A. it frequently appears in pop psychology as a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity

B. it frequently appears in pop psychology like a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity

C. it frequently appears in pop psychology, meaning persons of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity

How to eliminate incorrect choices here?


A term cannot be a person. Therefore A, B and D can be eliminated.

"Empath" is singular - thus "a person" is more appropriate than "persons". Hence C can be eliminated.

Though the term “empath” is not considered a formal designation of clinical psychiatry, it frequently appears in pop psychology as a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity.

I think this question is a good example of a grammatically correct sentence, but it is incorrect because of the intended meaning.

As stated by sayantanc2k the term "empath" cannot be a person or cannot appears as a person. So, "the term "empath" appears " should be followed by a "to verb" to refer to a person with some characteristics.

A. it frequently appears in pop psychology as a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity. Incorrect as stated above.

E. it frequently appears in pop psychology to denote a person of unusual tact, compassion, and emotional sensitivity. Correct!

as per option E: "empath" appears in psychology "to denote".

to verbs are used to show intentions. is it okay to say that "empath"( a term with no intentions) appears in psychology text with an intention to denote a person a person etc?
EMPOWERgmatVerbal please can you clarify this doubt

Hello sampriya!

The phrase "to denote" here is an infinitive, which is NOT a verb! It is being used as an adverb to explain WHY the term "empath" appears in psychology. Make sure to go over infinitives again to ensure you're not confusing them with verbs or other parts of speech. They're tricky!

I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to tag me at EMPOWERgmatVerbal!
