The particular design (subject) [strike]of muscles and bones in the neck and limbs of the turtle[/strike] ("of" acts like a middleman, which is placed to split the subject and the verb apart to introduce the subject verb disagreement error as done here) allow (verb should be plural i.e. allows)
that it can draw in its exposed parts such that an attacker can find nothing
but hard shell to bite.
A. allow that it can draw in its exposed parts such that
B. allow it to draw in its exposed parts, and so
C. allows for it to draw in its exposed parts and that
D. allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so
E allows (the verb agrees with the subject) it to draw in its exposed parts, so that

I'll go with E

Don't know mate, it just doesn't sound right with the actual meaning of the sentence...

What's the OA?

Are you sure? This doesn't sound believable. What's the source?

E for me as welll.

D seems strange.

is not allow to is the correct idiom? Design is singular.

needs 'allows' and a 'to'

@rohansherry

D) allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so

In D
1. There is not verb in the caluse introduced by "that"
2. "That" should come after "so" to introduce the clause

I agree - D is definitely NOT the ans. It is losing parallelism also.

allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so

It should atleast follow allows X(that clause), and Y(THAT clause)

My take is also E.

IMO E

In D 'and' and 'so' both are coordinating conjunctions and the sentence lacks parallelism.

E for me too

A and B are out because of subject-verb disagreement

"allows it to ..." is the best

+1 E

"allow to" is the right verb.
"design" is singular.

The particular design of muscles and bones in the neck and limbs of the turtle allow
that it can draw in its exposed parts
such that an attacker can find nothing
but hard shell to bite.
A. allow that it can draw in its exposed parts such that
B. allow it to draw in its exposed parts, and so
C. allows for it to draw in its exposed parts and that
D. allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so
E. allows it to draw in its exposed parts, so that

I got the answer E right but my question is use of comma here,

Based on the document (Comprehensive SC) posted in the forum it says below

Independent Clauses are those that can be sentences on their own. For connecting these clauses use one of the following:
a. Semi Colon
b. Comma + Coordinating Conjunction (For, And, Not, But, Or, Yet and So)

Now the second part of the sentence is not independent or maybe I am not getting it right

In this case should the clause be

that an attacker can find nothing but hard shell to bite --- this doesnt look independent.

or

clause should be

an attacker can find nothing but hard shell to bite --- not sure how this is also independent.

Please explain where am I going wrong.

Thanks
