Let's build on the non-underline part:
"critics denounce the relaxations"
The correct AC should be parallel. It is correct to move the verb before the essential modifier, which is long as ours "that Censorship Board allow production houses to each year to provide them enough space to make creative piece of works"

Quote:
A) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

Not parallel
Quote:
B) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative piece of works to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry.

Parallel, but: "consider sb to be" is not my dream. "Proponents of what?" is a good remark, but if we have one issue discussed and both proponens and opponents, their aim is rather clear. I hope so at least.
Quote:
C) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allows production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

Not parallel.
Quote:
D) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide the producers enough space to make creative pieces of work vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

Parallel. "consider sh + adj" is correct. My choice.
Quote:
E) Proponents of relaxations that local governments allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider the relaxations to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

Not parallel. "consider sh to be" again.

"While" introduces the second clause, so the words following it should be parallel to the words opening the first clause:

1st: "Proponents of relaxations [that super long modifier] consider" should be "Proponents consider relaxations [modifier] +noun/adjective" in order to be parallel to:
2nd clause: "while critics denounce the relaxations as..."

Let me try to explain with the 3-2 technique.
Just after the underline portion we have "while critics denounce the relaxations". so our answer choice should be in parallel with this part- tat is "proponents consider relaxations".

So we are down to two answer choices- B and D.

now let us scrutinize B and D closely. the only difference between B and D is the use of the phrase "the producers" in option D as against "them" in option B. Now in option B "them" can refer to either 'censorship board' or 'production houses'. So this is ambiguous.

Clearly D is the corect option.

IMO D.

Carcass.

Please excuse my jumping in.

I think The censorship board is singular, not plural. e.g. the censorship board of Australia.
The plural version of "the board" is "the Boards".

For instance:
(1) The board of directors is meeting this afternoon ==> means directors server for only 1 board in a company.
(2) Boards of directors generally set broad corporate policy. ==> means directors serve on a number of different boards of directors.

Please correct if I'm wrong.

good discussion guys, updated the post with OA nd OE

Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses to each year to provide them enough space to make creative piece of works consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry while critics denounce the relaxations as a leeway that increases the revenue of the production houses but damages the moral character of the children.

Do not go by the wordiness of this question. If you are able to identify the grammatical construction the question becomes pretty straightforward.

(A) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

The pronoun "them" in the phrase "provide them enough …" clearly refers to "production houses," the immediately preceding plural noun. However, the pronoun "them" is used again in the phrase "consider them vital ….,"; in this usage its antecedent is unclear. “them” should logically refer to the "relaxations" but based on its position in the sentence it could also refer to “production houses”.

(B) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative piece of works to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry.

In placing "consider" at the beginning of the sentence, this choice is able to avoid a second use of the pronoun "them," correcting the pronoun issue. However, the use of "to be" in this context is unidiomatic. The proper idiom is "consider x y" not "consider x to be y." In this case "consider tax breaks . . . vital tools" is unidiomatic and thus incorrect.

(C) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allows production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

This choice does not solve the pronoun problem from the original sentence. Moreover it creates another error by using the singular verb “allows” for the plural noun “relaxations”.

(D) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide the producers enough space to make creative pieces of work vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

CORRECT. In placing "consider" at the beginning of the sentence, this choice is able to avoid a second use of the pronoun "them," correcting the pronoun issue. It does not contain any other awkward or wordy construction.

(E) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider the relaxations to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry

This choice avoids any pronoun ambiguity by replacing the second "them" in the original sentence with the use of "relaxations" after “consider.” However, the repetition of "relaxations" makes this choice somewhat wordy. A more apparent error is the use of "to be", which makes the construction “consider X to be Y” incorrect. Proper idiom is “consider X Y.”

IMO
The sentence should read

Proponents consider X vital for economic growth while critics denounce the X as a leeway that increases the revenue of the production houses but damages the moral character of the children.

X = "relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide the producers enough space to make creative pieces of work"

Only d does this in a right way

A) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry. The 2 thems refer to two different things Production houses and relaxations. not consistent...moreover the that clause might describe proponents
B) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative piece of works to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry.
C) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allows production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider them vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry
D) Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide the producers enough space to make creative pieces of work vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry
E) Proponents of relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide them enough space to make creative pieces of work consider the relaxations to be vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry it seems the that clause is modifying proponents

Based on ligic and meaning Proponents consider something NOT proponent of relaxations consider

b and D

In B them is ackward and seems refers to houses that is right from grammatical standing point BUT not from the meaning

The sentence becomes too long and without "control"; instead if we put a subject we have sense of the whole situation

D makes sense

BTW Board is plural so C go out immediately

I think The censorship board is singular, not plural. e.g. the censorship board of Australia.
The plural version of "the board" is "the Boards".

For instance:
(1) The board of directors is meeting this afternoon ==> means directors server for only 1 board in a company.
(2) Boards of directors generally set broad corporate policy. ==> means directors serve on a number of different boards of directors.

Please correct if I'm wrong.


Hi pqhai,

You are correct, "board" is singular. Carcass, Answer choice (C) is incorrect because of the ambiguous pronoun "them" and the subject-verb agreement error in which the singular verb "allows" does not agree with the plural "relaxations". Moreover, "proponents of relaxations" is not parallel with "critics denounce"

Vercules

Board plural? "Allow" related to "relaxations" and not to the board? WRONG!
Board is singular, but we shouldn't use "allows" because this sentences is in subjunctive mood. The verb "propose", when used as a transitive verb (that is, it needs an object) uses the subjunctive mood, which requires the verb to be in bare form.

The answer choice E efficiently changes from censor board to local governments and makes clear referent to them and also preserves the original meaning of sentence

My musings are: 1. Are proponents and proponents of relaxation the same? No; there is substantial difference in the meaning. We must carry the proponents of relaxations in the other choices. Otherwise they are invalid; So B and D are out.

2. The pronouns are playing havoc; them in two places in A, referring to two different nouns, them in B., them in C, them in E are all highly ambiguous. This leaves us only D, which is already out, as my first issue.

3. A censor Board is a specialist body, meant for a specific purpose. It is by all means a more efficient team. To change it local government is not desirable; there is deep alteration of intent in E.

4. Consider to be In B and E. are dubious idioms.

Of the above four, which is the most passable error?

I believe D is preferable over E because of Parallelism.......... Proponents consider the relaxations is parallel to Critics denounce the relaxations.

and if u r asking 'proponents of what' than you should ask 'critics of what ?' too.

ohhh, it's true! I've got it!!! ;) Subjunctive!! why didn't I remember "propose" is subjunctive :))

Thank you, mespinosa3@live.com!! credit to you!


Hi Lucy,

I'm not sure where is the word "propose" in the sentence.
I don't think it's about subjunctive here; here is my reasoning -

The money that he gave me yesterdayis all spent.
The vouchers that he/they gifted me yesterdayare all used. -> Here 'are' is referring to 'vouchers' not 'he/they'

Thus, in original sentence, 'that' is acting as an essential modifier.
Hope it helps !

Thank you, mespinosa3@live.com!! credit to you!


Hi Lucy,

I'm not sure where is the word "propose" in the sentence.
I don't think it's about subjunctive here; here is my reasoning -

The money that he gave me yesterdayis all spent.
The vouchers that he/they gifted me yesterdayare all used. -> Here 'are' is referring to 'vouchers' not 'he/they'

Thus, in original sentence, 'that' is acting as an essential modifier.
Hope it helps !


Hi MKS,
Sorry, my bad. Indeed, you're right and you corrected me ;) I have just re-read the correct sentence and find that the structure of this sentence is "A consider X Y". Then, back to my original question: Why is the verb "allow" not in the form "allows"? As far as I know, "board" is collective noun --> "allows" should be used.

Proponents consider relaxations that Censorship Board allow production houses each year to provide the producers enough space to make creative pieces of work vital for the economic growth of the entertainment industry while critics denounce the relaxations as a leeway that increases the revenue of the production houses but damages the moral character of the children.

Hi Lucy,
That is a very nice question !
I used to think same way; however, Collective nouns DON'T follow singularity all the times.
