In computational neuroscience, it is generally accepted that human motor memory contains neural representations of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment, which are known as “internal models”.

A. it is generally accepted that human motor memory contains neural representations of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment, which are known as “internal models”.
B. it is generally acceptable that human motor memory contains neural representations, known as the “internal models” of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment,
C. generally accepted is the fact that human motor memory contains neural representations of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment – representations known to be “internal models”.
D. the fact that human motor memory contains neural representations of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment – representations known as “internal models”- is generally acceptable.
E. it is generally accepted that human motor memory contains neural representations - representations known as “internal models” - of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment.


(A) The modifier which are known as “internal models” wrongly refers to environment.

(B) Using the phrase it is generally acceptable, rather than it is generally accepted conveys the wrong meaning.

(C) Awkward construction: generally accepted is the fact. The idiom known to be is used to mean recognised for; for naming, the idiom known as is appropriate.

(D) Wordy construction: the fact that. Using acceptable rather than accepted conveys wrong meaning.

(E) Correct Eliminates all the errors above.


Answer: E

- noun(s): neural representations
- prepositional phrase: "of the physics of the musculoskeletal system and the objects in the environment"

shouldn't the which refer to the noun, and not an object within the prepositional phrase?

Here "it" is a placeholder, i.e. it holds the place of a subject or an object phrase that is required to be shifted to the end of the sentence to avoid awkwardness:

To see you is good.
It is good to see you.: Placeholder "it" holds the position of "to see you".

That we found a way out was critical for us.
It was critical for us that we found a way out.: Placeholder "it" holds the position of "that we found a way out".

Do not search for an antecedent for a placeholder "it".

Can't the Which in the original sentence refer to the objects???

From the given original sentence how can we find out if internal models refers to neural representations or the objects??
