Can some one explain the differebce between b and c


Here is the best way to differentiate choice A, B and C

(A) each of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was
(B) all of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which they were
(C) all of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was


In B and C, "all" is one of the SANAM pronouns (Some, Any, None, All and Many ) that can be either singular or plural depending upon the context of the sentence, or more specifically based on the 'of' construction. Therefore, since its "of the campus buildings" and buildings is plural then the rest of the sentence must also be plural
Since C uses "it", a singular verb. This makes C incorrect.

While B correctly uses "they", there is a meaning error in B. Specifically, all of the campus buildings cannot be "a monument". As such, B is incorrect because it implies that all of the buildings across all campuses represent 1 monument

A is correct because "each" is singular so it agrees with the singular pronoun "it". "Each" also correctly implies that each building is a monumnet by itself.

Hi,
the Q is all about choosing correct combination of each/every/all of the buldings with a monument and pronoun was/were.....
a monument is speaking of each building so EACh and pronoun IT is required

Only A follows it correctly
A

+1 for A.

Here use of each is correct as we are talking about buildings.(Eliminate B,C,D)

Further 'it' should be used along with 'each' for pronoun reason.(Eliminate E)

"A" is the right choice as the sentence is meant to speak about each of the buildings within the campuses.

(C) all of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was . Incorrect - All (plural ) and It (Singular )
(D) every campus building a monument to the era in which they were . Incorrect - Every (Singular ) and they (plural )
(E) each of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which they were . Incorrect - Each ( Singular ) and they ( plural )
Though A seems better , still in a fix between A and B . :?

Here the meaning of the sentence is that inside the campus you take in consideration, EACH, one by one, building and bla blah blah.

hence, all is wrong in option B.

Hope this helps

Perhaps nowhere else in America can one see a greater span of architectural history than on Ivy League campuses with their blend of the classic and the contemporary, each of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was built.

(A) each of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was ==> Each is singular which matches with "it was" ===> CORRECT
(B) all of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which they were ==> Plural - incorrect
(C) all of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which it was ==> One Singular & One Plural - Incorrect
(D) every campus building a monument to the era in which they were ==> Every & were is incorrect
(E) each of the campus buildings a monument to the era in which they were[/quote] ==> Each and were is incorrect

Hence, Answer is A

Did you like the answer? Hit Kudos :good

A is correct as it has correct SVA
B is wrong as a monument refers to the single building so we have to use each of
C same error as B and incorrect SVA.
D incorrect SVA
E Incorrect SVA

This sentence correctly pairs "each (singular)" with a singular verb "was." It is fine
