Can someone please explain why is D wrong?

The adverbial modifiers are correct as opposed to the adjectival ones.

Here in this sentence, "well" is correct as opposed to "good".

So D is wrong.

E. almost all of whom play as well


in answer choice E as well as can be ambiguous as it leads to 2 meanings:
students play as well(good) as their instructor.
students play and their instructor also play.

in my opinion answer should be D.

can anyone put a light on it.

Never use 'as good as' on the GMAT! Its what is commonly understood verbally but its wrong in written language.

'which' should not refer to people, 'whom' is much more well suited.

Therefore, the correct answer is E.

"Good" is an adjective, and "well" is an adverb. Therefore the adjective ("good") cannot refer to a verb ("play").

He plays good... wrong
He plays well.... right

Use of adjective "good" to refer to the verb "play" makes the option D wrong.

"As good as" can be used when "good" is used as an adjective.

My essay is as good as yours..... correct. ("good" refers to "essay" an an adjective)

But as an adverb "good" is wrong.

I play as good as you do. ... wrong.("good" refers to "play" as an adverb)

I agree with your analysis. Just to play devil's advocate - doesn't it mean that - On the tournament roster are listed several tennis students, almost all of whom play as well as their instructor. Meaning that most of them play along with their instructor?

Original sentence :

On the tournament roster are listed several tennis students, most all of which play as good as their instructor


Intended meaning in own words : The tournament record has the names of many students who play as nicely as their instructor plays.
The sentence is primarily concerned with the students. Now imagine if it meant like this ::

The student's names are on the tournament roster, and they play. Also their instructor plays. Wouldn't it be an odd construction ?
If the sentence had to introduce the instructor too as the subject, it could have done it in a better way.
Something like - Several tennis students, who play with their instructor, have their names listed on tournament roster.
I have modified the sentence to introduce the "instructor" properly.

Also the word "good" in original sentence tells us that the quality of students' game is considered.

I also marked it D first. But apart from the grammar part as highlighted in earlier posts, the meaning also plays a role here

daagh , VeritasPrepKarishma - please correct me if I am wrong in my reasoning here.

Issue: Idiom

Analysis:
1) The correct form to use adverb "well" to modify verb "play". "Good" is incorrect as it is adjective. This eliminates (A), (B) and (D)
2) Between "which" and "whom", "whom" is the correct pronoun to refer to people.


A. most all of which play as good
B. most all of whom play as good
C. almost all of which play as well
D. almost all of whom play as good
E. almost all of whom play as well

Answer: E.

IMO Ans :E

For all who stuck up between D & E.

The confusion between good and well comes from their similar meanings, and a general confusion between adjectives and adverbs. Take a moment to think about what the word is modifying: if it’s a verb, you’d do well to use well; otherwise, the good choice is good.

students [coma] -we need to modify students

as students are lively people we can not use which->whom
then we also need to modify play by adverb. good is adjective, well is adverb

the only answer fitting those needs is E

--> we use almost, not most to modify another adverb.

A. most all of which play as good
B. most all of whom play as good
C. almost all of which play as well
D. almost all of whom play as good
E. almost all of whom play as well

Though I get the logic of good being an adjective and can't be used in place of an adverb, isn't 'as well as' same in meaning as 'also'? It doesn't makes any sense in option E if that's the case. I eliminated option E just because of this construction.

anurag16, "as well" can be used similarly to "also," but that's not the meaning here.

"As X as" is an idiom meaning that two things are equal in terms of some modifier, either an adjective or an adverb. We can say that someone's cheeks are "as red as a rose" or that someone swims "as nimbly as a seal." In this case, we're using the modifier "well" to describe how people play. They play well. How well? As well as their instructor. We could just as easily have said "as skillfully as" or "with as much precision as" or something like that.

A. most all of which play as good- INCORRECT - which can't be used here to refer to ppl
B. most all of whom play as good- INCORRECT - usage of most is wrong
C. almost all of which play as well- INCORRECT - which can't be used here
D. almost all of whom play as good- INCORRECT - instead of the adjective good, an adverb should come here
E. almost all of whom play as well- CORRECT- well is modifying play. For eg- he plays well. Usage of good here is wrong.

Although i got it wrong realized my mistake after reading the options again.
So adverbs and adjective are at play here.
