Official Solution:

Studies have shown us that the benefit associated with conditioning a tough mental system and from continuously building emotional stability are synergized psychomotor functions such as coordination, flexibility and timing, qualities that differentiate a good athlete from mediocre ones.

A. benefit associated with
B. benefits associated from
C. benefits associated with
D. benefit resulting from
E. benefits resulting from


(A) Subject benefit (singular noun) does not agree with the verb are (plural verb). Since we are talking about multiple benefits, it should be plural. The phrase associated with is not parallel with and from. This implies associated is used for both associated with and associated from which is not correct.

(B) benefits associated from sounds awkward and incorrect

(C) Again we face the issue where associated with is not parallel to and from. Since from is outside the underlined part and cannot be changed, the phrase associated with must be changed.

(D) The phrase resulting from fits the sentence correctly. However, we are talking about multiple benefits here. So this choice is incorrect.

(E) Correct This options resolves both, the parallelism is fixed and benefits agree with the verb are.


Answer: E

Is not 'benefits from' better than 'benefits resulting from'?

If given that choice, will that be better?

Probably that kind of differentiation would not be confronted with in GMAT. The phrase "benefits resulting from" is correct enough, not to be one among the wrong choices in the exam.

But yes... IF both the options were there, "benefits from" would be better, since it uses less number of words to convey the same meaning.

Is there any way I can eliminate option B and choose option E instead ? Somehow I don't understand why B is awkward ... Please suggest if there is some other way I can eliminate option B.

It is about idiomatic usage- "associated from" is a wrong usage. The correct idiom is " associated with".

Plural "benifits"... the verb is "are".

There is problem with the latter part of the sentence:

..benefits associated with conditioning a tough mental system and from continuously building ...

The "from" in red font does no go with "associated" - "associated from" is wrong.

I am amazed 50 % of the population got this question wrong, this one was an easy pick.

isn't "benefits from" grammatically correct?

in this case, we could have "benefits associated with X and [benefits] from Y" ... wouldn't this be correct as well? one part has a conjunction, associated with , but the second one does not, [benefits] from , because it does not need it.

is this wrong?

thanks for your help!
