I have a question concerning choice (E):

Many people have a disinclination to recognize the weakness of their analytical skills while willing to admit their lack of computer skills or other technical skills.

The official explanation for why this choice (E) is wrong is as follows:

Have a disinclination is wordy (the verb disinclined is preferred) and, when followed by while willing, creates an incomplete construction

I agree that answer is wrong because it is wordy, but I don't agree that it creates an incomplete construction. I've been scouring through grammar forums and grammar articles. Everything that I've read leads me to believe that this construction is perfectly grammatical.

So, am I wrong or is the Official Explanation wrong?


Hey...
Yes this construction is incomplete because 'while' is a subordinating conjunction and needs a full clause associated...
Which could have been true if it said.."while people are willing to admit.."

Since 'people are' does not appear anywhere else in the sentence, it can not be ellipsed.
That's why it is incomplete.

Let me know if it helped.


Yes this construction is incomplete because 'while' is a subordinating conjunction and needs a full clause associated...--> This is not really true. when two actions have the same actor, we can simplify the second one by using participle.

Can you please explain why E is wrong and I thought D is wrong because of appositive phrase (between commas)
