Can some one explain this question? And the difference between "that" and "for" for this specific example.


ORIGINAL SENTENCE:
To many critics, it seems strange for Ms. Tramonivic,72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.
STRIKED PART IS A MODIFIER.
now if you read without modifier.:
it seems strange for Ms. Tramonivic to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.
idiom: seems --to is correctly used
this seems to be in passive voice but this sentence is perfectly fine ..agreeing to all gramatical rules.

now lets see the modifier part:
72,the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues
this modifier is a noun modifier modifying the closest noun:Ms. Tramonivic
and WHO correctly refers to ARTIST.
Hence as such there is no error in this option.

lets see other options:

B) that Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, be working on a small off Broadway-dance project.
WRONG.
= seems + infinitive form ==>correct usage
=use of simplest form of verb is awkward here...(BE..)

C) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist that almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, is working on a small off-Broadway dance project.
WRONG.
=UNNECESSARY use of relative clause WHO IS...adds to wordiness
=use of THAT is wrong FOR ARTISTS(WHO is correct usage)
=awkward construction: who is and the legendary print and....
= seems + infinitive form ==>correct usage

D) for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public, to large venues, and to be working on a small off Broadway dance project.
WRONG.
= use of AND makes the second half of sentence a FRAGMENT:to be working on a small off Broadway dance project.
= seems + infinitive form ==>correct usage

E) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.
WRONG.
=SUBJECT Ms. Tramonivi==>THIS LACKS a VERB
=UNNECESSARY use of relative clause WHO IS...adds to wordiness
=awkward construction: who is and the legendary print and....

HENCE A

Hi blueseas, here clearly there is a trade off between the use of that vs for. I thought "it seems strange that.." is better than "it seems strange for". I felt the strange for is implying to Ms T and not to the critics. Pls explain

hi jake,
i am not sure how you are judging "it is strange THAT " better than "it is strange for"...if possible just elaborate more.
more to add...try to remove the modifier part from each option and then read the sentence i think that will make more sense.

IMO, A is changing the meaning of the sentence, implying that the act of "working on a small..." is seeming strange for Ms. Tramonivic and not for the critic.

I think B is the most correct among the given options.

Experts please help.

Correct answer should be A.
Here is my explanation.

To many critics, it seems strange for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.

a.for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project….this choice is perfect….we haven't used "that" so the use of "to be" is correct.

b.that Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, be working on a small off Broadway-dance project…..we need "is" or "are" here. If it were demand or bossy words then we could have used "be" here. example:
Her boss demanded that she be at work on time……here "be" is alright because its demanded and subjunctive case.


c.that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist that almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, is working on a small off-Broadway dance project…..that can't refer to human being. we need "who" here.

d.for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public, to large venues, and to be working on a small off Broadway dance project…..this choice is missing verb.

e.that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project…..this choice is wrong because the modifier phrase is too long and awkward. we don't need two "who" here its unnecessary. Another thing is if we are using "that" after seem we should use "is" or are verb rather than "to be"

Even I marked B but the correct answer is A.

A might be correct because "seems to" is a correct idiom and B "seems" is not followed by B.

Actually, A is correct because: seems strange for X to.... sounds better than seems strange that X be

Hello experts,

A. "seems for" does not state the intended meaning of the sentence. Ms. Tramonivic - the subject has no verb.
B. subject lacks the verb.
C. "that almost singlehandedly" is incorrect usage of "that" for a person.
D. "and to be working on a small off Broadway dance project." - Incorrect.
E. subject lacks the verb.

I cannot figure out the correct answer.I am not sure whether my reasoning is correct or not? I will appreciate your help.


Thanks Anuj!!

To many critics, it seems strange for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.

A) for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and to large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.

B) that Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, be working on a small off Broadway-dance project.

C) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist that almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, is working on a small off-Broadway dance project.

D) for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public, to large venues, and to be working on a small off Broadway dance project.

E) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project.


A) I thought this was correct.
B) that Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues,be working on a small off Broadway-dance project. "that Ms. Tramonivic ... be working" doesn't make sense.
C) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist that almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, is working on a small off-Broadway dance project. "who is" adds to wordiness, although I considered this a close call
D) for Ms. Tramonivic, 72, the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public, to large venues, and to be working on a small off Broadway dance project. Changes the meaning of the sentence and makes it grammatically incorrect
E) that Ms. Tramonivic, who is 72 and the legendary print and visual artist who almost singlehandedly brought performance art to the general public and large venues, to be working on a small off-Broadway dance project. "to be working" makes this sentence incorrect if you ignore the phrases in the middle

My answer is A.

I tried the for vs that and gave up.

Then, I eliminated some choices: Elim E--that Ms. T to be working is grammatically incorrect.
Elim D--brought performances to a, to B and to C--that sentence isn't logically correct as the last part about working on dance projects doesn't belong in the list.
Elim C--her age should be a short FYI and the wording distorts the original meaning.

Between A and B, elim B as that Ms. T be working and "to the general public and large venues" is not as strong and correct as A's for Ms. T to be working and "to the general public and to large venues"

Hey anuj,
according to me B is wrong because it uses Subjunctive Mood here.

using subjunctive mood doesn't go with the meaning. The Meaning of the sentence is too many people critique X for Doing Y.
The structure is something like " too many critics that X ..... be ..... " --- Not Correct. (Meaning changes) There is no demand or that sort of action taking place so it is not correct.

we can use subjunctive Mood when it is an order. "we demand that he be here" --- correct.

I hope your are getting why B is wrong.
:)

Hit kudos if it helps .
