"This" is a demonstrative noun and can't refer back to the entire clause mentioned. Secondly, "that" is missing in "namely they vary considerably" which is important to refer back to "features".

Hey guys,

"It" in C and D is a pronoun without an antecedent (there isn't a clear prior noun to take its place), so they're incorrect.



'It' is fine in D. Isn't it?

The fact of some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably on a spectrum of genetic relatedness.


Meaning Analysis : (breaking it into different parts)
1. The fact highlights something ( Something - they vary considerably on a spectrum of genetic relatedness)
2. whatever fact highlighted is both interesting and Often Overlooked.
3. The fact is "some fraternal twins resembling each other (fraternal twins) greatly and others looking quite dissimilar"

Error Analysis :
1. SV agreement - Subject (The fact) and verb (highlights) both are matching in number. We dont have any dual subject - single verb or Single verb dual subject error. - Correct
2. Modifier - "Namely .... " modifies "feature of fraternal-twin pairs" - Logically correct meaning - Correct
3. Construction "resembling and Looking" - we know that Fact has to be present in simple present and anything other than Simple present (for presenting fact, universal truth) is wrong in GMAT - Incorrect
4. Idiom error - "The fact of" is not correct, it should be "fact that" - "that" modifies the fact. In The "fact of" "Of" is preposition and needs noun say "Facts of Gmat"


A. The fact of some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably
Incorrect - Reasons discussed above.

B. That some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly while others look quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely that they vary considerably
Subject is silent "That .... Dissimilar" acting as subject and match perfectly with singular verb "Highlights"
"Resemble and look" correctly present Facts in simple present tense.
No error But looks awkward. So lets see if we can find any better option.


C. With some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar, it highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely considerable variation
Pronoun error - "it" does not have any clear antecedent.
the phrase "With some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar" -- what it is trying to Modify. It is just there in sentence does not seems to have any impact on anything - Incorrect

D. With some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar, it is a fact that highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely a considerable variation
Incorrect - Similar error as option C

E. Because some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly and others look quite dissimilar, this fact highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably
"this" - What this is referring to.
Illogical meaning "Because of some facts" this fact highlights
Incorrect.

Since we other options have some or other string errors, Option B even though awkward but stands correct.

we have 2 pattern
the fact+noun
the fact+ that+ clause.
in english grammar. depending on meaning, one of them is used. sometimes, both are used

the fact that she come here shows that she loves him.

the fact of her love is known to all.

both above sentence are correct because both the sentences are grammatical and logic.

but we have a meaning problem in the following sentence.

the fact the the twins. the fact of him.

both above sentences are not logic.
the fact of his love
is logic
but
the fact of him
is not logic

this point is simple but critically important in gmat SC. this is main point in this sc problem.

Choice E is rather colloquial. ‘This’ as a demonstrative pronoun could be relevant in informal conversations with someone when we can physically point out to something visible. In formal writing, it is rare to find it as a correct usage.

Hi Egmat.

Below are my doubts:

What is this structure 'namely they … and how is it connected to the independent previous clause.
Are there any errors in C and D other than the usage of 'It' and change in meaning?
What's wrong with E

Hi Nishat,

Thanks for posting your doubt here. :-)

The expression namely is an adverb that modifies the action in the previous independent clause. It gives more description as to what is highlighted.

No, there are not.

Choice E is incorrect because of it structure. The correct structure should be because A happens, B happens. We cannot say Because A happens, this fact does something. That's incorrect structure.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.
Shraddha

Hi all,
It would be a pleasure if anyone could help me with my doubt.
Even though I could reach out the correct choice using POE,I doubt the construction of "namely that..."
IMO,the meaning seems to explain further about interesting and overlook feature.

How does this part correctly refer to the "feature" ?

Hi @E-gmat experts,

Structure in option E is

Because <clause>, <Clause>,<clause>.

can we say this structure is wrong?

I have seen many E-gmat videos where you have shown we can not use two independent clauses just using comma(,). we have to use connector (FANBOYS) or semicolon(;)

Please clarify this.

Thanks

"namely" is used to say more of a noun. in short, we have a pattern

noun+namely+noun

only this point permits us to eliminate choice A and E in which a clause can not be a noun. "that+clause" can be used as a noun as in choice B.

The fact of some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably on a spectrum of genetic relatedness.

A. The fact of some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably --> The Fact That is the correct Usage. There are two contrasting things " Resembling and Dissimilar". So, we should have a contrasting conjunction between the two.

B. That some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly while others look quite dissimilar highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely that they vary considerably. --> Correct Choice. Clearly conveys the contrast and provides the opinion as a fact. Something like the Fact that(Notice we can omit the fact here.)

C. With some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar, it highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely considerable variation. --> With Some fraternal .. is what? It is called a dangling modifier. It is not modifying anything. + No contrast made as in choice A. Hence, incorrect.

D. With some fraternal twins resembling each other greatly and others looking quite dissimilar, it is a fact that highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely a considerable variation.--> Same as C above.

E. Because some fraternal twins resemble each other greatly and others look quite dissimilar, this fact highlights an interesting and often overlooked feature of fraternal-twin pairs, namely they vary considerably --> Change in Meaning. The fact is highlighting something because twins are similar or dissimilar. Incorrect.

Though you have made a very good effort in analyzing and thanks for that,but option A can't be wrong just because it doesn't have a contrasting word.It is wrong because of the incorrect usage of "fact of".But the construction fact of+twin resembling is wrong.

the phrase after comma is 'appositive phrase' which explains the interesting and overlooked feature. Appositive phrases modifies preceding noun. To determine it is appositive phrase , you have to understand the meaning of the sentence :)

Well,this is interesting.But I don't thing "they vary considerably" is a phrase.
In my two cents,it is more like a clause with "they" as a subject and "vary" as a verb.
