Here is one example of real OG question that in a way tests our understanding of articles.

So the earlier claim that "GMAT doesn't test articles" is not valid anymore.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I agree with explanation. I just think it's a poor quality question because we don't know what the sentence intends to emphasize: the emperor or Germany. From studying OG questions, I felt that the GMAC puts great amount of emphasis on the main idea of the sentence. I chose A because I felt that the recognition of the emperor was more important though it is in passive form. Anyway, just my opinion. Maybe you can modify this question in a way that it clearly expresses the main idea of the sentence.


A is wrong not because it conveys a wrong meaning,but because it conveys two different meanings and hence is ambiguous:
The recognition happened in 1871.
The recognition was valid for only 1871.

The problems with the other options are as below:

B. Wrong position of dependent clause modifier "when Germany...."- should ideally touch "1871".

C. Problematic meaning: This option conveys that Wilhelm was already an emperor when the treaty recognized him. It is not clear the treaty recognized him as what.

E. Wrong position of dependent clause modifier "when Germany...."- should ideally touch "1871".


I think gmat questions in SC wont have such trivial submeaning. Thus, I think this question is unlikely to be one of official questions.

Options A,B have a different meaning compared to Options C,D and E. I don't think this would happen in the actual GMAT, I have eliminated Options C,D and E saying they have different meaning compared to original underlined part.

Options C, D and E should start with When Germany....

Overall, I would say this question is sub-standard.

I have a doubt between A and D, doesn't D change the meaning such that it implies that Germany became a single unified state in 1871 because of the virtue of Wilhelm becoming the Emperor, which is not the intended meaning of option A.
