Hi All !

Sharing some SCs from a recent mock test (thought that u may or may not get the same q when you take the same mock and that it'd be a good practice for all... ). Please post some explanation with the answers.

IMO, A

formidably gruesome - both the words almost mean the same ( and MBA cant be that horrible )
grueling is the word needed here

P.S Great collection - @gmattokyo

A, due to parallelism. The word "formidably" is designed to throw readers off.

IMO A.

formidably is used as an adverb to modify Challenging while Gruelling is correct in its usage.

A it is.

But what's wrong with C?
Parallelism doesn't require both adj ends with "-ing" riight?
