[quote="tia2112"]Those who fault the intrusion of amateurs into areas requiring serious scholarship often cite as an example Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had been hoping to unearth when deploying fifteen sticks of dynamite in the substratum containing relics of ancient Troy.



A) as an example Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had been hoping to unearth when deploying ------- had been hoping.. unnecessary use of past perfect continuous tense ----- Also, "cite" and "as an example" --- Redundancy

B) Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he hoped to unearth when he deployed
PERFECT :) CORRECT!

C) Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman, whose obsession for antiquity unwittingly destroyed to a great degree artifacts he hoped to unearth, deploying
----- suggests that obsession destroyed the artifacts.. INCORRECT
D) Heinrich Schliemann as an example, a wealthy German businessman who had an obsession with antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he hoped to unearth, and who deployed ------ who unwittingly destroyed...., and who deployed... destroyed and deployed are not logically parallel. Deployment tells how he destroyed...
Also, "cite" and "as an example" --- Redundancy
Thus, INCORRECT

E) Heinrich Schliemann, who as a wealthy German businessman had an obsession with antiquity; he unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had hoped to unearth when he had been deploying ---- suggests that he had an obsession with antiquity because he was wealthy. Also "had been deploying .." is also not very appropriate (past perfect continuous) as per the meaning of the sentence.

Kudos kudos kudos... for answering a difficult question :lol:

Questions about the choice E.

Since I see another version of this question, and choice E states like this...

E. Heinrich Schliemann, who as a wealthy German businessman had an obsession with antiquity; he unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he hoped to unearth when he deployed

......and it's still incorrect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another question is how are *cite* and *as an example* redundant? I feel it quite natural to read "cite XXX as an example".... :roll:

Can someone please shed some light? :(

Thanks thanks thanks .....

I think problem with ur version is :
Obsession with is not correct idiom ---obsession for is correct ..
It changes the meaning also "as a wealthy German businessman had an obsession with antiquity" but original does not have relation between wealth and his obsession .

sobby,

I could not find 'obsession for' as an idiom. Can you shed some light on your statement? Here is a list from beat the GMAT: http://www.beatthegmat.com/comprehensiv ... 39752.html
Obsession is not on there, moreover, I believe the meaning depends wholly on the context. For example: I am obsessed with the Patriots. vs. I am obsessed for the Patriots. Both have different meanings.

Those who fault the intrusion of amateurs into areas requiring serious scholarship often cite as an example Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had been hoping to unearth, deploying fifteen sticks of dynamite in the substratum containing relics of ancient Troy.

A) as an example Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had been hoping to unearth, deploying - WRONG - cite , as an example - redundant

B) Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman with an obsession for antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he hoped to unearth when he deployed - CORRECT

C) Heinrich Schliemann, a wealthy German businessman, whose obsession for antiquity unwittingly destroyed to a great degree artifacts he hoped to unearth, deploying - WRONG - change in meaning - as if obsession destroyed

D) Heinrich Schliemann as an example, a wealthy German businessman who had an obsession with antiquity, who unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he hoped to unearth, and who deployed - WRONG - same error as A, - cite , as an example - redundant

E) Heinrich Schliemann, who as a wealthy German businessman had an obsession with antiquity; he unwittingly destroyed the very artifacts he had hoped to unearth when he had been deploying - WRONG - missing verb in first independent clause, which is not even an sentence.
