(A) have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support
(B) are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor
(C) have consistently received the unqualified support of labor
(D) receive consistent and unqualified support by labor
(E) are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor



This question could be solved easily by using the intended meaning of the sentence on the first place,below:

The three women, liberal activists who strongly support legislation in favor of civil rights and environmental protection, have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support.

(A) have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support .........>unqualifying=not meeting some sort of standard for qualification.This is not the intended meaning
(B) are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor .......>Changed the time-frame to very short-term by using present continuous(Started almost recently) here
(C) have consistently received the unqualified support of labor ............>unqualified =without any sort of restriction or reservation,or simply not qualified,Correct
(D) receive consistent and unqualified support by labor ........>present -"universal truth" kind of sentence.No specific time frame
(E) are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor .......>Incorrect as answer Choice B

Correct Answer C

The three women, liberal activists who strongly support legislation in favor of civil rights and environmental protection, have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support.

(A) have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support
(B) are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor
(C) have consistently received the unqualified support of labor
(D) receive consistent and unqualified support by labor
(E) are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor


You can be supported by labor. but You can't receive support by labor - it should be support of labor. or support from labor : D & E out.

Unqualifying vs unqualified :
Unqualifying : Means not matching the standard
unqualified : Unconditional so A,B out

Is that 'consistently' and 'are receiving' can appear together because of redundancy?

not easy, tricky

I think this tests an idiom which is strange

normally , in the pattern noun+of+ noun , the second noun is subject or object of the first noun
for example " the test of pronoun".

but the word "support" is special. its idiom is " in support of something" or " support for something" . in these idiom, something is object of support. and in "support of something", something is agent/subject of support.

a basic pattern happen in english is "noun+preposition+noun 2". in this pattern, we should know the noun 2 is subject or object of the first noun. this is meaning problem which gmat alway want to test.

A - Out, " 's possessive" is used in SWE with human being, animals and any other living being.
B - Verb-form is correct, but there is a wrong use of modifier (-ing VS pas participle)
C - CORRECT
D - Change meaning issue
E - Change meaning issue

Unqualifying = The opposite of qualifying.

Qualifying = training, serving to make fit or competent; limiting, restricting; attributing particular characteristics or qualities; moderating, modifying.

One definition of to qualify is "to limit".
In the SC above, to have "unqualified support" means to have "unlimited support".

In A and B, "unqualifying support" means that the support is not limiting something else. The intended meaning of the sentence is that the activists have the "unqualified support" (meaning the unlimited support) of labor. Eliminate A and B.

In D and E, "by labor" is not the correct idiom. X is "supported by" Y, but X receives the "support of" Y. Eliminate D and E.
The correct answer is C.
Unqualified = Giving support without any reservation/condition.
==> A and B are out.
D and E do not convey the meaning consistent with "consistently".
Answer is C.

A. have consistently received labor’s unqualifying support
B. are consistently receiving the unqualifying support of labor
C. have consistently received the unqualified support of labor
D. receive consistent and unqualified support by labor
E. are receiving consistent and unqualified support by labor


I think the answer should be A. "have consistently received" is present perfect which indicates three women received labor's support in the past and they continue to do so even now.

B doesnt seem correct... there is no need for present participle here. This choice makes it sound like three women are receiving support right at this moment.

C is again present participle. But "received the unqualified support of labor" is passive. A is in active voice, hence my choice over C.



Your reasoning for A is partially correct. You are right to go for that reason, but that is not only the point. You need to decide what fits better in C and A. Unqualified in C is not a verb, but a modifier and is correctly used.

Now think, what`s better? the support is unqualified or the support is unqualifying? Clearly the former!
