OA after three opinions Hi... The parallel items require AND, so ONLY B and D are left.. It is persistent misbehaviour and not misbehaviour that is persistent OnlyD left D..

OA after three opinions Hi... The parallel items require AND, so ONLY B and D are left.. It is persistent misbehaviour and not misbehaviour that is persistent OnlyD left D.. Hello chetan2u, I wanted to understand whether 'persistent' before 'student misbehavior' acts as adjective particularly for 'students'. Wouldn't have it been more meaningful if the option had read  'persistent student's misbehavior' ?  (this is for my understanding only) Also, I agree that B is awkward but isn't the 'that is persistent' correctly modifying misbehavior, as the misbehavior is what is persistent? Thanks in advance for your insights.

Thanks in advance for your insights. hi.. student misbehavior is OK as it is, you dont require to put in possessive form as the term is being used in general. Quote: B is awkward but isn't the 'that is persistent' correctly modifying misbehavior, as the misbehavior is what is persistent yes it is student misbehavior that is persistent.. but by using RELATIVE pronoun you are modifying misbehavior... Here it would mean there are different types of misbehavior and we are talking of the ONE that is persistent.. this is NOT what is meant here take an example  I have a car that is red in colour. so here I am restricting the car by mentioning colour. there are various colours and i am talking of red.

Thanks in advance for your insights. Hi, in option D does not persistent modifying students instead of misbehavior. Also, persistent student's misbehavior makes more sense to me. Had the option been persistent misbehavior of students, this also makes sense. Kindly help me in understanding.

ans is NO... by writing PERSISTENT student misbehavior, persistent modifies "student misbehavior" correctly.. if you write persistent STUDENT's misbehavior, you are making persistent modify student.. persistent means something carrying on uninterrupted, so it has to modify student misbehavior

The structure here is: as a result of x, y and z. ‘As well as’ is not as efficient as ‘and’. Eliminate A and E. C is not parallel. D is shorter and more efficient than B. Choice D is the correct answer.
