Had to decide between D and E.

I think E has modifier problem. Left with D. :wink:

Either D or E, originally went for E, sounded right. But looking at what is being modified D is correct

I would go with 'A'.

Doesn't D have a redundancy (introduce) by saying "Presenting a comprehensive introduction, the physicist Richard Feynman introduced modern physics " ?

E definitely has subject modifier problem.

Yeah D seems to indicate that he introduced modern physics in the curriculum.

To me A just sounds better than E, but I am not able to pin point the exact problem with E. Why exactly is E wrong?

E seems to suggest that Fenyman was designed in a two year course :-)

Hmm, I would still go with E. How is this a subject modifier problem?

E In a two-year course designed for undergraduate students, the physicist Richard Feynman presented a comprehensive introduction to modern physics.

It's not like it says, "Having designed a two-year course designed for undergraduate students"

Just getting started on verbal, any clarifications would be nice.

OA E...

Here is the OE :?: :roll:

The clarity of this sentence depends on the correct placement of the prepositional phrase “in a two-year course designed for undergraduate students.â€

E is better than A.

A would mean the modern physics is in the 2 year course, while the in the 2 year course is modifying his teaching action.

The OA is E. And this is not a manhattan question. The problem with D is that it separates an idea "a comprehensive introduction to modern physics in a two-year course".

Kudos if you like the question

Dear sagarag,

My friend, please do not post a brand new thread for a question that has already been posted on GC. Always search GC for the question before you start a new thread. I merged your question into a pre-existent thread about the exact same question. If you have any questions about this SC problem, you may find them on this thread; if not, please feel free to ask me anything.

Mike :-)

A) The physicist Richard Feynman presented a comprehensive introduction to modern physics designed for undergraduate students in a two-year course.
Is "modern physics" designed for "undergraduate students"? No. "modern physics" is universal not just for them.

B) For undergraduate students, the physicist Richard Feynman presented a two-year course, being a comprehensive introduction to modern physics.
1) "being...physics" seems to modify "the physicist"!
2) "the physicist..presented a two year course" TO "undergraduate students" not "FOR undergraduate students"

C) A comprehensive introduction was in a two-year course by the physicist Richard Feynman presenting to undergraduate students an introduction to modern physics.
How can a "A comprehensive introduction" be in "two year course". Students can be in "two year course" or some body can be in a course, not an "introduction".

D) Presenting a comprehensive introduction, the physicist Richard Feynman introduced modern physics in a two-year course designed for undergraduate students.
"1) Presenting..introduction, ...introduced". How many times do you want to "introduce"? Thus this sentence has a redundant usage.
2) Second half "the physicist...students" is perfectly correct.

E) In a two-year course designed for undergraduate students, the physicist Richard Feynman presented a comprehensive introduction to modern physics.
"In a two-year...students" is NOT a noun modifier. Please note that GMAT does NOT only test noun modifier. There are adverbial modifiers too!
So ask the question, WHERE did the action of "the physicist presented"? happen
Answer: "In a two year....students".


P.S.: Adverbial modifiers do not touch the verb they modify (in this case: "presented") and thus their placement does NOT follow the "touch rule" (sacred for noun modifiers"). This is acceptable.
