I chose D because the being in E was making me uncomfortable.

Rejecting the apprenticeship model of training social workers in
philanthropic agencies, twentieth-century reformer Edith Abbott was
convinced of social work education belonging in the university so that
students could be offered a broad range of courses dealing with social
issues.

A. of social work education belonging in the university so that
B. that social work education should be in the university, and that
C. about the importance of social work education belonging in the university while
D. that social work education belonged in the university, where
E. of the necessity of social work education being in the university and

1. "belonged" is more active and direct than "belonging", so A and C are out
2. E is very wordy, so out
3. Between B and D, we need to show the relationship between the two clauses, so choose D.

Is it convinced that or convinced of? Does it even matter?

Hi,
I ruled out A, C,E. Between B and D,B shows parallelism and D says BELONGED IN..which does not look ok.Please advice why D is correct.

Hi Shipra,

Thanks for posting your question here.

Let's talk about the intended meaning of the sentence first. The sentence says that Abbot rejected the apprenticeship model of training social workers in philanthropic agencies because he was sure that the social work education must be imparted at the university level. Why did he think so? He thought so because he felt that students could be offered a broad range of courses dealing with social issues. So per the original sentence he was only convinced of a single point. The part starting with "so that" presents the reasoning for his conviction.

Now Choice B is grammatically as well as logically incorrect.

1. It is logically incorrect because the forced parallelism in the sentence now conveys that Abbot was convinced of two things. The second entity in the list is no more the reasoning for his convictions.
2. The grammatical flaw in the sentence is usage of "should be". The usage of this verb now suggests that inclusion of the social work education in university is his command or demand that must be met. The inclusion appears to be his diktat rather than his belief.

Choice D indeed is the correct answer as it clearly conveys the intended meaning. The phrase "belonging in" is absolutely correct. It is the university that the said education belong. Commonly, we use the phrase "belong to" which means someone owns something. Here we cannot use "belong to" because the university does not own the social work education. It "belongs in" the university as in its right place is in the university.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

I got the answer as D but I'm still confused about the structure of the question.
can u please explain all the options.

A is wrong mainly because of the idiom 'convinced of.' When we report an author's thinking, it customary to report his philosophy in a relative clause starting with 'that.'

If i assume while ,in option c, to be representing an action at the same point of time then the option c also makes sense.
Can someone pl help what are the errors with option c
