Hi,
Lets try to shorten this long sentence a little bit.

A. Blah, a certain television station....depends .... on ....type of.... money .....; this seriously calls into question..... in recognizing television stations in Mid-sea continent.
There, found whats wrong. A is OUT. But atleast we got to what the author is trying to say.

B is out for the same reason. I am sure will others too.

C. That the 1996 Mid-sea Continent Journalist Tea Party Award winner's, Xanam Television Station in south-eastern province of Xanadu, reporting of favorable news depends hugely and undeniably on Xanadu government's donating huge and often scandalous sums of money to the Audio-vision council of South-eastern Xanadu, a very rich country in a very rich continent, often seriously calls into question the criteria used in the Mid-sea continent by the Journalist Tea Party to recognize television stations in Mid-sea Continent.
A modifier in the middle of a long noun!!

D. That the 1996 Mid-sea Continent Journalist Tea Party Award winner's reporting of favorable news depends hugely and undeniably on Xanadu government's donating huge and often scandalous sums of money to the Audio-vision council of South-eastern Xanadu, a very rich country in a very rich continent, calls into question the criteria used in the continent by Mid-sea Journalist Tea Party at recognizing television stations in Mid-sea continent.

E. That the 1996 Mid-sea Continent Journalist Tea Party Award winner's reporting of remarkable and favorable news depends hugely and undeniably on Xanadu government's donating huge and often scandalous sums of money to the Audio-vision Council of South-eastern Xanadu, a very rich country in a very rich continent, seriously calls into question the professional criteria that are used in the continent by the aforementioned Mid-sea Journalist Tea Party to recognize television stations in Mid-sea continent.
Concise and clear.
Although E has additional information, such as remarkable, it is still the best among 5.

Thanks.

Dont look at the OA. IF you get this question in less than 3 minutes, then you can get anything.


Just read each option keenly, you will be able to throw out first four just because of meaning.Automatically, you can select E!!!

The very long sentence makes this question daunting but it can be answered if we look at it very carefully and try to separate the necessary information from the unnecessary. Lets look at option A. If we remove the information within the commas, we will find that ‘reporting favorable news’ is modifying “tea party award winner”. This is not correct, as it implies that there is a particular kind of “1996 Mid-sea sea Continent Journalist Tea Party Award winner. If we examine C, we will find that “Xanam television station” is referring to a possessive noun, “winner’s”. This is not acceptable on the GMAT. In D, “criteria used…at” is not idiomatic, it should be “criteria used for”. B has two verbs in the main clause so it should be taken out too.



Thus, E is the correct answer.

Hi,

Can you clarify my confusion, I think-
X's = something of X
Xanadu govt.'s = something of Xanadu govt.
Y donating = those Y who donate
hence, Xanadu govt.'s donating = Those something of Xanadu govt. who donate.
Its very confusing sorry,
Teacher: Student's dad donating for good reasons are seen to be very gentle while dealing with their kids.
= Those particular dads of our students who donate money are so and so.
Somewhere I am going wrong, please if someone can help me out.

Thanks
