can some one explain?


My ans is B.
To make comparison parallel (coloring VS all other sparrows' coloring)--> require "that of"--> eliminate A,C,E
In D, almost wholly dependent on.. , could modify the cypress grove.--> which is not the intended meaning.
Plus, B maintains //ism--> 1. lives,2. is almost wholly independent, and 3. has coloring

My take is B as well. That lives..., is..., and has... makes everything comma separated parallel. All other answer options have one or the other extra issue such as tense matching or improper pronoun referencing.

can you please explain a bit more on why B is correct?

I couldn't understand the comma before is (,is almost wholly) .. it didn't make sense to me but looks like this option is correct since you all picked this choice.

if you can, please break down the option B to explain the independent clause(s), lists ..
( the 'is' connected to which subject?)

thanks.

You, my friend, have impressed me with your thirst for knowledge. As your best-friend from now on, I'll tell you the secret, which many a wise men have devised over generations, that, which is the soul of the world's most popular language, that, which when known will help you speak like me. Of course, I am stooping low with my vocabs right now so you could comprehend me easily. Anyways, the secret is that I always break the sentence into logical parts to sound sensible.

Researchers have discovered a new species of sparrow | that lives only in cypress groves, | is almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, | and whose coloring is completely different from all other sparrows.

So as you read, we are still discussing about the new species of sparrow in each clause after every comma, which is the subject of the entire sentence. All parts of the sentence when put together should make a complete sense, the intent should be crisp, clear and convincingly conveyable.

How about that awesome thing you just learnt - hi five!!!!!

Hey Thanks for the explanation. I got it now ...

usually I see sentences "THAT" repeating so probably that made me to not see the list.

Researchers have discovered a new species of sparrow that lives only in cypress groves, that is almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and that has coloring completely different from that of

this is the structure I see for lists that involve 'that' ... anyways, I got it now.

and thanks for considering me your friend :-D I watch "How I met your mother " on CBS every monday!

so I can learn a thing or two from your play book!

+1 kudos to ya.

You are absolutely correct. The use of other means that the color of sparrows of this particular species is different from color of sparrows in all other species.

I understand how the Parallelism works in this sentence.

The Manhattan test explanation says that phrase "whose coloring is completely different from all other sparrows." implies that the their coloring is different from themselves. The word Other is used and doesnt that exlude this current species of sparrow being discussed. How is this so? I see this comparsion as logical. Can someone please shed some light on this issue .



I doubt that the correct answer is B. IMO answer should be D.


Ya i agree with fameatop
i too go with D

HERE IS OE

The original sentence intends to identify a sparrow by the fact that it lives in cypress groves, eats certain berries, and has certain coloring. All these facts about the sparrow must be presented in parallel form. However, in the original sentence, these facts are presented in different forms. We need to find a choice that presents them all in parallel fashion. Moreover, "whose coloring is different from all other sparrows" is incorrect. The sparrow's coloring is different from the coloring of other sparrows, not from the sparrows themselves. We need to find a choice that makes this clear.

(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence.

(B) CORRECT. This choice remedies the parallelism issue: "lives only in...., is almost wholly... and has coloring..." The comparison issue is also remedied: "has coloring different from that of all other sparrows." The comparison is now logically drawn between the coloring of the new species and the coloring ("that") of other species.

(C) This answer choice remedies neither the parallelism issue ("living..., is almost..., and whose coloring") nor the illogical comparison (coloring and sparrows).

(D) While this answer choice remedies the comparison, the parallelism issue persists from the original sentence.

(E) This parallelism issue has been remedied in this answer choice, but the illogical comparison has not. In addition, the correct idiomatic expression is "different from," not "different than."

First things first this is a 2 player game between B and D. One can spot easily that the right comparison will be 'different from that of' cause we are referring to the colourings of both species.

Now then, what's the problem with D? Well if you look closely you'll see that whose coloring is modifying the cypress trees when the coloring should modify the species. Therefore B is a better answer choice. With 'and, has coloring' we are going back to the original clause that is the description of this species of sparrow

Hope this makes it clear
Cheers!

this question is wrong. D is also correct.

the phrase "wholly dependent..." can be an adverbial phrase modifying the previous clause " that lives in groves" .

a similar pattern appears in gmatprep

"seven person is killed by shark this year, less than the number last year"

in above sentence, "less than..." is adverbial phrase mofifying the previous clause though it refers to "seven person". this phrase is considered both adjectival and adverbial fuctions.

so, D is correct too.

All the options except b & e can be eliminated as all the have pronoun whose & this pronoun is ambiguous
Now b/w b & e
B wins because it is simple present & expressing fact while option e is progressive & stating that sparrow is currently living

This is an MGMAT question. The Answer choice is given as B. But I dont understand how the answer is justified.

The Original choice can mean that the phrase "almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees " is acting as a modifier that describes how the sparrow survives/lives in the cypress trees... That phrases can logically act as a modifier and since it is given in the original sentence, we cannot say that this is not the intended meaning.

Then how can we simply say that the intended meaning of the author was to preserve parallelism among the three items: 'lives', 'is almost', and 'whose colouring'... May be the author meant the phrase starting with 'almost' to be used as a modifier and he wants parallelism only between the items 'lives' and 'whose coloring'. IT also makes sense logically. I think D should be the answer.

Yet nobody seems to have stressed on this point....

E) living only in cypress groves, depending almost wholly on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and having coloring completely different than - Faulty Comparison


The first notable split here is the comparison between the coloring of the sparrow and that of other sparrows. 'That Of' is important here, so choices A, C, E are eliminated - They compare the color of the sparrow too other sparrows

Between B & D - B maintains the parallelism, by using is almost wholly, where as D is not parallel.

Thus correct choice is B

This question is part of the GMAT Club Sentence Correction : Parallelism" Revision Project.

Researchers have discovered a new species of sparrow that lives only in cypress groves, almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees and whose coloring is completely different from all other sparrows.

A. that lives only in cypress groves, almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees and whose coloring is completely different from

B. that lives only in cypress groves, is almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and has coloring completely different from that of

C. living only in cypress groves, is almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and whose coloring is completely different from

D. that lives only in cypress groves, almost wholly dependent on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and whose coloring is completely different from that of

E. living only in cypress groves, depending almost wholly on the berries of a certain type of vine that grows on cypress trees, and having coloring completely different than

Spoiler: :: OE
The original sentence intends to identify a sparrow by the fact that it lives in cypress
groves, eats certain berries, and has certain coloring. All these facts about the
sparrow must be presented in parallel form. However, in the original sentence, these
facts are presented in different forms. We need to find a choice that presents them all
in parallel fashion. Moreover, "whose coloring is different from all other sparrows" is
incorrect. The sparrow's coloring is different from the coloring of other sparrows, not
from the sparrows themselves. We need to find a choice that makes this clear.
(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence.
(B) CORRECT. This choice remedies the parallelism issue: "lives only in...., is almost
wholly... and has coloring..." The comparison issue is also remedied: "has coloring
different from that of all other sparrows." The comparison is now logically drawn
between the coloring of the new species and the coloring ("that") of other species.
(C) This answer choice remedies neither the parallelism issue ("living..., is almost...,
and whose coloring") nor the illogical comparison (coloring and sparrows).
(D) While this answer choice remedies the comparison, the parallelism issue persists
from the original sentence.
(E) This parallelism issue has been remedied in this answer choice, but the illogical
comparison has not. In addition, the correct idiomatic expression is "different from,"
not "different than."

I agree, opted for B as well.

The reason being that it made more more sense for me and i'm anewbie in the verbal section :)

Yes, B is parallel: that lives somewhere, is something and has something else.

So, 3 clauses. All others seem to have issues.
