In option D , is what it claims is correct ? How is the OA - D in this question different from incorrect option C(see below) in terms of usage of 2 verbs in a row ?


https://gmatclub.com/forum/researchers- ... 37248.html
In option C , for the below question, I read that C has two verbs in a row, both of which ostensibly have the same subject ("appears was")

option C-->Researchers in Germany have unearthed 400,000-year-old wooden spears from what appears was an ancient lakeshore hunting ground and is stunning evidence that human ancestors systematically hunted big game much earlier than believed


Hi Skywalker18,

While this is an unorthodox construction, "claims is" is correct here. As AjiteshArun explained, it's different than the example you mentioned because "claims" and "was" both have different subjects, so there isn't a problem :-) The subject of "claims" is "the electronics company", but the subject of "was" is "what" (referring to the camcorder). The subject of "was" is not "the electronics company". In the other example you mentioned, both "appears" and "was" have the same subject ("what"), which is what makes it problematic.

Hope that clears things up! :-)
-Carolyn
