I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation.

Quote:
Correct. This choice uses the construction “X rather than Y” to correctly compare the parallel active verbs “accept” and “went.” The uncertainty about acheiving a state of enlightenment is correctly indicated by the word “whether.”


Apologies for being late for the discussion.

I am not convinced with the OE as it doesn't mention about the modifier in the end. My understanding is that the phrase "having been sent by his inner instincts" is a noun modifier that modifies Buddha. I believe that a noun modifier must be placed right next to the noun it modifies. If so, how can this construction be correct?

Kindly shed light on this GMATNinja @e-GMAT VeritasKarishma

Thanks in advance.

I think this is a high-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate. I am sorry but I have to ask :
Parallelism implies same verb tense, correct ?
went = past simple
accept = present perfect

Am I wrong ?


I am confused by this as well. Could someone explain this, please?

Dear daagh:
In the following post,
https://gmatclub.com/forum/machines-pow ... 25294.html
the explanation for choosing "instead" over "rather" is as follows:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/machines-powered-by-hydraulics-are-not-driven-by-the-steam-125294.html

Here, isn't Lord Buddha walking the path towards awareness "in place of" accepting the throne?

Please clarify!
