C for me ..
School integration plans that involve busing between suburban and central-city areas have contributed, according to a recent study, to significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces any future need for busing.
(A) significant increases ( plural ) in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces ( Singular )
(B) significant integration increases in housing, which, in turn, reduces - akward
(C) increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces
(D) increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing- Misplaced modifier problem .
(E) significantly increase ( singular ) housing integration, which, in turn, reduce ( plural ) .

OA Pls !!

A.
significant should modify 'increases'.
in 'C' it modiies the whole phrase.

IMO, A.

As prasun84 mentioned, signficant modify increases.
Also, 'housing integration' reduces, not the increases.

(A) significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces
(B) significant integration increases in housing, which, in turn, reduces
(C) increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces
(D) increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing
(E) significantly increase housing integration, which, in turn, reduce

pls explain


A - "significant increases ... reduces" - wrong verb
B - "significant integration increases ... reduces" - wrong verb and change meaning
D - "reducing" not needed gerund.

I was between C and E.

But E seems have two mistakes: to put an adverb in the middle of a infinitive "to significantly increase" and "reduce" seems to point.

Therefore, IMO C.

OA Pls

Housing Integration is the subject if you notice and is singular.
Hope that helps...

x contributed to significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces --contributed to significant increases in housing integration, increases is odd..and a run on sentence ....ruled out.
x contributed to significant integration increases in housing, which, in turn, reduces -- contributed to significant integration increases is odd and a run on sentence ....ruled out.
x contributed to increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces --hold
x contributed to increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing --hold
x contributed to significantly increase housing integration, which, in turn, reduce run on..and awkward construction
Out of C &D, D is more succinct. So IMO it is D.
What is the OA?

What's wrong with A? ... housing integration, which, in turn, reduces...

I think it's the best answer

I was between C and D and finally chose D

i wont be surprised to See OA C. But I am not too sure of whether which refers correctly to its intended antecedent
