Ok let’s delve.

A. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental

A is a confirmed fragment. So no discussion is required on that; In addition, we also know that the use of ‘since’ and ‘therefore’ are redundant and use of one of them is enough establish cause and effect.

B. The internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another and, therefore, discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental—B rectifies the error by removing the ‘since’ and retaining the ‘therefore; An error in the original is rectified; It doesn't mean to change the meaning.

C. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate and inspire one another, they can discoversolutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique development

D. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can consequently discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental

E. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, color=#0000ff][b]they can discover solutions[/color] through the formation of unique development processes and the convergence of diverse cultures


In C, D and E, can you spot the phrase ‘they can discover’; It is not part of the original text; the original only says they discover solutions; ‘discover’ is not the same as ‘can discover’ You can see lot of such examples in GMAT SC

A. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental -- a fragment

B. The internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another and, therefore, discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental ---- Correct choice; the removal of the ‘since’ rectifies the fragmentation.

C. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique development— they can discover – changes the meaning

D. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can consequently discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental --- same altered intent as in C




E. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the formation of unique development processes and the convergence of diverse --- same as in C and D

Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental process.

A. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental - It is incomplete sentence, there should be some main or independent clause. ''Since internet allows (a & b) and c.........''
B. The internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another and, therefore, discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental - Main sentence intend to show the cause-effect of internet availability therefore omitting 'since' alter the intent and hence changes the meaning.
C. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique development - Sentence is ok but 'with' is missing with collaborate. Pronoun 'They' can only refer to professionals. Since
D. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can consequently discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental - Correct. Subordinating conjunction ''Since'' correctly connects IC and DC.
E. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the formation of unique development processes and the convergence of diverse cultures - swapping of nouns does not go well with the non-underlined part.

What is OA ?

I know you should not do this on the GMAT, but this example was so clear for me when reading, even without knowing the rules, B just sounds perfect while every other answer sounds weird and akward ...

B. The internet allows professionals (to collaborate with and inspire one another and, therefore, discover solutions) through (the convergence of and the formation of) a unique developmental process

1. to collaborate with and inspire one another and discover solutions --- list parallelism – three items in the list.
2. the convergence of and the formation of ----- two part parallelism

These are the two parallel sets.

the internet allows few things...bla bla bla, and therefore discover - parallel

C,D, and E - internet is the subject, but then, "they" appears...

developmental - not the same as development
culture process - again incorrect.

agree with B.

Experts:

Apart from the reasons listed above, can we eliminate C, D and E on the grounds that 'they' refers to professionals in the subordinate part of the sentence and hence it cannot act as a subject of the entire sentence?

I thought about it too, But seems to me it is not the case.

About daagh's approach: it is good, I frequently forget to look at the initial intended meaning at (A), but seems to me we can not use it as the main argument.
What if the sentence in (A) is very bad and has a wrong meaning.

---------------------------
Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental process.
----------

A. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental
"Since" and "therefore" together - redundancy

B. The internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another and, therefore, discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental
Good

C. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique development
We can not use "collaborate" here without "with"

D. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can consequently discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental
"Since" and "consequently" together - redundancy

E. Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, they can discover solutions through the formation of unique development processes and the convergence of diverse cultures
This one is bery tricky for me. I am not sure. But I think that "the formation of unique development processes" and "the convergence of diverse cultures" are not independent parts of a list. First of all diverse cultures converge and only after this unique process is formed. And that os why E is wrong.
Because "convergence" goes after "process"

Use of since can be used in 2 senses.
- since= because
- since= a particular time in the past

Since 1947, India has been independent
( used to mark time)

Since it may rain, it would be a wise decision to carry an umbrella to the market.

Hope that clears up the confusion

Consider kudos if that helped!!

Hello GMATNinja
Is the use of development to modify processes is acceptable?
modifier developmental seems better.
Can I use to it eliminate answer choices C and E ?
