So lets see now, the scoring of tennis should be compared with scoring of other sports, with this respect A, C and D are out.

Now since we are talking about tennis, a singular sport, we will use a singular verb does rather than a do, eliminating B

Answer E

Does like/unlike follow the touch rule? In the case of C, the reason it is wrong is because the comparative phrase beginning with unlike is modifying integers right?

Hi kchen1994,

I guess in the case of option C unlike is modifying scoring in Tennis only,

Right .. it does not ...
I read somewhere that like and unlike is not dependent on touch rule.

Like his father, Ram played with his children.

Both are true and hence I believe both options c and e shall be true

A) unlike many other sports, does not progress numerically by integers, but progresses by fifteen points per play until the final two points of the game; --> "The scoring in tennis" is wrongly compared w/ "many other sports"

B) unlike the scoring in many other sports, do not progress numerically by integers, but progress by fifteen points per play until the final two points of the game; --> "The scoring in tennis" is singular

C) does not progress numerically by integers, unlike the scoring in many other sports, but progresses by fifteen points per play until the final two points of the game; --> "unlike the scoring in many other sports" should be close to the noun, it compares

D) does not progress numerically by integers, unlike many other sports, but progresses by fifteen points per play until the final two points of the game; --> same as C

E) unlike the scoring in many other sports, does not progress numerically by integers, but progresses by fifteen points per play until the final two points of the game; -->correct
