Dear egmat mikemcgarry

I have a doubt.
Here exhibited is in the past tense and comes is in the present tense. Does it make sense to have past and present in the same sentence, I am unable to understand it



Hello teaserbae,

Thank you for your query. :-)

In this official sentence, exhibited is not a verb because it is not an action done by the subject The type of behavior.

The word exhibited is a verb-ed modifier that modifies The type of behavior because the said behavior gets exhibited.

Please review our popular article to learn how to distinguish between a simple past tense verb and a verb-ed modifier in the following link:

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

look at choice D and B
choice D means
in the best way, it is studied as....
this is correct meaning
choice b means

it is best so that it is studied as...
this book is best so that this book is studied as part of the program
this meaning is absurd, and no-sense.
so, choice B is gone

I selected C incorrectly incorrectly as I initially thought we need a pronoun to make the two clauses SV-SV. Here are my learnings:

When there are 2 independent clauses:
- we can join them together by a conjunction (FANBOYS) or semicolon. Here, a conjunction has been used.
- duplicating a conjunction, as in (b) and (E) with "and so" is considered redundant

Idioms
Correct Idiom: Thus is best/ Thus it is best
Incorrect Idiom: it is best to be
