imo ans C

best way to logically say that universities can have their own rights, but(contrast) these universities cannot contest.

I suggest you to deep dive into meaning of every single option. When you cant find the split, meaning is your best friend.

A. even with members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams would not be allowed to play

B. if they have membership in the NCAA and these universities' teams that are not allowed to play

C. if they are members of the NCAA, but the universities' teams that do so are not allowed to play

E. though members of the NCAA, but these universities' teams cannot be allowed to play



Only A and D makes sense to me.

B and C seems wrong for using "they".

In E, "though" is awkward. "as" might be good.

D seems perfect but I don't know "negotiate as" is correct.

In A, we have "negotiate with" and this looks perfect, but latter part is wordy.

I will go with D.

Interesting !

I am stuck between A and D.
Somehow I feel that D doesn't convey the intended meaning. I will have to go with A.
Awaiting OA.

Only A and D make sense. Others do not make sense.
To differentiate between A and D is very difficult. I marked A, but then realized that in A, since ruled is a command verb, the use of do should be prefered in place of would.

so its like ruled that ... bare form of the verb to do.

Not sure.

First thing that is confusing is NCAA members. notice this term "non-NCAA teams" it goes for a university not a person for sure.

intended meaning - universities can negotiate their own television rights. even if they are members of NCAA. if so, they will follow the given condition.

A. even with members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams would not be allowed to play ---- this is saying they can discuss to members of NCAA and then follow the condition. very absurd.

B. if they have membership in the NCAA and these universities' teams that are not allowed to play ---- this one is better in sense "if they have membership." but after 'and' parallel structure should form.

C. if they are members of the NCAA, but the universities' teams that do so are not allowed to play --- if ... but ? if and but works together in phrase 'but only if'

D. as members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams do not play ----- expressed intended meaning.

E. though members of the NCAA, but these universities' teams cannot be allowed to play --- use of but. we we really need to change the meaning ?

The Supreme Court has ruled that universities can negotiate their own television rights even with members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams would not be allowed to play against non-NCAA teams.


A. even with members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams would not be allowed to play

B. if they have membership in the NCAA and these universities' teams that are not allowed to play

C. if they are members of the NCAA, but the universities' teams that do so are not allowed to play

D. as members of the NCAA, so long as these universities' teams do not play

E. though members of the NCAA, but these universities' teams cannot be allowed to play

Here's what wrong with C.

First it is saying that the universities are negotiating with the NCAA - great.
Then it makes the error of referring to the teams that "do so". The teams are not negotiating -- the universities are. Helps?

Is meaning not changing in option D.

As per A...Universities can negotiate with NCAA.
But as per D, Universities can negotiate as members of NCAA.
