Hey guys,

One thing I do not catch is the subject. Either "the report" or "the hospital" is singular. right?

I see it this way:

the report recommended that the hospital eliminates, consolidates, and uses....

any site to check subjunctive problems?

thanks

The report recommended that the hospital should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals.

A) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals – subjunctive recommend does not need should
B) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and other hospitals' space be used – subjunctive recommend does not need should
C) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and to use space in other other hospitals – subjunctive recommend does not need should ; parallelism issue
D) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and other hospitals' space used – Parallelism issue
E) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and use space in other hospitals – Correct

Answer E

I did pick E. But in whatever questions I have seen, SC options also tries to focus on logic - which seems a little off here. I mean can 'the (specific) hospital use beds of the 'other hospital'? "The report recommended that the hospital should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals"

I felt that E should have ended with 'use other space in the hospital'. Just a doubt :/

The report recommended that the hospital should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals.

A) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals
B) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and other hospitals' space be used
C) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and to use space in other other hospitals
D) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and other hospitals' space used
E) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and use space in other hospitals

As there is a word "recommended" the use of the word "should" is redundant. Hence, A, B, C are out

D - "space used" is incorrect

E - Correct - Maintains Parallelism

The report recommended that the hospital should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals.

A) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and use space in other hospitals
B) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and other hospitals' space be used
C) should eliminate unneeded beds, expensive services should be consolidated, and to use space in other other hospitals
D) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and other hospitals' space used
E) eliminate unneeded beds, consolidate expensive services, and use space in other hospitals

(A), (B) & (C) are complete mess, not parallel.

(D) ,and "other hospital's space used" is not parallel to the previous two clauses

(E) shows correct parallelism.
