I rejected option D right after seeing comma before but. I didnt even read rest of the sentence.

Why comma is placed before but in option D ?

choice D starts with a head less modifier and such modifier should modify the noun immediately after comma.

Influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance is modifying contemporary ballet .

Option A ,C and E can be eliminated on the basis of S-V issue (contemporary ballet - permeate).
It was a tough call between B and D.

Sentences using but have to maintain parallel structure, i think there is a parallelism problem in B .
Hence D .

Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced by both classical ballet and modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet but permits a greater range of movement and may not adhere to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet

Contemporary ballet is a form of dance (influenced by both classical ballet and modern dance),
employing (the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet)
but permits (a greater range of movement) and may not adhere (to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet)

A. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permits a greater range of movement and may not adhere to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet - 'Both by A and by B' or By both A and B' is correct. 'employing but permitting and not adhering' shal all be parallel. That refers to immediate noun, so singular noun 'permeates' is required here.

B. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet but permitting a greater range of movement than classical ballet, and may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeates classical ballet - It should be adhering.

C. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and may not be adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet - That refers to immediate noun, so singular noun 'permeates' is required here. I think 'may not be adhering' should not be problem here...pls suggest.

D. Influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, contemporary ballet is a form of a dance employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and not adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeates classical ballet - Seems correct

E. Employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement , contemporary ballet is a form of dance that may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeate classical ballet - ''influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance'' is missing. Also, construction of the sentence does not seem right.


Although IMO is D by following my above POE but isn't there should be both ICs when Comma+FANBOYS is given ?? Here they are present participle phrases.

Please correct me if i am wrong somewhere..

Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced by both classical ballet and modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet but permits a greater range of movement and may not adhere to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet

A. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permits a greater range of movement and may not adhere to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet
Classical Ballet is singular and so "permeate" must reflect that. It should be "permeates"

B. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet but permitting a greater range of movement than classical ballet, and may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeates classical ballet
There is a problem with parallelism. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance, employing... but permitting... and not adhere. "Adhere" should be "adhering"

C.Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and may not be adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet
C. keeps the parallel structure of employing... permitting... and adhering... but fails to have "permeate" reflect the singular "classical ballet". It should be "permeates".

D. Influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, contemporary ballet is a form of a dance employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and not adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeates classical ballet ---

E. Employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement , contemporary ballet is a form of dance that may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeate classical ballet
The same error with "permeate" occurs.

The subject of the verb permeate is not contemporary ballet but 'strict body lines or turnout'. Ask the question what permeates? Does contemporary ballet permeate classical ballet? Or do strict body lines or turnout (hallmarks of contemporary ballet) permeate classical ballet?

Very good question Daagh. It took my at least 4 mintues to find the answer, but in the end I picked the right answer.

It was a tough, indeed a very tough call between B and D. I picked D.

On a serious note, I like this question very much. Can someone please explain why the option B cannot be answer.

I did this ques in 2 min just by focusing on the singular verb permeates. Since A or B is used..singular word should be used...hence D.
I dont know if it was the correct approach.

Hi Mango1banana,

The approach is correct. However don't generalize that presence of "or" necessitates a verb singular in number. Consider the following:

Either the Manager or his staff was responsible for the situation.

Either the Manager or his employees were responsible for the situation.

Both the above sentences are correct. The noun which is closest guides the verb.

D does not have 'may not adhere' to - how is that still ok? Changes the implied meaning right? (Unless the 'may not' is wrong)

I am not clear why you feel a present tense phrase 'may not appear' should change the meaning from 'not appearing' Would you pl elucidate?
Specifically to Dina, why do you suspect may not appear maybe even wrong? Will each give one's own perception pl?

Hi daagh Sir,

Thanks for your reply. Below is my understanding:

Use of “may” denotes possibility. 'May not appear' seems to me that there is still a possibility of appearing, whereas 'not appearing' seems to me that there is no possibility of appearing. It is certain that it is not appearing. So, according the original sentence, there is still a possibility of appearing, but according to the correct choice there is NO possibility of appearing. That's why it seems to me that the correct option changes the meaning of the original sentence.

Let see if i can do justice with this question. i took 3 mins and 39 secs to reach at D
May not adhere means that one isnt sure either it stick to strict body lines or not. and its also not parallel to permitting and employing
Employing X But permitting Y and Not adhering to Z

A.Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permits a greater range of movement and may not adhere to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet (employing and permits are not parallel) i guess even "may not adhere" is also wrong

B. Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet but permitting a greater range of movement than classical ballet, and may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeates classical ballet (comparison is wrong permitting greater range of movement than classical ballet..it means contemporaneity permitting greater range but not classical ballet) adhere to strict body lines OR Turnout *and* is wrong)

C.Contemporary ballet is a form of dance influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and may not be adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeate classical ballet (may not be adhering is wrong)

D. Influenced both by classical ballet and by modern dance, contemporary ballet is a form of a dance employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement and not adhering to the strict body lines or turnout that permeates classical ballet (right option)

E. Employing the fundamental technique and body control of classical ballet, but permitting a greater range of movement , contemporary ballet is a form of dance that may not adhere to the strict body lines and turnout that permeate classical ballet (May not adhere is wrong and it should be strict body lines OR turnout)
