C and D maintain ||sm "to appeal is... to realize"

b/w C and D, going to keep "people" as in the concrete portion...

so my choice is D

ok, I thought about this one again and saw that I fell in the trap... "legacy is the realization"... so I agree that the answer should be B 8-)

Clearly 'B'.

We need a noun here 'the realization', 'A' is wrong, and 'B' perfectly suits.

I think this is not a problem of a noun, the realization.

One legacy is to realize something... that makes sense.
Because we often say, "my dream is to pass the GMAT"

The problem here is as versus when.

In GMAT, when is used to express the exact time. Putting "exactly" before when, we can test whether "when" is properly used.

In contrast, "as" emphasizes ongoing nature of an event.

(Exactly) when people age, they become weak. => nonsense

As people age, they become weak. => good

That's it. Any refutation is welcome.[/u]

B for me

"one legace is to realise that" vs "one legacy is the realisation that"

to realise is a verb form but i think we need a noun form here.

as and when can be used without too much error here.

Ex: when you grow up, u will understand
as u grow up, u will understand

either of them are correct ...

It has to be between b and c as the other choices have grammetical errors of grouping singulars with plurals..out of B abd C, B appears more logical to me, so according to me,

B is the answer...

I agree. The OA is B. However, I am still confused why their refers back to a person.

hi
in option A:

(A) the realization that as a person ages, their

Here the pronoun THEIR..according to meaning should refer to PERSON...which is singular.

hence pronoun error is present and not sub-verb.

hope it helps

Hi sakiii

The problem with A is Pronoun. "A person" is singular, so "their" is incorrect.

Hope it's clear.

Hi blueseas

I don't see any problem with B.
(1) "people" is plural ==> pronoun "their" is correct.
(2) "concerns" is noun, not verb. The main verb is "change".

Hope it helps a bit.

I was wondering if someone could point out why the last choice, E, is wrong. I was leaning toward the "realizing" and i realized that I generally am having issues with the gerund endings. Here I chose the right answer but I can explain why E should not be right, in particular the use of the "-ing", anyone have thoughts? Experts?
