Pretty much every answer choice can be eliminated for a simple reason: incorrect use of Where(A) figures appear to exist in space on a twodimensional surface, a few artists in the Renaissance art period developed a system of one point perspective, a mathematical system where all edges and forms (B) figures appear to exist in space, a few artists in the Renaissance art period developed a system of one point perspective on a twodimensional surface, a mathematical system where all edges and forms (D) figures appear to exist in space on a twodimensional surface, a few artists in the Renaissance art period developed a system of one point perspective, which is a mathematical system where each edge and form (E) figures on a twodimensional surface appear as if they are existing in space, a system of one point perspective was developed by a few artists in the Renaissance art period, a mathematical system where each edge and form You can also argue that A and E are awkward in their use of prepositional phrases and passive constructions, respectively, but it's very simple to eliminate based on the first split.

Buddy, good that you know some other reason to eliminate the choices but does that mean any other errors are horrendous. Just mentioning some absurd words does not belittle the errors in the choices. If you have found explanation not to your liking, just move on. Are you trying to say the faults I have mentioned are actually not errors.

generis aragonn hazelnut Could you please unban me? I simply disagreed with Chetan (Above  he deleted my post) and he banned me. I need to retrieve my error log from my account  this data is invaluable to me and my exam is within a month, so I cannot afford to wait for the unban, which will happen in a month also.

You can be banned again as you have given yourself kudos. From this account. But the purpose of this forum is to learn and spread knowledge. In that sense, I would request you to be more polite in your posts. As far as other moderators are concerned, I am sure we all respect each other's view, so noone will reverse the decision without taking each other in confidence. You were not merely disagreeing but indulging in avoidable tussle. I would request you to be more constructive in your posts, and concentrate on improving your score, rather than indulging in infructuous posts. I'll try to unban you, as I too understand the value of that to you. Regards

Respectfully, I was quite shocked that you banned me for simply disagreeing, but perhaps I'm more direct than what people are accustomed to, so I'll take your advice and be more conscious about how I deliver my responses.
We're all trying to make it here.
Thanks for the unban.

Thanks for the unban. Sorry, you were not straightforward and don't try to project yourself victim of that, you were unnecessarily trying to make a point where there was none and being discourteous to fellow members. You are at V 2526, so use this forum to improve, rather than getting into unnecessary posts. Not necessarily, what you find ridiculous, others do find and what you find more important may not be same for others. It will be easy for others to understand placement of prepositional phrases , and it is tested more regularly than difference in where and in which. If you know something add it rather than thinking my way is the only way. Leave this here and move on with your preparation in a way it improves you.

This kind of condescending response is disgusting and just makes myself and others not want to participate in the forums. bb please read. The funny thing is I was extremely straight forward  so much in fact that you couldn't palate it and decided to ban me. That's really immature. I told you I would be more mindful in posting and you go ahead and spit what I said back in my face with this childish response.
