Although the square root of a negative number has no real value, it is not necessarily true that equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicableA) equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicableB) equations involving such imaginary numbers have no practical applicationsI eliminated options C, D and E for the following reasons. After eliminating them, I was left with A and B. B is more precise, and clear in meaning than B is. C) equations involving these inapplicable imaginary numbers are practicalThis option changes the meaning by making the numbers inapplicable, Eliminated D) equations involving imaginary numbers such as these are inapplicable practicallyPractically inapplicable is much better than inapplicable practically E) there is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these Wordy. "As these" is an unnecessary addon

Although the square root of a negative number has no real value, it is not necessarily true that equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable A) equations involving imaginary numbers like these are practically inapplicable B) equations involving such imaginary numbers have no practical applications  CORRECT C) equations involving these inapplicable imaginary numbers are practical  misplaced modifier D) equations involving imaginary numbers such as these are inapplicable practically  awkward E) there is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these  lengthy and awkward B is the best option. It contains 'such' not like and it is short and concise and is in active voice also.

B is the winner here.
We need the adjective "practical" to qualify applications.

E) There is no practical applications for equations involving such imaginary numbers as these  there is no practical applications– SV error: it should be  there are no practical applications, since the real subject applications is plural

The word "these" must be followed by a noun, am I right? In that case the only valid answer would be B.

I could come down to a and b but chose a.Isn't these referring to the noun 'Square root...' and is therefore correct?Or like should only be followed by a Noun,never a pronoun?
