I say B.

A. stationery which has a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe describe in some detail how to prepare a stuffing for >>>> Subject verb error.


B. stationery with a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe describes in some detail how to prepare a stuffing for >> Correct. Uses with and present tense verb


C. stationery having a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe‘s description gives some detail on preparing [color=#ff0000]a stuffing of[/color] >> Wordy, unidiomatic

D. stationery that has a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe described in some detail as to how to prepare a stuffing for


E. stationery with a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe is describing in some detail how to prepare for a stuffing for

Also "which" cannot be used to introduce "Restrictive clause - Scrawled on stationery". Even if it is used, it should have been preceded by a comma.

GREEN:PREP Phrase RED:verb BLUE = Subject
Scrawled on stationery
which has a letterhead from a title insurance company,
the recipe describe in some detail how to prepare a stuffing for chicken or turkey.

recipe need singular verb describes

A:Wrong. Which needs to be after a comma here. Only when which follows a preposition then a comma may/may not be needed. eg:On the table is a box in which i keep all my files.-->No need of comma.
B:Correct. SV agreement is proper for recipe..describes.
C:Wrong:Scrawled is a verb-ed modifier and needs to modify the recipe not the recipe's description.
D:Wrong: as to how to is wordy.
E:Wrong: how to prepare for is incorrect.

:-D



Is the usage of "that" in D correct? I know it is not the answer but I predicted that instead of which

IMO B

"stationery with" is preferred over other choices
and Stuffing for is correct (strike c)
b/w verbs describes/described/describing (B uses correct form of verb, & its easy if you are down to 2 choices based on stationery with)

D seems correct. this sentence requires an essential clause starting with that.

The underlined part, "the recipe describe.." has subject verb problem. It should be
"the recipe describes".

A --> is wrong due to subject verb agreement.
B --> correct the subject verb agreement.
C --> "Scrawled on...." modifies recipe. However it modifies description in this option hence wrong.

Other two changes the tenses wrongly.

However, I do need two clarifications.

1. In the first part of sentence "which" has been used. Normally, I have seen which preceded by comma. So is the usage of which wrong here.
2. In option C, "Description" is a noun, the first part of sentence can still modify description. Am I wrong here or right.

Regards,
Tushar

1. My understanding is the same as yours. That's one reason why we can eliminate A

2. In fact, the first part of sentence will indeed modify "description". So, I feel there is a close call between B and C, because I feel that the recipe‘s description can also be scrawled on stationery. However, I believe what tilts in favor of B is that recipe itself is a set instructions. So, description of the instruction is just redundant.

Basically C does not have a modifier problem, but a redundancy problem.

I also noticed that the first word in all options is "stationery". This doesn't happen in official questions. Just wish the people writing these questions would be mindful of these small things.

C you have

the recipe‘s description gives some detail on preparing a stuffing of

description gives is per se redundant because a description gives ALREADY an idea of something. As such, saying a description gives something is redundant.

Actually B , in fact, is correct because the recipe describe is more direct and elegant

Hope this helps

daagh sir,

Is'nt the use of WITH in option B wrong. It is sounding as if the scrawled was done with a letter head ( instead of a pen).

Or the "scrawled on the stationary" and the " with... phrase" 2 separate modifiers? I thought the sentence was trying to say that the recipe was scrawled on a stationary. And the stationary is marked with a letter from a specific company. Am I wrong in my understanding?

I feel that is true not only with B but also with all other choices. The topic erroneously makes the modifier after the word 'stationery" without a comma as if it is an essential modifier. Important thing is that the scrawling has been done on stationery, which incidentally happens to be a letter-pad of an insurance company. It matters little whether is it a letterhead or a scribbling pad or a notepad since these materials do not play a role in writing the recipe. That is the reason that the topic is itself is superfluous and wordy.
