in E that is quantified is causing shift in meaning.


SUCH A CONFUSING ONE..BOTH D AND E LOOK CORRECT IN THEIR OWN WAYS...SUMONE PLEASE PROVIDE THE OA.. :shock:


The OA is E.
As long as the meaning is unchanged, the phrase with fewer words is preferable.

I am confused. I think it is E but since the subject is singular should overlook not be overlooks

No, the subject is plural, because the subject is "critics".
Eliminating the middle man:
(Uninformed about students´experience in urban classrooms), critics often condemn schools performance as gauged by (an index), such as ...(Noun) and overlook (noun), such as that ....
Here is very clear that the ones making the action, the subjects, are the the critics, which are the ones that condemn and overlook the measurable progress.

Hi

The following question's answer is still under doubt. :idea:

Please explain b/w D & E. :?:

I think D because original question stem says "that can be quantified" and E say "that is quantified"..!!!!

Please explain :!: :!:

Uninformed about students’ experience in urban classrooms, critics often condemn schools’ performance as gauged by an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that in higher-level reasoning.

A: an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that
B: an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
C: an index, such as standardized test scores, that is called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
D: a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made
E: a so-called objective index, such as standardized test scores, that is quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as that

Sorry to open this thread again, maybe some issue with my understanding of this problem:

As "index" is singular subject, how can we use plural verb -"overlook" with a singular subject? By that logic none of the answer is correct

Thanks in advance!!

Actually if we look at the sentence in significant detail, the structure of this sentence is:

Critics condemn and overlook.

So, it is not "index" but "critics" who "overlook".

Hi,

Need expert opinion on this. I think E is the correct answer here because it clearly conveys the idea. But E is still changing the meaning of the original sentence. Should we accept this as the answer despite the meaning is changed?

To answer your Question, B is incorrect because it tries to convey the meaning that test scores are called objective while as per the meaning of the sentence, it should be the index which is called an objective.

an index, such as standardized test scores, that are called objective and can be quantified and overlook less measurable progress, such as what is made

Thanks

It has not been mentioned in any official guideline that the correct answer must retain the meaning of the original sentence. If there is only one grammatically correct choice, it must be selected even when it deviates in meaning from the original.However if there are two grammatically correct sentences, select the one that agrees with the intended meaning of the original sentence.
