The baseball All-Star Game is a proper name specific to baseball. The 'baseball" is not separable from the "All- Star Game" if you intend to allude to baseball. We may see that basketball has an All-Star Game and hockey has an All - Star Game event in the US. That is why I doubt whether D can be taken as a legitimate answer. Maybe it passable but not above-board.

Why would one argue against A, which seems to be more forthright?

daagh because American publications wouldn't use that phrase: "the baseball All-Star Game."
It would be "Major League Baseball's . . . "
Or "MLB's . . . "
Or "The All-Star Game, baseball's annual . . . "
Or answer D.

IMO D.

The All star game and The baseball all star game both seems ok, but the later part i think should be more meaningful i.e. what does it signals?
A - Signals middle of the season.
D - Signals middle of the baseball season.

D looks more promising..

I quickly narrowed it down to A and D. I guess I'll go with D.

Since the confusion is between A and D, I would like to put my thoughts here.

Although both looks good, D is preferred as it clarifies what kind of season are we talking about. It says in the middle of baseball season, meaning almost 50% of that baseball playing duration.

A) The baseball All-Star Game signals the middle of the season

B) With double significance, the All-Star Game occurs mid-way through

C) The baseball season is divided in half by the All-Star Game

D) The All-Star Game signals the middle of the baseball season

E) With the All-Star Game, half the season is over



I support A to be the correct answer D cannot be choosen just because of compactness because what if someone is not aware of baseball and its leagues and respective structure,
In plain grammer A is perfect and no reason to doubt it.

I believe D also clarifies that "All-Star Game" has some link to Baseball plus D also specifies the season we are talking about.

Although A also clarifies that "All-Star Game" has some link to Baseball, it does not tell us which season we are talking about. Is it the middle of Winters or summers or something else. Hence, A has this flaw. Thus D is correct.

I think the answer for this question is ambiguous. I chose A but I also found D a good answer.
The question needs to be modified.

The baseball All-Star Game signals the middle of the season and reminds the losing teams that the time for them to improve their playing is running out.

A) The baseball All-Star Game signals the middle of the season middle of what season? spring, winter, summer? It is not clear what season is being talked about here.

B) With double significance, the All-Star Game occurs mid-way through Convoluted, and distors the meaning

C) The baseball season is divided in half by the All-Star Game the season isn't the one reminding the losing teams

D) The All-Star Game signals the middle of the baseball season Correctly identifies that the Game signifies the middle of the baseball season (no ambiguity like in option A), and reminds teams.

E) With the All-Star Game, half the season is over Again, season isn't the one reminding teams.
