A. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and that give---"that" is wordy usage.

B. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and give----looks fine to me
C. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government for giving----"for giving" is not parallel

D. which takes the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government to give----"bill is a move which takes the responsibility.....to give it to....." this construction seems not ok to me.

E. taking the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and that give---"that" is not parallel


close one b/w "B" & "D",,, I am going with "B"

The second "to" would be redundant and wordy

"it was a move to take the responsibility from A and give it to B"

"it was a move to take the responsibility from A and TO give it to B"

which sounds better?

the "to" in "to take" is sufficient and the 'to' in "to give" is assumed

What is the OA ?

IMO it should be C although B is close call!

@e-GMAT- can you please confirm.


Hi bagdbmba,

The new bill is a move to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and that give it to state administrations.

A. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and that give
B. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and give
C. to take the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government for giving
D. which takes the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government to give
E. taking the responsibility for welfare allocation from the federal government and that give

Choice C is incorrect because “for giving” is not the correct idiom here. The intent of an action is expressed by “to verb”. So “to give” is the expression we need here.
Also, the original sentence sets the context of the sentence. There is a parallel list in the original sentence. This list is violated in Choice C. There is no list per this choice. These reasons make choice C incorrect.

Hope this helps. :)
Thanks.
Shraddha

I chose B but I'm still not sure
between B and D. D doesn't sound good but I think is correct.
