That was a good one.

obviously A vs B in this one.

I choose B b/c will have vs will has. Just reading it a few times kinda diminishes A. Also I dont particularly like of facilitating at the end of A.

this question tests the correlative not only X but also Y in which X and Y must be parallel

in option A

not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility

meet(X) is bare infinitive to form the future form, whereas has (Y) is the third person singular of the verb to have. As you can see they are not parallel

I am still not convinced with B , "The computer software" is singular shouldn't choice (B) use has instead of have

B but also have/has the versatility and power to facilitate (which one is correct)

any comments ?


Yea I agree... with you. I had the same problem when analyzing this question.

Which sounds right:

The software has
The software have ...

Anyhow- good question otherwise.

Look here is the hint:
The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also [will] have the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.
They are talking about future, so it is the same as He will work (not works) tommorow.

I pick the answer choice "A" based on the grounds that computer software is singular but the source shows different answer can some body throw light on this ?


Software will meet the needs
AND
Software will have the versatility.

In A and B, B is apt. C,D,E miss the required "but also".

Ans: "B"

B for me...
"not only but also" idiom eliminates C,D,E
will not only meet the needs of that study, but [will]also have - so B

I agree that "not only x but also Y", since not only follows Meet(plural) so we go with have(plural),But does it make sense since,Here he is talking about "software" which is singular and how will it agree with "have"?

Can someone please explain?

Thanks in advance

Correct Idiom is "not only .... but also"
--> D& E are out

B) is the only one parallel with WILL not only meet ... but [WILL] also have ...


Hope that helps!

Why we need have? Shouldn't we use has for the singular computer program being used ??? :cry:


The Computer software WILL HAVE ... you don't say WILL HAS regardless whether it is singular or plural.
I will have, you will have, he/she/it will have...

Computer software is singular here.It must agree with has?
Why do we say have?
If it does not sound right,do we have any grammar rule associated with that?

@gamatack-I dont think that the usage should always be computer software have .Its a wrong usage .

Example . The computer software has all the qualities to change the way computing is done in the 21 st century.

Computer software is singular and hence normally the very has agrees with it in number .

But in the example we have at hand ,there is a verb will shich is making the difference .If the answer B is correct it should be because of that only .I am still not very convinced why A is wrong !!

The Computer Software being
designed for a project studying
Native American access to higher
education "will not only meet the
needs of that study,but also has
the versatility and power of
facilitating" similar research
endeavors.
@Gmat0404: You mentioned that A has a comparison error due to using "power of facilating" instead of "power to facilitate"
yes, it's a mistake but not for preposition. Here, we compare some action with other one, nt with prepositiön.
Look at>needs(noun){}that study> of should be used. But, incase of versatility and power { of/to} facilitate/ing should be chosed according to the context.
Bt, you don't need to check every thing.
Just learn the pattern not only..... Bt also.
When we use any verb before "not only", we dont need to repeat it again before but also.
We will+not only...,+(will,implied)+but also....
But when we use any verb after "not only" we need repeat same verb or same form.
So verb used before can be taken as common/intersection and verb after is single should be made as whole.

The subject 'computer software' is singular. While it may be tempting to think that the correct verb is 'has', remember that the verb is in future tense. 'will not only meet...' matches up with 'will not only have.' When speaking in future tense, we employ the plural tense of a verb. Otherwise, the sentence is straightforward: it's the usual idiom business, 'not only...but also.'

Hope that helps!

(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate

So can we say that
- If the subject is third party singlar and sentence is in present perfect tense we use "has"
- If the subject is third party singlar and sentence is in future tense we use "have" ??
- If the subject is third party singlar and sentence is in past perfect tense we use "had"

b. but also have the versatility and power to facilitate
c. but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
d. and but also have the versatility and power of facilitating
e. and it also has the versatility and power that it can facilitate


please explain the answer....:)


Parallelism = not only meet the needs of the study but also [verb + form] => c,e out
Power of facilitating Vs power to facilitate => Power to facilitate is better => a,d out

Hence B
