Hi can you explain the above question ?


Hi mate.

Popular child psychologists have advocated that parents discipline male children similarly to the fashion in which they discipline daughters.

(A) similarly to the fashion in which they discipline
Wrong. comparison "male children" vs "the fashion" (parents discipline X (male children) similarly to Y (the fashion) <== wrong)

(B) in the same manner that they would use with
Wrong. comparison grammar. "in the same X that ...." is wrong. The correct structure should be "in the same manner as ....."

(C) like they would handle
Wrong. "Like" only + noun/noun phrase. [Like + clause] is always wrong.

(D) as they discipline
Wrong.
- If you pick D, you assume EVERY parents have both boy and girl. That's wrong meaning. The correct meaning is that Parents discipline boys as they would (unsure future) discipline girls (if they have).
- Good writing usually avoids repeating main verb (discipline) in one sentence. If the verb is the same, you should omit it, instead you should use auxiliary verb (do/did/will/would).

(E) as they would
Correct.
- (As + clause) is correct grammar.
- E conveys good meaning; in addition, E avoids repeating main verb (discipline). The structure of E is: parents discipline male children as they would (discipline) girls.

Hope it's clear.

D assumes that the parents are already disciplining daughters .. but the 'sense' of the sentence talks about a hypothetical situation about how those same parents who have male children 'would' treat daughters if they were to have them.

(E)? for correct meaning
parents discipline male children as they would (discipline) daughters.

because they(parents) may or may not have daughter. More like hypothetical situation.

(D) cant be correct because it conveys that Parents have daughter.



CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG.

between D and E
E - we can rephrase as
parents discipline X as they would Y
D - parents discipline X as they discipline Y - redundant.

Option E

When we repeat the modal aux verb in the second part of the sentence, shouldn't it be present in the first part as well?

Not necessarily - the rule is that for a parallel structure the repeated words (even a verb) may be omitted from the second element if the meaning is not obscured. In this case the sentence before omission is:

Parents discipline male children as they would discipline daughter.

Since "discipline" is already there in the first element and no ambiguity arises because of its omission in the second part, option E is alright.

I can tell that C is wrong, right away, since like is only supposed to be used for nouns and noun phrases. B is also wrong as ‘In the same manner that’ is ungrammatical.It should be ‘in the same manner as’. A is wrong because it is comparing male children to ‘the fashion’. D is wrong because it assumes that the parents already have daughters and that they discipline the daughters.

This means that E is correct
