B is a gmat trap (fake that parallelism) I will point that in a bit.

Convinced is "persuasive" form of belief. It means very sure. Remember the subjunctive? Does it use should / would??

"that parallelism" works like this :
that............and that...........

E.g convinced that .............. and that.......
However look at the meaning. The use of "and" disintegrates the old sentence where you were talking about "social work". suddenly started talking about "student". Edith Abbott will be very unhappy

What are you convinced about if I disintegrate the sentence into two parts -

social work education should be in the university - still not convinced, I need more explanation !
where students could be offered a broad range of courses dealing with social issues. ---> that is the evidence I need for being convinced.

Common sense overrides any grammar rules (parallelism)

I selected B, because of "belonged in" >> Thought was that the wrong idiom usage in D weighs over the wrond conjuntion "and" used to connect the sub-ordinate clauses .

But in D belonged in is not the idiom...

Belong in is a correct idiom when trying to express something being in it's right place.

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.

Shipra

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.

IMO it is D. The choice was between B and D.

B. that social work education should be in the university, and that - The second 'That' makes the statement wordy, secondly the subject was 'Convinced' a strong word that refers to solidity but the choice B follows up with the word 'Should' that refers to 'might be' a probable scenario. There is a Logic mismatch, hence RULED OUT!

D. that social work education belonged in the university, where - First - Convinced is followed by 'that social work education BELONGED...'! Solid statement. Second- where modified the University which is absolutely logical in structure. - Correct

I'm with F - LOL! My take is D. We need "that" to connect the phrase - leaving us with B and D. The 'students offered" phrase is logically connected to the conviction as previously stated and D connects these ideas perfectly.

D it is...

Can anyone still explain why, if at all, we are overlooking the incorrectness of "belong in"???

I am pretty sure that in some other question, we would have out right rejected an answer choice because of the presence of "boleng in"!!!

Thanks
