Re: The matter was referred back to the expert committee since the solutio [#permalink]
I had the same doubt. It is a Career Launcher GMAT Question. Can we not rule out 'refer back' for unnecessary usage of 'back'.

No, "back" is not unnecessary. The usage of the verb "refer back" implies that either the "matter" came from the "expert committee"or was earlier referred to them.

However without "back", the meaning conveyed is that the "matter" was referred to the "expert committee" for the first time.

Both the above usages are correct and hence, as Chetan mentioned above, there is no solid reason to select B over A.

This is a non GMAT Question

The question is from a CAT Book - How to Prepare for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for CAT, 4e By Sharma/Upadhyay , TATA MCGraw Hill
