I'm sorry, I meant I'm skeptical about C because there's some redundancy in it...

I understood that payments should be plural, so it doesn't fit. sorry, it was a typo...

When you negate the simple present tense sentences, you don't use verb with "s".

For example
Positive: Jack eats ice-cream every day.
Negative: Jack doesn’t eat ice-cream every day.

Likewise,
Positive: The bank holds $3 billion in loans that are seriously delinquent or in such trouble that it expects payments to be made when they are due


Negative: The bank holds $3 billion in loans that are seriously delinquent or in such trouble that it (bank) does not expect payments to be made when they (payments) are due.

Does that answer your question?

Press Kudos if it does ;)

Hi, I read in the OG that "will be" is not the correct tense here. Can someone explain why it is the wrong tense here? Would "would" be correct here?

I went for E and found that it is wrong.
Please help. How can I eliminate option E?

Hi jackspire, E says:

payments are not expected to be paid when they will be due.

The issue with this is that E is passive voice. Here, it is not clear as to who is not expected to make payments.

The original sentence clearly intends to depict that the bank is not expected to make payments. That meaning is not coming out in E.

Concealing the doer of the action is often a big problem with passive voice constructs.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Passive voice, its application and examples in significant detail. If someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.
