 Author: Suvankar8250 [ 21 Dec 2022, 00:35 ] Post subject: Re: 12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 7: The short lived Corsica Option A and Option C : 'for it's decision to grant' should be near the 'uniquely progressive nation', since otherwise the meaning alters and seems as if the nation was founded only for the decision to be made.Option D : 'uniquely progressive nation by deciding' is wrong since it emphasizes on the decision making related to full voting rights and since the decision was taken, the country should be progressive. The emphasis should have been on the decision to GRANT full voting rights.Option E : 'uniquely progressive nation in deciding' is wrong since the event occurred in the past and the usage of 'decision' in this scenario seems to be more appropriate.Option B is the correct answer.

 Author: Lizaza [ 21 Dec 2022, 03:32 ] Post subject: Re: 12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 7: The short lived Corsica To me, the key to this task lies within understanding its focal message. What did the author intend to convey?It seems that the message goes as follows: The republic was progressive, because it granted full voting rights when it was founded - and it happened in 1755.Which answer options illustrate exactly that? Both A and C focus on the date more than the message, so I eliminate them.Then, D sends the right message, but the preposition is wrong - it doesn't sound right, when you are progressive 'by doing sth'. So, we eliminate D as well.We have a choice between B and E then - and although we can sometimes express a reason with 'for', in this case 'in deciding' sound best stylistically. It's just a very idiomatic figure of speech: 'to be IN doing sth', which is used exactly to highlight how an action brings out a certain characteristic in the actor.So, idiomatically, the right answer is E.
