+1 D

eliminate choices A,C,E

although a bit confused here..
we are comparing countries with US or may be talking about countries giving example of US.

Any thoughts

Option B – This option does not make sense. There is only 1 US in the world, the phrase after US “with high debt and floating exchange rates” may wrongly suggests that the stimulus measures are generally not very effective in THE US which has high debt and floating exchange rates. It may be effective in THE US where there is less debt. Distorts the meaning.

:-D

so this one is less about such as /like split and more about distorted meaning.. was lucky to get it right though :)

This was a bit tricky for me. How do we know US is used as an example (Such as) ? It might have been a very specific example (Like)!
Any thoughts?

Can you use a comma to separate those two independent clauses? I though the answer was (C) despite not being a huge fan or 'like' I found the second part of the sentence better structured

Please advice on the OA here

Thanks!

The original article from which this sentence has been picked up can be looked up on google. Just copy the sentence and paste it in google . Check the article from nytimes.

That means A is the answer .

Guys, any news on A versus D here? I'm going with A. Know why? Cause in D, I believe we cannot just use a comma for separating those two sentences. What do y'all think?

Cheers!

Hey Buddy

Option D:(Stimulus measures are generally not very effective in countries such as the U.S., countries with high debt and floating exchange rates)

I think the part after comma in option D is an appositive phrase, which modifies US. So i guess there is a comma required as appositive phrases always provide non vital information. Option D seems to be the best answer choice here.

Good going fight to survive.
This answer should be D. Here they use a rare type of modifier called the absolute noun modifier.

"such as" - A, C and E out.

In B, we cant have a past tense as per the meaning of the sentence.
"the US with high debt and floating charges"? Are there different types of US and this one is with high debt and floating charges?....Incorrect.

D uses "such as", is in present tense and introduces an appositive to remove any ambiguity. Correct.
