(A) the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recover
(B) and the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered
(C) the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered
(D) in fact, they are disappointed when patients recovered
(E) the workers are disappointed at the recovery of patients, in fact


(A) the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recover - Correct.

(B) and the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered - Incorrect. We need an independent clause after semicolon.

(C) the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered - Incorrect. Tense error

(D) in fact, they are disappointed when patients recovered - Incorrect. Pronoun error.

(E) the workers are disappointed at the recovery of patients, in fact - Incorrect. Sentence awkwardly ends with in fact.

Answer: A

B, C and D : All have incorrect tense form.

E is awkward.

A is the best. :)

(D) in fact, they are disappointed when patients recovered

(E) the workers are disappointed at the recovery of patients, in fact


MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The easiest way for you to deal with this sentence is to look for any glaring grammatical errors that might eliminate several choices. In fact, choices B, C and D all make the same mistake in tense agreement. The caregivers enjoy. This is present tense. Hence ‘recover’ is correct, not ‘recovered’. That leaves choices A and E. A is shorter and simpler than E. Choice A is the correct answer.

(B) and the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered

(C) the workers are, in fact, disappointed when patients recovered

(D) in fact, they are disappointed when patients recovered

(E) the workers are disappointed at the recovery of patients, in fact



(A) Dont see any issues with the sentence
(B) Incorrect ==>"Disappointed when patients recovered" 2 present tense. The Correct one should be dissapointed when patients have recovered.
(C) Same as B ==> Incorrect
(D) Same as B ==> incorrect
(E) Changes the meaning. Incorrect


So (A) is the right answer
