

--- Claim usage (from Aristotle):
1. To claim that S + V: Used while proclaiming st
Marry claims that she can eat 10 bowls of rice.
2. Claim (noun) to + N: used to take control of assets
The eldest son laid claim to the father's property.
3. To claim to be able to do st:

Usually, "comma + -ing" indicates an adverbial modifier. But that can't be the case here: "including" can't modify the previous action. As Aditya said, ",including" is often used to introduce examples. It's very similar to ", such as."

Also, isn't CLAIMS TO a correct idiom from the above given options? Can we declare 'D' as the winner based on this?

I'd be careful about that. If you choose the right answer on the grounds that the other four have incorrect idioms, you had better be very confident that you are correct. "Claims + noun" can be correct in some cases, and "claims that" is fine. The big problem with the construction in A is that it throws a bunch of distorting text between "claims" and "that."

They both appear to have the same structure.

Your argument is right. In neither case "from a one page sample" modifies "claims".

Option C is wrong not because " from a one page sample" modifies "claims", but because wrong idiom "ability of" is used. Correct usage is "ability to".

Hi Anuj,

Thanks for posting your doubt here. :-)

In both the choices C and D, the prepositional phrase from one page sample modifies the action denoted by able to or ability of. However, Choice C is incorrect as it uses incorrect idiom ability of. The correct idiom is ability to or able to. Also, claim the ability is not the appropriate expression. The expression claim to be able to is better worded.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

In C, there is a wrong use of 'of assessing', but 'the ability' makes sense to me.
In D, the use of 'to assess' looks pretty nice. But, 'to be able' looks awkward to me.
I want to mean that the following sentence makes more sense than it is.
A firm claims the ability to assess more than three hundred personality traits.
I'm not questioning the OG answer, but it is totally my personal conviction.
Did i make any mistake to comprehend the meaning of the sentence, expert?
Thanks...

Hi GMATNinja,

I have a query. Please correct me if I am wrong. The intended meaning in the original sentence is that the firm is able to assess the traits from one-page writing sample.

We can disregard all other options by PoE and reach D. But in Option D, the one-page writing sample is set off between commas making it non-restrictive clause?

So if I read Option D: A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims to be able to assess more than three hundred personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination, and ambition.

This is fine and correct. However, doesn't it change the meaning of the sentence? Our original claim was that the firm is able to assess the traits using just 1 page of sample.

I know the doubt is too dumb. :)

A "Claims" and "that" should be next to each other.
B "Ability of" is incorrect.
C "Ability of" is incorrect.
D Correct.
E "Claims being" is incorrect. "Being" can be either a gerund, a present participle, or a verb, but in this case none of those options make sense.

Practice Question
Question No.: SC 122
Page: 694

A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one-page writing sample that it can assess more than three hundred personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination, and ambition.

(A) from a one-page writing sample that it can assess
(B) from a one-page writing sample it has the ability of assessing
(C) the ability, from a one-page writing sample, of assessing
(D) to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess
(E) being able to assess, from a one-page writing sample,


From Ron (Manhattan)

(C)
The correct idiom is 'the ability to assess'. However, that idiom would not work so well in this particular context; it would be used more to discuss the abstract notion of this ability.

(E)
'being' is needlessly wordy here.
This is not a passive voice construction, though. Ironically, the passive-voice constructions (such as Being amused is better than being angered) are the only ones in which 'being' is a CORRECT, non-wordy construction, since passive voice must take some form of 'to be'.

More to the point, 'claims being able...' is an incorrect idiom, so we don't even need to think about wordiness - it's already solidly wrong.

CLAIM

RIGHT:
They CLAIM THAT they CAN read minds.
They CLAIM TO BE ABLE to read minds.

WRONG:
They CLAIM BEING ABLE to read minds

GMATNinjaTwo & GMATNinja, Could you explain the prepositional phrase "from a one-page writing sample" in (D)? Does the prepositional phrase modified "analysis of handwriting"?

Using choice D, the sentence becomes:

    A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess more than three hundred personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination, and ambition.

The prepositional phrase "from a one-page writing sample" acts as an adverb, modifying the infinitive "to assess".

VKat, "claims to be" is certainly one correct form, and it's what we use in the correct answer here, so you know it's valid! However, there are other uses of the word "claim." As my colleague Ron (quoted by hazelnut above) points out, we can also say "claim that." We can also follow "claim" directly with a noun. Let's look at each form:

Claim [noun]: We are directly making a claim on something by saying that it is or should be ours.

To claim a prize, fill out this form.
Is someone going to claim this burrito, or should I throw it away?
Both sides claimed a victory in the debate last night.
Several Russian politicians claim a direct line of descent from the last tsar.

Claim to be: We are saying that we are something. As with the verb "is," this can be followed by a noun or a modifier ("I am the king" or "I am tall"). In the original q, "able to assess" serves as a modifier.

My friend was scammed by someone on the phone claiming to be a Microsoft representative.
I don't claim to be beautiful, but I'm not frightening to look at.
My cousin claims to be able to solve a Rubik's Cube in 12 seconds.

Claim that: We are saying that some statement is true. The part after "that" should always be an independent clause.

Several companies claim that their patents were infringed by the new product.
He claimed that he would get the job done overnight, but I didn't believe him.
