This is parallelism. The sentence construction should be One legacy....to appeal...is to realize.

Therefore you only need to chose between C and D. Since the non underlined portion used people which is plural, use plural for the underlined one as well. Therefore, D is the answer here.

Please explain your answers.


this sentence requires a noun: the recent campain to people fifty years and over is... "noun"

Elim CDE

A, cannot have their refer to person.

B stands.



Gmatblackbelt,

Can you please explain a little more on why we are comparing noun to noun in this question...Can you tell me which part of the sentence made you realize that we are comparing nouns...

I choose D for llism (to appeal vs. to realize), and now I understand I was wrong, but isn't "to realize" an infinitive that act as a noun here as well...

thanks in advance

A. Error: Pronoun "their" (plural) refers to subject "a person" (singular). These two must agree in number
B. CORRECT: "legacy" + noun (ei. "realization"); "their" (pronoun) agrees in number with "people" (multiple)
C. Error: "legacy" + to verb form; (legacy is a reference to something)
D. Error: "legacy" + to verb form; (legacy is a reference to something)
E. Error: "realizing" has a noun form "realization", which is the better use

I already write about CORRECT BUT NOT PREFERED problem in this forum

there are many pattern which appear in oa in some sc problem but is considered error in other sc problem. one of the cases is the following

gmat dose not prefer "to do" "doing" used as noun , to be subject, or object of sentence though this use can appear in oa in other sc problems.

in this sentence, " to do", doing" is not prefered to be use as a noun. only B is best.

other cases are that

- direct object can be far from the verb but direct object touching the verb is prefered.
- adjectival can be far from the noun modified but adjectival touching the noun modified is prefered.

and many other cases.

Also, if you "cut the fluff" - you can read the sentence as:

"One legacy......is the realization"
vs
"One legacy...is to realize"

At this point, you know that legacy is a noun - so if you define a noun - then what follows should be a noun phrase.
So "the realization" is better than "to realize" - we don't want actions in this case.

So cutting the fluff here helps you eliminate most of the answer choices and focus only on the two that matter.

From there, it's as simple as spotting the singular/plurality issues in (A) and (B).

removing the Extra words from the sentences.

B. One legacy of Madison Avenue's recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is the realization that as people age, their concerns change as well.


E. One legacy of Madison Avenue's recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is realizing that as people age, their concerns change as well.

E is changing the meaning. legacy can't realize.

Hence i choose B.

Hello Souvik,

Here is my take on your question:

One legacy.... should link up to a noun ('realization' in this case) to make the sentence meaningful. D relates legacy with a verb .... "One legacy....to realize" is not a meaningful sentence.

Is this correct?


this is correct. because one legacy does not make a realization per se. As such, a verb can not follow. Hence., a legacy does or make it possible THE realization

Quote:
Concerns is not underlined should not we use his or her instead of their ???


This is a faulted approach. Instead, you should wonder : concerns is plural --> so we are talking about poeple and not a person. hence, we need their

Moreover, we have a clear hint in the first part of the question: people. As consequence, the meaning is distorted if later we have a shift talking about person. We would have a lack of sense of the sentence as whole.

Hope is clear

A. the realization that as a person ages, their
pronoun error

B. the realization that as people age, their
correct, now their refers to people

C. to realize that when a person ages, his or her
"to+verb" form, showing a purpose. but this is not the intended meaning.
should be "as" instead of "when" to show an action that happens in the same time as other action happens.

D. to realize that when people age, their
same error as in C

E. realizing that as people age, their
realizing is not a verb

a question in old og books.
in the patern
noun is to do/noun/doing

each noun , depending on its meaning, can go with only to do, or noun or doing. this is problem of idiom and we have to remember. it seems there are around 50 nouns which have pattern

noun is to do.

so we have to remember,

gmat today will not test un hard idiom like this one

Hey All,

Just wanted to add that a legacy has to be a noun, so the legacy can't be "to realize". That's why C and D are wrong.

hi can you explain why E is wrong? Can we consider "realizing" a noun?

A concrete noun, when available, is preferred to a gerund.
